So I work at a local Petco. I love working there, the staff at my Petco is always there to be the pets advocate.
Well the other day I was directed to the e-collar display case because someone wanted one. I just thought, "Yay, another person I can turn away from e-collars, and maybe get them into a training class."
so when I went over to help this gentleman I find out that he actually wants this e-collar for his cat, because she is peeing on the floor. WHAT?! I was shocked. I sat there and told him it was a bad idea and tried to help him figure out why the cat was acting out but it went in one ear and out the other, all he could say is "I've done my research and I know it works. So which one comes with a collar?"
Eventually I told him that if he wanted an e-collar he would have to go to another store because I was not going to sell him one.
Apparently the guy complained to the manager but the manager stood up for me and told the guy the same thing I did.
Holy cow this makes me not like people. If you're thinking this way you just shouldn't have an animal period.
