Our dog trainers have experience working with a broad range of fear-based issues including:
We typically do not offer a single session. Our price for a one hour, private dog trainer session is $100. We have packages for all budgets. You can see all our pricing upfront at superherodog.com/pricing
It depends on a lot of factors: what kind of training is needed, how much training, your income and budget, etc. Our expectation when we offer sliding scale is a client who is 110% committed to the human learning process. We don’t offer sliding scale for board and train. Schedule a free consult so we can discuss your specific situation.
We do not offer group classes in Salt Lake City at this time, however we will be looking to add them to our services in the future.
We will choose locations based on the skills you are working on with your dog. Sometimes this is your home, our location, a park, dog park, dog-friendly business, etc.
Our dog trainers are based in Salt Lake City, UT. There is no travel fee within 10 miles of the I-15/I-80 interchange. 11-20 miles is $20 trip charge. Add $2/mile above 20 miles. All consultations are held at our location unless there are special circumstances.
Yes! We encourage everyone who interacts with your dog regularly to attend training sessions. We especially love to have junior dog trainers participate. Kids are awesome dog trainers! We also teach children how to behave safely around dogs.
We start training at 8 weeks! We start training Humans before the baby even comes home.
Service Dog training is an exceptionally advanced and specialized skillset. We do not offer full Service Dog training, but we do provide "Pre-Service Training." We are familiar with laws and standards of practice. Several of our trainers have self-trained service dogs.
Yes! Standards for Emotional Service dogs are far lower than those for public access service dogs. An Emotional Support Dog is treated like a pet except for two legal rights: Fair Housing and Airline Access. A landlord cannot deny you housing or charge any pet fees or deposits if you have a referral from your doctor for an ESA. Your ESA can also fly with you. An ESA does not have legal access to public spaces that prohibit pets.
We do not offer a specific class for Canine Good Citizen certification, however, we can absolutely teach all the skills required to prepare you to test. There are many organizations who offer CGC testing for a small fee.
No, our specialty is teaching Humans how to communicate with their Superhero Dog. We mostly work with "rehab dogs": fear, aggression, reactivity, etc. We also focus on getting puppies off to a great start with continued support for their first year of life to prevent behavior issues.

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.
