New Dog Training Company Opens in Yorktown

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.
