training plans for dogs 5 months and over

A well-behaved, trained dog is a pleasure to own because he can go virtually anywhere without being a risk or nuisance to others. Don’t you want a dog who exhibits appropriate behavior in a crowd, good manners when you have guests in your home, is reliable around children and doesn’t threaten other dogs or people in the neighborhood?

At Manners for Mutts we use proven, positive, reward-based methods to teach your dog to be a well-mannered companion. In addition, all of our training plans can be customized to meet your individual needs. We will gladly substitute behaviors within each plan if you feel you need something different! Some of the training plans are designed so that our trainers do most of the work for you, but you are always welcome to be involved in all the lessons if you wish.
