The e-collar is a tool. Just like any training tool it can be used correctly or incorrectly. If the dog needs the E to walk nicely on leash then the tool has been used incorrectly and relied on for control instead of used to train the dog. It has nothing to do with whether or not a relationship has been developed with the dog. The same thing could be said about more PP favored training aids like head halters, no pull harnesses, etc. If your goal is for the dog to walk nicely on a loose leash then he will need to be trained to walk nicely on a loose leash.
