Good As Gold Dog Training

Golden Retriever puppy

Dog training isn't expensive....It's priceless!!

I am a certified trainer specializing in problem behavior and basic obedience. I am a registered canine good citizen evaluator for the AKC. I offer private instruction locally for reasonable prices, and can custom tailor programs to meet you and your dogs needs .

Good as gold boarding and training facility

We are now offering boarding services, training classes, and board and train programs at our new facility in Smithville.

Leave your dog in our care in our brand new state of the art Kennel.

Enroll him in our board and train program and when you return home he will be basic obedience trained!!

In- Home Training

These programs are for private lessons in your home. Each session will last 45 mins to 1 hour. They are done at a time and date that is convenient for you. This is the most effective training available, as it is one on one with the trainer.
