Project Trade Update: More Aversive Gear Swapped for Service Discounts

B

reanna Norris of Canine Insights in Pittsfield, Maine took top honors as Ambassador of the Month in November, 2016 by trading one choke collar, one shock collar and a Pet Corrector spray canister for service discounts. Meanwhile, Pam Francis-Tuss of Obedient Pups Professional Dog Training in Sacramento, California secured a shock collar. Daniel Antolec of Happy Buddha Dog Training in Brooklyn, Wisconsin represented the Midwest and swapped a choke collar. “A shock collar slipped through my hands as the owner chose to return it to the retailer for a refund rather than swap it,” said Antolec. “Even though I missed the chance to add to my collection, I am happy that her dog will never know the sting of electric shock." December 2016's Project Trade Ambassador was, for the third time, Anastasia Tsoulia of Hug 4 Pets in Thessaloniki, Greece who swapped four prong collars for service discounts. Congratulations also to Agnes Kavalecz of Let's Get Pawsitive in Cameron, North Carolina, who collected three prong collars.
