Kasten’s Dog Training is a family run business that was founded to become the “True Pet Professionals”.
After 18 years in the corporate world as Director of Operations, I felt the need to take a leap of faith and start Contain-A-Pet by Kasten’s Dog Training, Inc. I had the desire to become a dealer for Contain-A-Pet a company that is protecting thousands of pets-allowing them to play, and stay, safely in their yards. However I realized I wanted more, I needed to become a Dog Trainer who installs Electronic Pet Fencing. So, I went to a nationally renowned school for Dog Trainers to enhance my existing knowledge ofdogs and their behaviors, where I received certification for obedience and behavior modification.
Collars or no collars? Clicker or no clicker? Treats or no treats? Positive reinforcement or negative reinforcement? The truth is that most methods have proven a certain amount of success, but few have proven the ability to withstand different circumstances, settings and distractions. Dogs are pack animals. That’s why my knowledge of dogs and their behaviors helps me read their personalities and make a professional evaluation for you, so that you will achieve your goals with your dog(s).
After years of training I still come back to: We have to learn to communicate to dogs at their level-not ours. Leadership, discipline and love are the recipe for success.
We look forward to serving you and your dog.
