I have a huge problem with my two english pointers. I live in a farm and they often run away from 2-8 days. They killed a lamb recently. I only had one pointer and it never ran away, I bought another pointer puppy and when he grew up they began escaping. I dont know what to do. They come back from 2-4 days for food and shelter and they leave again. PLEASE HELP

An underground electric fence might be your answer. They work great but do require training on the part of both human and canine. Stick with it and in two weeks your dogs will never run off again. Either that or keep them kenneled. Sounds like they are on the fast track to get hit by a car, shot by an angry farmer or poisoned with coyote bait...
