We've built a viewer and user-friendly Zoom-experience to conduct Tele-med style appointments for our professional behavior services. 

This private behavior consultation with Cristine Dahl uses cutting-edge proprietary tools to get a snapshot of who your dog is today, in what areas he can improve, what degree of improvement can be expected and over what time frame, to implement a better lifestyle immediately.

NOTE: This service is best for behavior assessment and modification, NOT training services (such as offered in public classes). Owners are provided post-appointment guidance for follow-up with appropriate services in their area.

 

During this ~ 2 hour session conduct an in-depth interview and assessment based on information provided during booking and in the meeting itself.

By the end of the consultation we will have identified behavior challenges, discuss strategies and prognoses, and impart real techniques you can start using immediately. A few days later, we'll provide a suggested continuation plan which you may choose to book through a recommended practitioner in your area or simply follow up on your own.

Aggression, Reactivity, Anxiety, Adult Potty Training, Multi-Dog Households

With proprietary tools created by founder, Cristine Dahl, we are able to get a snapshot of who your dog is today, in what areas he can improve, what degree of improvement can be expected and over what time frame, to implement a better lifestyle immediately.

 

This revolutionary approach, trading obedience for lifestyle and using discipline instead of punishment, better addresses today's companion dog than the one-size-fits all training plans of yesteryear.

 

No boring training recipes, no lists of skills to practice on your own. Just a real life approach designed with dogs and people in mind. From manners, leash-pulling, and house training, to aggression, reactivities, and anxiety, we remain the area's trusted choice of two decades.
