My first shock collar had 6 levels of stimulation. Level 1: the dog could not feel it. Level 2: the dog would cry out in pain. I needed something in between. The term for this is "overstepping". Having a collar with a lot of levels means that the intensity difference between adjacent settings is a lot smaller. Which means you will be less likely to overstep.

Before I begin, let me say that if you decide to use one I recommend that you not refer to it as a "shock collar." The very name sends some people into paroxysms of fear. "How can you be soooooo cruel to shock your dog!!!" BTW, before we get too deeply into this topic and everyone starts calling the Humane Society on me, let me explain what the stimulation is like. If you have ever dragged your shoes across a carpet and then reached for a doorknob and gotten a shock you have received the same sort of stimulation as comes from the Ecollars. It is unpleasant, but does no physical damage. I have given myself thousands of shocks from the collars in demonstrating them and insist that my clients receive stimulations from the collars as well, before using them on their dogs. In another situation a dog knocks over the trash cans and eats the garbage. The handler puts a collar on him and next time he approaches the trashcan the handler gives the dog a high-energy jolt of electricity. In this case the dog is conditioned that the trashcan is hot and shocks him when he approaches it. He learns that approaching trashcans is an unpleasant experience. Boundary collars shock or vibrate when the dog is close to the set boundary lines. These collars are meant to keep the dog on the premises of a property without a visible fence.Although the term "shock collar" has fallen out of public favor in recent years, behavior modification systems for pet and working dogs are often still used as part of a larger training regimen.Construction and design are important considerations when choosing a dog training system. Some shock collars are completely waterproof for outdoor use. Others are intended for short-range, indoor use. Some collars are designed to fit larger dog breeds; others are suited for smaller pets.
