Hendon MP Matthew Offord will speak up against the use of electric shock collars in dogs in Parliament tomorrow.

The politician is calling on a ban for the use and sale of the collars in England, and will present his ten-minute speech to the House of Commons.

The dog-lover says the collars, which emit a shock to correct an undesirable behaviour, subject the animals to unnecessary pain and fear.

I have had dealings with the manufacturer of these collars and they are very good at making claims that they are safe to use on pets. They are NOT safe especially in wet conditions when the dogs could get a shock unnecessarily. I really hope that this time the bill go's through good luck. Heather
