Good Boy Training

ENRICHING LIVES ONE DOG AT A TIME

Remember that fluffy bundle of joy you brought home? He was supposed to be perfect. Maybe it started out that way but then reality hit; that bundle of joy grew up, grew teeth, and grew his own will. When you bring a new dog home you can expect to encounter challenges. Some can be mere inconveniences, while others can be dangerous for you and your dog alike. At Good Boy Training, we work cases big and small to help you achieve the dog of your dreams. 

We do not use pain, fear, or intimidation to train our students! Aversive/dominance based methods do not help our dogs learn. In fact, they damage our relationship and cause significant stress, leading to bigger behavior challenges. We use science-based, positive methods in our training classes which are fun, they help our dogs stay engaged, and teach key concepts! This way we help our dogs grow in areas like confidence, calmness, focus and reliability. 


our philosophy

Positive reinforcement training is an extremely important practice to me and one of my top priorities as a pet trainer. Having worked with many adult dogs who struggle with anxiety and reactivity issues, I have a special passion for working with puppies to prevent these issues from developing in the first place. My goal is to provide you with the tools you need to have the dog of your dreams.

We do this by teaching your dog how to have self control, remain calm in distracting environments, how to look to you to ask for what they need, and teaching them the foundations of basic obedience

we are a dog lover, 
just like you.

about us

our Students

- Hannah I.

I can’t recommend Brittany enough. I am constantly referring people to her. Not only does she really take the time to listen to you and your pup, but she uses evidence based positive reinforcement techniques.
 I have learned so much from her in just a few sessions. My dog is an office dog at our chiropractic practice and we are constantly getting asked who trains her because she is so well behaved. I also love how Brittany makes it easy to integrate her training tips into every day life.

- Michael B.

We have had a wonderful experience with Brittany at Good Boy Training. It was clear from our first consultation how thorough and comprehensive Brittany was in asking us questions about Our dogs behavior. We have seen incremental improvement with basic commands and more. She connected with our dog immediately thus it was a no-brainer to work with her. She is patient, fun, and clearly knowledgeable about dogs. Highest recommendation!

-ALY G.

Brittany is an honest, hard working professional. She means business when it comes to bringing out the best in your pup. My Matti is a rescue with SEVERE anxiety and fear issues. Brit has been able to work with Matti and help her to achieve goals at a pace that Matti is comfortable with. She has the patience of a saint! Brit has been a great support to me and my family as she is always reliable and is very responsive when I reach out.
