AKC GoodDog! Helpline

AKC GoodDog! Helpline

The AKC GoodDog! Helpline (GDH) is a live telephone subscription service that offers training advice to new puppy owners.

The helpline trainers have been giving helpful advice to new puppy owners for more than four years, and many satisfied owners have learned that good training goes well beyond puppyhood. For the happiest, most well-adjusted dogs, learning never ends, and the AKC helpline is a great value because the one-time cost for a subscription is good for the life of your dog.

The AKC GoodDog! Helpline trainers have many years of experience training dogs — as dog sport and show dog competitors and as family companions. They use positive, reward-based training methods, helping puppy owners with house-training, basic manners, leash walking, and ways to help multiple pets get along with each other.

My dog pulls me down the street every time we go on a walk.

Every time your dog pulls, stop. Do not move until the dog refocuses attention back on you.

Lure them into position beside you with a treat and reward for walking beside you.
