Good CitiZEN Dog Training Boise will help you create a healthy, happy home for you and your dog. We put the ZEN in dog training!

A good dog trainer enjoys working with people as well as their dogs. That’s our claim to fame. People and their four-legged friends all over Ada County enjoy working with our Good CitiZEN Trainers. A first-rate dog training service will support your needs, allow you to enjoy your new addition more, and take the stress out of your home.

Our Methods are Positive & Proven

Using positive, reward-based techniques, our experienced trainers are able to help you realize and accomplish your training goals. We educate you about the science of canine behavior so that you understand what motivates your dog – the critical element to gaining more attention and control with your pet.

What can you expect from the Good CitiZEN Dog Training experience? A dog that walks politely on a leash instead of pulling your arm off. A pet that greets visitors at your front door politely and without barking or jumping. A dog that is a calm and productive member of the family. These are the kinds of behaviors that Good CitiZEN-trained dogs proudly exhibit. 

What's in the Curriculum? 

You will learn the essentials of reward-based training and how to pair it with proper timing and consistency to reap major benefits in your dog’s overall behavior.

You will receive one-on-one coaching to learn the skills to handle your dog in a variety of situations.

A fun approach that makes training easy for both you and your dog!

Private lessons Produce Quick Results and Include the Whole Family

A key benefit of Private Sessions in Basic Obedience is that the sessions can fit your schedule and include your entire family. Each one-hour session includes hands-on training by our expert to help your dog learn more quickly. 

 

For More Intensive Dog Training, try our Boot Camp or Board & Training Programs

The Boot Camp and Board & Train options focus on intensive one-on-one training with your dog. The dog comes back to your home with a progress report on the training activities and we debrief you on all that he has learned. 

Group Classes are a Popular Choice for Many Dog and Puppy Owners

In these interactive classes the dogs and their owners can learn and have fun with other classmates. 

Group classes provide important  socializing opportunities, as well as a fun environment for everyone to learn. 

Aggression and Behavior Problems are Nipped in the Bud with our Advanced Meet & Greet

No dog training business in the Treasure Valley has the success of our very specialized Advance Meet & Greet Class. Advanced Meet & Greet is specialty training in a supportive group atmosphere that addresses “inappropriate” behavior, primarily on-leash. Whether your dog is “over the top” with enthusiasm, or a little growly, snarly, or lunges at other dogs as you walk in your neighborhood, this class will help. The results are amazing!  

We are happy to provide our most popular dog obedience or specialty class to a location convenient to you. Please contact us at the number below so we may arrange an Advanced Meet & Greet near you.
