Stop Bad Behavior – Salt Lake City – Dog Training

Johanna Teresi performing dog training with Seiki.

Dogs learn best when we tell them what to do rather than just reprimanding or saying “no.” A simple analogy of this is to think about when you are learning something new if someone says “no” you have no idea what they want you to do instead.

Salt Lake City has many of clients of mine that have wanted to teach their dogs to understand the word “no.” I always tell them what I stated above. So […]
