Banning Shock collars
« on: March 14, 2018, 10:02:52 pm »
Finally Wales are following the example of Scotland and banning these barbaric devices and hopefully England will too

but there is always the minority who think bullying and punishment is the best way to train - and he has a bullie :( :(

Obviously he is a canine expert having walked dogs for a whole year LOL >:( >:( Would never let him near my dog :-[ :-[ :-[

Mr Carré, who has been a professional dog walker in Jersey for over a year, said he believes that a recent call to ban the training devices by a local group of animal experts is part of a wider problem concerning dog discipline as a whole in the Island....

Mr Carré added that he had also used the training device on four of his clients’ dogs with behavioural issues.......

Mr Carré owns two dogs – an English bull terrier called Gus and an English bulldog called Odge – that he described as well behaved, despite saying that both breeds have a reputation for being aggressive....

Carré added that the training devices were the best way to discipline a dog.
‘Yes, I believe it works best. With just three shocks in an hour you can completely change a dog’s behaviour.’
