Study Says Electronic Shock Collars May Distress Your Dog

A new study recently published by researchers at the University of Lincoln in England found that dogs trained with electronic collars (e-collars) were more tense, yawned more often and engaged in less environmental interaction according to The Washington Post.

Electronic shock collars are currently banned in parts of the U.K. and Canada.
