Petition Action

Ban the sale and use of prong/pinch and shock collars.

Petition Details

I would like to see prong and shock collars use on dogs a thing of the past. I would like the government to ban of sale and use of the cruel practice of prong and shock collars on dogs in the U.K.. and implement it under animal welfare act. Not only do they cause physical damage but mental damage.

Additional Information

Using such collars is an extremely cruel and outdated way to train a dog. Not only do they cause fear but the physical and internal damages are incomprehensible.
Pronged collars (also known as a pinch or constriction collar) are made of metal and are designed to tighten around a dog’s neck whenever pressure is applied. This can cause possible damage to the windpipe, nerves and other tissues.
