Problematic behaviors are best addressed in context.  Our interactive and individualized sessions begin in your home with IN-PERSON TRAINING AND/OR VIDEO CALL INSTRUCTION. After in-home goals are achieved, instruction may continue in other contexts as appropriate. For example, PHD has specially-trained TEACHER DOGS who help us instruct our skills & socialization lessons outside of the client's home. All family members who regularly interact with the dog are encouraged to be present at session. Sessions may be individual or small group and are interactive and emphasize hands-on learning for our human clients.  


PHD will help you to identify healthy alternative behaviors to replace problematic ones, and will guide your dog towards achieving this gently and effectively.


BEHAVIORS REHABILITATED INCLUDE:  separation anxiety; incessant barking, reactivity to dogs, humans or other animals;  mouthing, nipping and/or biting; jumping up or tripping people; pulling and/or lunging on the walk; inappropriate chewing or digging; resource guarding and/or other types of possessive behavior; in-fighting in the pack; inappropriate play behaviors; inattentiveness and selective obedience; fearful or aggressive behaviors; and hyperactivity. 


Your free initial consultation includes an estimate of your training program length. Contact PHD now to schedule! Your rate of progress through the curriculum depends on the age of your dog, his or her temperament and level of prior socialization, and your dedicated practice of homework.
