Electro-shock collars for pets will be banned

The Government of England announced that collars for cats and dogs will be banned

The devices provide up to 6,000 volts of electricity or spray harmful chemicals to control animal behavior.
Environment Minister Michael Gove said that this causes unacceptable "harm and suffering."
Wales and Scotland have already taken measures to prevent the use of electric collars.
Animal welfare organizations, many of whom were in favor of changing the law, welcomed this step. Nonetheless, some supporters of such collars accused Mr. Gove of having done a "full 180" after his department initially suggested that this year there is not enough evidence to ban.
The RSPCA survey showed that 5% of dog owners reported using shock-collars, suggesting that hundreds of thousands of animals will be affected by the ban.
While he supported the ban, the RSPCA criticized the decision to continue to allow electrical fences. A spokeswoman said: "in modern society there is no justification or the need to use devices that can compromise the well-being of cats and dogs, especially when humane and viable alternatives to training and keeping dogs and cats are available." The Dogs Trust said that electric collars can send beats from 100 to 6000 volts to 11 seconds at a time.
Dr. Rachel Casey, director of dog behavior and research at the Dogs Trust: "scientific research has shown that electronic devices that deliver an unpleasant stimulus have a negative impact on the welfare of dogs, so this ban will have a big positive impact on dogs in the UK." The ban on devices was supported by 74% of people in the survey of the dog breeding club in 2014.
The Dog Protection Organization said the ban would provide training for pets "with positive methods, free of pain."
The announcement follows the advice of the government, in which half of the 7,000 respondents stated that they do not want the fences to be banned. Mr Gove said: "We are a nation of animal lovers, and using shock-collars harms and hurts our pets."
He urged pet owners to use "positive teaching methods."
However, a letter sent from the department of Mr. Gov in February to the Royal Veterinary College, which, according to the Press Association, showed that there is insufficient evidence to support the ban.
The dog trainer and activist Jamie Penrith said that Mr. Gove made a "sharp" turnaround policy with no additional evidence.
Jan Gregory, a lobbyist for pet collar manufacturers, campaigned to prevent the ban on fences, claiming that they helped prevent some of the 300,000 cat deaths in road accidents.
He said charitable organizations for animals exaggerated the impact of a collar strike, which was about a millioule of energy, compared to cattle fencing, which was a thousand times more powerful.
"Hundreds of thousands of dog owners who use remote trainers do not deserve criminal responsibility."
