I think the shock collars should be put on the owners ... NOT the pets.
In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

an animal would surely have had to undergo years of systematic abuse not to respond to normal training methods if applied systematically and with patience and love. I can not imagine any circumstance where I would subject any animal in my care with such brutal tactics. And, for those out there who might disagree, I have successfully retrained some doozies in my life. If you have patience, love and time, you can sort out a lot of problems in any animal (with the possible exception of humans, lol)
