The Disturbing Scene Unveiled

The footage reveals a distressing scene where the trainers attempt to line up the dogs in a row. One trainer resorts to pressing on the hindquarters of the dogs, compelling them to sit, while another pulls a dog forward by its leash. The actions take a more alarming turn as the trainer grabs the dog’s side to forcibly turn it around.

In a particularly distressing moment, the trainer is seen hitting a dog after it lays down and then shoving it towards the group of dogs. These actions have sparked widespread concern and condemnation after being shared not only on Instagram but also on various other platforms.

Circulation and Response on Social Media

The videos, captured earlier on the same day, quickly gained traction on social media platforms, with users expressing their shock and outrage at the trainers’ behavior. The graphic nature of the footage has led to calls for immediate action to be taken against the individuals responsible for the mistreatment of the animals.

User @monkey_bear2, who posted the videos, took to Instagram to shed light on the disturbing incident. The user highlighted the forceful handling of the dogs, emphasizing the need for accountability and urging viewers to share the footage to raise awareness about animal welfare concerns.

SPCA Issues Statement

VIDEO CIRCULATING: ROUGH HANDLING OF DOGS BY TRAINERS

The SPCA was alerted to a troubling video surfacing online that shows two trainers mishandling dogs during a photo taking session.

Just like us, animals experience pain and distress. We appeal to pet owners to only use humane, science-based and force-free training methods. Positive reinforcement helps nurture a loving, enriching relationship with our pets.

Pet owners and trainers must refrain from using violence or intimidation. Hitting, hurting, or threatening animals can cause increased fear and anxiety, that could result in long-term health and behavioural issues.

If you or someone you know has had any negative experiences with the training provider in the video, please write to us at [email protected] so that we can further investigate the matter.

All information will be treated with strictest confidence.
