The Best Murrieta Dog Training
Discover How Our Dog Training Program Works

The behavior of a dog varies due to many factors, including breed, social skills, behavior, fears, temperament, etc. and this means that a “one-size-fits-all” approach does not work for every dog.

Therefore, at IQ K9 Training, we devise personalized training programs for every dog tailored to suit their individual needs and requirements. Moreover, before we initiate our training, we set up an ice-breaking session where our experts assess the behavior of the dog and discuss with the owners how they want their dog to behave.

Here is how it works:

Step 1: Preliminary Evaluation/Consultation
We start our training with a free consultation session to address your dogs’ needs and develop the best training courses for them. It takes approximately an hour and can be completed remotely, on-call.

Step 2: Finalizing the Dog Training Program
Our experts will share all the suitable training programs with you so you can choose one that fits your requirements. Once you choose the program, you have to fill an enrollment form to sign up and pay a deposit fee (the remaining balance is due at the start of the training).

Step 3: Initialization of Training at Your Desired Date
Our experts will start training your dog according to the chosen plan. If you choose our Board and Train program, we will keep your dog at our home until they are fully trained.

Once your dog is trained, we’ll move on to training you so that your dog understands and responds to you better than he does to us. This will take 2 to 5 sessions. After this, you will have a cheerful dog who will focus even around distractions.

We Don’t Just Train Dogs – We Build Relationships

At IQ K9 Training, we utilize a balanced training approach. Our trainers specialize in marker training (classical conditioning using verbal markers). This helps us figure out what really motivates your dog and assists us in effectively communicating with them.

Our training style is successful because we not only give you the control needed to swiftly navigate various aspects of the human environment with your canine companion, but we also offer the training needed to successfully have your dog wanting to perform the commands so you can enjoy the company of your dog in-home and outdoors without any fear.

Whether you have just started building a relationship with your pup, are getting to know your new rescue dog, or are at your wit’s end and don’t know what to do to correct your pooch’s behavior, IQ K9 Training is here to assist you. We will train your canine companion in such a way that not only will you and your family love to spend time with them, but your guests and friends will also give you props after seeing your dog’s progress.

Once your dog masters our dog training system, we’ll move on to your training so that you can easily interact with your dog.

What Our Clients Are Saying…

Let these Amazing Dog Training Success Stories Inspire You


“We couldn’t be more happy with the wonderful experience we had with Lianne and Bret!!!! We adopted a very high energy large puppy and started to think we had taken… read more on way too much dog but we felt that he was family already and we had to get him trained ASAP. We met with a few trainers but we liked them the best. I was very hesitant about utilizing a training collar like they recommended but Lianne assured me there’s a right way to use it that can be very beneficial to training maverick faster. They do in home training which was amazing!!! I highly recommend it . They gave us so many training tools to work on that truly helped maverick become such a more controllable dog. He’s still hyper but we know the best ways to really motivate and work with his high energy now. And I loved that they truly looked at his personality and customized his training to fit with it. I highly recommend them as trainers and was so impressed with their knowledge and professionalism.”



“We rescued a Doberman and he is 1 yrs old and a hand full to walk. So we decided to get some training for him and us. We looked at… read more other places and we liked what Brett had to say. So we took a chance and it was the right fit. Our Doberman is fun to walk with now and he listens to the commands that we learned. So if you are looking for a place for dog training IQK9 is the place to be. Thanks again Brett and your staff.”
