Since 1973 I have been employed as a professional animal trainer working with a wide variety of both exotic animals and domestic animals.(Primarily Marine Mammals, Dolphins, Killer Whales and Sea Lions. Along the way I also worked with Elephants, Chimpanzees, Tigers, Leopards, Cougars and smaller primates.)
I decided years ago to focus on dog training and established my own business,GOOD DOG! Dog Training, and as my slogan indicates I train dog owners how to train their dog. Most of my business comes from referrals from previous clients and veterinarians, please feel free to call for more information or just ask questions.
Good Dog! Dog Training was started in 2001 by me, Dan Cartwright after a 35 year career as a Marine Mammal trainer. The methods that I used with marine mammals easily transfer to dog training as it a positive reinforcement methodology. I do basic obedience training with dogs of all ages and breeds, this includes problem solving and working with dogs that have aggression issues. I go to the client’s house and train them how to train their dogs. I also offer puppy classes and more specialized training such as scent detection.
