|Tormé is ok... as long as he knows the area. There's this long dike that runs for about a mile along this lake, the drop off and field is fenced off by the college campus golf course (fenced one side, water on one, and open gates at the beginning and end).
We start going here for jogging, then I tried him off leash and he's pretty good. Runs off a little, but when I call and start to head somewhere else he comes back. But one time we started as usual and he ran up to some girls jogging. I kept waiting for him to turn back around, but everytime the joggers caught up he'd run about 30 feet in front of them sniff around, mark, then they'd catch up and he'd continue again. He probably would've followed them for the rest of the trail (I let him get nearly half a mile down before I realized he wasn't coming back).
Then we tried the other side of the dike off leash another weekend. Bad idea, everything was new so he had to check out everything. Instinct kicked in, 3 miles later he stopped... only because he ran out of land at an overpass (we had left the dike and I was just chasing him along the beach).
