I’m Nancy Johansen, owner of Mind Your Manners Dog Training.
I’ve been providing dog and puppy obedience training for over 15 years and have helped many dog owners like yourself take the relationship from, “I usually like my dog” to “I love having a dog”.
We sometimes forget that our dogs are the only species on the planet selectively bred to want to be with us and we should be tapping into that if we want to motivate them. Equally important is tapping into how our dogs see the world and how they make connections between who should be the teacher and who should be the student. No matter how much your dog loves you, when they’ve grown used to thinking you’re more of a room mate then someone they’re supposed to listen to when they hear dog obedience training words like “Come”, “Heel” and “Stay”, the relationship is out of balance. You can’t build a great partnership with your dog without paying attention to the relationship.
I’ll show you how to start building a relationship with your dog using respect ~ not food and not fear.
My Message To You...
The best results in puppy and dog obedience training are based on respect, love, structure and reasonable discipline. Really, no different then raising a child.
I train one-on-one. I come to your home or you come to me but either way you don’t have to sit in a room full of dogs that often don’t have the same obedience training issues. If you want a dog that will come when called regardless of distractions ~ a dog that you actually enjoy taking for a walk …a dog that behaves at the front door, then contact me for more information.
"Nancy has trained two of my dogs and her training techniques opened a whole new world to us and allowed our bonds to become even deeper. She has a heart not just for the dogs themselves, but for the relationships forged between dogs and their owners." ~ Melony
"Tanner was always a happy, friendly dog but now, thanks to Nancy, not only is he happy and friendly but polite and respectful as well" ~ Barb
