Call me naive but I wasn’t aware that there was such a thing as “electric shock collars to train cats and dogs” with.
First question. Train cats? Really?
Second. What kind of nasty, incompetent bottom-wipe would even want to use an electric shock as a training tool? If you haven’t got the mental ability to train an animal through the traditional use of rewards (dog treats and tummy tickles are remarkably effective) then may I suggest that it is you who should be wearing an electro-shock collar and not your unfortunate, mistreated pet.
Third, “the association for technology in the protection of companion animals.” Protection? Really? If you don’t want your dog to get run over then might I suggest a leash! Also, if you don’t want your dog to worry sheep – use a leash!!! Don’t administer an electric shock and don’t try and disguise your barbaric desire for profit by saying its for the animal’s protection.
Well done the Welsh for banning these implements of torture!
Let’s hope the rest of the UK gets it’s act together and follows suit.
Finally. Train cats? REALLY?!?!?
