Make the charm pulse usable when running but make it an interruptible cast (not insta). Many self buff spells on Live work like this. You can cast them while running but they are still interruptible.
This way the Minstrel can't hold a charm if he keeps getting hit in combat. His pet will turn on him. If the Minstrel is able to free cast he can get his pet back (by mezzing etc. then getting a few seconds to re-charm.)
However the un-CC loophole should be closed. If the pet is mezzed/stunned/rooted, releasing it should not release the CC affect. Recharming should also not release the effect. That would go a long way to fixing things.
If a Minstrel lets go of his/her pet so that it attacks him/her to break CC, then the Minstrel won't be able to re-charm the pet since it will keep interrupting the Minstrel, if it's a system like I propose. At that point it becomes a hindrance rather than a boon. The Minstrel can either a) stay CC'ed or use Purge like everyone else, or b) use this exploit to break CC on themselves at the expense of having a mob constantly aggro him/her the rest of the fight.
