Rebecca Shreiar - Dog Training - Salt Lake City - Chihuahua

Four Legged Scholars LLC – Dog Training – Salt Lake City This week we have two small guests in our home. They needed a place to stay. The dogs’ owner, Angie, is best friend’s with Johanna, the owner of Four Legged Scholars, Dog Training, Salt Lake City. Angie had a mold infestation in her home and has been staying in a hotel with her human kids. She is planning on moving to a new apartment soon. She is single mom and was not able to have her dogs stay with her at the hotel. Johanna reached out and I saw that Angie needed help. I jumped in and Angie’s two dogs Karma and Princess are staying with me for a few days.  It’s scary to have to leave them behind especially […]

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 […]

Help! My Dog Won’t Stay and it is Driving Me Crazy! – Salt Lake City – Dog Training

We understand how frustrating it is when your dog just runs around and won’t “stay.” It drives you crazy. You want to feel more control and peace of mind. We get it. We helped Stacey and Brett with their dog training. Salt Lake City is where they live. We worked on stay so that they could feel more peace at dinnertime. Shelly, their dog, wanted to join her owners for dinner in the kitchen. Stacey and Brett did not want Shelly to join them at dinnertime. They wanted her to stay out of the kitchen peacefully. We began by teaching Shelly a simple stay while they walked away from her. Then we progressed to having your her stay as the owners walked away and sat in their kitchen chairs. From […]

Are You Feeling Stressed By Your Dog’s Bossy Table Manners? Success Story – Dog Training – Salt Lake City

Recently, we trained Rigi, a German Short-Haired Pointer owned by Scott Cornwall. Scott came to us with a super hyper active puppy. A cute pup but he didn’t know any of the basics. Rigi basically knew how to call of the shots and was having a blast. He pulled on the leash and jumped like crazy. I really enjoyed training with Scott and Rigi. Scott was very dedicated and committed so he received amazing results and peace of mind quickly. We did sessions on online through Skype and in-person. In the video below we are training Rigi “leave it” which he learned really well.  He shifted from being a super grabby dog to a more patient dog. Scott was very consistent with his dog training. Salt Lake City is where […]


The Biggest Mistakes People Make When Training Their Dogs – Dog Training – Salt Lake City

Border Collie - Dog Training - Salt Lake City

We wanted to let the secret out and let you know the biggest mistakes that most people make during dog training. Salt Lake City is full of awesome clients of ours that have applied the concepts below with great success. We want you to also know these concepts. Here are the most common mistakes that people make when training their dogs. 1.) They are not consistent. They reward their dogs for pulling on the leash sometimes and not other times. The dog gets confused and doesn’t know when he is allowed to pull on the leash and when he is not. Your dog will do better with obedience if you are consistent with your rules. 2.) They expect fast results without putting in the effort or time.  Training takes practice […]


Help! My Dog Rules the Walk! – Dog Training – Salt Lake City

Liberty Park, Salt Lake City dog training with Johanna Teresi

Do you feel frustrated because your dog pulls like crazy and rules your walks? Do you feel that you don’t have any control on what your dog does on walks? Let’s create peace on your leash walks now. Remember you make the rules with your dog by doing dog training. Salt Lake City has many places that can be distracting and difficult for peaceful leash walks. So let’s start now. The first step is to make the walks easy for you and your dog. Start with loose leash walking in your home. Then graduate to harder environments as your dog is ready. What you reward will increase in frequency, so if you keep walking forward when your dog is pulling on the leash you are rewarding the pulling. Instead, walk forward […]


Are you worried about your dog eating human food? – Dog Training – Salt Lake City

Intermediate Dog Training, Salt Lake City

Are you worried that feeding your dog human food will cause him to beg at the dinner table? Are you stressed about your partner giving table scraps to your dog and you disapprove? The good news is that most human food will not harm your dog and is actually healthy for your dog. Some dogs actually do better with obedience training when they are given human food because it can be more motivating to them. Giving your dog human food will not cause him to beg. The behavior your dog is doing when eats the food is actually what your dog will perform more frequently. If you give your dog human food when your dog is calm, then, you are training your dog to be more calm. So in short […]
