Good Dog in a box is a dog products company with it’s roots in positive reinforcement dog training. We’re a little bit old school mail order, a little bit high tech e-learning, a dash of fun and games, and a pinch of puppy love. We believe happy families with happy dogs means less dogs surrendered to animal shelters. Together, we can make a difference.

Together we can reach and teach the next generation of dog owner.

Our mission is to help you as a dog professional or humane education teacher channel your passion and knowledge to create more impact in the world. We want to see you take your business skills to a new level, allowing you to earn more, while you share your message. Together we can make a difference.

Mama June Bug Jones

aka "Buggy" - Cat

A reformed “cat about the town,” Mamma June Bug Jones spends most of her time wondering why the name of this company has “dog” and not “cat” in it. Buggy tests all packaging with her son, Mister Kitten Britches (aka Mister), for sturdiness. She’s a vocal advocate of spaying and neutering.
