She does very very well for the most part for his young as she is. The biggest issues have been we've been going on walks, off-leash, show range out further than I would like and sometimes get up on the people's yards. I put the collar on her a few days ago and haven't done anything with it other than let her carry it, today on our walk when she arranged up into someone's yards I gave her two chances to come in when she didn't I just hit her with the vibration function. She came back immediately. She did it again about 15 minutes later and after the vibration she came right back, and that was the last time she did that. At the moment I just don't foresee having to use a lot of electricity but it's nice to have it if I need it. Thanks for the responses so far.
With my labs I worked them in open grassy area( I used a school that was near me) with a check cord as long as the distance I wanted them to range.....after some time they just learned where they should be in relation to me. Just became natural for them. If they dont come when you want them to....turn and jog the other way. Once they see you going the other way they WILL come running back to you.
