A good obedience course will give you the basics as far as recalls, stays and heeling
all things that will make your dog a great dog, having your dog in control through farm yards and pastures really impressed the farmer/rancher. Then you can work on reinforcing at distance outside the training facility. I trained bird dogs and was a judge at performance tests. A trained dog will respond to lips on a whistle, if you have to raise your voice it isn't trained. Dogs know how to hunt training teaches them to hunt for you and builds a bond with your.
If you get a collar learn how to train with it, not punish with it.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.
