Polite Manners and More

Fun and focused training for you and your dog!

With many of us now working from home, we are now seeing those lovely behaviors we don’t want to see from our dog. Does your dog jump on you, bark, and beg? This is the course for you! We will work on basic obedience and problem behaviors so you can have the perfect 4-legged co-worker at home!
