I have a Labrador two years old, which I dont use as a retriever as no possibility for that here. Lovable companion.
Problem: we go for walks out to the field very often but once he is on the free, doesnt obey any order at all and races about chasing little birds!. He simply doesnt know me any more and comes back once he is tired of running.
Tried to make him obey me but to no result.
Thanks for your answer. Solution would be good for both of us !

What you need to do is practice in your back yard . Your should work whit him in a small area to start with. Don't run after your dog try to do the opposite run away from him and he will follow you. Once your ready to back in the woods tie him to a 20 feet rope, and when he's trying to go to far pull gently on the rope. And you can also bring some treats to keep is attention. In a few week you should see some results.

we had the same problem with our yellow lab.
we found that a sqeaker from a toy she had chewed out worked great. I put it in my pocket and when she goes to far I sqeak it and she returns imedeatly. a whistle may work also.
