We were having difficulties with potty training and lack of compliance with our 8 month old Plott hound mix (Bailey). After enrolling in the board and train with Kristen, we were astounded to see the behavior change upon picking up Bailey. Kristen did a wonderful job and educated us thoroughly on do’s and don’ts of dog training. We couldn’t be more pleased and still no accidents in the house! ~ Robert
Sue is your go to person when it comes to dog training. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows exactly what your dog needs to work on first. After my first in-home session with Sue, I saw immediate improvement in my dog! Not only is she great at correcting the dog’s behavior but she helps the owner understand how to communicate commands to their dog. I would use Sue and the Perfect Manners team for all my future dogs. Highly recommend!!! ~Darby
Sue was wonderful!! She was in immediate control of our 2 Weimaraner rescues. The positive reinforcement training was exactly what we were looking for. Our dogs have responded so well to the recommendations made by Sue in just a one hour session. We are so excited to continue to apply the principles and can’t wait for our next session. ~Tim
So wonderful to have a private at home training session. One session gave us the tools and confidence we needed with our new dog. I highly recommend Perfect Manners. ~Regan
Kristen is very professioal & knowlegeable, we learned so much. We got immediate results in our pup Cassius, in home training is def great for us as well. Thank you!! ~ Diana
Truly incredible. Kristen came for an in-home visit on Friday. Within a few minutes she knew exactly what my dog and I needed. It’s only been four days of practicing, but the change is night and day with my dog! He was getting really anxious about weird things and Kristen gave me all the tools I need to communicate effectively with him and help him feel secure. The training really gave me back my confidence in taking care of my dog. ~ Kelley
Kristen is the best! It hasn’t even been 24 hours since our session with Kristen and we are already seeing HUGE improvements in our dogs behavior. Our behaviors as owners has also changed tremendously for the better. Thank you so much to Kristen for providing us with the proper guidance and knowledge that we desperately needed. Thank you!!! ~ Sara F.
Though I have had only one session with Sue and Kristen, I cannot recommend their services enough! After only an hour I feel as though I have my same adorable dog, only now with perfect manners! Turns out I need to be trained as much as my dog making it an easy decision to sign up for a multi lesson package. I look forward to continuing to learn together. Thank you Sue and Kristen for your kindness and support!! ~ Natalie W.
Can’t say enough positive things about these people. A real pleasure working with them. ~ Richard K.
Sue was great to work with! I was losing confidence in my almost 1 year old Bernadoodle and she restored my faith. He was unbelievably unruly when she first arrived to my house (honestly one of the worst I’ve seen him behaved) and by the time she left he was well mannered and mentally exhausted. She taught us some fundamental tactics to work on in the coming weeks and we already notice a difference after 1 day. He can now successfully heel during walks but we will be working on this continuously til the end of time. I’m so impressed with how my dog has managed to fool me and really show me how smart he really is. We purchased the package and have 3 training sessions remaining and I’m looking forward to my new well mannered dog 😊 ~ Ashley N.
Sue was so helpful and patient with our dog! We had one training session with Sue and she was able to give my wife and I the tools to learn how to make our dog more obedient so that we could introduce him to our newborn baby. She was so nice to work with and really cared about helping our family regain control of our dog. ~ Mike
Wow! What a difference just an hour with Sue made. Sadie, our 1 year old Lab mix is a different dog while walking now. She stays with us, she doesn’t run from tree to tree. We will continue to follow Sue’s instructions but it made such a difference. ~ Banessa R.
Sue brings so much knowledge and compassion to her training sessions. We saw fast results with our dog and felt much more confident after her help. ~ Heidi H.
After a little more than an hour with Sue, me and my 3 year old Mini-Australian Shepherd were on the road to better behavior! The bad news was – the problem was me. The good news was, with Sue’s help, we could fix it! With positive reinforcement and basic commands to correct poor behavior, Toby is getting to the best version of himself! ~ Jennifer D.
Sue worked magic in just 1 hour of one on one training. She gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to help my rescue family achieve more comfort, less anxiety and needed structure in their (now our) household. Recommend 100%. Love ya babe ~ Henry the Yorkie
After our dog Rosie got back from spending a weekend at Sue’s house for training, I told her than she must have done a brain transplant on her. Rosie is a rescue, and had a vibrant personality and no discipline when we got her. After time at Sue’s, she is a wonderful, obedient companion with the same vibrant personality. ~ Michael S.
Sue has been great with working with our two Shih Tzus. She listens to all of our problems and concerns and offers her expertise and also demonstrates how the training should go. She has taught us so much on how to take control of them, and they both have become better listeners and are becoming well behaved pups. We highly recommend Perfect Manners! ~ Stephanie D., Bolingbrook
Sue has been truly amazing with both my dogs. I have learned so much from her and my dogs behave so well when I’m consistent with the direction she has given. It’s so amazing to watch her in action!! Thank you Sue!! ~ Rhonda R.
Sue does a great job explaining the how and why behind our puppy’s behavior so that we understand what helps Artemis find her right place in the family pack. She’s great at training the family while training the dog! Our first lessons have really helped our pup settle into our family. Working one on one with the trainers at Perfect Manners’s was the perfect fit for our rescue terrier. We may need some future lessons to tweak our progress but so far we have a dog who has improved dramatically on the leash and is just better behaved all around. ~ Christine & Jim Webb
One visit we learned the basics to train our very large, very playful puppy! We purchased a four session package and in the first visit, Sue taught us how to communicate with our pup. We had no clue as to what we were doing wrong but knew to seek help. This is incredible – 24 hours ago our pup was knocking us down and biting. ~ Denise M.
Perfect Manners Dog Training is the best! After having a couple of different trainers come over to train our golden retriever puppy with no results, we called Perfect Manners. Sue came in for a couple of sessions, and in just the first session, we noticed a huge, positive difference! With her calm, gentle but assertive approach, our puppy became calmer, obedient and we felt in total control! He is now a happy, well behaved dog with no issues! Perfect Manners saved the day! ~ Kanan D.
We had 4 sessions with Sue and it was a wonderful experience to learn how dog good manners training changed Heidan’s behaviors. Great lessons and the advice. Thanks Sue very much for everything! ~ Weihua S.
If you’re looking for some help in training your dog, look no further than Perfect Manners. We had the pleasure of working with Sue for the last few months with our newly acquired rescue Bandit. We have learned so much working with her regarding the proper way to mold his behavior so he becomes a great canine citizen. Of course it’s up to us to continue with what Sue has taught us, but we feel with Perfect Manners in our corner we will be successful. ~ Mike B.
Perfect Manners Dog Training is an outstanding solution if you have a new dog or even an older one in need of a “refresher.” Sue is the perfect balance of “in control” but also loving with our dog. She knows how to encourage responsiveness and has taught us so much about “dog language!” ~ Laura H.
After just 1 session with Sue my pup is calmer and better behaved. He follows my lead, listens to “no” and works for the praise. More work to do but pleased with the quick response to the training. ~ Anita H.
