We started Good Wolff because we want to offer people safe, friendly and efficient training and behavior modification for their dogs. We only use humane, field-tested, science-based methods for dog training and behavior modification.
You and your dog are safe with us. No owner shaming or embarrassing. No judgement about your dog’s character or breed. And we don’t use methods that rely on pain, fear or startle.
We love dogs but we also love people. Let us be your dog-human life coach.
We know your time is valuable so we will not waste it. We’ll identify the problem, devise a training plan and help set obtainable goals so you can get relief and see progress!
"Jane and Laura are phenomenal at helping you to understand why behavior is happening, what your dog is thinking when it happens and how to help them overcome their stressors. We've seen the learning theory techniques we've picked up from Good Wolff translate to many other behaviors in our pups, as well!

"I can’t say enough good things about Jane. She gives you both the confidence and the tools that you need to continue training at home and she never once made me feel like my dog was bad or aggressive, even though that’s what everyone else saw of him."
