The Journey to a Well-Behaved, Happy Dog Starts Here

Dear future canine connoisseur,

The quest to cultivate a harmonious bond with your furry friend can be daunting. We know there are plenty of worries and uncertainties crowding your mind.

“What if my dog doesn’t get along with others?”
“Can my reactive dog ever learn to be calm in public?”
“Are these aggressive behaviours going to last forever?”
“Can my dog ever be obedient without the leash?”
“How do I even start addressing these behaviors?”

These questions might make you feel like you’re at the end of your leash. But hold on, we’ve got you.

You dream of peaceful walks in the park, fun playdates, and a well-mannered companion to make proud moments at home and in public. Yet, the journey towards achieving this can feel like a long, winding, and often confusing trail.

Does my dog need one-on-one training?
How long will it take to train my dog?
Will my dog be comfortable with the trainer?

These are all valid concerns, and we are here to address them.

We won’t leave you chasing your tail with overly technical training lingo. Instead, we believe in a clear and open dialogue about your dog’s training process, ensuring you understand and feel confident about every step along the way.

Choosing a board and train service for your dog is a significant decision. Our aim is to provide you with genuine, consistent dog training guidance. Because at the end of the day, we want you to feel not just reassured, but truly excited about your dog’s progress.

You deserve a peaceful, enjoyable relationship with your dog.

Allow us to be your guides in this process. We promise a stress-free, rewarding experience as we craft the ideal training program for you and your dog.

TESTIMONIALS

What our customers are saying about Board & Train

Medium dog a Rottweiler

“We were lucky to have Good Dog Training train our beautiful girl Laila under their Board and Train Program. Laila had fear aggression with people, particularly in the home, as well as possession aggression over those she is closest to in the family. It was a matter of when will she bite someone, not if. Laila is a bull-mastiff staffy and very strong willed, stubborn and protective of her home and family. We really were at our wits end after trying (and paying for) many forms of training over the last year, all to no real effect.

Laila had an extended stay with Good Dog Training due to lockdown – lucky Laila. We have noticed such a big difference with her since we have brought her home. She is so much calmer and comfortable in her surroundings. She has gone from barking at EVERYTHING to practically not barking at all. She walks nicely on the lead on walks and her recall is so much better. It has taken so much pressure off us in the home to not have to worry about who she would react to next.

“We still have work to do as the training is now with us to carry through, but we now have the tools to keep up the good work and we can see huge changes resulting from her training. It has been worth every cent spent for her board and train. We would highly recommend Good Dog Training Board and Train. We will also use their kennels in the future. Thank you Good Dog Training!”

two dogs playing tug of war

the boys are doing amazing. I’m really enjoying both of them. We do a lot of work to keep up your guys hard work but it’s so nice to have dogs that I can take out and trust that they won’t embarrass me or get us into a dangerous situation by running off. They are also enjoying a lot more free time off leash so they are loving life. All thanks to you and the team there. Best thing we done for them was to send them to you guys, I’ve learnt truck loads and so have they!

“These guys are AMAZING.

Ryan and his team have gone above and beyond in helping Kobe’s behavioural issues. Would 100% recommend their services as they have been worth every penny. My dog is a different dog and its all credit to Ryan and Good Dog Training”
