Manners n More will be at the upcoming Perth Pet Expo December 5-6, 2014, come along, say hello and ask a trainer a question.


Hello and welcome to our website Manners 'n' More.

Firstly allow me to introduce myself and how Manners 'n' More came to be and what we have in store for you!

My name is Colleen and I began my journey with dogs over 10 years ago with a little rottie girl named Shae. Living in country QLD at the time in a remote area Shae became my constant companion, best friend and the most well mannered girl you could ask for.  I returned home to Perth 7 years ago but without my beloved girl, so began the search for another dog. After 6 months I found her and yes it was another rottie.

I purchased 'Chica' from a registered, ethical Perth breeder (and now great friend who I owe many thanks) and if words like, separation anxiety, chewing, barking at other dogs, jumping on people and a multitude of other things are words that you can relate to, then you know what I'm talking about. I did not know how to fix these problems and I even returned Chica to her breeder but got her back as I knew I had purchased her as a life long commitment and there simply had to be another way. And there was!

I became a nationally qualified & industry accredited dog trainer.  I mentor other students/trainers through their accreditation process and I now lecture in companion animal studies.

Manners ‘n’ More is pleased to offer ‘you’ what we and many of our clients think is a great companion dog program. Ranging from Puppy School, Manners 1-2, Private at Home Session to Post Adoptive Training.  Stay tuned to our Latest News & Events as we will shortly introduce our ‘Doggy Social Groups’ for our Puppy Training graduates.

Manners ‘n’ More also has a ‘Dogporium’  this is a small store filled with quality and essential items which all have been stringently road tested by my own dogs.

Throughout the website you will be introduced to our product research assistants who have personally tested these products for durability, taste and fun. They all have PHD’s in product testing and have often gone above and beyond the call of duty by testing poly pipe, swimming pools, buckets, crates, the washing and many forms of plant life! Their names.....Chica (6yrs), Boss (not to be confused with the Boss, me!) (4yrs) and our latest addition, Riva (12 weeks).

So welcome to Manners 'n' More.  We are sure you will find many useful things here to help assist you in having a happy companion dog in your life.

Ruffs, Colleen
