Kasten’s Dog Training is a family run business that was founded to help you breathe life into your dog.

After 18 years in the corporate world as Director of Operations for a local company, Steve Kasten felt inspired to take a leap of faith and start Contain-A-Pet by Kasten’s Dog Training, a company that uses electric fencing to protect thousands of pets allowing them to play safely in their yards.  However, Steve soon realized that he wanted to do more for dogs and their owners.  He decided to attend a nationally renowned school for dog training to enhance his existing knowledge of dogs and their behaviors and become a dog trainer who also installed electronic pet fencing.  Steve has since attended many seminars and classes furthering his knowledge on dog training.

In April 2016, the new Kasten’s Dog Training facility opened and after 11 years of selling, installing, and servicing electronic pet fences, Steve, after much thought and prayer, relinquished his Contain-A-Pet license and made another leap of faith into full time dog training.  The new facility offers residency training, boarding, training classes, puppy preschool, and more.
