what kind of prong collars are you talking about?  If you are talking about the electric shock collars, they are a good useful training tool,TRAINING ONLY, when used properly. The thing to do is educate the people using these shock collars and monitor them. Do a background check on them and if they have any history whatsoever of animal abuse of any kind, it should be illegal, a crime, for them to buy them. In the hands of a professionally trained handler/trainer, they are very useful tools.  Now there is also a prong collar that has small spikes protruding from the inside of the collar that is used to control an unruly animal. These I agree should be banned. They are useless and if anything cause more aggression than control. I await your reply as to which type you are referring to.

I have just went to the site for the petition you were talking about. If the picture portrays the collar you are mentioning then yes they should be banned. Those are the spike collars I was mentioning. I have signed the petition. Please remember and bear in mind about the other type of collar that is also referred to as a prong collar. Their construction is a lot different however, as there are only two prongs approximately a 1/4 of an inch long if that that deliver a very light electrical charge used for training an animal. Again it should, as I said, be used by trained personnel only, and they are by their licenses held responsible and accountable for its proper use.   This "shock" collar has a small battery powered shock pack attached to the top of the collar, which looks like a small rectangular box. It is remote controlled and runs off four AA batteries. As I mentioned before, in the hands of a trained professional, they are a very useful training tool.

What I have seen of the best trained dogs, they are trained by reward, I have heard of these so called training collars, and totally disagree with them. I think if you hurt the dog, it could end up hurting you, an electic shock however light, is an aid for the trainer to get quick results? what happens when the dog is not wearing a zap collar?, no reward has to be best, the dog looks forward to training and interaction, I bet the dogs who are forced to wear those zap collars instinctively recoil from them, a dog that cowers is unpredictable. BAN the hateful contraptions.

I signed.  These collars are barbaric.  I believe love, patience and reward for proper/good behavior are the best training tools.

Well I signed, but this petition is targeted to all animal lovers.  What is the use of signing since it will not be sent to anyone?  To ban something you have to have either the government or some other organization the target of the petition.

Nyack, You signed on January 26, 2013.

Your signature has been delivered to:
ALL ANIMAL LOVERS

However, for this petition to be effective the "Target" should be to someone specific, who can make the change. Perhaps the company that makes the collars? Or someone who can actually change the use of the collars.

.

But good luck with the petition, and welcome to Care2! I do realize sometimes people need a little time to learn how to write complete petitions- but normally I dont sign, and I know many others wont sign either. Good Luck with it!
