Dog Problem Consultation

It is here where you find actual help with your dog. Not merely addressing symptoms like elsewhere: from veterinarian to dog behaviorist to dog trainer... doh!

Instead here, we actually aim to solving the cause of the issue!

help-with-dogBecause only this prevents reoccurence or after-effects that are related - despite that most professionals do not see nor understand the scope of interrelations. sad

Proof we are Ahead?

Like with:

Because only this allows a genuine dog expert to efficiently and effectively help SOLVE YOUR DOG PROBLEM based on the comprehensive information you provide.


Be aware that any genuine dog expert will enquire similar detail as in our questionnaire below. The problem however is:

  • you have no access to genuine dog experts (maybe unless you click this link)
  • and already a mediocre vet or local wannabe dog trainer you have to pay a minimum of $120 for this level of detail in a consultation
  • and that although mediocre professionals cannot act on it, even if you give them a detailed questionnaire like ours below.

But please feel free to try first getting actual help elsewhere: You may even use our questions to help your chosen professional become professional - only that then you are helping him/her, instead of being helped! idea

To prevent more wild-west scraping of our intellectual property(!), getting HELP WITH DOG requires social sharing first. We appreciate your understanding.
