About this app

GoodPup’s one-on-one video call training is today’s most effective dog training program.

Using video calls, we bring you the top trainers from across the country, so you and your pup work with the absolute best. Our certified trainers will guide you through a course that includes a weekly video call, daily training goals, and text check-ins for whenever you have questions.

Why GoodPup Training Is So Effective

1. By using video calls, you get to work with the best trainers from across the country.
You get a course that is built for how pups actually learn. Complete daily goals set during your video session and check in with your trainer over text whenever you need help.
2. You and your pup train at home - an environment that has fewer distractions and where your pup is already comfortable.
3. GoodPup uses positive reinforcement training, which is backed by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

How It Works

1. Weekly Video Call: You’ll work with your trainer one-on-one each week to learn commands and practice.
2. Daily Goals: Your trainer will give you short, focused exercises for you and your pup.
3. Text Check-Ins: Have a question during the week? Send your trainer a message in GoodPup Chat.
4. Guaranteed Results: We know GoodPup works. If for any reason you aren’t satisfied with your training in the first month, we’ll give you a full refund.

What You’ll Learn

1. Potty Training and Crate Training
2. 8 Basic Commands: Teaching your dog its name, sit, lay down, stay (with a release word), come, heel, leave it, and go to your spot.
3. Skills to Avoid Bad Behavior: Socialization with other people and animals; plus, preventing begging, barking, and jumping.

GoodPup training is an auto-renewing weekly subscription that can be canceled at any time. Your first week of training is free. Still have questions? Feel free to send us an e-mail at

Love this app and program. The instructions are great and easy to follow. The progression is perfect. Our trainer Angelique is super, extremely knowledgeable and able to adapt to meet the needs of training the shelter dig we adopted. The program also includes a chat function that is so helpful in between sessions.

We, like many others, rescued a dog during quarantine. I signed up expecting a basic training course, but it was MUCH better than I imagined! The chat support is phenomenal, and the trainer we were assigned was very knowledgeable, encouraging, and helpful. I have already recommended this app to a few of my friends who also have new dogs. There is amazing value in this app!!

The app was very easy to use. Karen's guidance was instrumental in making our experience with our new puppy great. Her tips and advice were extremely clear. She was very experienced and knowledgeable. She had excellent tips for every problem we encountered.
