Position Statement on the Use of Electronic Stimulation Collars in Training Dogs
It is the Association of Pet Dog Trainers New Zealand’s (APDTNZ) view that electronic training
collars used in the pretext of training is not just unnecessary, but it a form of cruelty towards
dogs. There are other highly effective, non aversive training alternatives and shock collars should
no longer be an accepted practice in dog training. There are decades of research indicating
welfare concerns with the use of aversive tools such as shock collar that highlight the ethical
implications of their use (Ziv, 2017).
