YORK-Two women have opened a new dog training company in Yorktown.

Owners Katie Eaton and Morgan Strack began offering classes at The Good Dog on Production Drive in Yorktown in January.

The Good Dog offers a variety of training classes from puppy training and basic obedience to advanced obedience and “fun classes like trick training, agility, and nosework,” Eaton said.

“It’s important to us that people have lots of outlets for their dog’s energy as well as many opportunities to grow their bond through fun training,” she added.

A dozen classes are offered that cater to any dog’s needs and are held in a spacious climate-controlled warehouse. The Good Dog also has a retail store that sells training equipment and other items.

“It’s extremely rewarding to take an insecure dog or a nervous dog and give them structure and teach them how to be comfortable and confident in themselves and in their relationship with their owner,” Eaton said.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
