I am always against more laws. If someone is abusing their dog, they should be charged with animal cruelty, which is against the law. One would have to be able to prove it though. So unless there is burn marks, it would be hard to do.
Here anyway, we have bigger fish to fry. Terrible injuries are done by collars. Maybe they should ban them. Inbedded collars are the worst.
And yet, I have never heard anything like: Joe EvilPuke was given 3 years for animal cruelty when his dog was brought in with an embedded collar that was infested with maggots.
Nope. There is no statement on the rules and regs when you get your dog license: "Check your puppies collar every couple of weeks to make sure it isn't cutting into its skin." There are no posters out there that say, "If you dump your puppy with a collar on, and it gets embedded, you will go to prison."
Ok, I will step off my soap box now.
TLDR: I don't like e-collars, but I don't want them banned.
