Finally got a replacement collar yesterday and she's back to getting zapped! It makes her growl with frustration, but I was heartily sick of hearing her going off at the other dogs or whatever many times a day, and running out and waving a stick at her to get her to lay off. When I shut her in her area around the side of the house, like when one of the toddlers I looked after was going to be dropped off, she'd spend half the time barking without the collar, but today she was so quiet. My 7-year-old son voluntarily tested the collar today - held it on his neck and barked and said he got a bit of a zap! So apparently it works on children as well.
