Manners Training

Whether you're hoping to get jumping under control or teach your dog that the counters are not a buffet, we can help you reach your goals. It's never too late to teach a dog which behaviors are appropriate (and which are not). 

The key to training good manners is to teach your dog that problem behaviors simply don't work any more. 

So how do we do it? It's simple. We break everything down, step-by-step, to break through the human-dog communication barrier. Your dog becomes super clear about the behavior that is expected and knows it will be the most rewarding. It’s the smart route to a sociable, well-mannered dog that is a pleasure for anyone to be around.

We also work diligently to stop the rehearsal of problem behaviors with management plans. We know that behaviors get stronger each time they are repeated, so we stop the ones we dislike in their tracks. And finally, we make sure that the dog's needs are met through exercise and enrichment recommendations that provide an appropriate outlet.
