Congratulations, Puppy Manners! For being voted TOP DOG Trainers by CityDog Magazine readers!
Puppy Manners group training classes are designed for people just like you! We have been raising the bar for the family dog for over a decade. You probably don't really want a show dog—but a "show off" dog would be great! We offer free-play sessions in Puppaccino and Star-Barks which helps the dogs "get their beans out" and after free-play we get to work! These are great opportunities for you to put your dog in "real-world" situations while remaining in a controlled environment, allowing you to train your dog and establish the relationship and leadership you'll need with your dog when you go out in public... Did someone mention Starbucks!?! With your well-behaved dog, you can order a latté, sit relaxed at the café table without having your dog embarrass you!

Another great week of training tips - thank you! Although I don't love "Coronatine life," the benefit of these videos is that the rest of the family can watch them and be on the same page!! Normally your training tips filter through me to the "non-trainers" like the telephone game and the rest of the family gets about 80% of your information and maybe 65% correct... This is an awesome tool and something to consider offering once all of this craziness is over. - Kristina D.
After watching, I realized I've been making the "Down" command mistake by always making my pup "Sit" first. Loved being able to replay different sections of the lesson too - super helpful for some of us first time dog owners. - Devry R.
I love being able to train with you. SO happy you offer this option! And the bonus is I can use this video to practice! There are so many tips and tricks you give in a session that I can’t remember them all. And thank you for taking our questions as we experience a challenge with our training. - Debbie G.
I could listen to dog people talk all day. Educational and funny as hell. Thank you for this, Becky. - Lauren P.

Puppy Manners training classes are much like college classes at a university. Your tuition reserves a seat for you in a specific class held on a specific set of days and at specific times. If you do not attend, no matter what the reason, you are not entitled to any refund or transfer of tuition to another class or day. We have very limited space and have a very tightly held classroom limit for students and dogs. Once a class session begins, that is, once the first class day has passed, we are unable to fairly sell your seat to someone else. No exceptions are possible. If you have questions about this policy, please contact us BEFORE you sign up to make sure you agree with and can abide by our policy. Thank you.
Here are some Very Special Pictures from one of our play times! A special THANKS to Mark Parris for his photo-journalistic contribution to our site!

Intact male dogs over the age of 9 months must have prior permission from the instructor to attend Star-Barks group training classes. A sociability evaluation may be required before class if you are unsure of your dog's social skills. If your male dog is over the age of 9 months he may have restrictions placed upon him for the social play in class. Intact dogs over age 9 months may participate in class training exercises and as long as their behavior in social play is appropriate. If your dog is excused from play, we will find something positive for you to do during the 10 minutes of free play. If you are unsure of your dog's social skills with other dogs, please email so we can set up a meet-and-greet.
We do not accept aggressive dogs into group training classes. If your dog is aggressive toward people or other dogs, our classes are not a good fit. We are happy to work with you and your dog outside of our group training classes to get you the help you need. Please contact us so we can refer you to trainers who work with dogs with aggression. We would much rather help you find the right fit for you and your dog than have you come to class only to be excused. We partner with several trainers who work with aggressive dogs in a class room setting. Please email for a referral.
Rescue dogs: If you recently adopted your dog from a rescue agency or your dog is an adopted older dog from a breeder and you are unsure if your dog is okay with other dogs in social free play, please email us and we will arrange a social meet-up to determine if your dog is appropriate for our classes.

We endorse and encourage group play but free play during class time is weather-dependent.

heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment."

don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."

"people are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. forgive them anyway.
if you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. be kind anyway.
if you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. succeed anyway.
if you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you. be honest and sinere anyway.
what you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. create anyway.
if you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. be happy anyway.
the good you do today will often be forgotten. do good anyway.
give the best you have and it will never be enough. give your best anyway.
in the final analysis, it is between you and God. it was never between you and them anyway."
- mother teresa
"we are what we repeatedly do. excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
