it is not definitly not necessary to have her on leed all the time! as with any pup, keep her on in hazardous areas-(duh) but our nine month old dingo pup is fine on runs with us in open space parks. you other dogs will help a lot too. they probobly have known about her condition for longer than you have! most jack russles stick right around anyway...now if your lab was deaf, you'd have big trouble!
