The humans behind the scenes:
"My puppy recently completed AKC Star puppy training at For Social Graces Training. The trainer Nicole was very knowledgeable, friendly, professional and you can tell she is passionate about training. The class was very interactive, fun and my pup did well. Such a rewarding experience for myself and my pup Willow. I highly recommend this class and look forward to enrolling in Good Manners next month."
We were skeptical about having a dog trainer come to our house to help with a rambunctious puppy. We thought we may be throwing money at someone who would come in and teach our dog to sit, which he already knew. WE WERE WRONG. Dead Wrong! Chelle was the most amazing trainer. The second she walked in she started training our puppy. She stayed on task and focused the entire hour. She left us tips and tricks to use to remedy our handsome handful from eating electrical cords, belts, uggs (haha). After one session with Chelle, our puppy has markedly improved. He has not chewed anything he shouldn’t, uses the restroom outside with ZERO accidents in the house, and likes to the play the games Chelle taught us to play with him for behavior modification. This was the best money I have spent in a long time and I highly recommend Chelle.
For Social Graces is fantastic! They take the very best care of our dogs and show impeccable customer service. Chelle and her staff are THE BEST of the best!!! We won’t send our dogs anywhere else!
