|We provide a variety of services for our students and their owners. We offer both on campus and in-home training, humane pet containment systems, and educational presentations. Heres a little more detail on each of these services.
Training for Dogs and the Humans They Own
Incidentally, all our training is individualized. We do not believe in group training. Why not? Because in group training, regardless of how good the instructor is, he or she must use a general approach, one that may be good for some dogs but not necessarily for all. As a matter of fact, weve identified about six different personality types among dogs. Each requires a different training approach. Simply, there is no cookie cutter approach to dog training. It has to be personalized to the dog and the dogs owner.
Humane Pet Containment Systems
At K-9U, we are great believers in using Hidden Fences. What is a Hidden Fence? Well its just that, a fence that you cant see but your dog knows is there. Hidden fences are not electrical fences. A Hidden fence system keeps an "eye" on your dog by transmitting a harmless radio signal through a boundary wire installed around your yard at or just above ground level. Your dog wears a lightweight collar with a receiver tuned only to the signal from the boundary wire. If your dog gets within 5-10 feet of the wire, an audible signal is emitted from the collar receiver reminding the dog to go no farther. If the warning is ignored (something that rarely happens after training), the collar emits a harmless correction which can be adjusted. Hidden Fences work with all breeds of dogs, 4 months or older. It is effective after just a few simple training lessons, even if your dog has behavioral problems. Also, theres no limit to the number of dogs your hidden Fence system can "watch." For further information check out FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions). Here youll find the most commonly asked questions about Hidden Fences. If you need more information or want to order a system, go to our Ask the Professor page and contact us. Well be glad to help.
