I would suggest you find a reputable rewards based trainer to work with. Even just a couple of personal sessions could make a huge difference in how you teach the dog things. I personally think some professional help is in order, and I would highly stress to not stim the dog with the e-collar while it is looking at another dog.
I'm not a clicker crazed zealot. I believe in balanced training that includes proofing behaviors with corrections. I also believe that showing a dog what to do in a given circumstance is far easier, and far better understood by the dog, than showing them what not to do. The right trainer can help you with this.
When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
