Elec­tric shock anger

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

An­i­mal wel­fare cam­paign­ers say it is “ex­tremely dis­ap­point­ing” that the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment will con­tinue to al­low dog own­ers to use elec­tric shock col­lars.

Min­is­ters say new reg­u­la­tions will con­trol use of the de­vices tightly.

Caro­line Kisko, Ken­nel Club sec­re­tary said: “It is ex­tremely dis­ap­point­ing that de­spite the large amount of sci­en­tific ev­i­dence prov­ing that elec­tric shock col­lars are a cruel train­ing method for dogs, the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment has de­cided to pur­sue a costly route to reg­u­late shock col­lars rather than im­ple­ment an out­right ban.”
