    Rick, it's your story, so it's yours to tell, but I've worked my GSP pup with a few bird dog whisperers, and they all tell me 'the wheels can fall off the bus at any time.'

    We train them, they may know who rules the roost, or that during 'work time' that any bullshit will simply not be tolerated, but at the end of the day they're intelligent curious creatures, just as we are, and just as I did as a child, are going to cross that boundary when out of sight...there's just too many damn cool things to smell on the other side!

    In regards to the bigger topic at hand, I run my guy in out of the way places off leash. He's always on an e-collar, for his safety, and yours.
