1. This isn't obedience, this is behavior modification. It's not so much that you are teaching the dog to be more obedient, you are changing their emotional response to a given situation. It's really helpful to have a pro around for this because it's more complicated and subtle than simple commands.

3. Canine PhD looks the best to me. They have lots of experience in a variety of areas (including competition) and they use positive methods. Of all of them I would steer clear of bark busters. They are a franchise that relies heavily on aversives like e-collars and shaker cans.
