What a day! I covered 6.4 miles of the latest and greatest pet products today at the Global Pet Expo 2018, and that’s not even half the show! Besides being totally exhausted, and a bit overwhelmed, it was a fascinating look into the hottest trends in the nearly $70 billion pet care industry. What follows […]

UPS Dogs was created back in August of 2013, by Sean McCarren, a UPS veteran of seventeen years. With all that is good about […]

Some people think putting their dog in a crate is cruel. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Crate training is one of the easiest ways to help your new dog be successful in your home. Crates provide a den-like, safe space to contain your dog when you aren’t home or aren’t able to supervise […]

Have you ever had a pet or a child that didn’t like to go do the doctor? We’ve all been there, right? In thinking back over the years, I’m not sure who made the bigger fuss about going to the doctor, my children or my pets. No, I take that back, it was my pets.

Jenn Merritt, BS, CPDT-KA, and Kim Merritt-Butler grew up loving dogs. Jenn became a professional dog trainer and Tellington TTouch practitioner and Kim became a serial entrepreneur. Last year they got their heads together and came up with a new way to approach dog training for families. Good Dog in a Box was born.
Their mission is to keep dogs and kids safe through education, awareness, and advocacy. They want to reduce the number of family dogs surrendered at animal shelters by promoting positive, reward based training techniques that are family and kid friendly.
Jenn and Kim want everyone that owns a dog to have fun and enjoy their furry companion. Together, we can make a difference.
We at Good Dog in a Box want to keep family dogs at home, instead of being surrendered to shelters because of "bad behavior." We offer products that promote positive reinforcement dog training, dog bite prevention, dog safety, and humane education to improve the lives of dogs and their people.
