Mind Your Manners Program

Our Mind Your Manners program helps you and your dog establish basic good manners.

  • Behaviors including sit, down, stay, coming when called and learning to focus on you will be taught.
  • We’ll show you how to use these behaviors when addressing common problems including jumping up, begging at the table and counter-surfing to mention just a few.
  • Once good manners are established, positive interactions with your dog can begin!

How it works

  • All training begins with a 90-minute Initial consult, which is $165.
  • We begin by meeting you and your dog at your home, then assess and discuss your training goals that fit you and your family’s lifestyle. 
  • Some management strategies along with basic training techniques will be introduced to help you get started with changing your dog’s unwanted behaviors.
  • We then help you choose the training option best for you and your dog’s needs – one that is doable and fun!
  • If you choose to continue with training, personalized sessions will be billed at the rate of $135/one-hour session. Discounts are available for packages of four (4) or more sessions. (All sessions in a package must be used within five months of purchase.)
