PHD teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced canine socialization and obedience. We will  teach your dog  agreeability, level of excitement control, and focus between  cues. We also teach canine behavioral rehabilitation


1. The dog will not urinate or defecate in inappropriate places.  

2. The dog will walk at heel without pulling and distraction. 

3. The dog will not show reactive behaviors towards other dogs or people

4. The dog will not jump up on people. 

5. The dog can play fun games like fetch, hide and seek, and find the treat.  

6. The dog will respond reliably to basic obedience cues like sit, down, stay, and come. 


Tell PHD your goals and we will develop an individualized training plan for you!


Does your dog have troublesome or out-of-control behaviors like tearing up furniture or bedding, growling, lunging or snapping? Does he or she suffer from separation anxiety? Do the multiple dogs in your house seem stressed by each other? Has in-fighting developed in your pack? If so, in-home instruction on behavioral rehabilitation could help you greatly. We offer interactive video call and in-person training options. Click here for more information.
