Train – Don’t Complain!

After many (20+) years training puppies/dogs and their owners, Puppy Good Start is closing end of December 2019.

It has been a lot of fun and very rewarding to watch puppies and owners learn new skills! Thank you for letting us be part of your puppies’ training experience!  

Below are key dates for the closing and information about other training schools.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions
