I just wanted to know if thete is a difference between a shock and e-collar. Like, will they achieve the same results for me which is stopping unwanted behaviors such as chasing other people and jumping on the fence?

the name Shock collar is used by people who don't like them. E-collar is the name used by people who do. If you want to use one I recommend you find an excellent trainer. Face to face is best. Larry Krohn wrote a very good book about it. When he trains people he will have them practice on him so that he knows they understand the concept.

I agree with @car2ner. Larry Krohn also does give great advice. I do think a lot of people associate shock collars with things like bark collars. More commonly e-collars are used in training as an accountability tool. The stimulation on an e-collar can be paired with a vocal command/correction to reinforce what you want done or have the dog stop a bad behavior. Its not a one dimensional tool. Some e-collars also have noises as an option alongside the electric stimulation. If you have ever felt an e-collar on your hand it actually takes quite a bit for you to even feel it or get uncomfortable. If you want to use an E collar correctly then I suggest you reach out to a professional to assist you in person or do some serious research so you dont end up doing the opposite of what you want to achieve. I personally have used one with great success.

Ok thank you. I just wasn't sure if there was a difference because shock sound more cruel, but it is just static. I will definitely do some more research.
