I'm not a fan of IF but for discussion sake.....does anyone know what training credentials these people need to have, if any, to work for this company? I naturally assumed they need to have enough training to know the mechanics of IF and how to get a dog acclimated to IF, nothing else.

I'm just wondering why an IF representative just this week alpha rolled a 5 month old Newfie pup as part of his set up protocol. To say I am livid would be an understatement but I am doing my research now so when I call the corporate office I am well prepared.

It looks like all you need is the cash to buy in.


Here is their training:

Where are they located? Perhaps they'd like to come and introduce Riggs and Connor to the system the same way?

Well I just got off the phone with the sputtering office manager. Low and behold, they have behavioral training as well, did ya know? The owner is calling me back at some point.

I thought of Riggs or Mama or Connor or a myriad of other dogs they wouldn't want to alpha roll. But seriously, Newfies aren't small dogs, do these people really want to end up raising a fearful newfie with little kids running around as a result of this douchebag?

Ugh.

Yea, let's bring Riggs down to the office.
