Good Dog in a box is a dog products company with it’s roots in positive reinforcement dog training. We’re a little bit old school mail order, a little bit high tech e-learning, a dash of fun and games, and a pinch of puppy love. We’re in a position to help you improve life WITH and FOR your dog. Happy families with happy dogs means less dogs surrendered to animal shelters. Together, we can make a difference.

We’re reaching and teaching the next generation of dog owner.

96% of dogs abandoned at animals shelters never had any type of obedience training. When a dog is communicating with their family, and their family isn’t listening, bad things happen. We can help change that. We exist to improve the relationship people and children have with their dogs. Owning a dog can and should be a beautiful experience.
