Ban Electric Shock Collars That Hurt and Traumatize Dogs

Target: Dr. Karsten Brensing, Head of Animal Welfare – German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture

Goal: Ban the use of electric shock collars on dogs to prevent unnecessary pain and suffering.

The use of electric shock collars on dogs is a barbaric practice that has no place in modern society. These collars deliver electric shocks to dogs as a form of punishment, which can cause significant physical pain and psychological distress, leading to long-term harm. It is our responsibility as pet owners and animal lovers to ensure the well-being of our furry friends and to advocate for their protection from such unnecessary harm.

Positive reinforcement and reward-based training methods have been shown to be more effective than the use of electric shock collars in modifying behavior in dogs. These methods strengthen the bond between dogs and their owners and improve their overall well-being. Moreover, the use of positive reinforcement training methods promotes a more harmonious and respectful relationship between pet owners and their pets.

It is important to note that the use of electric shock collars on dogs is not only inhumane but also illegal in many countries. For example, in the United Kingdom, the use of electric shock collars on dogs has been illegal since 2018 due to animal welfare concerns. Together, we can protect our furry friends and ensure their well-being by advocating for humane training methods and raising awareness about the harm caused by these devices.

Sign the below petition to urge Dr. Brensing to take action and ban the use of electric shock collars on dogs.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Brensing,

I am writing to urge you to take action and ban the use of electric shock collars on dogs. These collars emit electric shocks as a form of punishment or negative reinforcement for behavior deemed undesirable by the owner. This practice can cause physical pain and distress to dogs, leading to potential long-term physical and psychological harm.

Positive reinforcement and training methods are more effective and humane alternatives that do not involve the use of painful stimuli. With this alternative in mind, the continued use of these devices on dogs could easily be banned to prevent unnecessary pain and suffering.

I urge you to take action and ban the use of electric shock collars on dogs to ensure their well-being and protection. Thank you for your attention to this important issue.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Anyone who feels the need to use such a barbaric and cruel thing as a shock collar should not be allowed to have a dog. These things are horrible, they are painful, they serve no purpose except to scare and traumatize the dogs. They train a dog to fear the jerk who controls the collar, they make them less of a dog and more a method for torture for an unstable and sick human. Ban these evil and uncivilized collars.
