Madelyn Dueñez

K9 Trainer

Madelyn Dueñez is an experienced-year-old balanced k9 trainer. Madelyn specializes in puppy obedience, agility, pack socialization and behavior modification. Additionally, Madelyn welcomes dogs with a bite history or intense fear-based aggression.

As a child, her love for animals came quickly. She got her start volunteering at the Houston SPCA and a local horse ranch in her teen years. Consequently, this had Madelyn starting her training career with loads of enthusiasm.

She began through PETCO as an associate and worked my way up to lead trainer in less than a year. Since then, she has learned different training styles and so much more! All the knowledge she learned is available to her clients and she approaches everything through the Good Vibes Mantra of Coaching, Communication, and Caregiving. She hopes to bring confidence to dogs and humans alike.

Erika Whitney

Board and Train Coordinator

Erika Whitney has worked with Good Vibes Dog Training since day one. Her patience and attention detail has been key to our success in making dogs feel confident and part of the pack in our board and train program.

Erika, a Houston Native since 2014 has been a comfort to many dogs that have crossed the Good Vibes threshold. She manages temperaments of all kinds and gives the best booty scratches.

She has been a dog owner of two black labradors Calvin and Zooey for over a decade! Their favorite activities are bones, sunbathing and hogging the couch. 

Erika will make your pup feel right at home.
