No, it's in home training. He comes to the house and shows you how to train your dog really. They guarantee their service for the life of the dog. In other words, if you are haveing trouble, he will come back to help straighten the dog, or you out? It's a ten week in house traing.Is you dog going away for 10 weeks? Are you working together with the deputy and if so how many hours? That seems like a long time to be away, if that is the case. Our trainer does a 1 week boot camp, often what I've noticed that at our regular training classes, these dogs have bonded to the trainer.
You just hit the nail on the head. He will not stay in the yard. A lot of older people walk around the neighborhood. Just the other day, he jumped up on a 70 yr old woman? Just wanting to play, but have you ever felt their nails?I personally would not train my dog with a shock collar. I have used a shock collar, but only after everything else failed. My oldest dog would run out of the yard into the street and other peoples houses. He doesn't go in the front yard often, but as time went on he would get further away. One day he ran out in front of a car. Thankfully the car did not hit him, but after that we put the collar on him and it worked after two times. Now he'll respond to just the beep. It was a last resort though.
