This is something ALL of us need to be concerned about and I'll be writing to Hawaii to express my concerns. I will try to find contacts for the proper representatives to write and post them here after work. When one or three states institute crippling laws like this, it's all too easy for other states to piggyback and follow suit. Hawaii's dog law problems are our dog law problems.
You have to be smarter than the dog to train it.

The legislation seems to be directed at people who chain their dog to a post and leave it there. The e-collar issue seemed to come out of nowhere.
I won't describe the training methods used before e-collars but they were much harder on the dog. Are these people just "well meaning" or are some people buying expensive training tools to be cruel to their dog? It doesn't seem to make any sense. Where is all this coming from? Are non dog trainers buying e-collars?

I've seen lots of people who have e-collars and don't know how to use them, but I've never seen a person use one to be cruel to their dog.

My great grandfather used to say, the well meaning have done more damage in the world than any other group. This would support his theory.
