Local Community Mourns Loss of "Dogfather" Lee Mannix
Austin, TX | May 3, 2010 - Lee Mannix, owner of the Lee Mannix Center for Canine Behavior (LMCCB), tragically passed away yesterday evening from injuries sustained from a car accident.  His brother Kevin Mannix who was also in the vehicle is in stable condition.
"We are all in shock and disbelief at this loss," said Shari Elkins, spokesperson for LMCCB.  "Lee was an exceptional trainer with an amazing heart."
Mannix, 40, was a pack behaviorist who consulted on dog behavior and specialized in aggression issues.  He was dedicated to a teaching philosophy based on improving relationships between people and their pets.  He was widely regarded as the last stop for many dogs with aggression and other severe behavior problems, and over the year Lee touched the lives of thousands of dogs and their humans.
Mannix was known for his incredible talent, his easy smile, and his deep generosity. 
The training center will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, May 4th.  The trainers and staff, led by Shari Elkins CPDT-KA, are continuing Lee's mission to help dogs.
Memorial donations in Lee's honor can be made to the Schrodi Training Fund (
Service information to be announced.
