Exclamation ISO Training shock collar

I have a GSD in desperate need of a good working shock collar to train with. we are limited in funds as my husband has been laid off and I enter into Chemo in January. We have a GSD that is a great dog but we have gone as far as we can with the tools we have now. She is at a point that she will do as she pleases and we want that to change. If anyone has one they would be willing to sell on the cheaper side or can donate we are trying to be the best owners we can on limited budget. ANY help would be appreciated!!!

Have you tried a prong? You can get good results with those, and they're cheap.

SPORTDOG makes a decent one at a reasonable price

I agree, the prong can get most things done for you. Shock collars can have disastrous results if used improperly and in my opinion, they are more useful for long distance corrections than anything else. If the dog is within reach, the prong is all you need.

If you can't train a dog without an e collar you probably shouldn't be using one

Definitely this. If you're really struggling without an ecollar then ecollar is not a good tool to go to without lots of professional guidance (working with an experienced ecollar trainer in person). Ecollars are not a magic wand that will train your dog for you and if you attempt to use it that way you can end up unintentionally doing a lot more harm than good.
Id definitely recommend trying a prong collar (and learning how to properly fit and use it) for starters and hanging around the forum where you can find some helpful training info. But theres not really any way around the fact that its going to take a lot of time, effort, and self motivated learning to get a well trained dog.

Please, please, please if you get an e-collar, check out Lou Castle's website. It gives lots of information and steps to follow. Do NOT use an e-collar w/o doing research on Lou's website or w/o a dog trainer familiar with how they are used.

You can make things much, much worse with an e-collar if you are not educated.

What kind of training have you done so far and what brings you to say that you are "in desperate need of a ... shock collar?"

How old is the dog?

The purchase of an Ecollar is really an area of getting what you pay for. I suggest that you not go cheap. Quality and features are lacking in cheap units.
