“We enrolled our Cavooodle with Colleen and the Manners n More team during the covid-19 pandemic, knowing that Colleen had thought outside the box and was offering a very different delivery from the traditional puppy classes. It has been absolutely brilliant!
Our Annie has received the very best help possible relating to her nervousness around other dogs, and received astonishingly effective and caring training from Colleen and the MnM team. Annie loves her classes and her trainers, and in turn, we have loved seeing her develop and grow as a puppy. The weekly Zoom classes and the training videos on the FB page are incredibly useful, and I can’t understate the feeling of confidence and security you have as a puppy owner knowing that you can ask Colleen for help at any time – and can even video your own training exercises at home so Colleen can provide feedback!
I am so thankful we heard about Colleen and Manners n More. We will never use anyone else to work with our dog; we trust her and her team implicitly. If you want to send your puppy to a puppy school of the highest calibre, look no further.”

“We attended two Puppy Primo classes with our puppy at Manners N’ More just before the Covid restrictions were enforced. Colleen was very quick to develop a new program and a new approach to continue our classes where our puppies would not miss out on their critical socialising period.
Colleen’s approach was to continue training puppies without the presence of their owners, whilst conducting weekly online classes for owners on Zoom. We can highly recommend the new approach because our puppy was given one on one training and we were able to watch recordings of these sessions online and discuss our concerns and achievements with Colleen through online platforms.
We love the fact that we can post videos of any behavioural or training problems that we face with our puppies for Colleen to watch and guide us on the right path. The weekly Zoom training sessions have been brilliant as everyone learns from each other’s experiences.
Colleen is a great educator and we can highly recommend her new approach to puppy training!”

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!
