family dog trainingOur Motto – Train, Play, Love, Smile

Train – Positive, reward based methods to create mutual trust, respect and interspecies communication
Play – engaging in mutually enjoyable activities

Smile – the pleasure brought to each others hearts due to the deeper understanding & friendship established with training.

Dog training is a partnership between the dog, pet parent and your training instructor.  The Well-Mannered Dog values our human clients equally much as the dogs.  Just look at all the free information we have on our website.  Future, current and past clients are encouraged to contact us with questions or to just keep in touch and we support owner education with handouts and other media.

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.

The Proof is in the results, We deliver results
