Genes are inherited, but the bitch also imprints her personality on the puppies. If she is anxious, or nervous, or hard to manage, she will pass that along to her puppies.
Great point.

Blitzkrieg1 Why wouldnt you use it? If your using it properly it causes less stress then a prong.

selzer How are you having pregnancy confirmed?

I would not use an e-collar on a pregnant bitch. I would expect her hormones to be out of wack and I would not punish her for that. As for walking her, I agree with using a prong if you must.

TaylorGSDT No it's not just for distraction training. Only part of our yard is fenced in, and walking her on a leash is impossible without a nick when she pulls.
