GILES WATLING MP PLEDGES SUPPORT TO BAN ELECTRONIC SHOCK COLLARS

Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity recently launched its #ShockinglyLegal campaign to help urge the Government to ban the sale of electronic shock collars. Giles Watling MP for Clacton attended a drop in event at the House of Commons to pledge his support to help ban the use and sale of these aversive training devices. Attending this event, Giles said "I’m delighted to pledge my support to Dogs Trust in calling for a ban on the use and sale of electronic shock collars. These aversive training methods are outdated and cruel, and there is no need for them to be used when there are so many positive training methods available. This is a hugely important issue for dog welfare and I hope my support will help make a difference". #BanShockCollars
