I've been asked a question by a work colleague. He has taken on a year old Braque pointer, and is having no luck training in recall, even with the help of a local dog trainer. The dog is purely a pet, not for working, but does get exercised up in the hills in proximity to reds, roe hares etc, and is prone to disappearing with his nose to the ground.
The dog will not respond to the usual recall/reward, and has no interest in food treats or praise.
Any suggestions, sorry helpful suggestions, appreciated.
