HOME & Train

Train In Your Home!


In home training is primary focused on training YOU, so you can train your dog. We will provide you with the tools to teach your dog how to be more attentive, self-aware, self-restrained and to make better social choices overall.



Training Philosophy

All of our techniques are primarily Choice Based. We will show you how to let your dog choose many of their actions and then we reward them with high value motivators (food, praise, touch, toys, games and activities) for the actions you would like them to use and offer up more often! For actions that are less desirable, you will learn how to simply let them experience that they can't have what they want in that moment. All of our training is deeply effective, extremely gentle and entirely humane! We help dogs choose behavior that ‘we’ humans consider social, kind, gentle, patient and being an upstanding member of their family and society. We help you foster a cooperative relationship with your dog that is founded on love, trust, respect and scientific canine cognition.

Transformative training happens through focusing on protecting your dog’s confidence and rewarding relaxation when your dog chooses to do it!

E.Q. training is a unique and scientifically proven method to teach your dog how to choose to be calm whether you are present or not.  Your dog learns how to choose to relax and accept change on his own and especially when most dogs typically feel or act otherwise.
