Hi, I'm Suzy and I am a trainer here at Good Boy, LLC.! I've been an animal lover for as long as I can remember and dogs have always held a special place in my heart, but my initial career path didn't involve animals. In my third year attending University for Anthropology, I accepted an employment position at The Cleveland Animal Protective League. The position inspired me so much that I have continued with animal related work ever since.

I gained additional experience at two other humane societies in Northern Ohio; The Toledo Area Humane Society (Intake Staff) and The Friendship Animal Protective League (Animal Care Supervisor). I have also personally fostered and adopted 8 dogs in my adulthood. These opportunities exposed me to dogs of all breeds, sizes, and ages, and across the board in temperment. I have worked to socialize dogs from humane cases and trained ones with behavioral problems such as aggression, anxiety, house soiling, leash pulling, and over-stimulation. My passion and breadth of professional experience will help us to create a unique plan to fit you and your pup's training needs! We can't wait to work with you.

Owner and Lead Trainer

Ever wonder what your dog is thinking? Your dog is probably wondering the same thing about you. Communication is a two way street and the secret to improving your relationship is to learn the language of your pup and to teach them yours. My name is Joseph and I’m a Cleveland native, most of my closest friends would describe me as a dog, that’s my favorite compliment! My business was built ground-up from the passion of helping dogs and their humans overcome barriers and learn to communicate with each other as true companions. 


My mission is to help your dog adapt to your lifestyle by establishing clear, understandable signals. We accomplish this by spending personal time with your dog to learn their triggers and personality to come up with a custom training plan for both owner and pup. No matter where you are in your journey, Good Boy, LLC. is here to help you cultivate the behaviors that will allow you to cultivate good behavior in your dog (or dogs!).
