Training at GoodFellas

From Puppy to Adult, GoodFellas Training Program can provide you with the tools you need to raise a well mannered member of the family!

GoodFellas Training is not clicker or treat based training.  Our training is results oriented, with the use of praising good behavior and correcting bad behavior.  Just like human children, your dog will learn faster when you praise him and celebrate the good stuff, but you also need to tell him when he is doing something wrong to.

Our Trainer
Kimberly Vasquez

Kim's journey into dog training started in 2008 as the neighborhood dog walker and groomer.  Eventually, her passion for understanding the complexities of the dog world brought her to volunteer at the Northeast Animal Shelter.  It was here that she worked with dogs who displayed a wide variety of behavioral challenges.  Kim thrived in this environment.  From her desire to help every dog, a talent and gift emerged.  Kim quickly realized the influence of having a well balanced and trained companion had on the relationship between human and dog.

Kim refined her skills as a trainer when she began working at GoodFellas as a dog handler in 2014.  At GoodFellas she gained  a wealth of knowledge in canine body language, pack mentality, pack leadership and a diverse range of additional techniques that supplemented her expertise and skills.

Kim began training professionally, focusing on private lessons as she taught puppy and adult basic obedience and behavior modification before becoming GoodFellas Group Trainer.

Puppies 6 months and younger are welcome to attend our Puppy Social!   Puppy Social is a great opportunity for your pup to learn some basic obedience skills and the difference between good behavior and unacceptable behavior.  We complete exercises to help build confidence and teach good social skills as they socialize and learn with other puppies under the careful leadership of our Trainer.

Basic Obedience

On-leash, learn how to teach your dog sit, down, stay, loose leash walking, line-of-sight recall, out-of-sight recall, leadership, bonding and confidence building exercises with the used of agility equipment, "stranger danger" and more!

Intermediate Obedience
Off-leash training with distractions and distance.  This course reinforces basic obedience disciplines, agility challenges, heeling and total recall while off-leash.

Training Specialities
Private Classes and Behavior Modification

Most behavior can be modified through our basic group classes but sometimes one-on-one attention is required for the situation.  Give us a call if you're not sure how to proceed.
