E-Touch ™ Training

 

E-Touch ™ is a method developed by Martin Deeley, Executive Director of the International Association of Canine Professionals and Director of the International School for Dog Trainers.  Heather Beck was taught this method by Martin Deeley and Bethany was lucky enough to be certified as an E-Touch ™ trainer from Heather Beck.

“E-Touch™, which Martin Deeley developed, is not a magic method it is a catalyst which can be incorporated within  training approaches to train even better. In training a dog we may use food, verbal rewards, tactile rewards, or whatever. The e-collar is a tool that can be added to the mixture to create something special. But with E-Touch™ the main principles of good training do not disappear, we stay creative, we do not depend on the e-collar for everything, there is no one best approach, it is not a race to see who can train the fastest. And most of all we work within the temperament and pace of the dog – reading the dog, and by doing so maintaining a true companion relationship is essential. We want a dog that will be a dog, will make decisions, and basically acts as a dog while remaining a partner and companion. E-Touch™ makes this possible, it is the most non confrontational and gentlest way.”

– Martin Deeley 

Bethany recommends the remote dog training collar, because it is the most successful tool she uses to gain your dogs respect and get them back on track. The price for unlimited private training sessions at our facility is $1,000 $900.  Each package comes with your very own remote dog training collar, and a free day of drop off training.

 

  • We will take the time to teach your dog to respond to the lowest level possible on the e-collar.

  • We will take the time to teach your dog exactly what we want them to do when they feel stimulation from the e-collar.

  • We will teach your dog how to be off-leash reliable, by your side, even when there are distractions around.

  • We will teach you how to correctly use the e-collar so that you are 100% confident that you can work with your dog when we aren’t there.

  • We will teach you many different ways to correct your dog properly, when needed.

  • We will teach your dog to walk on the treadmill (if you have one).

The remote dog training collar is NOT a “shock collar,” the collar Bethany uses gives off a very gentle stimulation, is extremely consistent, water proof, has a range of half a mile, and is rechargeable.  Not only that, we will also train your dog to respond on very low stimulation levels, levels that can barely be felt on a persons hand, so that your dog is not getting injured.

 

Along with our private E-Touch ™ training package, we also have our Group E-touch ™ class and Speedy E-Touch ™ class.
