Default Golden Retriever w/ Selective Hearing...

hey everybody! i have a three year old golden retriever named penny, and she's the most disobedient dog. my dad took her to obedience school last year but she's a dropout... haha. we're looking into another obedience school this summer and i'd be taking her, but i was hoping i could get some advice from you all first!

i think she just has selective hearing because when we're in the house and i
call her, she comes really well, but if she ever gets out of the fence, it's
impossible to get her to come- she just runs around sparatically. although we
have found recently that if she's out of the yard for awhile she will eventually
come back. i'd prefer though to avoid the possibility of her being hit by a car.

i've been doing some agility (jumping mainly) with her actually, but she has to
be on one of those expanding leashes, or else she just won't pay attention, at least not for any decent amount of time, or enough to do a course. i have more questions regarding some agility stuff, but if she won't come, then getting any better in agility just isn't going to work out. i think she enjoys it, really- but she just has the attitude, "well if you can't make me, then i'm not going to!!"

any suggestions of how i can break her of this habit? i'd really appreciate it!! thanks!! -meg
