Earn the AKC Home Manners title

The new AKC Home Manners test assesses ten skills that well-mannered dogs need in the home setting. The skills relate to the dog owner having control over the dog, being able to walk the dog, and developing a bond with the dog during playtime.

* Great first step in training your older puppy or adult dog
* Demonstrate that your dog has the foundation he needs to move on to higher levels of training
* Easy to do from home - just send us your video to pass the test
* Fun to do -- and your dog will be better behaved and easier to manage.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest score, I give Marti a 10 on every aspect of her professional services. Marti worked with me to achieve my dog's AKC Canine Good Citizen certification and service dog skills training.  Marti is the ultimate professional and working with her was a pleasure for both my dog and me. She makes training fun! The results are amazing.
