Shock collar rules anger
ANIMAL welfare campaigners say it is “extremely disappointing” the Scottish Government will continue to allow dog owners to use electric shock collars.
Ministers say new regulations being brought in will introduce tighter controls on the use of the devices than there are in England.
But Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club secretary said: “If the government supports a training qualification which allows electronic training devices, it will legitimise the use of shock collars.”
A Scottish Government spokeswoman said: “We believe the use of electronic training aids should be strictly limited and controlled.”
