Our Trainers

 

Lou Goaziou has been raising and training dogs most of his adult life. His deep love and dedication to all things canine has developed over the years through his work with canine rescue organizations. And, he has passed this great affection on to his entire family. Lou will be joined by his son Robbie. 

Prior to entering the field of dog training fulltime  and opening Good CitiZen Dog Training Boise, Lou spent 27 years in law enforcement and corrections, with the last 10 years managing a prison kitchen.

Lou and Robbie provide dog training services in the greater Treasure Valley including Boise, Meridian, Kuna, Garden City, Eagle, and others. Lou and his wife Amy have three daughters, two sons, six rescued dogs — three pitbulls named Piper, Scooby, Gator, a pit mix named Hazel — and two Chihuahuas, Princess and Tug.

Lou and his family can also be found fostering, training, transporting for great organizations like Boise Bully Breed Rescue

Classes

 

Puppy Kindergarten

This is a 6-week class designed to cover the basics of puppy training and care. (Puppies are between 8 weeks and 6 months old). The initial focus of these classes is to provide intensive socializing opportunities and exercises for the puppies to encourage a sense of confidence, and to reduce fear. In addition, during this class we begin basic obedience training, teaching attention and focus, impulse control and a variety of skills, including recall and leash walking. Our Puppy Training Classes are serious fun!

Prepay to reserve your spot, each class is limited to ten dogs for the best training!

Puppy II

This class is designed for older puppies, generally between 6 and 12 months. This is a 6-week class with a greater focus on basic obedience skills, extended impulse control, a better "down/stay" and a longer distance recall. We still have plenty of on and off-leash play and interaction with other dogs and people, but break for play a little less. It is important to continue training and educating your older pup. This is the time to manage fear and aggression and gain greater control, in general, before it becomes a problem.

Advanced Meet & Greet

Advanced Meet & Greet Class is specifically designed for dogs that have difficulty interacting with others and/or elicit inappropriate behavior toward other dogs. Whether they come on with too much enthusiasm or are exhibiting unseemly behaviors, such as, lunging, snapping, barking, growling, or lunging this is a great class for any dog owner. It is also our most popular class. You are not alone; there are a great many dog owners who have this sort of difficulty.

Our Reviews

 

"Amazing progress!"

We've made amazing progress with our rescue dog, Huckleberry. Lou's approach to training focuses on making a profound connection with our dog. At the end of every session, we were armed with the skills, tools and pointed feedback directly relating to the needs of our situation and unique relationship with our pet. His method is about instilling obedience, but coming from the position of love and respect between human and pet. As far as care goes, our dog is our child in a sense. I wouldn't trust anyone else but Good Citizen with our fur baby. They bleed love and compassion for animals in everything they do. On a side note, I've learned that they donate significant time and energy to various rescue projects and animal companion initiatives, and I would encourage everyone to get behind and support what they stand for."

"Our two dogs stayed with Lou at Good CitiZEN over the week of Thanksgiving while we were out of town. They were treated like VIP's!! Lou takes care of every dog like it's his own. We will always board our dogs with him Thank you so much Lou!!"

"The best!"

Good CitiZEN is THE BEST.Lou takes such great care of these dogs and is so knowledgeable. We went through puppy k and puppy 2 with our dog Sheba and  she is such a good dog now, we owe it all to do with Lou! She also goes to daycare or "school" as we call it a couple times a week and She Loves It! We love that we can trust sending her somewhere each day knowing nothing bad would ever happen to her and she can hang out with her best doggy friends!"

“Two weeks ago, I bought my 15-week-old shy and unruly GSD puppy in for help! Lou and Robbie were amazing! My puppy warmed up to them immediately! He spent time being socialized with the other puppies at the doggie daycare and has learned to sit, down, and “go into your crate” in a very short time. His good progress has been awesome! Thank you so very much Lou and Robbie for the time you spent working with Hunter!"

"Changed our lives!"

“We took the Advanced Meet and Greet class with our dog Tug and the results were amazing! Tug is very fearful with people. Lou and Robbie had a way with getting and keeping his attention so that Tug (and my husband and I) could learn these new skills that have changed our lives forever.”
