Hi, I have a 10 month old pointer who has excellent recall but has become so confident. I walk her off the lead every day and she will run anything up to 150 yds away in the deep grass exploring. We go to a marsh where there are not any rabbits etc and she is in her element exploring, sniffing and checks on me visually often however, she is becoming overly confident and is now pushing these distance boundaries. She will always come back to a whistle and if reprimanded shows an acknowledgment that she has gone too far but instantly returns to hunting and gets engrossed again and slowly pushes that boundary. I know I am up against instinct here but it would be nice to walk "with her" and even if we walk with other dogs, she will be off in her own world much further away from me than any other dog seems to be. I have tried hiding from her and she always comes flying back but it feels like she "trusts" me to always be there and therefore can check in on her terms not mine. So my question is, how to bring her roaming back to within normal limits - will this get better as she matures. She is very good with other dogs and people so I have no concerns on that front. Not interested in a ball - rather other dogs etc.
