Banning Electric Shock Collars for Dogs

Dog owners know training a dog, especially a young puppy, takes time and patience. But I don’t think trying to take a short cut by using electric shock collars is a good idea at all.

And I agree with the Kennel Club that electric shock collars used to punish certain sorts of behaviours in training dogs is bad for their welfare. This is backed by DEFRA research.

So I’m supporting the call to ban electric shock collars. They’re already banned in Denmark, Austria, Germany and Sweden and should be here too.
Anyone looking for help training a dog can try local classes in Gloucester - there are details on the Kennel Club website or via google: https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/…/dog-training-clubs-in-g…/

But let’s look after dogs properly and ban electric collars. If you agree then comment below.
