|My setter is now 5 years old and I am glad I spent about a year, when she was one, going to a good trainer (it was worth the money) and now we can go anywhere. I go hiking in the woods and she is free to run -- I think she absolutely lives to run. She tears off and comes back within 5 -10 minutes. The trainer had us do lots of basic on leash training, always with rewards, like sit/stay with me dropping the leash and going out of sight, etc. I also did a short agility course with her -- she did what she was asked to do, but basically wasn't interested.
I don't hunt so she's not trained for that but she would be great at it. If I were you I'd find a trainer. Joan
