Premier Dog Training Service


“Cannot say enough good things about Mannered Mutts Training!!! In just 4 weeks they took an exciteable bully breed rescue with no manners and turned him in to a gentleman and a good listener! Button would literally leap out of the door every morning so excited to get to school. The trainers are knowledgeable and so helpful, if you’re in the Bloomington area and need training services for your pup these guys are a 10/10 on all accounts.”

"If you're looking for a dog trainer here in Bloomington, look no further! I had been through multiple trainers and felt discouraged with the results. Mannered Mutts Training turned that all around. Jillian is the first dog trainer to directly address the problems my dog was having. I have a rather stubborn and lazy dog and Jillian is incredibly patient and encouraging throughout each lesson. Not only is Jillian an incredible dog trainer, but she is a genuinely caring person. They will go above and beyond for the success of your dog. I have never been so happy with the training and results with my dog. If you live in Bloomington and own a dog, Mannered Mutts Training should be your first choice."

Board and Train

Your dog stays and works with our team, getting multiple training sessions all throughout the day. Per each week of training purchased, you will receive a private lesson with one of our trainers to work on the skills that your dog has learned while staying with us. 


Day Training

Drop your dog off for training weekday mornings and pick them up at the end of the work day. Included with each week of day training purchased you will receive a private lesson to work on the skills that your dog learns during the day.


Private Lessons

Our trainers are available for lessons in the Bloomington area. 

We offer one-on-one lessons with you and your dog. 

Lessons can be in-facility, in-home, at a park, or in a public place of your choosing. This is a great option for people who want to learn to do the training themselves or need extra help in their home environment. 

“Highly recommend Mannered Mutts for dog training! My dog is deaf and tends to have issues with strangers and other dogs. She is now making much better choices in all situations and is much more obedient overall thanks to the Mannered Mutts team!”

“Great job and happy with the training. Willow and I did a few private training sessions. Worked on place, not pulling on the leash, recall and helped me with learning to introduce her to new dogs. Very happy with the results.”

“We had great success with Mannered Mutts Training for Cooper. So much so that we sent our Blossom also. We found them to be professional and our fur babies responded to the training wonderfully. We would highly recommend Mannered Mutts Training.”

Top-Quality Equipment

"They are very patient and responsive trainers. They worked with us and our Border Collie to address some unwanted behaviors we couldn’t overcome on our own, mostly barking, jumping, and feeling comfortable around new dogs and people. They often have multiple approaches for each problem and will work to find what your dog is most responsive to. They thoroughly explained training techniques and took their time with us. You can tell they loves their work and it shows in how dogs respond to them in such a positive way. They were very flexible with our varied schedules and are really easy to work with. They're great and I highly recommend them  for all your dog training needs."

Helping dogs is kind of our thing...

All Mannered Mutts Training employees and clients are required to wear masks while indoors per the current Monroe County mask mandate. Outdoor consults and lessons do not require a mask. If you are dropping off or picking up for a board and train or day training program at our facility you can come in wearing a mask or if you wish to avoid wearing a mask, you can opt to do a curb side pick up and drop off. If you would like to do this call us at (812) 822-1483 when you are a couple minutes away and one of our staff will meet you outside. If you forget your mask or need one let us know! We have cute MMT masks that are free to any client that wants or needs one.
