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

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, He does a special chiropractic technique that is nonforce. It is called DNFT. Little did I know I was in a for a life change.

I went into my appointment and Jarrad immediately began talking about focusing on what we want in life instead of what I don’t want. He asked me what I wanted to have more in my life. I said I wanted more safe, peace and collaboration with my family. I stated that when I strayed away from this, I felt tightness in my neck and shoulders.

He said he learned a new technique called Reorganizational Healing. This focused on what was right in my body instead of what was wrong. He mentioned that this is what Tony Robbins does and it creates endless possibilities. What a profound idea!

Many times when we go to a chiropractor, we are focusing on what is wrong. Chiropractors find where the spine is out of alignment and jerk it back into place. Many dog trainers do the same. They focus on what is wrong and punish dogs for bad behavior.

At Four Legged Scholars LLC Dog Training, Salt Lake City we do things differently and focus on what is right. We want you to feel more peace in your life with your dog.

What about a new and profound perspective? Instead, focus on what is in alignment within my body. Once Jarrad worked on my spine, he shifted to Reorganizational Healing.

He touched a part of my body, and he asked me if I could feel the relaxation in these muscles? At first it felt alien. I wasn’t used to focusing on the parts of my body that were relaxed and felt good. Then I decided to soak it in.

He transferred this feeling to other parts of my body, and I began to feel more open in my neck and shoulders. It was amazing! I felt so free.

The best part is the feeling in my neck and shoulders has stayed with me, and it has been weeks later. To top it off when I returned to Ohio everything was peaceful with my parents. I am focusing on what we have in common and what is working. We are at peace with each other and are having fun again!

So what does this have to do with dog training? Everything in your life is related. It is time to focus on what is “right” with your dog. Give your dog rewards for good obedient behavior. You won’t regret it, and it will change your perspective about your dog.

Perspective is everything. It affects your emotions and your actions. You will feel much more peace and happiness with your dog. As a result, your body will feel more at ease, and it will be easier for you to reward your dog for the behavior that you like. As a result, your dog will perform obedient behavior more often.

Focusing on what is wrong limits you. Punishing your dog for bad behavior creates stress for both your dog and yourself. You will both become stressed because you are constantly focusing on what is wrong. This doesn’t work well with dog training. Salt Lake City has many dog owners that I have worked with that have chosen to change their perspective.

It is time for you to have a new perspective too. A perspective that will create amazing shifts between you and your dog. You deserve a piece of mind. Start now!

Namaste!

I recently met with Johanna for help with my rambunctious teenager, Roger. We worked on coming when called, leash walking, and staying calm around other dogs when on leash. After two sessions, Roger made huge improvements, and he continues to improve as we practice on our own. Johanna really understands dogs and is very good at communicating with people. She knows how to make dog training fun. I've worked with other trainers, and Johanna is by far the best.

I have known Johanna for 13 years. She has helped me with several dogs, but she recently helped me train my new black lab puppy, Raven. I have moved to another state so all of my training with Raven was done online via Zoom. I believe that the one-on-one training I received through Zoom was more personalized and thorough, especially with the way Johanna placed every ounce of training and recommendation on a board through an app that I can refer back when I need. Johanna is very intuitive and knew when stress was on overload for me, therefore tailoring my training for that day around making Raven feel good while simultaneously taking my stress load down. Johanna has years of experience and while her knowledge is a gold mine, it is her gentle patience and love for her clients that make this training so perfect. I would hire her again and again. She is a true canine whisperer. Thank you Four Legged Scholars and thank you Johanna!Wendy N. ~ Oregon

Johanna at Four Legged Scholars is great. She tailored my program to fit my needs and was easy to work with. My puppy responded very well to what she taught us together over Zoom. She's patient and understanding. We're still utilizing the things we learned and he's a well-behaved puppy. Thank you!

I adopted Frida as a companion that I could travel, walk and hike with. She loves to hike and walk but pulled on the leash and jumped at distractions. I learned how to be calm and talk in a non threatening way to her. She responds to this much better than yelling at her. The click and treat method that I learned works so well in getting her attention as well as the "target" training. Frida has improved greatly with these methods. I will continue the knowledge I have learned with her. I did the live on-line training and it was very successful. I am so happy we signed up.

My dog was abused in his previous home and has always been afraid of strangers. I wanted to train him and help him to be more confident, but I didn't know how to do that if he was afraid of his trainer.Doing online training with Joanna was perfect for both of us! Joanna helped me learn how to read my dog and understand his triggers. We then worked together on BAT training, which taught him self-soothing behaviors and showed him how to confidently and safely handle difficult situations. I never thought I would have fun doing homework with my dog, but he and I benefited from it tremendously. Working with Joanna via Zoom was perfect for my dog and me.

