Our Specialty

Family dog training

We know that taking on the mega-job of parenting kids and a dog together is NOT easy!  Families need specialized training, tailor-made just for them. And that’s EXACTLY what we offer. You’ll get all the tools and support you need to get your kids on board, your dog in check and the whole family on the same team!

“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
