The Well-Mannered Dog training really helps

Happy Joyous Wags to you!

I'm Debbie Schaefer owner of The Well-Mannered Dog.

Nothing warms the heart more than the genuine warmth, affection and love humans enjoy with their dogs.

This relationship is so very special.

The Well-Mannered Dog enhances that relationship even more by teaching you how to gain control, set benevolent limits, clearly communicate with your dog & understand your dog's perspective.

Its not just about the dogs.  We are here for YOU! To support YOU & guide YOU along your training path.

You'll be amazed as your dog learns self-control, to be relaxed in social situations, to understand what you want, to follow your commands & blossoms allowing you to live together peacefully.

We offer Humane, Fear Free, Positive Training.

We offer dog training for dogs of all ages, adult dogs, puppies, adolescent dogs and seniors and we work with all sizes and breeds of dogs.

Our classes are located in Eugene Oregon but because many people throughout Lane County value our services, we have many clients who live east of Springfield Oregon, south of Cottage Grove, west of Veneta and North of Coberg.
