What dog pros say
“I want to share an event that I was not sure would ever come… A Good Dog Day Behavior and Training is 10 years old this month!!! I wanted to shout out and thank you ladies for all of your help, I never would have been able to get to this place on my own.”
– Shelly Keel, A Good Dog Day, Chico, CA
