Private Dog Training Lessons

My approach to dog training is guided by the science of animal behavior and learning, which helps build a positive relationship between you and your dog that is based upon mutual trust and respect. I primarily use positive reinforcement training, and focus on the individual welfare of your pet. I do not use or advocate the use of aversive methods inc. pinch, prong, or shock collars (e-collars), or dominance/pack theory approaches that have little scientific merit.  For more information please read thedominance and punishment position statements from the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB).

I offer private dog training lessons in Salt Lake City, Park City and Utah Valley. Training lessons are individually designed for your dog and give clients the flexibility to train where and when they want. Private training lessons provide clients with the necessary skills and techniques to enjoy life to the max with their dog.
