Defra recently announced proposals to ban two types of e-collars for cats and dogs. The proposal is to make it an offence to use an e-collar, or to put one on a dog or cat, or be in charge of a dog or cat that is wearing one.
This would bring England in line with the law in Wales - where they have been illegal since 2010.
Electronic shock collars are sadly easy to purchase, these barbaric devices are used to deliver a shock to the neck, either via a remote or automatically.
The DEFRA consultation can be completed online here.
