We live in an area where everyone has underground fences. Will GSP's respond and stay in a yard like this? We do have the woods behind us so we do have some wild life also such as deer / wild turkey's.

We live in the same type area,on 2 acres. Started training our dog at 6 mo. of age on a in ground fence. It's been approx.a month, and I'm confident she is contained at this point. We haven't experienced letting her out with wild life in the yard, where I'm sure when she's out wild life would not approach.

I put my GSP on the invisible fence at 4 months. She was a quick learner and really only went thrugh to greet the neighbor and his kids. She didn't take interest in other animals and birds until she was about a year old and she barks and chases birds constantly but respects her boundaries even when the collar is off. She may test them every few months bush I suggest a remote e collar to train her to respond to your call because they will tune you out if not trained of a consequence for not responding to you. I take mine everywhere and she knows her boundaries based on the lawn mower trails in the yards without ever being there before!!!
