Our training method

the family language

The Family Language is a method of behavioral understanding and hands on execution developed by Matt Bryant and his team over the past 20 years. The method is built on science and relies on family instincts as a form of positive reinforcement. This reliance on instincts results in a highly rewarding, effective, and consistent approach optimal for wide scale application such as that needed by Best Friends. Over the past decade Matt Bryant and his team have utilized the Family Language to help thousands of dogs across the country, by working with both individuals and organizations to better understand and manage the human-dog relationship. That work has included supporting more basic behavioral situations such as obedience, anxiety, leash reactivity, and pair-bonding, as well as addressing more advanced challenges such as aggression and trauma.
