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!
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!
Best place for your fur babies!
I did obedience training with my puppy and instead of just teaching you some tricks (like a lot of other places do) Ryan gives you an understanding into your dog’s mind and psychology, helps you to build a great basis for your relationship. The training helped me with numerous issues that we had with our puppy’s cheecky behavior. Definitely recommend!
My dog loves doggy daycare.
My dog loves doggy daycare at Good Dog Training. She is always excited when she’s told she’s going to “puppy school” and always tired after spending the day there. It is also awesome to see videos of the dogs playing throughout the day that are available on the Good Dog Trainings’ Facebook page.
What an amazing experienced team.
Can’t wait for the dogs to start their training. GREAT WORK GUYS
We are Happy Owners!
I had a 1:1 with Ryan and my rescue pup Seamus last week. Before training I’d try to walk him and we’d last 20 minutes before I’d lost all circulation in my hands from the constant pulling (he’d walk some of it bouncing on his hind legs) and it was just too stressful especially if we came across another dog (too excited and not knowing what the other dog was like).
I’m on our first walk after training Seamus walked just behind me the whole time, slack lead, sat at the roadside on command before crossing and we even met people and dogs on our walk and he say and behaved the whole time. I was the problem, not my boy and now we can enjoy our walks. Plus after 40min he completely passes out and is happy. Should have done this AGES ago. Thanks Ryan!
The Best Call I Ever Made.
Called Good Dog Training after seeking help with other trainers who I felt didn’t really listen or take the time to understand our issues – they bundled us up into a box which didn’t address the issues we were having. Ryan was calm, supportive and understanding of our situation and provided some honest advice, practical tips and insight into the reasons behind some of the behaviors we were seeing. He truly has an amazing way with animals (and people).
Highly Highly Rate Good Dog Training.
Ryan and Amber really work well together at providing excellent dog training and all round doggie services. Ryan’s attitude with the dogs, firm but fear, worked a treat with my hunterways who were trying to rule the roost far too much. If you are lucky enough to get your dog in for training with Ryan you won’t regret it
First walk after one session with Ryan. Waking happily together in collars and leads, ignoring the barking dogs, the cars and the jogger who ran right past! Thank you so much, much happier dogs and much much happier owner!
Walks now best part of our day
Ryan was great and a huge help to me and Dexter I was starting to not want to walk him because of the pulling and issues whenever another dog came around the corner. He took me through what to do in these situations and explained everything so well. He has been there every step of the way keeping in touch. Our walks are now the best part of my day I highly recommend Good Dog Training to anyone that could do with some guidance with training your dog.
I called Good Dog Training after seeking help with other trainers who I felt didn’t really listen or take the time to understand our issues – they bundled us up into a box which didn’t address the issues we were having. Our rescue pup began to grow into a strong, dominant dog and I was unable to control when walking out in public – certainly not even contemplate letting off leash.
Others immediately compartmentalized his issues as dog on dog aggression. Ryan was calm, supportive and understanding of our situation and provided some honest advice, practical tips and insight into the reasons behind some of the behaviors we were seeing. He truly has an amazing way with animals (and people ). Calling Good Dog Training was the best call I ever made
