We pride ourselves on offering trustworthy, high quality, convenient, & reasonably priced services.
We do not subscribe to any single method of training. We take the time to find out the details of your dogs individual temperament and character and what you the handler are comfortable with. Once we have taken these factors under consideration we create a training program suitable for both you and your dog. The best tools any trainer can offer are experience, a working knowledge of the fundamentals, and an open mind.
Marie, our Certified Behavior and Training Specialist, can offer Basic, Intermediate, & Advanced Obedience; On and Off Leash Obedience, Trick Training, Scent Detection, Home Manners, AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and S.T.A.R. Puppy training, and preparation for your TDI or Delta Society therapy dog testing.
Do you feel that your dog may be in need of behavior modification rather than regular obedience training? If your dog is behaving in an unmanageable fashion we can construct a modification plan involving creative solutions to suit your dog and your lifestyle. We will help you through all stages of the plans execution ending with a more enjoyable and harmonious relationship with your dog.
If you are interesting in adding to your family we are trained in breed & adoption consultations as well. We will look at your lifestyle, home environment, family dynamics, and breed interests and assist you in choosing a future pack member that will fit right in. Whether you are looking for a specific breed or to adopt from a shelter we will walk you through the process so that you are not caught off guard once your newest family member is home with you. Dogs are breed for specific purposes and even a mixed breed dog from a shelter can have certain drives that future homes should be aware of so they don't end up in shelters for the first time or ever again.
Marie has given Canine Safety group
talks to kids groups, local pet sitters, dog rescues/shelters, and dog walkers
on equipment, canine body language, and keeping safe. If you are
interested in having her prepare a informative safety talk for a group
of people you feel may benefit from it please don't hesitate to contact
Manners Mastered K9 Academy
works to keep dogs out of shelters and in homes that love, care for,
and understand their dogs. We do it for the love of the dog. We
recognize and respect that your relationship with your dog is a personal
one and we do not aim to alter that bond in any way.
** The initial training session may last more than one hour but each session after is
one hour in length. Generally 1-3 sessions are all that is needed for behavior modifications. All sessions are at the clients home or a nearby
park depending on the clients needs. All sessions are tailored to each
individual dog and their human family! Our hourly rate for your
personalized training is kept low to ensure anyone can afford us - our goal is to keep as many loved dogs out of shelters as possible.
