Certification

No other hidden dog fence dealer in all of KC has ADVANCED certification in gentle fence training.

The International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) awarded Roger McCoy, founder of Pet DeFence, Advanced Certification in “LowStress”™ light touch training in August 2004. 

We’re the regional leader in positive pet containment training

The International Association of Canine Professionals endorses Gentle ‘LowStress™’ Training, “So many presume that the use of electronic collars involve harsh corrections. This does not have to be the case as is proven in the ‘LowStress™’ approach. Many containment systems use a much stronger jolt in the training program. The dog will sometimes relate this strong stimulation to many things and what it learns we can never be certain, plus it generates a high stress level not conducive to its education. With ‘LowStress™’ the trainer guides, shows, gains understanding, and develops an appreciation from the dog of boundaries and where he is safe to play and have fun. It is responsible, far sighted and shows compassion to the dog. More than that, it alleviates the concerns many owners have that the experience of learning the containment fence will ‘hurt their dog’.

Pet DeFence was one of the very first companies in the world to receive ADVANCE Certification by the IACP in “LowStress” or “LiteTouch™’ training in August 2004. We were also the first professional dog fence company to submit (July 26th, 2011) the required professional reviews for the national ADVANCED level “GentleSteps™’ training certification in August 2012. We are the only “LowStress” or “LiteTouch™ certified hidden fence company in the greater KC market, and all of Kansas.
