2.  The PetEthogram is analyzed by a Veterinary Behavior Consultant who calls to discuss the Analysis with the pet parent by phone appointment.


3. The Pet Parent learns the pet's motivations for the undesirable behaviors, how easy or difficult it will be to improve the pet's behavior, how much time it will take for the pet to reach the person's goals, any recommended services from the pet's veterinarian to correct or rule out any medical causes behind the pet's behavior, any recommended services from a CPDT trainer or from gentle method puppy kindergarten, dog obedience class, or private training, a fee estimate for recommended services, an overview of a customized pet behavior training program.
