The History of GentleSteps™

In 2001, a very good friend of ours, Hidden Fence of New Jersey Owner & Industry Renowned Dog Trainer Rich Weinssen, revolutionized the pet containment industry with the most gentle training process ever seen in this field.
Rich’s approach begins at low, tickle levels for conveying location information, and then a progressive increase in pressure once the dog learns and is challenged with real life distractions. This gentle process was introduced publicly at the March 2002 International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) annual meeting.
