Group Obedience Classes

Patience, Care, and Compassion

Every animal has a unique personality and disposition. Because of this, each dog gets personal training geared to help them achieve each exercise. We will be instructing the owner as well, so when you leave class each week it is with confidence and understanding of each exercise. This requires a unique trainer with a wide range of experience and a wealth of knowledge. Whether you want to train a puppy or an older dog, you need expert guidance to effectively train your pet. If you love your dog (and I know you do), you can count on Amanda at “A Well Behaved Dog” to train with compassion and confidence to make sure when you leave class each week, you feel comfortable, inspired, and know what to do at home.

Amanda teaches Group Classes at:

* Ansley Animal Clinic, 593 Dutch Valley Road NE, Atlanta, Ga. 30324, (404) 873-1786
She highly recommends the veterinarians at Ansley Animal Clinic.

“Happy Graduates”


Hi Amanda,

“Robert, Jigsaw and I hope that you’ve been well. We enjoyed your Beginner class earlier this year and Jigsaw has really done pretty well.

Jigsaw’s training with you was right on time. We’ve tried to keep up with some of the lessons. There are some things we still need to practice more.

With the cooler Fall weather coming we are interested in some additional training for Jigsaw. We’re thinking an Intermediate class is probably the next best choice. If you know of a class scheduled to begin in the near future we’d probably have an interest in it. Our class was at Ansley Animal Clinic. Also if you have suggestions on a different class we’ll consider that too.”

Thanks again!

Hi Amanda, I wanted to let you know how good of an instructor you were for the beginner class me and my husband enrolled our puppy in. Amelia is a very rambunctious 6-month old German Short Haired Pointer. We benefited from your guidance especially when you took time to address issues or concerns specific to Amelia. We’re hoping to enroll in the Intermediate class at Ansley Animal Clinic starting mid-January. Amelia needs more work with her leash training and we’re excited for the next class. I’ll send the registration form in soon.

Thanks again, Caitlin and Anthony  F.

Amanda demonstrated a master’s level of knowledge while training my dog Stella. She recognized Stella’s unique personality and needs, then addressed those individually while maintaining a group class. I plan to hire Amanda in the future for my dogs’ training needs.

“I wanted to send this letter to express my Happiness for all the help I’ve received from Amanda. Nina went from a untrained, vicious dog to a loving dog. She now listens to commands. Nina still has a lot more training to do but the improvement since the training with Amanda has been wonderful. Amanda is a great trainer and a good teacher. I would recommend Amanda to all of my friends”.

Thank you,

Paula C.
