COVID19 regulations

In order to comply with the New Jersey executive orders re COVID-19 limiting indoor gatherings, we ask that only one member per family attend orientations and classes. The person attending may take videos of any and all lessons and share all the paperwork they are given with other family members.  This is surely not ideal since we recognize owning a dog is a family affair but we must put everyone's health and wellbeing first and foremost.  Thank you for your compliance and cooperation.

Our Support Staff

Mary Mcmanus - Support Staff

That pleasant, helpful person you hear on the phone on Tuesday and Friday evenings, Thursday mornings and Sundays is Mary (McManus). Mary began volunteering at WonderDogs in 2002 and by 2004 had become a permanent employee. Her love of dogs and compassion for people is apparent in everything she does and she never tires of meeting new students and their dogs. While she is especially attracted to Goldens and Labradors, she admits to falling in love with pretty much every dog that enters our doors.

Mary is the person who keeps us from making too many administrative mistakes and is primarily responsible for making sure we stay on track. She currently shares her home and heart with Megan, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, but will happily fall in love with our students’ dogs at every opportunity.
