About our Dog Training Service


At Perfect Manners, I do not train your dog. The training sessions will involve evaluating your dogs temperament and training you to appropriately train your dog in harmony with his/her individual training needs. I will instruct and guide you to train your dog to accept you as their leader and follow your commands.

Our services include:

General Obedience Training

Training your puppy or adult dog to dependably obey the core commands of sit, heel, stay, down, come, drop it, kennel and car-in plus good canine citizenship.

Behavior Modification

Problem solving such as chewing, aggression, jumping, excessive barking, separation anxiety, pulling on lead, marking or soiling, hyperactivity, destructive behavior, and various canine behavioral maladies.

Board and Train

A 10 day, 24/7 immersion program where your dog lives with a professional trainer for intense training to learn all core commands and overcome bad behaviors. When you pick your dog up, the trainer will teach you how to follow through with training at home.


While you are away, your dog will receive all the care, love and attention that they would receive in their own home, supervised by a professional dog trainer.

I can take a rambunctious, unruly and obstinate pet and have him/her heeling at my side and obeying simple commands in a short session. This unfortunately is a fairly useless exercise for both you and your pet.

My services to you are concerned with your interactions with your dog. Accordingly, training is conducted in the dog’s environment (your home) and is devoted to training you certain behaviors and core techniques that will allow you to teach your dog virtually any behavior. I instruct you, show you and guide you in utilizing my years of experience with canine behavior to fit your individual pet’s needs. Obedience classes will teach you techniques to force/entice your dog to do tricks. I differ, in that I will teach you how to create an environment where your dog is obedient because it meshes with your pet’s genetic instincts.

At Perfect Manners everything flows from mutual understanding and respect. There are no bad dogs. Unfortunately, there are countless problem behaviors that dogs exhibit and many frustrated dog owners. At Perfect Manners, we can help.
