The Gundog Club supports a ban on the use of e-collars

by Admin on May 20, 2018

The Gundog Club supports a complete ban in the UK on the use of e-collars to train dogs. While we acknowledge that a ban may not prevent their use completely, it would send a strong message that their use as a tool in dog training is unacceptable, and this is a particularly important message for people new to gundog training and dog training in general.

We fully support Defra’s proposal that it should be an offence to use an e-collar, or even to put one on a dog, or be in charge of a dog that is wearing one.
