For the family that wants to be involved in every step of their dog’s training, the Well Mannered Dog Program teaches your dog to be a more respectful member of the family.

This program is great for the family who just have a few issues they want to iron out with the family dog, and would like a few commands.

3 Private lessons in your home or at our Rudy training center.

The Courteous Canine Program

Aggression is something that can happen to even the best families. It can cause physical, emotional and financial damage to the family and those around them.

With time most dogs who struggle with this disorder can be helped. It will be a lot of work, but a normal life is possible.

Most of the work will be up to you, but we can come and help you understand what is happening and teach you the best way to address it.
