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 […]

OMG I totally know the feeling. Your heart drops because your dog ran off and you know he isn’t going to come back. You imagine having to run off after your dog to catch him.

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 […]


Are You Constantly Focused on Your Dog’s Bad Behavior and Is Your Dog’s Bad Behavior Driving You Nuts? – Salt Lake City – Dog Training

Johanna Teresi and Jarrad Haslam - Dog Training - Salt Lake City

A few weeks ago, I got into a huge fight with my parents. My shoulders and neck tighten in pain. I felt I was no longer safe in the arms of my family. Everything seemed unpredictable and I had no idea what was going to happen next. Were we going to forgive each other or was more fighting going to continue? More pain grew in my chest. My chest ached with grief. All happy possibilities seem to end. I took Iris to visit her dad in Utah. I stayed in Utah for two weeks near Salt Lake City. Dog Training of course is how I spent my time with my clients. I also decided to work on healing myself. I set up an appointment with Jarrad Haslam at A New Direction, […]
