Doggie Do Good, Inc.

Doggie Do Good is a full service training facility located in the heart of Central California’s coast in San Luis Obispo. We are located on a 2.5 acre ranchette in Arroyo Grande just 6 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Doggie Do Good specializes in training dogs whose owners are at the end of their leash. Doggie Do Good, Inc. provides several different training options to best meet the needs of the owner and their doggie. We offer basic obedience classes for those looking to do the training themselves and just need some professional dog training instruction to help out. We also provide Private Lessons for those who need specialized dog training on their schedule and at their location. Our most popular method of dog training is Doggie Camp. Doggie Camp was modeled after our Service Dog program for people with disabilities who need a service dog to help with the daily tasks of life. With Doggie Camp, your dog would come and stay at our facility / home and learn all the obedience and behaviors you are too busy to train yourself. At the end of Doggie Camp, we spend as much time as is needed to show you what your doggie has learned, how it was trained, and how to keep the training up yourself. Doggie Camp is ideal for those with very busy schedules and for those in need of advanced or specialized training. Of course we also provide service dog training for those who are in need of a service dog companion who is always ready to help you out. With service dog training, we can locate a dog for you and we can also evaluate your doggie to see if they would be a good candidate for the tasks required by you. Please give us a call regarding any of our dog training offerings.
