Welcome to Puppyhood! This is a very important and exciting time in your Puppy's life. Establishing rules and boundaries, proper socialization and teaching your puppy the basics in commands to communicate with you are all part of these training classes. I will help teach you how to deal appropriately with typical "unwanted" behaviors from your puppy such as; nipping, chewing, barking, jumping. Effectively teaching your puppy manners will help with social situations and you and puppy living in harmony with each other. We will also discuss potty training, a proper feeding schedule/routine, exercise for your puppy and much more. Your puppy will learn to sit, stay, lay down, come when called and many more commands. I am very excited to have an opportunity to work with you and your puppy.

I will help you to re-establish leadership with your dog in a positive and non-physical punishment approach. We will touch base on any unwanted behavioral issues you are having with your dog. Some of the most common unwanted behavioral issues are; excessive barking, jumping, biting, using the inside of your house as their toilet, minor aggression issues and lack of "peace" in the household. One appointment is usually sufficient in getting these behaviors under control. My goal is to help you keep the peace and living in harmony with your dog, your family, friends, and you. I promise to do my best to help you succeed in this!

Phone Consultation for Behavioral Modification

  • Phone Consultation with Email Summary
  • If 6 Months or Older Dog Must Be Spayed or Neutered (spaying and neutering plays a HUGE role in behavioral modification) - SOME EXCEPTIONS APPLY

Is your lifestyle so busy that you just don’t have time to work one-on-one with a trainer? Do you feel it would be easier to do a phone consultation which could better serve you and your dog’s needs? Then this could be what you are looking for.

Additional Hourly Appointments

  • These additional appointments are ONLY provided after the Puppy Obedience, 2-Hour Behavioral Consultation, or Phone Consultation has been completed
  • One Hour Training Session at Your Home
  • Includes a follow up call 3 weeks after our last appointment to see how progress is being made with your dog
  • Each visit will allow question and answer time
  • Cost: $65 (1 hours total)
  • A one time travel fee of $15.00 is automatically applied outside of Grand Rapids Area (per Good Little Dog's discretion)

If you completed any of the above programs, and are excited to continue with additional training, this is a good opportunity to do just that in an hour session. This session allows you to pick up right where you left off of to continue down the right path with your dog with extended command and behavioral work. 

There are no guarantees or refunds.

Good Little Dog can’t guarantee results because much of the success of a behavioral modification plan depends on the owner's compliance, the dog’s background, current environment, the severity of the problem, and how long it has been going on.
