Sit Means Sit Dog Training Partners with SportDOG Brand® to Create Custom Remote Dog Training Collar
On August 1, 2007, Sit Means Sit Dog Training, in conjunction with SportDOG® Brand, will introduce “The Sit Means Sit Collar.”
(PRWEB) June 1, 2007 — On August 1, 2007, Sit Means Sit Dog Training, in conjunction with SportDOG® Brand, will introduce “The Sit Means Sit Collar.”
The Sit Means Sit Collar will be a cutting-edge remote electronic dog collar used in Sit Means Sit dog obedience training classes nationwide. Sit Means Sit combines the use of remote collars with traditional dog obedience training methods to yield well trained and happy dogs.
Electronic training collars give a small electronic “touch” to focus the attention of a dog on the command at hand. By using this remote control to “touch” the dog, the trainers’ commands are followed more quickly and more consistently. Remote collars have been used to train K9 units, agility dogs, therapy dogs and house pets.
Fred Hassen, CEO, of “Sit Means Sit” dog training said “Despite having successfully established Sit Means Sit and enjoying our growth in the dog training industry, we knew there was one missing piece – we needed our own remote electronic dog collar. It took us a lot of time to find a quality manufacturer who was using the right technology and who was committed to working with us to create the best possible Sit Means Sit remote collar. We’re so pleased to be working with a well established brand like SportDOG® and we can’t wait to see where this new relationship brings both of our businesses!”
Hassen has been waiting for this moment for a long time. In the ever-evolving field of remote dog training, technology is improving at a very rapid pace which means smaller collars and more convenience for dog owners and people interested in adopting remote electronic collars.
“This is a growth industry, and Sit Means Sit dog training has had an explosive year. We now have 26 locations and we are truly poised for great success. Our only obstacle was a lack of control over the equipment being used in our classes. With the addition of our own approved and brand specific remote training collar, we be that much more successful and offer another level of convenience to our clients,” said Hassen.
Hassen set out years ago to find the right equipment partner but it was difficult to find a well established company with the same commitment to happy, productive dogs who would also work with Sit Means Sit to create just the right collar. Additionally, Hassen wanted to be involved in testing and to ensure Sit Means Sit would be working with an industry leader – a company committed to remote collar technology and development.
“We needed a collar that was small in design, feature rich, and with a convenient and small remote control. We had watched SportDog and we loved their design direction as much as their company persona. We felt SportDOG® already had the smoothest stimulation on the market, and the most varied features in their products and we knew we could work together successfully to make all of this possible.”
Hassen explained, “Not only will we be selling the best remote collars for use with our training classes, we will also have a lifetime return policy so that any defective unit will be returnable with no questions asked. This is virtually unheard of in this industry. We love the fact that we will be able to grow and change with the company, and the industry’s changes.”
