You are using the e collar wrong. This dog is too young for an e collar. I use e collars in training a LOT and you are doing it wrong.

Use a long line and teach her recall and use really good treats when she comes to you. This means you have to make the effort to go out with her when she goes out (which you should be doing anyway at 6 months old).

I would start recall when she is next to you in the house. Say the recall word and offer food at you. Make that word and coming to you the best thing the dog can do and reward it well EVERY TIME. If she offers to come to you have treats. Yes, it mean carrying little pieces of hot dog with you all the time so you can always reward the dog. It will pay off in the end.
