I work at UC Davis veterinary hospital. My colleague recommend Animal Manners to me. We had a list of several trainers but I tried this one first. Kris called back within the hour. She was professional and very helpful on the phone and has now been to our home 5 times for sessions. We can’t thank you enough for your compassion and expertise. We went from almost retuning our dog to now having a clear understanding of our training communication with him and he is doing great!! I highly recommend Kris and her team. As a bonus she also boards dogs at her house and Nico will be staying for the weekend! No cages just inside with her and her family. We thank you, Nico thanks you. More...
I’ve tried many boarding, training and daycare businesses in the nearly 20 years I have lived in the Sacramento area. Nothing even comes close to Animinal Manners in my opinion. Cage free, in home, with someone on site... yes, please. Add the interaction and training from Kris, one of the areas best... you simply can’t get better. I am happy to say I am no longer searching for canine utopia, as I’ve found it. My four legged side-kick agrees. More...
Kris is a wonderful and caring dog person. She has a very firm grasp on what is best for dogs in regards to training and care. The dogs are always her number one priority. Kris has been working with my dog doing some very specialized training and has come up with creative and successful approaches to some of our training hurdles. She is very communicative and easy to get in touch with. I am so grateful that people like Kris exist in this industry. Thank you, Animal Manners! More...
Professional, very caring and you will always know your pooch is in trusting hands!! Excellent service!

Our high energy shepherd husky has learned so much from Kris!! Best trainer and all positive techniques! Our dog was very reactive and she is now well behaved and good with other dogs!!
You can’t do any better than Kris for your trainer and care giver. She works miracles with every dog she trains.
Absolutely the best place to take your four legged furry friend! Day stay, training, overnight care... you wound not be able to find a place better than Animal Manners. Quinn is a huge fan! ��

Kris is very personable, knowledgeable, and helpful; she's absolutely the best. She uses positive reinforcement training for dogs (and owners), and really gets to know the pets. She's super!!
Paws down! the best dog trainer I have ever seen. Had my last Jack Russell in a class with Kris over 20 years ago, and still going with our current 3 dogs. I don't think she likes to be called the dog whisperer, but.... More...
