One to one training, group classes and walking
Good Dog was established in 2006 by Andrea Rabin to help owners understand why their dog behaves as he does and how to train and improve their dog’s behaviour using positive reinforcement methods.
Andrea trained with the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour (ADTB) and is an ADTB Approved Instructor. She regularly attends courses and seminars by various trainers to keep her training up to date.
She is passionate about helping pet dog owners improve their relationship with their dogs and helps you to train your dog in your own home and at her group classes.
Andrea has had dogs all her life, ranging from a German Shepherd, Dobermans, Golden Retrievers, a Springer Spaniel, a Labrador to various cross-breeds.
Andrea offers group puppy classes, Bronze, Silver and Gold classes as well as One to One training.
With the help of her husband Michael, Andrea also provides a dog walking service. There is currently limited availability for dog walking in the Bexley/Sidcup/Chislehurst areas. We walk mainly at Foots Cray Meadows.
If you’re interested in training please call Andrea on 07809 828180 for walking call Michael on 07809 762775
Me and Bella have really enjoyed Andrea’s classes and would highly recommend them. Andrea also gave lots of advice to help with Bella’s anxiety with the car. She also allowed my daughter to take Bella through her assessment today and passed and my daughter loved that. Thank you Maria and Bella x More...
Andrea is quite simply the ‘Dog Whisperer’ her natural affinity with dogs is clear to see and she inspires confidence in both 4 legged and 2 legged customers
Just finished a six week training course with Andrea for my terrier. We passed our bronze and silver test and we have both really enjoyed the training. Andrea is very calm and so knowledgeable. It’s been great fun for us both More...

Highly recommend to any ones who needs hep? More...
Andrea was really good with our dog Lolly who we re-homed. Lolly had lots of issues from fear aggression towards other dogs to separation anxiety. Andrea's advice was great and on going although it turned out we needed just as much training as our dog. A big thank you for helping to make Lolly a much calmer happier dog. More...
Andrea has looked after my dog Bella for years, she absolutely loves her and is always very happy to stay. It really is a home from home for her especially now as she's getting old. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andrea services to anyone who needs an honest, trust worthy person to look
After their dogs. More...

Hi Andrea just wanted to thank you so much for your wisdom, help and support. From day one of the training Kenzie and Libby have become a joy to care for. I'm working really hard to stick to what we have learnt. Libby is visibly relieved that she no longer has to protect us and Both are now sleeping in their own beds �We just need a little more confidence when meeting other dogs but with your help we have been going to the park during the day rather than 5am to avoid everyone. I really can't thank you enough and I hope the 3 of us can impress you with our skills and new found confidence when we see you next. Liz x More...
Andrea has done the impossible, after having three trainers my loopy lab Meg was still impossible to take out for a walk. She would flip spin and pull. After every walk I felt like I had just done ten rounds with mike Tyson. After just three sessions with Andrea Meg is now a pleasure to walk and more importantly Meg is living life to the full. Thank you just doesn't seem enough More...
Andrea has done wonders with our daisy who escaped out her harness at 4 months old and run in the road and a car stopped luckily, daisy was petrified of road walks after this and would plant down on the pavement and wouldn’t move and a British bulldog that doesn’t want to move once a adult dog is a hard task to move!
Andrea guided me to taking the right steps into giving daisy back confidence on the pavements again and she is one happy furry lady now! Daisy has learnt to love life outside again that it’s not all scary thankyou so much! So helpful and knowledgable! Wouldn’t think twice about recommending Andrea.

Andrea was outstanding! I called in a moment of need as our toy fox terrier was struggling with our newborn. I called a number of places but she was the only one who was reassuring and took the time to give advice on the phone to help us. Thanks so much and will be in touch in the future!! More...
Andrea was amazing and helped us with our 4 month old Westie puppy Max, who was extremely naughty, hyperactive and disobedient. After previously owning a Westie and him passing away 4 years ago, we finally decided to get another dog and thought another westie would be the perfect choice as we knew the breed so well, especially with two young children it was so important that we knew what to except!!! Unfortunately Max was completely different to what our old Westie was like and we were shocked with the difference in behaviour when we got Max. Max barked uncontrollably and would constantly bite our feet and want our attention. That’s when we got in touch with good dog. After Andrea came to see Max, only after her second visit and following all her advice, Max was like a completely different dog and I can not believe the change in him. I’ve had dogs all my life and thought I would never need a trainer to help me but Max was not what I expected and thanks to Andrea he now follows our instructions and is the loveliest affectionate dog and although we have trained him hard it’s not taken away his lovely character and personality. Couldn’t recommend good dog enough More...
