4 sessions over 4 weeks to learn the foundations
At 45 years old and never having lived with a dog in my life, we purchased a Cane Corso puppy ‘Nero’. Nero had the potential to be 60kg fully grown so given Nero’s potential size and my total lack of experience with dogs, I was determined to make it work and have a highly trained dog. My husband Pete (who had dogs years ago) chose Colleen and the team at Manners ‘n’ More for the job.
What I didn’t realise was that it is as important to train the human, if not more important, than training Nero.
We started on our training journey at Puppy Kindy, had one-on-one sessions and graduated to the next level of training. Every week Colleen worked with us all, encouraged me and helped me to build my much needed confidence, taught us new methods, training techniques and play tactics so we could live in harmony with our new furry friend.
Thanks to all the team at Manners ‘n’ More we learned how to live life to the fullest with our canine companion in the most enjoyable, healthy and safe way and had lots of fun and laughter in the process.
Very sadly, Nero went to Rainbow Bridge at only 8 months, we were completely crushed. Colleen and team continued to provide support during our difficult times and since we have followed how Manners ‘n’ More has grown as a business due to their true dedication to dogs and their carers.
Now, 2 years on, we have our new puppy Conan and couldn’t wait to return. We wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else to help us continue to learn and for support, advice and guidance during the most important time of our new puppy’s development and of course for the years to come.
Words can’t express how you and Nero changed my life. Manners ‘n’ More – we’re coming back!
Andrea & Pete.
