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

What to look for in a R+ Positive reinforcement professional dog training company in Salt Lake City, UT. Positive reinforcement training should be lots of fun for you and your dog!
Obedience commands can be taught to dogs young and old (yes old dogs can learn new tricks!). Puppy training at 8 weeks can make good obedience skills for the life of your dog. Don't wait to start puppy training. Teach a puppy to stop biting. Don't let puppy biting become a fun game. If your puppy is biting, just walk away from them or place them in a safe area like a dog kennel or puppy playpen. Puppy potty training and crate training go together. Make a potty routine. 8 week old puppies should be taken outside to go potty about every hour. After they go potty, puppies can have free play time! When your puppy is all tired out, give them a meal or some yummy treats or chews. Nap time!
Yes we can help with behavior issues!
Separation anxiety training should use desensitization and counterconditioning. Practice leaving in very small time increments. Give your dog enrichment activities to keep them busy while you are gone. Snuffle mats, silicone lick mats, Kongs, bones, chews, treat dispensing balls, or homemade dog puzzles can all stop dog from chewing or destroying the house.
Many dog owners struggle with dog aggression. Reactivity and aggression can look very similar. How can you tell if a dog is aggressive? Schedule a free consult with Superhero Dog Academy to help tell the difference between an excited dog, a fearful dog, and an aggressive dog.
Resource guarding is when a dog has something valuable, like a bowl of dog food, a bone or favorite toy that they are scared will be taken away. Resource guarding is the fear of losing something. Train resource guarding by offering lots of yummy treats while your dog enjoys their favorite item. Good timing is important for resource guarding so be sure to consult with a professional dog trainer.
