All dogs and their humans are individuals. We approach each dog training client with a focus on teaching you to to communicate with your dog. Libby, owner and trainer, is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-KA. We use positive reinforcement abundantly. We also use a variety of dog training tools to support your dog's lesson plan, but always with attention to what your dog responds to, and your handling abilities. Superhero Dog Academy subscribes to the LIMA training philosophy: Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive. NO E-collars! NO pinch collars or slip leads! NO boo-boos! You have a critical role in your dog's learning process. We can't train your dog without you. We can train YOU how to be a dog trainer through communication to unlock the Superhero inside your dog!
Since we believe learning is an individual process, we focus on One-on-One dog training that guides you through your dog's Individual Education Plan. You are a critical factor to the success of your Superhero, so we want you to have our undivided attention. Instead of group classes, we conduct dog training sessions in a variety of locations in Salt Lake City, Utah, such as your home, parks and other dog-friendly businesses. Training in the real-life environments that your dog will experience is far superior to training in a classroom.
We offer a full immersion "board and train" dog training program in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are one of very few board and train dog training programs in Salt Lake using only positive reinforcement without E-Collars! Your dog stays with us in our home so we can begin changing their behaviors. We can work on crate training, general obedience, and dog behavior issues like barking, leash reactivity, resource guarding and aggression. We accept puppies beginning at 8 weeks for crate training, potty training, socialization, and beginning obedience in our puppy-proof home. All Board and Train programs include a detailed go-home training plan and 30min session for you to continue what your dog has learned when you are back at home.
WE DO NOT USE E-COLLARS, PINCH COLLARS, CHOKE CHAINS OR SLIP LEADS IN OUR BOARD AND TRAIN PROGRAM

Right Dog: Humans need not just any Superhero, but the right Superhero. Your personality and lifestyle matters to your dog. There is always a cute face to be found, but the breed that makes you say "Daawwww" may not be your Superhero.
We will help you find just a Super dog, whether puppy or senior, mutt or pedigree. Then, we create a unique transition and education plan for you and your Superhero Dog.
Yup, this puppy is training to leave that big pile of treats!
