what our clients have to say!
Bill & I want to thank you again for your help with our little Sophie. We just recently passed her nine month anniversary with us, and she is a wonderful dog! We haven’t had any accidents in the house in months; she has come to love and trust us and we her; and she’s HAPPY — she walks around smiling all the time!
All thanks to your guidance and intervention. As we continue to tell people, Staci saved our relationship with this dog.”Kathryn T.
Thank you for the e-mail and the great lesson. I have taken Wendy on several walks since then and the difference in both of us is amazing! I have my pocket packed with treats and mostly practice with the turn around. She loves her treats and is happy to go the other way to get them.
The best part is that I am enjoying our walks together and I think she is too. I no longer am afraid when a possible situation comes our way as you have shown me the tools to use to get out of it relatively stress free.
Thank you for showing me that I can enjoy my new addition and that positive reinforcement works much better than punitive actions.”Yvonne D.
I just had to share a major victory with Jameson! I’ve been practicing the “wait” command at the front door. I had him “WAIT” at the open door and then turned my back to him and went around the side of the house to get groceries out of the garage – I was out of eye site!!! He not only waited for me at the door but he did not jump out when he saw me come around the front walk!! He waited at the door, did not cross the threshold!!!
This has been a wonderful set of classes for him – Thank you so much!!”Julie E.
“Thank you SO much, Staci:
All three dogs are doing so well, and your training has helped immensely already. We’re finding that Percy is a very quick learner – took him one night sleeping on his own in the guest room to get the hang of not barking to wake us up! He’s now back in the kitchen sleeping with Rose & Susan and doing a great job. Still using the time-outs when needed when he whines during the day – but, it’s becoming less frequent. Overall, our house is a MUCH more peaceful place and the dogs seem happier than ever – can’t thank you enough! We’re so happy to be working with you.”Anne W.
Thank you very much for your information and training tips. I don’t know if I should say that Pikachu is a quick learner or you are a great trainer, or both. I think Pikachu already gets it. I am very happy with the results. And I will definitely refer you to my friends. Thank you again for your time.”Tina H.
“Couldn’t be happier with our results! Excellent training techniques and support”.C. Hesla
“Staci was so great to work with — we literally saw our pup adapting his behavior after her very first training session. She is so knowledgeable, calm and great at getting the whole family involved in training exercises. Definitely recommend Manners for Mutts”!J. Lloyd
“Staci was so much help to me and my family when we brought home our dog, Owden. I had a million questions and Staci patiently answered them all while working with us to better understand what our dog needs and how we can facilitate boundaries and fun with our pup. It was money well spent.
Staci worked with our schedule and young children. Training was fun and something I looked forward to. Owden loved her too! If your dog (or you) is in need of some training, call Manners for Mutts. I’m so glad we did”.A. Johnson
“Staci was GREAT! We got a new puppy that we had some concerns about. After working with Staci, my husband and I have been working with Lambeau and what a difference. She knows her dogs and I would highly recommend her.”M. Stroble
“Staci is honestly the dog whisperer!!! She answers all your questions and has such great techniques tried and true!! Highly recommend her!!! We will be continuing with group training!!!”L. Buckingham
“If you’re looking for a trainer, then I highly recommend Staci! She’s an amazing trainer that is friendly and very knowledgeable about dogs. Iris, my Siberian Husky pup really got great training from her as did my family and I. She was able to answer all our questions and gave us valuable pointers on how to properly train Iris.”M. Nava
“Staci always does a great job. Although, my Jack Russell will always be a work in progress due to his high energy he really benefited by “Manners for Mutts” gentle dog training teaching style. I highly recommend this company for any of your pet training needs.”S. Russell
“We really enjoyed working with Staci, she’s very knowledgeable about dogs and gave us great tips. Our golden retriever puppy loved her. Her training advice was very helpful, we learned a lot from her. We plan on continuing to use her services for group classes. We would highly recommend her.”W. Bokota
“Staci is amazing- she trained us so we can help train Nikki- our wonderful 18 months old Lagotto. Everything she explains and shows makes total sense and answers so many of our questions. Nikki is really smart and too cute for words so she has gotten away with lots of tricks since she is so cute. Staci worked with us to achieve positive behavior that makes us all happier. We also have a 15 year old pbgv who benefited as well.”
“Love Staci and her awesome training!! We hired her when Bella was just 3-4 months…it has made a world of difference when we see how other same-age pups behave. Our first overnight babysitter said she is the best trained puppy she ever took in! Now signing up for group classes to continue training. Thanks Staci!”
“Staci is a wonderful dog trainer and behaviorist. She really understands what makes dogs tick, including puppies, including our wild and crazy young Terrier. We have benefited both from her classes and from her individual training sessions, and will be calling on her again when our guy is a little more mature.”
“I highly recommend Staci. She helped us with an English Bulldog and a mixed breed rescue. She’s so informative and helpful and worked with our whole family. She was especially patient showing our young boys how to work with the dogs. I think she could help even experienced dog owners with training and suggestions. She’s the best!”
“Maggie and I could not have survived our first few months without Staci. Maggie was a 5-month-old, 40lbs (now 70 lbs) pitbull mix from a shelter. Maggie was horrible with other dogs, but Staci was very patient with us and did a great job managing Maggie during group classes. And Maggie clearly loved Staci. With Staci’s guidance and a lot of daily hard work by Maggie, she is now an easy-going, responsive dog who gets complimented regularly on her manners.”
“Staci took a family of four frazzled, tired, outwitted people and helped us become the masters of our house again! We’ve never had a puppy before, and it’s a lot of work, but Staci helped us understand the need for consistency, lots of praise, and training early. She also taught us how important it is for Luna to have boundaries, so she understands that we are in charge. Basically, Staci is an excellent people trainer and the puppy was just a means to an end!”
“We have enjoyed working with Staci ever since our puppy was 11 weeks old. As a new dog and puppy owner, I felt overwhelmed and inadequate on what to do. So glad we found Staci. She was flexible with our schedule, would get back to me back right away, patient and really helped me and my kids train and enjoy the new addition to the family. We have done private lessons, puppy class and now in the next class with Staci, and so glad we invested in all of them. Our puppy learned the basic commands early on, loves going to class, and really is the dog we always wanted. Thank you, Staci!”
