Sale And Use Of Shock Collars For Dogs

EDM number 860 in 2017-19, proposed by Tommy Sheppard on 24/01/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Animal welfare.

That this House believes that dogs should not suffer pain during training as it is ineffective and cruel; considers that there is legitimate and growing public concern about the use of electronic shock collars and other forms of electronic training aids that can cause pain or distress to dogs, while recognising that some specific devices, such as collars which only vibrate and do not cause pain or distress, if used responsibly offer potential benefits in certain circumstances such as when dealing with dogs suffering from hearing loss or communicating with dogs over a distance; congratulates the Scottish Government on using its devolved powers to introduce a ban on electronic training devices that cause pain or distress to dogs in Scotland; recognises that the power to ban the sale of those harmful devices lies with the UK Government; and calls on the UK Government to ban the distribution or sale of any electronic training device for dogs that is capable of causing pain or distress, and ensure it is an offence to cause pain or distress to dogs through the use of such devices in England.

This motion has been signed by a total of 50 MPs.
