My bet is that a shorthair will serve you well. They are smart enough to figure out what you want, and want to please enough to do it for you.
Now if you had said, say, and English Pointer, I'd say you need to rethink your choice in dogs!
I have both...the shorthair gets turned loose every evening while I feed. As soon as I tell him to kennel up, he is back in the pen waiting for me to close the gate. If you think any of my E. pointers would do that, then you are mistaken. Sans e-collar, they are going to run until they run completely down before they are ready to get back into the pen.
