Ban electronic shock collars
Electronic shock collars emit up to 6,000 volts for as much as 11 seconds. Help us end the use of these devices by emailing your local MP.
We’re campaigning to urge the Government to ban electronic shock collars as a priority. Currently, no date has been set for the final stage of the law to be passed through parliament which would ban the use of electronic shock collars.
These devices work by giving electronic shocks to dogs through metal conductors, emitting up to 6,000 volts for as much as 11 seconds. While the intention is to teach a dog to avoid undesirable behaviours, these devices are cruel and cause pain and distress to the dogs they’re used on. Studies have shown that training using positive reinforcement methods is far more effective than electronic shock collars.
We’re urging the Government to follow through on their commitment first made in 2018. You can also email your local MP to help ban the use of electronic shock collars.
