helping dogs become their best selves!

Behavior Consultations

Dogs are awesome, but some struggle and make poor decisions. At pranaDOGS, we set them up with proper coping techniques, and then practice until they realize they’re available in every situation. 

Have a dog struggling to make good decisions?  We provide a limited number of 90-min, in-person* assessments. Sessions unpack the dogs issues, personality type and needs and how to interlace those within the household successfully.

*Assessments also available virtually
