I was wondering who lets their setter off lead in open areas (i.e. not fenced in)? Have you had any problems with you setter taking off on you? When did you decide that it was safe to take him/her off lead? I have had my setter for about a month now and he is getting to the point where he responds 99% of the time when I call him, even in distracting areas like the dog park, but I am still not sure about letting him off lead in areas that are not fenced in. I would like to know what other people's experience with this has been and any advice anyone has.
