There are numerous behaviors that can be considered "bad manners". All are easily corrected with the proper behavior modification and tools. We can help!

Dogs can present us with all types of unwanted behaviors. While these things are stressful to us as humans, it's important to understand that your dog is behaving in a way that makes sense to him. Dogs don't make trouble just to get you angry. The key here is understanding what is driving the unwanted behavior and how that behavior is being reinforced by your dog's environment.
Begging, Jumping, Counter-Surfing, Rude Manners, Barking, Mouthing, Chasing, Marking, Humping, Off-Leash Control, etc.
House Breaking, In-Home Destruction, Stealing (trash, socks etc) Digging, Chewing, etc.
