Mutts and Manners Dog Training

Lawrence, KS

I’ve been working with and training my own personal dogs for several years, actually since 1976, when I got my first rescue dog – Tank, a Lab and Brittany mix.

I worked for almost 34 years in the kitchen cabinet industry. Owned and operated my own cabinet shop and showroom for almost 18 years, and have worked in various capacities in cabinetry design and sales since closing my business in 1991. The passion for working with dogs has always been with me, and finally took over in September of 2009!

In 2007, I was looking for help, due to the time restraints of my job, in training a dog we had adopted. She was 10 months old at the time, and very responsive to training, but I didn’t feel that I had the time to devote to the task. We started working with Sit Means Sit Dog Training, and I became totally hooked on the training methods using the low-level remote collar. I ended up working for Sit Means Sit, as a trainer, for 3 ½ years starting on a part-time basis, and then full-time in 2009.

Mutts and Manners Dog Training was officially started in September of 2010. I specialize in low-level remote collar training, and a balanced obedience training program. Along with the modern remote collar, I also use food, toys, tugs, balls, prong collars, slip leads, long lines and standard leashes. Depends on the situation and the dog’s personality. I let the dog tell me what works! Mutts and Manners has given me the opportunity to utilize a mix of several methods geared toward successful obedience training for dogs, and handler instruction for owners.
