"Hi Susan - and Patricia, Yes, you're absolutely right. Cooper is a young dog and a good trainer and lots of patience is the answer. A solid long line is a very good help as well and our girl Joy is perfectly happy at the other end of that line,…"

"Hi Patricia I thought I'd give you another opinion to ponder. I do not believe in using any type of a shock collar. I live in Australia that has the most dangerous snakes in the world as well as ticks. I have owned English Setters for 26 years…"

"Get a hot collar on that dog. Add a GPS if within your means. You want to save your dog or lose him.....He is worth the coin and will be your pardner for many years."

"Maybe you could try a satellite GPS unit, made for pets, on his collar so you can track him? I have never used one, but they sound really good."

Cooper is 15mths old. A great man in the house but off lead, anywhere, he's off looking for birds, running with no end in sight. Almost lost him in the Wicklow mountains a couple of weeks ago. He swam across a river and ran up a mountain. We had to wait for almost an hour, praying he wouldn't head into the Forrest, before he decided to come back. We could see him but he couldn't hear us.
