RADIO SYSTEMS GAINS ENDORSEMENTS FOR UNIQUE LOWSTRESS™ CONTAINMENT TRAINING METHOD

(March 28, 2002) Knoxville, Tennessee — Radio Systems Corporation, manufacturer of Professional Pet Safe® Brand training products received an enthusiastic response and several endorsements after introducing their new “LowStress™” containment training approach at the annual International Association of Canine Professionals membership meeting.

Radio Systems LowStress™ Training approach was presented by Professional Trainer and Behavior Specialist Rich Weinssen and Containment Expert Lester Pullen.  “Radio Systems created a new standard by offering the widest range of stimulation adjustment along with two ramping options in a containment product” explained Rich Weinssen, who created the LowStress™ method.  “Dogs learn the boundaries faster and with more clarity following this gentle approach.”

Since the sixties, pet dog training has been evolving towards more helpful and positive teaching styles. This LowStress™ Containment Training approach suggests a radical departure from the high stimulation levels used for 25 years to “teach” pet containment.

Radio Systems is committed to offering the most humane and effective containment systems in the industry.
said Willie Wallace.
Rich Weinssen has contributed tremendously by pioneering this positive approach.


From the World’s Largest Dog Training Facility:

This (Rich Weinssen’s gentle approach) will revolutionize pet containment training. I see a better trained, less-stressed dog.2002 : Keith Benson
Vice President, Triple Crown Academy for Dogs

From the IACP ( International Association of Canine Professionals ):

Rich Weinssen’s training approach to introducing the pet containment fence I find to be one of the most understanding and gentle ways [to boundary train]. The dog learns in small stages, his understanding is tested at each stage and the stimulation levels are such that he learns yet does not develop other unwanted behaviors.
I believe that this approach will create a better trained and more well-behaved dog with an improved relationship with its owner.”2001 : Martin Deeley
