“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

I Hate Wee-Wee Pads!

I’m just going to come right out and say it, I hate wee-wee pads! As a dog trainer I’ve seen so many potty-training programs derailed by the use of wee-wee pads. In some cases, people just don’t know any better. But other people are looking for a short cut. There is...
