UPDATE FROM NOV 11, 2022 ON THE BAN
“Great news!!! At tonight’s Animal Control & Welfare Commission meeting…hundreds of people attended and almost two hours of public comments were heard. There was an overwhelming outcry from incredibly accomplished dog trainers (including Michael Ellis, Ivan Balabanov, Robin Macfarlane, Francis Metcalf, and many more!) as well as dog owners, law enforcement officers, and veterinary professionals opposing the ordinance to ban e-collars in San Francisco. An extraordinary number of people voiced their concerns for the many communities this would negatively impact. There were so many people who called in that were not heard, it’s possible that the number of attendees glitched the system as many callers were skipped �
This powerful response lead to several Commission members (who voted in support of this ordinance at previous meeting) to reconsider their position until they’ve had a chance to hear the opposing side and do more research. They voted to hold off on sending the drafted legislation + letter of support to SF Board of Supervisors *for now*, pausing this ordinance proposal from moving forward. The discussion will be revisited in January…which gives us enough time to organize and put together a presentation, backed with research studies and testimonials from dog owners, trainers and veterinary professionals.
If you haven’t already, please consider joining IACP as a member. They are incredibly passionate in supporting opposition of training tool bans, are an incredible resource, and have time and time again advocated for canine professionals and dog owners against unfair and harsh regulations.
THANK YOU to the many people who have signed, shared, written to city officials, called in tonight and helped us make this happen. We could not have done this without your support.
This isn’t over! We need as many San Francisco dog owners and canine professionals to submit their personal experience with E Collars. We are incredibly grateful that the Animal Control & Welfare Commission is allowing us a chance to show the many positive ways that proper use of E Collars can improve the lives of dogs, their owners and the community.” – Dr. Mary Ann Diorio
