A local Quebec pet store has announced that it will be banning any aversive pet collars from being sold in their stores.

Despite many cities in the province having already banned collars built to harm animals for misbehaving, Mondou still had the products available on their shelves… Some of the aversive collars included choke, electric, vibration, citronella and ultrasonic designs.

Mondou’s dog behaviour consultant explained that, “Sometimes dogs bark because they’re afraid or because they’re excited and it’s absurd to think that a choke chain or a shock collar is going to make the problem go away. We have to understand how the dog feels to help him.”

Many people took to Facebook to thank Mondou for their stance and are proud of the decision the company made.

According to CTV News, “Mondou suggests anyone needing help with challenging pet behaviour can seek free advice in store, and should consider interactive toys to relieve dogs of boredom, as well as natural products designed to reduce stress and reinforce positive teaching of appropriate behaviour.”
