I have a 5 year old German shorthaired pointer that is incredible. The thing about these types of dogs, it doesnt take much training. It is instinctual, you just have to bring it out. Considering the dog is driven to do what is instinctual. Dont worry about the shock collar, if the kennel is reputable you will not have an issue. Thnk of the collar as a tool and when used properly, it is fantastic.
From a K9 handler and hunting dog owner, I wish you would have tried to train him yourself. There is more gratification than I can ever describe with words seeing a dog go from green to proven. There really isnt anything more to training then sharp commands, definitive tasks and of course REPITION. Training a dog to do what comes natural is cake, your foundation is there for you...
If you are a green handler, just know that your level of acceptability is what level your dog will follow for obedience. Working a dog is a wonderful thing
