About our dog trainers

Sandy Finley Senior Dog Trainer & Owner Perfect Manners Dog Training
Sandy Finley specializing in canine aggression, phobic behavior, separation anxiety, behavior modification, therapy dog training, advanced obedience training and puppy training. 34 years experience. I’ve trained dogs for the military, for guarding, for therapy work, am a published author and lecturer on canine behavior, blah, blah, blah. I’ve pretty much done it all when it comes to
working with dogs.

But now I’m having real fun.

Now I train dogs specifically to be good family dogs. I solve dog behavior problems, make families happy dog owners and generally go home every day with a smile on my face knowing that I’ve made dog
and human(s) happier.
