Johanna Teresi with Four Legged Scholars, Dog Training, Salt Lake City and Seiki

Four Legged Scholars LLC – Salt Lake City – Dog Training Michelle, a Salt Lake City dog training client, came to us with a very fearful border collie, Teddy.

So far there had been no serious bites, but the lunging and nipping was definitely a bit scary. Michelle really wanted to feel confident that Teddy could control his anxiety more and that she could feel at peace with him around other people. As a result, Michelle consulted with us and chose to do nine private sessions program over Skype. We met weekly online, and I demonstrated the commands that […]

Four Legged Scholars LLC, Dog Training – Salt Lake City Stella, my border collie and I went for our weekly hike to tanner park in Salt Lake City. We felt that familiar cool breeze. Winter is coming. This is my first winter in Salt Lake City. I moved from Las Vegas. I learned fast where to walk and where to not walk with my dog. Despite dog training, Salt Lake City has some pretty icy areas that are dangerous to walk with any well-trained dog. I do not enjoy the cold and ice. I know I am not alone with this thought. When you have a dog, they need exercise. So what can you do to entertain them? If you don’t, active dogs will trash your home, despite dog training. Salt […]

The Top Dog Training Myths – Dog Training – Salt Lake City

Red Heeler - Dog Training- Salt Lake City - How to train a fearful dog

Ultimately you are struggling at getting your dog to listen and you want your dog to listen to you. Through my many years of Salt Lake City dog training, I have learned some common myths that can block peace of mind between you and your dog. Learn about these myths so that your dog will reliably listen to you. 1.) My dog will become dependent on the clicker. Many of our clients resist using the clicker before they meet us because they think they will have to use it forever. A clicker is just a training tool when you are teaching your dog a new behavior. Once your dog is obedient you will no longer need to use the clicker. 2.) Reward-based dog training only works for certain dogs and […]
