Yesterday I was horrified to be told by my local pet shop that people are going in asking for shock collars for their dogs. Do people realise how much these collars hurt and injure?
Some time ago a rather fantastic lady slammed a shock collar manufacturer on Radio 2’s The Jeremy Vine Show. Such was the passion and truth in the words spoken by caller Maureen Howard-Boiardi that I just had to track her down and ask her more.
I was delighted to interview Maureen for the podcast and hear her views on shock collars, on her own dog’s reaction, and that of her husband when she insisted HE wore it instead!

For our American listeners, Maureen is daughter-in-law to the famous Chef Boyardee – Hector Boiardi changed the spelling of his name to make it easier when people wanted to ask for his amazing food.
Want to see a shock collar in action on a person and say it’s just a ‘tingle’?
There are many many more films on youtube of this sort with added profanity, to prove the point – please take time to train your dog nicely.
