Private Online Dog Training Client Success Story

 

Literally magical to train with them! Our Mattis and Echo are now thriving and we have learned so many skills. What were BIG concerns are now no longer a challenge. This method works!!!!

My pup and I love all we have learned from online one-on-one training sessions!

Amy May (Pit Bull Mix) – Salt Lake City Dog Training 

I just finished a live personalized online one-on-one training course with my dog, and it was really great. I was given the tools I needed to help me dog with the problems he was having and the ones he may encounter in the future. I highly recommend FLS to anyone looking to get dog training during quarantine or beyond.

Christopher McKee (Poodle/ English Shepherd) – Millcreek Dog Training

Johanna walking SeikiI just finished the online dream dog program with Johanna and I couldn’t be happier with the results. During this program we did personalized online live sessions. This allowed me to train my dog in the comfort of my own home and to create a program that is completely unique and custom. I was truly shocked at how much progress I was able to make with Milly, with the tools that I was given. I brought Milly to visit my family about halfway into our sessions and they were absolutely blown away.
I’d recommend this to anybody and everybody that needs help with their dog. Trust me, with the problems that Milly had, you and your dog WILL benefit greatly from this.

Camden Varley-Harris (Border Collie) – Dog Training in Salt Lake City

Gracie has become the best dog – she’s a joy to have around and easy to live with. Johanna taught us how to understand her needs and “listen” to her. Taking the class online was a big advantage. I got to apply what I was learning as I trained Gracie. Johanna knows her dogs!

Deborah Felt (Border collie/poodle) – Salt Lake City Obedience Training

Our dog, Dolly, was very excitable inside the house and on walks. During our live personalized one-on-one training with Johanna, we learned a lot about how dogs think. Understanding Dolly’s emotions made the training process so much easier because Johanna helped us identify Dolly’s feelings and train her at the right level every step of the way. I highly recommend Four Legged Scholars because the value doesn’t end after your live sessions. Johanna provides a very thorough program. You will feel empowered to continue training your dog and know how to in the best way!

Camille Bagnani (Pit Bull Terrier) – Obedience Training in Salt Lake City

My kids and I recently completed our live personalized online one-on-one dog training sessions with Four Legged Scholars. In a short amount of time and after dedicated work, Ollie has reached the goals we set out to achieve with the guidance of Four Legged Scholars. Thank you!

Eric Corbin (Australian Shepherd) – Obedience Training in Cottonwood Heights

The lessons were broken down into manageable tasks and the positive feedback from videos that we made during the week were very helpful. We really enjoyed our sessions.

Kelly Doll (Pug) – Midvale Dog Training

We started live personalized online one-on-one dog training when they were 8 weeks old to teach them basic manners and commands. The experience was wonderful. I learned how well positive reinforcement works. My puppies quickly learned the basics and I learned how to continue to work with them into the future!

Tara Gunther (Cavapoo) – Holladay, Utah Puppy Training

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!

Shawn McMillen with Broc (Shepadoodle) – Training was done Salt Lake City and in Oregon when he traveled.

“Johanna worked with us one on one to make sure we were absorbing what she was teaching us in order to accomplish the goals we had set for training. She is a great and patient teacher, demonstrating and working through each of the steps necessary repetitiously until she was comfortable seeing that we were making progress.”

Peggy Blackman with Jack (Shi-Tzu)

“The information has been invaluable. We have been able to apply it at home, at the park, and different public places.”

Christopher Sklute and Adam Renstrom with Zoe (Anatolian Shepherd / Akbash Mix)

Johanna walking Seiki

Private Online Aggression Training In Any Location Including Salt Lake City & Ogden:

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. 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.

Emily Harward (Shepherd Mix) – Aggressive Dog Training in Salt Lake City

The live personalized online one-on-one was great for us because it gave us the opportunity to work with our trainer Johanna without the stress of planning around our busy lives. The online platform was great because we would video tape our training and then Johanna would meet with us over Zoom to go over our progress. We could see our strengths and weaknesses rather than getting feedback during an in-person class where there are so many moving parts.

 Ryan Quinn (Labrador Retriever) – Cottonwood Heights Online Dog Training

We did live personalized online one-on-one training sessions with Johanna, and she helped us recognize Wick’s body language and taught us techniques to counter-condition her in situations that make her scared. Johanna was great to work with! We’re now much more confident realizing when Wick is scared and how to handle it.

Tyler Drzycimski (Border Collie Mix)

“Johanna helped give me the tools to work with my aggressive little yorkie (that thought he was a rottweiler). I will always keep one eye on him but I now know what Luigi is capable of and what we learned will stay with us. You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!”

Sharon Maglietti with Luigi (Yorkshire Terrier)

“She has been a real lifesaver! She has come to my home so patiently, week after week, trying to get me to learn the behaviors that I need to live happily with Silly Billy and Gus. She has been extremely prompt, professional and knowledgeable. She encourages me when I get discouraged, is optimistic when I feel down, and has generally become a real friend.”

Paula Carl with Silly Billy (Pointer Mix) and Princess Gus (Border Collie)

Johanna walking Seiki“As I was learning to train Sammy, there were times I felt lost and hesitant. Johanna easily noticed this hesitancy and helped shift my energy so that Sammy and my energy field’s were in alignment. I noticed when my attitude and my emotions were playful, I was able to manifest a faster response with Sammy’s behavior.”

Phillip Blevins with Sammy (Pit Bull)

“The biggest thing for me was the difference in our walks.  I am more comfortable and I see that he is happier.  It is amazing the shift that was created in just 10 weeks of training.” Then just two weeks after our last session: “He seems to be doing a lot better, especially on his walks which makes me very happy.  He is finally letting my dad hold him so that makes both of them very happy!  And my sister Stefanie even took him into a store the other day and he did not bark at any strangers and let a woman come up to him and pet him!  I am truly amazed with the little guy.  He also is getting more comfortable with strangers in fewer visits which I am really stoked about! We are still working on getting him more comfortable with strangers and dogs on our walks, and we are still working on the commands.  He is barking less at the window now which I love 🙂  Thanks for everything Johanna you are amazing!”

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.
