A new campaign to improve animal welfare standards in Guernsey is being launched today.
The Autumn Aversives 'Amnesty', launched by Canine Behaviour Guernsey and supported by the GSPCA, aims to raise awareness among pet owners about the damaging effects certain training products and devices can have on our animals' physical and mental health.
In dog behavior terminology, an “aversive” is something unpleasant that is used to suppress or diminish an unwanted behavior
An amnesty box will be placed at the GSPCA reception desk. People can hand in any aversive item anonymously.
