i will be picking up my first GSP (6 month old) on friday (5 days) and i was just wondering what a couple of you the fellow owners did as for boundary training? i cannot afford an underground fence at this time nor could i install one due to snow and frost in the ground. just lookin for some insight and methods used by others. thanks!
You could use (temporarily) a check-cord, or tie-out. But keep an eye on them at all times. Sadie used one when she was that young, and would pull out of her collar (or jerk through the clasp). We did the tie out primarily because she was small enough to fit through some holes the rabbits had created under our fence, and she was also getting under our pool deck, which none of us wanted to chase her under. As previously stated, once the recall is solid it becomes less of a concern.
