At the USD price of nearly $1,600 I don't think he's going to be selling many of those. Of course, at that price, he doesn't have to. lol

What do I know though, he's already backordered. Some people have too much money.

That is a very slick collar! Much better looking than the bulky box design!

LouCastle This legislation is a classic example of ignorant legislators being lied to by lobbyists and never doing their homework.

I saw some of the information that was being given to them, when various "animal rights groups" were pressing for the legislation. They had legislators feel the stim from an Ecollar and they were told that it was set "on the lowest level." They were lying. It was not set anywhere near the "lowest level." It was set quite a bit higher.

There has been at least one prosecution of someone whose dog was found wearing an Ecollar. The fine was quite high. Wales is the only country that has banned the tool. Some others place restrictions on them but for the most part, those restrictions are easily worked around.

In the rest of the UK an organization called DEFRA, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, which covers such things as farm animals and pets, is looking into Ecollars with an eye to a ban. That has been going on for several years.

Twyla Seems others have found him.

Due to demand outstripping supply, the Chameleon is now on backorder. The Chameleon will be back in stock around November 28, 2012 and will be sold on a first come/first serve basis.

Twyla I imagine it will be their version of 'see something say something'.

Article - Pet owners face £20,000 fine for using electric collars

Electric collars that shock wayward cats and dogs into submission have been banned for the first time in Britain.
Wales has become the first part of the UK to outlaw the use of collars, which deliver a shock of electricity to the animal's neck.
Some are activated by the owner, who simply pushes a button on a remote control when their pet misbehaves.
Owners who break the ban face a fine of up to £20,000 or six months in prison.
Pet welfare groups, including the RSPCA and the Kennel Club, say the £100-plus electronic devices cause unnecessary pain and suffering and want the ban extended across Britain.
