What's the silver clamp on the back of the collar?

It's a boglock.

That's the keyed lock which holds it on.

That reminds me of an incident when I used to work at the vet clinic. Not a pretty sight.

I'm down with most of your stuff, but that looks like it could kill me. :O

So are these the collars that shock when you get far enough away from the other, or that shock harder the closer you get?

These particular collars are combination proximity detection and remote control correction. The remote can vary the stimulous to an audiable beep to levels 1 - 12. It's a rather abrupt sort of pain, nothing damaging, but level 12 will stop a 120 lb dog from chasing after a squirrel, or more usefully- running out into the road in front of a speeding car.

The other mode is a wired and a wireless "zone" setup, where it acts as a wireless fence or a targeted zone deterrant. A wire can be buried that acts as a fence, and the wireless "zones" look like small smoke detectors, with a digital display where you dial the minimum distance that the collars must keep.

Some juicy details:

The proximity detection circuitry is smart, and will start out mild but can sense when speed is gained with "anti run-through" circuitry. It will quickly ramp to max stimulous if the wearer appears to be trying to 'make a run for it'.

It is waterproof, and operates when wet.

It has lithium ion rechargable batteries, that last for 5-7 days worth of runtime between charges.

It weighs about 3oz.

Note that I do not advocate the use of these in 4 legged dog training.
