When it comes to choosing a dog trainer it can be one of the most important decisions that you will make in your life and your dogs life. The training technique that a trainer uses can strongly affect your relationship with your dog for years to come. Training should always be fun for both you and your dog. EDT uses science based progressive training methods. Building a relationship via training that allows the dog to work, to think and figure things out. Evolution Dog Training strongly advocates using LIMA, which is an acronym for the phrase "least intrusive, minimally aversive."
"LIMA requires trainers/consultants to work to increase the use of positive reinforcement and eliminate the use of punishment when working with animal and human clients" ( IAABC statement on LIMA)
Not only is it the humane way to train, it also builds a stronger bond between you and your dog.
