A Name, A Label A Philosophy - Let's Join Together To Stop Shock!
The bottom line is that it is entirely possible for pet industry representatives to support professional autonomy and the use of a humane hierarchy, while also taking a stand and position against the use and application of electric shock as a “training method.”
So today and in the future we call on fellow industry professionals and associations, animal welfare organizations, and professional animal training and behavior bodies worldwide to stand together, to collectively reach out to, engage and educate pet owners in the implementation and practice of humane, kind and effective training tools and techniques.
We encourages all organizations to embrace the vast body of scientific research that details the many advantages of positive training methods, and publicly say “no” to any technique or equipment that delivers electric shocks. So to all the umbrella bodies in our industry please support The Shock-Free coalition. Say No to Shock! – sign the pledge and help spread the word.