My 2 year old doodle was struggling with people walking by the house, barking incessantly, tugging on walks, improving recall when off leash and , for me, how to be a better more engaging human for my buddy. The personalized, online sessions exceeded all my expectations. The review of video homework sessions was awesome. We saw improvement in each of the priority areas and I developed real, tangible, lasting skills/tools to be a better pet person. Thanks Johanna!

12 years ago I got a puppy and quickly realized I was in over my head. I wanted to have a good, well trained dog, but I was overwhelmed by methods and my puppies behavior.I joined the four legged scholars puppy training with my little 4 month old puppy Bowie, and saw immediate understanding with the clicker work. It gave us this incredibly ability to communicate and she excelled.We went on to take several courses that established general obedience, helped me turn a STRONG leash puller into a loose leash master (I took that course twice because it was a huge issue for us and I NEEDED help and reassurance from Johanna that I could do it) as well as skill class, that helped solidify a beautiful relationship between us. Learning clicker shaping allowed me to confidently teach complex and unique commands on my own as well, like waving hello and closing kitchen cabinets.My Bowie has climbed to the top of mountains for me staying right by my side never pulling on her leash. I've targeted her off trails to protect her from startling a mama moose and her baby. She's loved on my kids without jumping on them and knocking them over. She's allowed the neighbor girl who has always had a fear of dogs to walk her without pulling at whatever pace she was comfortable with. She shows off with all her fun little tricks Johanna gave me the tools to train my dog into an amazing companion.I feel so lucky to have found your training program and to have the relationship I do with my Bowie girl. These courses have a profound and lasting impact on the lives of families and their pups, thank you for that gift.

I am so grateful to have found Johanna. She was with us every step of the way as we tackled separation anxiety training and reactivity training with Daisy, my Mini Australian Shepherd. As a first time dog owner, I felt at a loss about how to manage my very vocal, scared, stressed, yet loveable dog. She had all of the typical puppy behavior, such as jumping, nipping/biting, leash pulling, as well as barking. On top of that, she was also not able to be alone without feeling terrified, as well as vocally and behaviorally reactive to other dogs, adults, and kids. I felt completely overwhelmed and Johanna created programs that felt manageable and doable. Each training session, I felt understood and empowered working with Johanna. Over the course of our programs, I felt that we accomplished the steps of the training process, strengthened the dog-human relationship, and increased my own awareness of my dog's emotional cues so that I could better work with her. My dog can now be on her own feeling relaxed and playful, her problematic puppy behaviors have significantly improved, she can walk on her leash loosely, listen to commands, and she can better tolerate other adults, dogs, and children as compared to where we first started. Our online experience was very positive. I look forward to continually implementing the tools and skills we have learned along the way to move forward in a positive direction that strengthens our human-animal bond and reduces distressing behaviors and emotional stress and overwhelm. Thank you Four Legged Scholars! I highly, highly recommend working with Johanna.

Our rescue dog is sweet and playful with us, but her behavior around other dogs and people could be unpredictable. She would act aggressively around adults (lunging and barking), and would sometimes be aggressive toward other dogs. We chose to do online training with Johanna. I was skeptical that online training would work, but it ended up being very effective. Johanna taught me the skills I needed to train my dog, and provided resources that I could use throughout the week as I worked on the assigned tasks. I was also able to send her videos of me working with my dog, so she could provide feedback and help me improve. Johanna personalized the program and made changes as needed to ensure that I could meet my goals. Since working with Four Legged Scholars, neighbors have commented on how much better behaved my dog is, and I don't have to worry about her lunging and barking at people or other dogs when we are out for a walk anymore. We still have a lot of work to do with our dog, and I feel like doing the personalized online sessions with Johanna has given me the knowledge, and resources to continue training my dog.

We have a large family, including three big dogs. So when our biggest dog Obi, the Rottweiler, started showing aggression we panicked. The vet suggested we put him down after an experience in the office. He then said we could also try training and gave us Johanna's business card. Just a phone call with her made us feel like there was hope. We signed up to do the online sessions with FourLeggedScholars. The process from the first contact to the last was well oiled and very helpful. Obi gets to stay with our family now and we feel like meting with her has given us the guidance and knowledge we need to keep our family, friends and him safe. I was a tad worried about doing the training online, but it really worked out great and we were able to fit such a big task into our busy schedules. I feel like she set us up for success from the very beginning. Thank you.
