Looking for Positive Reinforcement Training? Do you want more education about what reinforcement is, how it works, and how powerful it is for training? Just give me an opening, and I’ll teach you everything I can! It’s my passion. 

I have spent the better part of the last 25 years learning about behavior science and why we don’t have to scare animals into doing what we want. We can literally enlist animals’ participation in the training process, and that’s what we do at The Mannerly Dog

I have learned from the best (take a look at my resume,) I am experienced in applying the principles of behavior modification in several species, and I can teach you to do it.

Do you want Animal Friendly Training? There’s really no need to hurt animals to get them to comply with our wishes, if we just rely on the science. Be careful, though – you might just get hooked on training – your pet will, for sure!
