Additionally, Kirk has taken courses in proper use of electronic training (e-collars) form Martin Deeley an internationally known dog trainer and expert with remote training collars.

Kirk also regularly trains and mentors new dealers for DogWatch, Inc. as well as instructs and lectures at our National DogWatch Dealer Conferences on all aspects of containment training of all breeds and personalities of dogs on electronic pet fencing.
