Ban the Use of Aversive Training Collars
The Mayhew Animal Home is calling for a total ban on the use of aversive training collars and we’re asking you to join us and sign our petition against their cruel use. Prong and shock collars are often used as a training method by means of inflicting pain on the dog to modify behaviour. The collars can cause serious physical injuries, especially when misused, such as sprained necks, oesophageal damage, vertebrae damage and even death by strangulation.
Mayhew CEO, Caroline Yates, says: “It is shocking that these types of collars are still readily available in the UK. We are supposed to be a nation of animal lovers but these collars are plainly torturous and totally unnecessary”.
