"Good dog" is usually "hyvä koira" when encouraging a dog, "kiltti koira" is used e.g. when saying "this dog is a good dog, it won't bite", or some other such description.

Thank you for specifying, I was wondering the difference.

It shoud be just "good dog" insted of a good dog

Shouldn't this translate to "kind dog"?

That's the direct translation and also accepted but in English you usually say "good dog" instead.

I don't remember being taught "kiltti"

Maybe it's my ears, maybe my computer, but i hear "kiltti" as (english sounds) "kirsta".

I answered exactly the right answer and it showed I was wrong.
