At Really Good Pets LLC, we offer In-Home Training, Private and Group Classes at our location in Norman on Indian Hills road and Porter/Sunnylane. We specialize in the positive reinforcement methods and excel in communicating to humans. When we teach in-home sessions the curriculum is NO different than a group class. The only difference is that your dog is in its natural environment and the Trainer can at times see more of the destructive behavior.
Rest assured that Really Good Pets and the dog trainers are knowledgeable, ethical, kind, and friendly. We are here to make your life less stressful. We are members of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Really Good Pets Dog Trainers are registered C.L.A.S.S. Instructors and can guide you through the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. levels of training. We also offer American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen (AKC CGC) classes for those that wish to do therapy dog training.
We love dogs and enjoy seeing when that special bond between you and your dog clicks. Sometimes all it takes is just a few tweaks here and there for you to get the solution you need. We can’t wait to meet your dog!
Come see us at our new location! From Norman, go north on Porter till you just cross over Indian Hills intersection. On the left, a few feet north on Sunnylane, there will be a small road called Opportunity Drive. Turn left there and we are on the left side. Number 198. We also have a large Really Good Pets sign above our door. Coming from Moore, go south on Sunnylane, just shy of Indian Hills road, on the right will be Opportunity Drive. Turn right and we are on the left, number 198.
Parking: You may park on the gravel parking lot area where it states “No Parking Any Time”. Be sure to put something red on your dashboard. Yes…literally anything red on the dashboard. This will keep you from being towed in the event there is a large sporting event.
