I agree with lopin that the prongs are indeed safe. We upland bird hunt and use a system from Dogtra for Dell. There are paging modes (vibration), a beeper for us to hear where the dogs are & shock should they get too rangy or scare up & chase something they shouldn't like a deer. Happened once, I would much rather shock the dog to break that focus than have him running for miles and god only knows what would happen. For us it is not generally used for behavioral issues but more as a just in case because we have a lot of time & money invested in him.
If I were dealing with a similar issue as the op, I would not hesitate to use a collar after exhausting traditional training methods.
