I had a East German Shepard. Named. Tyson cause he was a mean sob to other than family members. He figured out that if he got to a dead run acouple hundred feet he’d take that shock you could literally see him take it for the 2/3 seconds to clear the electric fence and he’d be out of his yard then. Wouldn’t do it to come back I had to get him finally I broke him of the habit by walking with a leash near the shocking potion at end of the fence and it broke him of running out of the yard. When I say mean. Not really a biting a stranger type mean but standoffish of people. Very good family dog with all children and very protective. I miss him to this day. Have had others but each dog as ya know have their own personality. And he was a Character

I have used shock type collars etc...a larger dog will run through an electric fence barrier and tolerate the continued shock for 20 seconds. I Don't like that. And I chose a multi function hunting collar. These work well but under windy and raining conditions the dog may not hear the beeping call, The cold is also a factor because the battery charge is expended more quickly, It is a complicated issue that inexperienced trainers must resolve. I learned it the hard way.

A wonderful video. I had a big "Choco" Lab name "Gunner" (2007-2013) . There is nothing better than being outside with a dog training. It challenges the dog and the owner, and both benefit .

I had a Great Dane that was like that. I lived out in the country. Turn your back, he's gone. I finally kept him in. I didn't want to find him run over. I didn't want to find him shot. I kept him in. He didn't like it. Tough shit. When I had him out, I watched him like a hawk. That's it. He lived 10 years, Much longer than most Danes.
