Last night Rip jumped over me and got out of his holding pen.

I was calling and calling, he just would not even look at me.

15 miles later he was ready and walked to the truck.

This one was $319.

I just hope this works.

I have had good success (WITH PROPER USE!!!) with my shock collar on my Lab. Make sure you know how to use it -- too many people don't and there are MANY misconceptions on e-collars.

Whoa! 15 miles? The boy meant business!

Good luck with the collar. I hope it works, especially at that steep price.

Yup - thats a hound! I don't blame you a bit. It sounds like the boy definately needs help to get him focused on you over the scent in his nose. E-collars are very good tools when used properly. Is it coming with a DVD on proper usage? Have you ever used one before?

My brother has one of those for his lab and it works well. I got one years ago for my male GSD but the one I got was cheaper and the range was only 100 feet. It did not take my dog long to realize that he could do the equivalent of saying "Hey! Look behind you! Could that be an ELEPHANT?" and when I turned to look, he'd be gone in the opposite direction.

Within range, it worked very well, with an ability to dial up the shock, or to simply use a warning beep. In fact, that is how I call him to this day: I verbally say, "Beep, beep" and he is at my side even though the collar itself quit working years ago. I never had to use the shock part more than the initial two or three times. He always responded to the beep when he was within range.

It's the underground fence that keeps him home now though. Outside our yard, he is not a problem and comes when he is off-leash.

Yup good collar - I'm glad you will be learning to use it with the trainer. It should give you a bit more freedom once he understands what the collar means. Let us know how its going & glad you did get Rip back last night. I imagine you had the shakes for a while after that adventure
