The Dream

You dreamed of getting a dog.  You wanted a companion that would complement your active and fulfilling life. 
• A sociable dog, calm enough to not call attention to its self.
• A dog so well-behaved its a pleasure at home
• A welcome visitor
• Fun to take on walks, hikes and all sorts of outings.

And we can help you have that

As you learn to:
• set benevolent limits
• develop new communication skills
• and learn how to guide your dog into making “good decisions”

Your dog will be learning
• Impulse control
• How to focus and respond to your cues
• Happy emotional associations

And to live happily in human society

We offer Certified Dog Trainers who love working with dogs and people equally. Our training is fun, compassionate and effective. Both you and your dog are in good hands at The Well-Mannered Dog.

We offer dog training for dogs of all ages, adult dogs, puppies, adolescent dogs and seniors. We work with all sizes and breeds of dogs. We even work with dogs that don’t get along with people or 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 Coburg.
