Are you stressed because your dog doesn’t listen to you? We understand how you feel.
Help is here, right now, for you.
We currently have a new trainer, Alyssa Walker (soon to be Giles), that is awesome and is happy to help you get your dog to listen now.
Alyssa Walker and I have been friends for over ten years. I have wanted her to partner with Four Legged Scholars – Dog Training – Salt Lake City for quite some time.
Alyssa has wanted too as well. Things weren’t aligning and finally alignment happened. Alyssa is now a training partner with us.
Alyssa has much experience with dog training and behavior. She graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelors in Psychology in 2008.
Her main focus was on how animals learned and she studied much about animal psychology. At this time, animal behavior became her passion.
Of course knowing this helps so much with dog training. Salt Lake City owners will be grateful to have a trainer that is so knowledgeable and helpful.
As a result, she started her own dog training business in 2008. She helped many owners to get their dogs to listen.
She worked on training dogs to settle, walk nicely on leash, to become more confident (less fearful), to be a happier around people / dogs (less aggressive or fearful).
She also began volunteering at the Cache Humane Society. Then she was hired as an office manager for 3 years from 2010-2013. Here she did the following:
1) Worked with the staff on shelter protocols for training and enrichment.
2) Developed educational materials for pet owners on behavior and dog training. Salt Lake City will now benefit from this knowledge.
3) Taught DoggoneSafe’s Be A Tree bite prevention program at the humane society’s kids’ camp.
4) Fostered a number of animals, including a German Shepherd and a Coydog (coyote/dog hybrid).
5) Helped clients choose the right dog for their situation and family life.
Once Alyssa had her daughter she took a break from dog training. However, her passion never left. When she found out that I had an available spot for a trainer she jumped on it.
Alyssa is determined, passionate, kind-hearted and knowledgeable. I have every confidence that she can help you with your dog.
Currently, she is working with a Libby, a german shepherd, that is fearful around other dogs and humans.
Alyssa is helping Libby to become more confident and calm through dog training. Salt Lake City is lucky to have Alyssa back into the dog training business.
Welcome aboard Alyssa Walker. We are blessed to have such awesome trainers that can help you at Four Legged Scholars – Dog Training – Salt Lake City.
