If you live in the South Bay, Westside, or the surrounding area and need a trusted dog trainer – look no further. Good Choices Dog Trainers are all Certified Professionals who have experience with puppies, reactivity, aggression, agility, tricks, and all of the basics for new dogs, long time companions, and everything in between.

Good Choices Dog Training offers a variety of ways to achieve your training goals. If your dog is friendly, Group Classes are a great way to get started or continue your dog's training journey. We also offer Private In-Home Training for dogs who may not be ready for a group or for those owners who prefer the benefits of one-on-one training.

We believe that training your dog is a great way to build trust, deepen your bond, and just have a great time with your pooch! We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn more about training and care for your dog. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles and don't forget to sign up for our Newsletter so you don't miss any of our exciting events, classes, or workshops. If you have any questions, call 424-262-5004 or email us and we'll promptly get back to you. We offer Group Classes in two locations for your convenience -- Global Pet Food Outlet in Culver City and Camp Run-A-Mutt in Gardena.

  • "We've just started our obedience classes with Melanie and it's been a lot of fun! She's very approachable and patient with me and our dog. We have some homework to do and she gave us a lot of good tips for when we try training at home. Can't wait for our next class!"

  • "My dog Dolly is a 1 yr old Shelter rescue & she has a hard time focusing but Melanie gets the job done! So happy to have their services at Camprunamutt! Dolly looks like the dog on the left on this cover page here."

  • "Loved Melanie, she was very thorough in all we have to do for all of our Dogs! We have 4 of them and she addressed each one of them with a caring attitude. We learned so much from her in just one hour. We look forward to our next training with her."

  • ""Wonderful experience with Robin at Good Choices. We have tried several different programs over the last several years, we were at the end of our rope with our wonderful family pet who had severe issues with strangers and public spaces. Robin approached the situation very differently than other trainers and was patient and caring. We have now have a dog that we are not afraid to take out of the house and to invite new people into our house.""

  • "I wanted to share another success story related to your training :) Bear's medication is causing him to drink & urinate more frequently which meant more accidents inside & more walks outside - at least 7 pee walks a day including a 3-4am walk. With 2 flights of stairs, it was weighing on me.
    I decided to order real grass to put on the patio to help with the additional walks (and my back!). Bear took to it immediately, however it took a bit longer and more encouragement for Rocky & Riley the first night before bed - Riley wanted nothing to do with it - that's where your training came in handy..

    I worked with each of them individually - Using a version of the mat command, It took about 5 minutes. I was so excited!!

    The voice commands helped SO MUCH! Walks have been so much easier using everything we worked on. They love receiving rewards so it's a win win!
