Goodladd Dog Training has trained dogs from all over the world. Here is just a sample of some of our happy, happy customers!


“We have been working with Janine since Winston was a pup and he has become a STAR pupil!! Off leash, responsive and perfectly obedient...and having more fun all the time! Thank you, Janine!”



“I wanted to thank you for the care and attention you gave to Emmett while he was at the “farm” and in Training. Emmett, a cute Wheaton Terrier who thought he was the Alpha, dominated my household. It was amazing to me that after three weeks he arrived home a new dog. He is obedient and controllable. ”



“ I think you gave us back a different dog. Merlot is so easy to control, especially on leash! I was training outside and a rabbit and a cat crossed our path. Merlot noticed both but did not break her leash discipline. Then Bailey was jumping at her and trying to play and Merlot stayed right on cue with me. Very impressive. In fact the difference in her versus her sibs is striking. I am ready to FedEx Bailey to you overnight delivery!”




“ Ellie - is - fantastic! What a difference! Pete and I are both amazed with the  work you’ve done and can’t thank you enough. I don’t know how you did it but wow! ... it was so great to take her out this weekend, off the leash and let her do her thing! It’s a lot of fun to watch her in her element.”


"I have an almost 3 year old lab. Bowie has been my baby since the day we rescued him at 7 weeks old. He knew some basic commands, but was a terrible listener and very high energy. I recently had a baby and bowie was just too jumpy and high energy for our comfort. I called Janine the day I got home from the hospital and I was in tears. She quickly talked my down and we set up a time for bowie to be trained. My husband and I knew that without this training we’d have to rehome our pup and that was the last thing we wanted to do. Fast forward 6 weeks and bowie is Home again and living upstairs with us as a family. He no longer jumps on anyone, he can be off leash to run out that energy, and not once but three times today on his walk I was stopped and told how well behaved my guy was. I am beyond happy with the results of Janine’s training and I couldn’t be more proud of my guy, Bowie."


I can’t thank you enough for all the hard work you did with Clara. I see such a vast improvement already! You’ve got really big shoes for us to fill. Hopefully we won’t let you or Clara down.
