Welcome,
To Marvellous Manners!

Dog training with kindness.

About Us


Marvellous Manners was founded by Jilana and Cara to offer friendly, fun and professional dog training using reward based methods only and we encourage the use of a clicker.

We are accredited Kennel Club trainers and support the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme, offering assessments in Puppy, Bronze, Silver and Gold. In addition we have our own in-house assessments and awards for the fun tricks we teach.

We offer puppy classes, group training and individual training. Unlike other training classes we tailor and adapt each session according to the needs of dogs and owners.

Our beginner classes are a fun interactive way to not only teach your puppy the life skills he needs to be a good canine citizen but also a chance for you to meet new puppy owners and for your puppy to learn to socialise with other puppies and dogs.

Our improver and advanced classes build on the progress that you have already made in puppy class.

We can also offer individual training.

The Trainers

Jilana
Jilana has lived with animals all her life and has a natural love and understanding of them. During her life she has lived with dogs, horses, cats and even a chimpanzee! Jilana currently has two horses and three dogs that she adores. She breeds her family dogs and runs a successful grooming business from her home where she lives with her husband and four children. It is wonderful to be able to learn from Jilana’s extensive knowledge of dogs.

Cara
Cara has adored dogs since she was a child and couldn’t wait to be in a position to own her own dog whom she has trained to the max! Cara is a very experienced trainer who is skilled at employing different methods of training to suit each individual dog.
