    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to the forum and was most interested to read the discussions on the pointer field training and recall.

    I have a four year old english pointer called Monty who is an absolute dear and,by and large,is no problem to walk off the lead EXCEPT when there are small birds (swallows ect) around. He will chase them until he is completely exhausted and all attempts to recall are useless.

    I have contemplated buying an electric collar but am reluctant to cause any pain to the dog in any way but I am currently at a loss as to how to stop this distressing trait.

    Is there anyone out there who has a simelar problem or any remedies.

    Hi and welcome!

    I would post this under the "Dog Training" section as well, you'll get more replies and help that way. :)
