Liesje Shock collar and e-collar are the same thing (to me at least). If you mean a bark collar vs. e-collar, based on your post the bark collar is not going to work for you. It will shock when she barks, period, because it's activated based on the dog barking. If you want to control it (sometimes allow it and sometimes not) then you need a different tool that will allow *you* to enforce a command.

jocoyn Take a look at this. I have trained a dog to stop barking on command using clicker training. I would start there FIRST.

So now she may think, if she gets shocked every time she sees a kid, that kids bring bad things. Making her fear worse.

I guess I should clarify that the barking is not always out of fear. She barks at cars, when people (she knows and loves) come to the home, when she gets rowdy, etc. My main goal is for her to understand that when I tell her to stop, she needs to stop. I am not bothered by her being vocal-she's always been a talker but I do need her to stop when I say stop and right now I feel I have very little control over that!

E-Collar vs Electric No Bark Collar? Need help!

My 2 year old GSD is a barking maniac. She barks at every one when we're outside. I don't mind the barking but I want her to stop when I say. She's a very sweet, timid dog and it is mind boggling to me that she would bark at a small child. I'm guessing she's fearful.
Long story short-I want to rid her of this habit. Mostly to know it's ok to bark but that she needs to stop when I tell her too. Normally, I have to stop what I'm doing and stand in front of her to break her concentration on whatever she's barking it.
My question is-should I go with a traditional "shock collar" or can I use an e-collar. I am hoping I can use the e-collar to break the bad habit of barking when I ask her to stop as well as to train her to be more obedient. Is the e-collar effective for barking or should I just get the no bark collar? I'm currently looking at the Dogtra YS500 and the SportDOG NoBark 10R.
Any and all input it appreciated! I just want her to be safe and both of us to be happy
