Do LGD respect those collars that are supposed to limit how far your dog wanders from home ?

Speaking as the neighbor of someone who has repeatedly used them with several different brands and at least 6 dogs, no.

No, we don't generally recommend using an invisible fence with a LGD. LGDs are self thinkers who will respond to threats even if means taking a hit from a collar. Invisible fence can be useful to reinforce a visual fence where the dog is digging out or climbing over. The other problem with invisible fence is that predators, children or other people, or wandering dogs can enter your LGDs area. Again, your dog may view them as a threat.

Some folks in more remote areas do have success with powerful radio fences but these tend to be more range situations.

My fence isn't invisible but we had major jumping issues and chasing of the neighbors cows issues. So we extended the electric horse fence around the dog yard and our great pyr won't even get close to the fence now. It was on for maybe a week and has been off since. I'm thinking he took one hell of a shock.
 
If you are using a wood chipper, you are doing it wrong. Even on this tiny ad:
