FENCES | TRAINING
At Invisible Fence® Brand, we’re not just passionate about technology. We’re passionate about pets. That’s why you’ll find traditional, tried-and-true solutions, as well as innovations that are (literally) out of this world. They all work together not just to improve the way you live with your pet, but also to change it — for good. Invisible Fence systems are designed to work together—simply and seamlessly. With the same Computer Collar® Receiver, your pet can have safe yard boundaries, access our secure pet door, and learn better behaviors both indoors and out. Plus, all Invisible Fence systems include professional installation and expert pet training. So, whether your pet is the outdoorsy type, a couch potato, or somewhere in between, Invisible Fence has solutions to match. The Boundary Plus® containment technology solution was engineered to maximize yard space for pets on small properties where traditional pet containment systems are not an option. This containment solution prevents any “break-out” where a pet might run beyond the signal’s reach. That means there’s no chance for them to escape, and no need for you to worry.
I began training dogs almost 20 years ago. I started as an official positive reinforcement trainer at the beginning of 2013 and later started Three Little Pits Pawsitive Dog Training, named after my three adorable pit bulls. Along with a few private clients, I began volunteering with two local rescue organizations, Friends of Animals and Paws For Life, and would work with dogs that had behavioral issues in order to get them to the point in which they could be adopted. My pitbull Tacoma and I were members of Therapy Animals of Utah for four years. We started the Best Friends’ I Read to Animals program at our local library, so I love to work with people who are interested in training their dog to be a therapy dog. I have also trained service dogs for autistic children and adults with disabilities. Through Nuzzles & Co Pet Rescue and Adoption I offer puppy classes where basic obedience and manners are taught, as well as how to have a positive experience while visiting the vet. Early socialization and play with other puppies are emphasized in puppy classes. Nuzzles & Co also offers a variety of classes for adult dogs.
