We also use the word sit all of the time when we are in a distracting situation. SIT! (ie stay) rather than 'come' is more achievable.
Totally agree with the sit command. Libbie got out of the yard once when I was out front. She was running around like a nut and was ignoring then "come" command. I told her to "sit" and she did it immediately. I was able to go over and grab her collar while she was sitting. Good thing or I would have been chasing her for hours I'm sure!

When he does this, he completely ignores me, "NO!" becomes meaningless, and he runs the opposite direction. The biggest issue in he does not come when called.

I have never used a shock collar, but am to the point of getting one just to get my point across, because he is NOT listening to me. We just had a two hour episode. What are your suggestions?
Try the suggestions made by others in this discussion. If they don't give you the results you want in a timely manner (for me that would be three four weeks, but you are the final judge) then take a look at this article on teaching the recall with the Ecollar.

http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...l-ecollar.html (Teaching the Recall With an Ecollar)

I'd strongly suggest that you NOT get an Ecollar and then just hit the button when the dog does not recall. Doing it like that can cause all sorts of issues since the dog won't know what the discomfort means.
