BanShockCollars.ca aspires to stop the cruel and unnecessary use of electric shock collars to train and control pets. It's unforgivable that with all the science available on canine learning, we would continue to use electric shocks, a practice rooted in fear, force and pain. In addition to potential emotional and physical damage, shocks often exasperate existing problems or lead to new ones. Shock use ignores an animal’s sentience and the emotional lives they live. You wouldn't use a shock collar on your children so why would you use one on your pet?
