Tinley Park, IL Puppy Training and Dog Training ClassesMichele on Customer Service:

“I love being a small business owner.  Prior to starting my own business, I managed and helped run companies with many employees. Although there are benefits of expanding, there are also many benefits of remaining a small business. I feel at this time, I can best meet my high standard for customer service by staying a small business and not letting go of the personal touch that has been a big part of Dog Gone Good’s success. I’m not just in the business for the animals, but also for my love and compassion for people.”

Oak Forest, IL Puppy Training and Dog Training ClassesMission Statement:

Woman with dog in sunset - Professional Dog TrainerI am determined to decrease the horrifying large number of dogs being euthanized in the Chicagoland area and across the nation by helping dogs remain in their homes and out of shelters.  Dog training is a major part of the solution to this ongoing tragedy. A dog can be trained to fit into a home and lifestyle, but the key word is TRAINED.

Dog Gone Good can help your dog be a pawsitively pleasant pet.
