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.
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
