MANNERS AND MORE
Age 5 months and older
We hear it often - "My dog isn't good enough to take ____ class." It is remarkable to see the transformation of the dogs and handlers from the beginning through the end of each class! Don't worry, or be intimidated at all! Our classes are very relaxed at every level and we are hands-on instructors. We are here to address your main issues and help achieve your goals. Our clients are pet dog owners (just like us) who enjoy their dogs. Please join us! Classes are fun and keep your dog engaged!
Would you like a well mannered dog, but just need some help?
Manners and More class contains invaluable information that addresses the challenging issues that come with sharing your home with a dog. Children and families welcome!

AKC S.T.A.R. PUPPY PROGRAM - for dogs up to age of 1 year
The American Kennel Club has created a S.T.A.R. Puppy Program designed to get owners to attend basic training classes with their puppies. It is designed as a six week class, and it is an AKC requirement that owners must attend all six weeks. If you would like to earn this certification, and your dog is age 1 year and younger, we recommend taking Manners and More Level 1 class. There will be an added fee of $30.00 for this certification.

"Thank you, your classes are fantastic!
I've taken other training class with my dogs in the past but your classes were by far the best.
Other classes were all about the basic commands. Your classes included the commands but really focused on how to make your dog a pleasant part of the family. I'll keep working with him and remember your reminders."
