IMG_6922

Tactical K9 conducts another outstanding class for VLK Kennels in Denver Indiana.  This class is a Basic E-Collar course that will offer teams the ability to work their canine off lead and on their way to more advanced work.  It takes each team through proper E-collar introduction (using the tool as a communication device and not as a punishment tool).  The E-collar is one of the most misunderstood tools in the canine world today – this class will change your way of thinking.  We will be conducting classes every other month so please inquire to sign up.  Contact us at offleashtrainer@aol.com
