Muttz with Mannerz Education

Education

We believe a well-educated owner ensures the well-being, health, and happiness of their dog.

Knowing it all isn’t easy so our team provides a wide resource of educational information through podcasts, articles and hands on-workshops. We love passing on knowledge and help you and your pup to enjoy the learning process.

Check out our great podcast guests and informative articles. There is a list of helpful resources too!

Daycare

Our daycare provides fun in a safe, clean, supervised environment where they can do it all-socialize, exercise (brain and body), learn AND make new friends.

Your dog’s stay includes play, relaxation, and outdoor walks so there is a healthy balance and they go home feeling tired and fulfilled. Who doesn’t love a tired puppy at the end of your busy day?

Our dedicated team encourages good manners while giving lots of love and attention.

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” — Roger Caras

Our Academy is designed to provide top-notch professional training services that cater to every stage of your dog’s life. Whether you are looking for obedience training, sports training, or specialized training for therapy dogs or help curb bad behaviour like pulling on leash or jumping, our expert trainers are here to help. Our trainers provide personalized attention to help build skills and confidence for every unique owner and dog.

The Muttz with Mannerz™ team shares a lifelong passion for pups and their people. With over 50 years of combined dog experience, we have a wide breadth of talent, expertise, skills, and knowledge within our team. We are so proud of our team knowing their goal is to enrich lives at both ends of the leash.

You can be confident that you and your pups are met with care and kindness for all our services in training, education, daycare and grooming. We confidently transfer our expertise to you so that you can feel confident in the development and care of your dog.

Our canine academy (dog training school) is the foundation of Muttz with Mannerz™, and since 2006 has grown to offer unique programs, seminars, and socialization classes in our safe, clean 3000 square foot space. Our current training programs range from puppy manners to specialty classes for dogs of all ages and stages.

Our Canine Academy is where owners strengthen their bond with their dog and engage in fun activities and skills be it sports or obedience training.

We know life gets busy with work or errands and leaving your high energy pup or dog at home may be difficult – our dog daycare can help! Dog daycare is available for both half or full days, where our daycare specialist fills your dog’s day with learning, play, enrichment, and chill time with their furry friends.

Socialization and training are the core of a well-mannered pup and our daycare services are a great option that offers play or enrichment activities.

We recognize the powerful impact that dogs have on people of all ages. Our Kids & K9’s unique programs help build knowledge, skills, and confidence for both child and dog.

Many of our team are the proud owners of therapy dogs. We also identify and provide programs to develop future therapy dogs as we see the rewards these dogs bring to those they touch. We love developing leaders on a leash.

We are actively involved in the community, and happily give back by providing support to local rescues and organizations that support the growing needs of the pets

Our Award-winning Premier Canine Training Academy is proud to serve the York Region (Stouffville, Uxbridge, Markham, Aurora, Newmarket, Georgina, and East Gwillimbury.).

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…

“Our 2 1/2 year old cockapoo, Kelsey, has been attending classes and small dog play dates at Muttz with Mannerz since she was 10 weeks old.  Corey has a very energetic and enthusiastic approach and it is clear how much she LOVES dogs! She provides encouragement through positive reinforcement and most importantly keeps it FUN.  Although Kelsey is a bit timid by nature, she can’t wait to get to her play dates every week.
Thanks, Corey……highly recommend!!”
Debbie G
“We have worked with Corey and the team at Muttz with Mannerz over the years with a couple of our dogs and they have consistently demonstrated their wealth of knowledge (and patience) when it comes to training.  Our current dog is a rescue and needed a lot of work – through the private training and now the “fun with agility class”, we’re well on our way to have a great family pet. Our kids love to get involved with the training too and it’s a great opportunity for them to learn how to care for a pet, while having some fun along the way!
Our family would highly recommend Muttz with Mannerz.” Kelly Bell
“Corey is a well-known and skilled dog trainer who has a passion for dogs.  We have participated in puppy, obedience and agility training classes for Bella from five months of age to present (she is five and a half now.)  We take Bella to Play Dates one hour, three times a week. These Play Dates provide socializing between dogs and owners as well as between all owners who must be in control of their dogs.  Since I have severe back issues, Corey provides assistance for me. Her new facility allows for indoor play when the weather is inclement.
I don’t know how we could do this without her.” –  Merv Ellert
“Both my children have attended the Kids & K9 Camp at Muttz with Mannerz for a few years now with both of our dogs. Corey knows how to keep children and dogs engaged and to make every session so much fun while learning lots! The children learned how to communicate with their dog and teach them basic commands and agility with positive reinforcement. They also learned about bite prevention and attended a teeth cleaning procedure at the veterinarian. Corey has a wonderful energy when engaging with dogs and humans.
We highly recommend Muttz with Mannerz!”

“I have been taking my rescue dog, Marko, to Muttz with Mannerz play dates for over 6 months now. Like many dogs in a new situation, he started out very timid but in a very short time (after 1 or 2 sessions), he came out of shell and started playing with other dogs. The play area is secure and supervised by experienced trainers which gives me confidence that he can play and socialize in a safe environment. The trainers, Corey and Barb are very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Muttz with Mannerz play dates for anyone looking to provide a safe environment for their dogs to play.”
– Katy Chan
“Muttz with Mannerz has a great team, they are well-educated, and passionate about the dogs having a positive experience. Also a priority for them is to have a safe environment for the dogs to play. I have a Golden Retriever pup and she just can’t wait to get out of the car. For new dog owners they provide a lot of articles on crate training, behavioral issues , teeth cleaning etc.”
