“We just got Cooper, a newborn on the way, and a 3-year-old running around. We needed some help. Staci was professional, great with Cooper and super patient with our 3-year-old. She worked around our busy schedule and we never felt rushed when she was training. Even after the training was done, Staci contacted us to follow up. My family and I would recommend Manners For Mutts to everyone we know. Thanks Staci“
