Family friendly dog training fun that works!

Many of the dog training exercises in the Good Dog program are kid friendly, meaning that your children can participate with adult supervision. Children under the age of twelve should always be supervised around a dog, even a family dog that you've known for years.

The training game videos you'll view in this account are meant to be adult supervised and repeated again and again throughout the month. Practicing in different rooms of the house, inside vs outside, and with different members of the family can keep things entertaining and exciting until a next set of lessons arrives. Consistency and repetition is the key to success. We recommend training sessions of 5 to 10 minutes at a time, one to several times per day.

Your dog is unique

It's important to remember that every dog is unique, just as every child is unique. Each dog will have its own learning style and attention span. Your dog may learn some training games quickly, while others may take more practice. If your dog walks away in the middle of a training game or you're not getting the response you're hoping for, that's OK. Stop and come back later.

Does not address aggression or fear

The Good Dog program does not address aggressive or fear based behaviors in dogs, which require the assistance of a positive reinforcement dog training professional.

Watch the videos in order

We recommend watching the videos in the order provided. For the training game videos, we recommend mastering one game before moving to the next. Each training game builds on skills for future games. The exceptions are the TTouch exercises. These gentle petting and relaxation exercises can be used anywhere in the program with any frequency.

Frequently asked questions

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and you'll be provided continuous access to the training videos. Take your time and watch them as many times as you like. Repetition is good for everyone. 

Was this written by a professional dog trainer?

Yes it was. Jenn Merritt, CPDT-KA, BS, was a professional reward based dog trainer for more than thirteen years. She was also Fear Free certified and a Tellington TTouch Guild Member.

What does reward based dog training mean?

Reward based dog training or positive reinforcement dog training uses praise and/or treats to reward your dog for doing something you want him to do. Dogs quickly learn what behavior to repeat to get praise and rewards. Reward based training does not use punishment, force, or any type of training device that injures or hurts your dog.
