Join our Facebook Groups!

Come join us in our “Student Only” group! The focus will be discussing dog training and the methodology posted by Kathy Santo and her Kathy Santo Dog Training Team. We’ll be doing daily and weekly dog training challenges, posting our videos to show you cool training ideas, and we’re ALWAYS here for you to answer whatever questions you may have!

This group is for those who are not students at our school in NJ. It’s the place where we share our awesome training ideas and strategies with dog owners who love their dogs, but would like a little more control (and a lot less chaos!) over them. We’d love you to join us!


Good Dog! Online Dog Training Course

We’re so excited to announce that Kathy’s online training program Good Dog! (for puppy and beginner level dog) is launching to the world!

The official opening date will be April 30th and will close May 4th.

Share this with your friends and family so that they’ll have access to the same program that thousands of dog owners have used to achieve their dog training goals!

This launch is for non students only, but we’ll have a special discounted launch for all students in the school! Sign up for the waitlist here
