Puppy Good Start - Train Don't Complain
Upcoming Classes


Meet the Trainers

The curriculum we cover in our classes has been developed by Carin and Eileen the founders of Puppy Good Start. Carin and Eileen combine a lifetime of experience with current scientific learning theory. 

We have 3 trainers, Carin, Eileen and Marisa. All three trainers are certified with the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers www.ccpdt.org/. This certification requires years of experience as well as rigorous written exams and continuing education. Carin, Eileen, and Marisa are also AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluators. Last but not least we all participate in various competitive dog sports such as obedience, agility, water dog, and skijoring. Our diverse backgrounds bring a multifaceted approach to training puppies and dogs.
