Our Star-Barks 101 [Beyond Puppyhood] group training class students work hard to achieve a level of communication and trust that warrants a field trip to Starbucks Group Classes in Redmond Town Center Mall after graduation.
On these pages you will see some pictures taken during these outings where we mind our mocha manners at our local Starbucks. These good dog owners and their great dogs have reached that wonderful stage where dogs and owners are working together as a team.
Notice the peace and ease displayed and shared by owners and dogs alike! It's the reason for Puppy Manners!
This fantastic tradition is supported by our great friends at Invisible Fence Northwest, Inc. who generously pay for coffee and refreshments for all of our attendees! Thank you very much, Invisible Fence Northwest!
We have been asked by Starbucks, the coffee company, to put a disclaimer on our web site making clear that we, Puppy Manners, are not in competition with Starbucks, the coffee company, nor are we, Puppy Manners, and Starbucks, the coffee company, in business together. We, Puppy Manners, do not wish to confuse anyone.
To be clear, we, Puppy Manners, support Starbucks, the coffee company, as consumers of their coffee products; we love to go to Starbucks, the coffee company, with our furry companions and enjoy good coffee. Our goal is and has always been to encourage our clients to take their dogs out to public places and what better place than Starbucks, the coffee company, to take your dog and get a hot cup of delicious coffee? We love Starbucks, the coffee company, not only for the great drinks they serve but also for being a very community-involved company. We all want to help our community in many ways and we appreciate Starbucks, the coffee company, for all they do. We are Seattle-ites and, being true to that label, we encourage all of you to take field trips with your dog to your local Starbucks coffee house and enjoy!

Of course, Becky has to give her students some special attention.
Puppies, puppies, puppies!

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
