Dog Training Tips

How To Train Your Dog To Respect Thresholds.

Is your dog a door dasher? Does he/she bound through open doors with disregard for your personal space? Does your dog look for any opportunity to escape the house and run free? If you LOVE your dog, then teach them threshold boundaries.
This is an important and possibly life saving skill. It teaches your dog that just because a door is open, doesn’t mean they are allowed to pass through it.

Jana did a great job with my 2 babies. Even Ziva (she is a real mama’s girl) warmed up by day 2 and played fetch with her. I was not expecting the detailed report card left by my sitter so, when I read it, that was an awesome thing to be given. Loved all the pictures. This service was just what I was looking for! – Rhonda F.


Dog Training:

It’s like I got a new dog! 
Alexis’s dog Penny (the smaller one) had previously gotten off leash and attacked another dog while out on a walk.

Alexis’s Goal: To be able to walk her two dogs without being pulled down or having them be a liability to her and those around her. WATCH VIDEO TESTIMONIAL HERE

Good Dog! Spotlight: Pet of the Month

Welcome to the Good Dog! Family of pets Brewster!

One of our most recent newcomers, Brewster is a feisty senior MinPin (Miniature Pinscher). He was a little shy at first but has really opened up with his pet sitters Wendy and Rachel. Wendy says ”He’s a spunky, silly old man and a real sweetheart.”.
Brewster lives with his owner at a local retirement community. His pet sitters Wendy and Rachel LOVE taking turns visiting Brewster and his dad several times a day for potty breaks and walks. This allows Brewster’s owner to continue to enjoy Brewster’s company for years to come. 
Pets can truly be a stabilizing and life sustaining element in their senior owners world. Animals help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and increase social interaction and physical activity.

The Min Pin is a small breed from the Pinscher family which originated in Germany. They are an intelligent, energetic and fearless breed. They have a tendency to be suspicious of strangers so early and ongoing training an socialization are a must. 
Did you know??? 
The Min Pin has a long history dating back several centuries.
Their main use was to control the rat population in barns and stables.

Contrary to popular belief, they are NOT a miniature Doberman.

The Miniature Pinscher predates the Doberman Pinscher by centuries. 

If you have a senior parent who needs a little help with their dog’s care, daily, weekly or even as needed dog walks or potty breaks, give us a call! We would LOVE to help!
Having one of our caring pet sitters visit them is a bright spot in their day for both dog and owner! Learn more about our services HERE


With our BOARD & TRAIN HYBRID Programs, the dog you have today, doesn’t have to be the dog you have tomorrow.

Happier owners and happier dogs!
You AND your dog will be better educated and HAPPIER!


Most Board & Train programs give little follow up care to the 
owner. It’s all about the time spent with the dog while it’s boarding. While this is great for the dog, what is the owner
learning? This philosophy makes it very difficult for the dog and their owners to succeed in the long run.

You see, dog trainers can train dogs. That’s a given. But, in the long run the dog lives with the owner so, the owner needs to learn how to maintain what was taught to the dog in the first place. The owner needs training as much as the dog does! An hour or two at the training facility when they pick up their dog isn’t going to cut it. Not remotely. When the dog goes home, the owners are ill equipped for the flashback that the dog will most assuredly experience. At Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care we give you more, much more. HYBRID IS A COMBINATION OF BOARD & TRAIN AND ONE ON ONE TRAINING WITH THE OWNERS.
If you LOVE your dog but don’t like them very much, training can be a game changer.

Do you own a Door Dasher?

 Thresholds as it pertains to dogs is an important area of training but oftentimes overlooked area of training with many owners and dog trainers.
 Teaching a dog NOT to move through a threshold unless invited to do so can be lifesaving. A threshold is a door to the house, car door, crate door etc. 
Many times I’ve heard of dogs escaping through a door only to get lost, or worse, hit by a car or engage in a dog fight or even harm a person.
Teaching your dog to respect thresholds is a simple process. You’ll LOVE the difference in your dog.
Start by having your dog sit or down a short distance from the door (giving space) when you take them out or in. In the early stages of training, having a leash on your dog gives you better control.  READ MORE
