Take the Force-Free Pledge

Because I care about the ethical treatment of animals:

  • I pledge to use force-free training.
  • I understand that shock collars, choke chains, and prong collars are no longer a scientifically-sound way to train my pet.

Use of these devices can inflict injury and lead to behavior problems. These methods use pain and fear as motivation.

I will help dispel myths and outdated training methods by spreading the advantages of positive reinforcement-based training methods.
