Kipper is a wonderful French Brittany Spaniel with a cool story. His family consists of two parents and three adorable kids from Canada. He was born in Canada too, and then the whole family moved all the way to Poland. Kipper spent three years there and learned all about a dog’s life in Europe.
And then in 2016 the family moved to Chanhassen. Kipper instantly loved the rolling grassy yard with the occasional squirrel. But sometimes he also loved following his nose and romping around the neighborhood while his family wondered where he went.
Not long after arriving on American soil, Kipper got a DogWatch dog fence. He continued sprinting across his yard and sniffing after squirrels, but his family could trust that he was just a call away. He is one of the most obedient dogs we’ve ever worked with. Like many Brittany Spaniels, he’s a very smart guy with a little streak of independence and stubbornness. Because of that set of traits, Kipper learned the boundaries of his dog fence in just a couple days, but he needed a high correction level to keep the stubborn side at bay.
He got up to level 4 like most dogs do, and then a squirrel tempted him through the fence. So he needed to be bumped up to a level 7. That way the family would be sure he wouldn’t leave the yard, even for the most mischievous squirrel.
