Mancini has dedicated his career to training "man's best friend." He began his career at Southeastern Guide Dogs where he learned the very specialized skill of training dogs to guide blind/visually impaired individuals. Mancini went on to become one of only a handful of people in the world to train wheelchair guide dogs. This highly specialized training involves training guide dogs to work with a visually impaired person who also requires the use of a wheelchair.
Mancini desired to extend his knowledge of dog training into the public sector. He opened Mind Your Manners Canine Training in 2004 and has worked with more than 3600 dogs and their owners. Mancini is skilled at reading dog body language, behavior modification and teaching dog obedience.
Mancini's training philosophy involves positive reinforcement, patience and respect for the animal.
Mancini has been recognized for his work in The Sarasota Tribune, Manatee Herald and FOX 13 News.
