In the Head Start Obedience Program we teach and develop basic commands and introduce the electronic collar.   The initial commands include heel, sit, come, off, ok and kennel.   We begin with simple obedience sessions in a basic yard or indoor area.   Then gradually add additional distractions as dogs are ready.  Our techniques help teach consistency with commands in real life situations and develop a confident young dog.

Jason with Stihl, a young German Shepherd,
in our Companion Dog Program.

Our Companion Dog Program is designed to develop the best behaved pet at home, at the dog park or while traveling. 
In this program we teach and reinforce obedience commands for family dogs. By use of voice, whistle and/or hand commands we reinforce obedience in low and high distraction situations, on and off leash. The commands we work with are heel, sit, come, place, down, off, ok and kennel.  





Private Lessons are a one on one training session with Jason Gooding.  Any of the above programs or special issues can be incorporated into private lessons.  Lessons are also a great way to develop your skills as a handler.  The average lesson will run 30 to 60 minutes.  They can be done on a regular schedule or as needed.  Call Jason @ 715-977-1281 for pricing information and other details.

We can also customize a program to meet your specific needs.  This may include problems like: jumping on people, chasing cars, manners around children, ect.  We can put together a program to teach any single item or list of items that may need to be addressed to improve your dog as a companion. 




You are encouraged to come out and see your dog every 2-3 weeks during training.  As you visit, you will be able to see your dog’s progress first hand.  We will demonstrate your dog to you in a way that you understand the training we are doing and how to handle your dog for yourself.  At certain stages of the training we will have you work with your dog under our guidance.  This is to help you and your dog become more comfortable working together.  We are always available to answer any questions you have after you bring your dog home or help with any future training needs you may have.  

You are welcome to visit Good Go Ing to meet us and see the operation in person.  CONTACT US for an appointment or additional information.  Click here for training RATES AND REQUIRMENTS, Check out the Retrieving Breed Program & Pointing Breed Program
