Tired of Frustrating Dog Training? We Can Help!

Most dog training fails because of two things: inconsistent effort and lack of a clear plan. Just like forming a new habit yourself, your dog needs consistent practice. But without a plan, how can you be consistent? And basic obedience alone might not address the specific problems you face.

Here at EQ Dogs, we believe in sustainable behavioral change. This means creating a personalized plan with you, focusing on clear goals and milestones. We prioritize heavy reinforcement and consistent practice in various scenarios, ensuring the new behaviors truly stick.
