You’re Welcome to visit a class before you enroll
At The Well-Mannered Dog, we understand blindly enrolling in a class, trusting that the class will be a good match for you is asking a lot and we do not expect that of you. Feel free to visit an existing class in session (without your dog) to check for compatibility, effectiveness and to be sure you will be getting value for your hard earned money.

Life Skills



Our Life Skills Class will make you enjoy your dog more.

This is why.   Our Life Skills class places a major emphasis on teaching impulse control games (the dog controls its self instead of you controlling the dog).  All basic training needs to focus on this concept because the changes you want to take place involve the dog learning to control its self as opposed to you having to control it every minute of the day.  In addition this class covers: 

• Polite greetings
• Managing misbehavior
• Solving playful biting and destruction issues
• Wait – Level 1
• Mat and station training – Level 1
• Targeting – Level 1
• Sit – Level 1
• Down – Level 1
• Pay attention- Level 1

The End Result
Impulse control is a choice but it has to be taught. These fundamental skills are different than what most people are used to teaching but are so important for your dog’s education.  It goes beyond luring behaviors.  It teaches self-control as well as other behaviors.  Every game we’ll play is a win-win game. You win and the dog wins.

What if you Don’t teach Impulse Control?
Then you will continue to have a dog that jumps on people, playfully bites, destroys things, pulls on leash and does not come when called.

Training that results in humans that are happy with their dog and Dogs that are happy with their humans.  Call 541-603-6868 if your have questions or click the registration button to start dog training.
