TCK9 is a learning institution dedicated to educating dog owners by teaching them how to communicate properly with their dogs. This will ensure a healthy, happier dog and owner relationship.
Through decades of educating dog owners and police officers all over the United States, we realize that 95% of all problems with our dogs start with us. Yes that's right, most problems are because of us. So we teach people how to communicate more efficiently with their dogs. By doing this we can eliminate those problems.
Our program was designed by a Retired K9 Police Officer who has imported, trained, certified, and worked on the streets as a K9 officer. He has trained and sold dogs to police departments and has been training dogs since 1984. They're probably less than 5 people in the United States who has imported green dog, trained and certified those dogs, and personally worked those same dogs in a big city like Chicago Housing Projects. What does this all mean? Well, It means the he was able to field test in own product and make necessary correction to guarantee optimum performance in real life conditions. Even the toughest dog still must be obedient and respond to training.
So we bring to you a program for Real World applications. What does Real World Application mean? Simply put, NO TRICKS, or TREATS. We don't bribe our dogs while training. Can any of our K9 Police Officers, or Military K9 Officers carry a bag full of treats to give to their dogs every time they ask their dogs to complete a task. No! These are some of the most highly trained dogs on the planet. The methods that they were trained in don't include treats. So why do so many civilians feel the need to discount the methods given to us by the proud and fearless dog teams that protect our country here and abroad.
The theory is sound and proven. It works from the biggest to the smallest, and TCK9 has produced many happy teams using these same training techniques. From the smallest house pet, or the high energy competition dog, to our dedicated police dog. It Works. Again the secret is Balance. Balance between correction, redirection, and praise. It's a team effort. When you're in the military and you do something that affects the team in a negative way, there is a consequence. It might be 50 push-ups. If you do something that affects the team in a positive way, there is a reward. It might be a pat on the back, a letter of commendation, or a promotion. We will show you that Balance.
