The money we raise during the initial 8-week Never Shock a Puppy campaign will support this like-minded and worthy cause.
Essentially, the money raised will buy 165 or so replacement dog collars or dog harnesses.
That’s 165 dogs who will no longer HURT in the process of learning.
Simply put, they have the resources and the staff do what we cannot, and that’s give MANY people (in Boulder, Colorado) new humane dog training tools in exchange for their pain-based collars.
We’re proud to partner with them on this effort because indeed there are other “humane societies” and animal rescue organizations that use shock collars and other punitive training tools/methods on dogs in their care.
Our philosophies and motivations are the same:
- We want to improve the lives of dogs.
- We believe in humane, positive-reinforcement dog training.
- We oppose dog training methods that use pain-causing tools, punishment, and intimidation.
- We believe that educating people and giving away humane dog training collars and harnesses matter.
We cannot change the whole dog training world, but we can improve the lives of individual dogs.
We selected the Humane Society of Boulder Valley not only because they share our vision for pain-free dog training, but also because that’s where Roxanne Hawn (Never Shock a Puppy founder) adopted Lilly, the canine heroine of Champion of My Heart, a dog blog where everything is a work in progress.
