That's good stuff there. We will use that Thanks Ames!Exactly! You say come and he better come. If he doesn't he doesn't have any business being off leash to begin with you hear what I'm saying? If your not fenced in keep him on a lead.
Get a clicker. That's how I trained my boy. I expect my boy to look at me when I call his name. If I am in the other room and call him,he is to come find me. When I say come I mean come. When I say sit he must sit. You can NOT repeat commands over and over an over. Then they do it on their time not yours.
To start. Indoors. Don't expect your dog to listen outside if he isn't doing it perfect inside without distractions.
Click and reward (cheese, liver, hot dogs something high value and what he wants, a tug toy something he loves best)
For like 10 minutes
Then call his name when he looks you in the eye you click and reward.
Wait for him to look away call his name, click, reward
After he gets it add other things. Sit, then click reward. Down click reward. Do this a few times a day. Then Do this while you are walking your pup on a leash. Call his name if he doesn't respond and look at you instantly in the eye pop the leash DO NOT REPEAT HIS NAME the goal is to train him to look at you and get good stuff. If the pop doesn't work make a you turn. Get his attention back to the walk and away from what he was looking at the made him not instantly look at you.
There are many ways to train take a look at some past threads and see many ideas. But do jot let your dog off leash without a fence. Even with great recall its still not a good idea.

all I am hearing are excuses. Why isn't your dog trained to not pull so your girl isn't jerked around? Seems like you are going for the "easy" way out and want to shock your dog instead of training it how to behave. I am all for training tools when they are used properly. Being lazy and not wanting to take time to train your dog is not using it properly.I am 850 miles from home and will be for a few more weeks.
My wife has a syn. disk in her back at L5/S1 and a morphine pump in her abdomen.
She can't be get'n all jerked around. And then there's the cat. He wants to play with the cat. But the cat don't get down like that, and lays around plot'n ways to kill him.
Ok first off if the dog understood the commands and was properly trained on them he wouldn't be blowing them off, he either wasn't proofed correctly or doesn't understand what you are asking. He's young, don't expect perfection, set him up for success, have you even tried boundary training him? Throwing a shock collar on your pup and giving him the juice whenever he doesn't listen or does something you don't like is how you ruin a dog, it can easily create aggression or fear because dogs don't think like humans. He's not going to understand shock=stop at some invisible line or shock=don't poop in the house. Train your puppy properly or give him to someone that will.That's the thing, there is no yard, there is woods, pasture and creekline a lot of it. We're country folk. This dog will weigh as much as my wife in 4/5 months. He knows what he's being told he just chooses not to do it. He's a male pit, he's gonna do what a pitbull gonna do... a little jolt, steer him in the right direction. Right?
