Shockingly Sad

Post by sweetpea » Sun Oct 08, 2017 3:01 pm

I went to collect a chair from a gumtree advert yesterday. ...the couple seemed very nice ,they had a lovely lakeland X Schnauzer who was very excited ...when they put him down for me to make a fuss of him i noticed he had on what i thought was a spray collar ...Sadly it was a Shock Collar smiley-sad010.gif for his barking ...its on the lowest setting ...i asked if they had tried positive training with him ..and tried to explain calmly that he was only doing what came naturally to a terrier and especially a schnauzer X. ...i think it fell on deaf ears ...he was only a small dog and to think every time he barked he received a shock has made me really upset and so so saddened. ..i left saying even the RSPCA are trying to ban the selling of shock collars in this country and asked them to think of another way of controlling their dogs barking ... some humans are awful ...... smiley-sad010.gif
