  5. Hi all i need some help we tried to correct the Behaviour by useing high value treats toys and trying to distract him but when he gets fixated on swifts and other birds he will not respond to the recall command and he just run's after them ,we put a long lead on him but what can we try and get him out of this Behaviour,he is ok with the recall when there are no distractions like this .he responds to sit ,stand,down,stay and is very good considering he is only 20 weeks old have anyone got anything i can try that will help improve the recall command and reinforce it .i have lost confedents in letting him run off the lead since he as started chasing birds as we don't want him runing off or getting killed on the roads .
