Eschbach Performance K9, LLC, is a small Family Owned home-based collective that provides an array of advanced Dog Training & Behavior Modification
Services using science-based methods and practices formed from the latest in peer-reviewed research, modern canine related studies, and
other areas such as
EPK LEARNING BASICS
Canine Cognition - the study of a dog's mind, brain, and thinking power, how the dog reacts
to and how the dog's mind processes the world around it. Mainly the study of the mental process(es) in dogs of
acquiring, storing in memory, retrieving, combining, comparing and using in new situations,
information and conceptual skills.
Classical conditioning - a learning process that occurs when two stimuli are repeatedly paired;
a response that is at first elicited by the second stimulus is eventually elicited by the first stimulus alone.
Operant Conditioning - B. F. Skinner theory (one of the most influential American psychologists of all time).
As a behaviorist, he developed the theory of "Operant Conditioning", the idea that behavior is determined by that
behavior's repeated/or most likely outcomes, whether they are reinforcements or punishments, which determine whether that behavior
will be more likely or less likely to occur again.
POOR Experiences & Outcomes = the behavior will likely DECREASE.
GOOD Experiences & Outcomes = the behavior will likely INCREASE.
"Classical Conditioning", and
"Operant Conditioning" along with other affiliated clinical and observational data, trials, and studies carried out by many of the world's most renowned
canine behaviorists, scientists, and psychologists around the world.
Each individual canine's genetic makeup and environmental experiences result in unique behavioral
blends of intelligence levels, temperaments, drive thresholds, and other behavioral traits that
are all unique per each specific dog. EPK takes advantage of this by custom tailoring
every Dog Training regimen around the unique blend of behavioral traits, strengths, and weaknesses
of each specific dog. This not only allows for unrivaled results by tapping into the
dog's greatest potential, but it does so without sacrificing the dog's confidence, drives, or
emotional stability like many "one size fits all" approaches and methods
from decades past. To learn more in-depth about EPK training philosophies, techniques, and methods
Teach your dog to search and locate Drugs, Bedbugs, Explosives, Antler Sheds, and more! The possiblities are
virtually endless when it...
TIGHT BUDGET? NO PROBLEM!
If you're in need of a Dog Trainer, and have budget concerns, do not hesitate to contact
us at anytime and fill us in on your situation. EPK works with clients to create a
comfortable plan to help them obtain the results they desire, without going into serious
debt or breaking the bank to achieve them.
Here at EPK we understand that money doesn't grow on trees and that often times the
expense or need for Dog Training wasn't planned on nor budgeted for, until unforeseen
issues started manifesting suddenly. This is why we offer flexible payment options as
our way of trying to make advanced training services affordable for as many individuals
and families as possible, that would otherwise be turned away or not even consider getting
the help that they truly need. Bottom line - this not only reduces hassle and makes life
easier for dog owners, but it ultimately saves dogs from ending up in shelters, pounds,
and rescues by offering an option that very few do.

All of our Dog Training financing is done in-house as a matter of convenience for
our clients. No bank account information needed, nor do we require credit checks. Simply decide what is affordable
for you, setup a desired pay schedule, and that is it!
FLAT RATES: 0% INTEREST!
No extra cost, No service fees, & No Interest. Whatever the cost of your selected service is,
that's the total amount you end up paying and not a penny more!
FLEXIBILITY: DESIGN YOUR OWN PLAN!

lifestyle and needs. You can choose to pay Weekly, Bi-Weekly, or Monthly.
EPK turned our agressive dog around in THREE weeks! Even after the 4 other
trainers gave up and told us 'there was just no hope for him'. EPK did an
amazing job and kept us from having to put him down. Thank you so much!
