Amazon UK bans Prong sales, U.S. Next?
 
Time to fight back against the "Karen's Cat" people.

Let Amazon know you don't support the AR crowd and their agenda nor propaganda. Naturally they use the ONE same picture over and over again to try a make a 'point'. Then they ask if you would use a prong on a child. Well no, I also don't feed kids raw meat and make them sleep in a crate either. :crazy:

Amazon UK Bans the Sale of Prong Collars | Life With Dogs

There is a petition now, with over 2,000 signers trying to put pressure and get Amazon to remove prongs from sale on their site here in the U.S.

Jeepers creepers, next they'll be banning all types of collars entirely :rolleyes: I'd love to send the AR people pushing this the study showing the damage caused by all the different type of collars and harnesses and see them sputter out excuses

I'd almost be willing to shave Delgado's neck to show that there are absolutely NO marks left by his prong :crazy:

Medieval torture devices indeed, it's almost laughable :p

This is so maddening . . And what about the dogs who cannot be walked safely without a prong? Is euthanasia preferable to the use of a prong collar?!

I teach obedience classes throughout the year. A few years ago, an elderly woman signed up for classes. Her son was serving in Iraq and she was caring for his large, exceptionally strong pit bull. The woman was very weak from ongoing chemo treatments. She wanted to be able to walk the dog safely. This was a case where power steering was necessary for her safety as well as the safety of people & dogs in her neighborhood.

I suppose the smiley, happy, utopian society people would recommend the ongoing, costly, and in our area nonexistent services of a behaviorist. But guess what? In the real world people have real issues with their dogs and they need various tools at their disposal.

Sorry for the rant - I just feel like banning prongs will lead to higher euthanasia rates for strong, large breed dogs. :(

I signed, if the AR people have their way there will be no dogs at all. Did anybody see a Youtube video about PETA a few years ago, about how they got into shelters, pick up pets and the percentage of animals put down by them was more than 95%. It was an eye opener. Bottom of the barrel if you ask me.
At a AKC show a few years back there were PETA people letting dogs out of crates, "To run free"

I found this, The picture that was caused by a prong is really a case of an embedded dog harness.

Thanks for signing! Please share the link to the petition on facebook and other sites. Let's send a message to Amazon and by default the AR people we aren't going to let them steamroll over us like they did in the U.K.

They do not speak for us nor do their views represent the majority of dog owners.

Every chance I can I try to politely educate people about the falsehoods and propaganda.
