Better Dog Training, Better Relationships - About Us | GoodPup

Better relationships through better training

The key to a happy life with your dog? Training.

Behavior is one of the top reasons dogs are sent to shelters, according to the The Humane Society of the United States. Our mission is to help every dog and dog parent live their best lives together – so we created training that is effective, affordable, and rewarding.

GoodPup training is 1–1, at-home, on your schedule, with trainers ready to help 24/7.

Plus, a week of private training with GoodPup costs the same as a single group class at most pet stores.

It's effective

Reward-based training is more effective as it results in quicker cue recognition and response time, according to the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.

It's humane

Positive reinforcement training is considered better for the human-canine bond and animal welfare, according to studies published in the Journal of Veterinary Behavior.
