Greetings! First time poster here. I own two goldens that are home companions. Never hunted, but the female is more of a natural hunter and has the best nose on her than our previous four goldens. Anyway, we moved out to the country about a year ago and have 16 acres of virgin prairie mixed with some woodlands. Our dogs have always been on a leash when living in town and we would now like the dogs to be able to run off leash while we are outside on our prairie with them. We are very fearful of taking them off leash now because sometimes they will not come back to our call and take off. It has caused a ton of stress with my wife and so I am beginning my search for some electronic collars for them. I thought this forum would be a good start with it being a retriever forum. Can you please make some suggestions for an electronic collar for the dogs. I am not concerned about the price, but am interested in buying one of the best with a good range on them as well. Thanks very much for your help. Someday perhaps, they will breed a variation of the golden that doesn't shed so much. We have a dyson DC-17 animal which is a lifesaver and go through tons of clear wide strapping tape for our clothes, but it's all worth it for our goldens. They live a good life!
