I'd disagree 100% with that. We have a 2 year old yellow lab, smart as hell, awsome hunting dog, but a dog'* instinct to go other places will take over. It'* only natural. We have put hundreds of hours into training him and he is very obidient.
We have an invisible fence on our property, I think it was around 3-4 hundred dollars for over half an acre.
