My dog is bad about coming back to me when off leash, but comes back on her own in the woods. Why?


I've always been curious about why Babe would be so concerned about where I am when we're in the woods together off leash. She runs ahead of me on the trail (and sometimes off) exploring but very regularly looks back to see where I am. She doesn't act that way off leash when not in the woods. What's the difference? What instinct kicks in out in the woods?
