Re: Toronto Choke Chain / Prong Collar Ban

I also came across this; so does new by-law apply to all dogs in training facilities, walking down the street, or just Public dog parks? (I will research more, but if someone has a definitive answer go for it!)
As it is already known, eCollars are currently banned under the guidelines of City Parks and Animal Services. As eCollars are used for (discomforting to painful) punishments to dogs, it makes sense. However, there are still Choke chains and Prong collars allowed in Public Off-Leash Parks. Besides posing a risk to other dogs who can still get their lower jaw caught in these collars (they have NO quick release mechanisms) they also pose a risk to humans who may have to break up two dogs from fighting; these risks include avulsions, punctures or severe lacerations. Off Leash Parks are not a place for these instruments.
