Dog Training and Trainers

At Good Boy Collective we are advocates for Positive Reinforcement training. Why? Because we believe that training your dog should never involve fear, force or pain. Training should be a positive experience for you and your dog to guide you in having a happy and healthy life together. It’s important to remember that training doesn’t end after puppyhood - it is a lifelong journey and lifestyle!

Here are some resources to assist you in choosing a dog trainer:

For some extra practice at home, we also really love the Puppr app for learning fun tricks or even some extra tips during the puppy phase  

The BCSPCA also has a resource of AnimalKind accredited dog trainers. For more options, please see the AnimalKind search engine here. 

*please note: GBC only recommends these specific trainers based on our personal experience with the trainer or from a trusted source recommendation. Choosing a dog trainer is a personal choice and we advise you to use our resources to aid in your decision.
