Our Services


Puppy Training

Every puppy needs to learn the ropes, so to speak, when it comes to good habits, where to go to the bathroom, and how to interact with other dogs. At Train Walk Poop, we can handle all of this and more. We even have boot camps designed just for puppies.


Dog Training

Dog training programs like ours in Salt Lake City focus on teaching your dog the skills he needs for more trust and confidence. With these abilities, you’ll have a proud companion who can handle any situation confidently!

enjoy your dog

Enjoy a well behaved dog who understands what you need, and your dog will have an owner who understands their needs too! Your trainer is always available for follow up calls and in person sessions.

we are kind of weird

Here’s what makes us so different:

  • Acceptance of all dogs, even if other facilities have refused them.

  • No interruptions during our social classes because our drop-off and pick-up times are very strict – interruptions and delays can stress out your dog and decrease the potential for fun.

  • No fights at our facility since 2019 because we keep the safety of your pet our number one priority.

  • Small dog to trainer ratio – we give a staff member only 5-15 dogs rather than the industry standard of 20-30.

  • We focus on polite and safe behaviors (such as no excessive barking and not swarming a door or gate) to ensure that every dog has a safer experience than with other trainers.

  • Dogs learn at their own pace without any peer pressure.

What we believe:

  • No dog owner should have to choose between their dog’s well-being and their own.
  • Your dog is not broken, too old, too young or beyond help. We’ve seen it all and we’ve helped them all.
  • You are the perfect trainer for your dog, you just hadn’t found the right mentor yet. But now you’ve found us, and we’ll reach your dog training goals together!

What We Believe

"You should never have to choose between your dog's well-being and your own."

To keep you & your dog safe

From wasting your time on the wrong things and bad advice. Choose an effective training system to experience the joy and companionship you both deserve.

Ryan Gwilliam

I landed my very first paid dog training customer from an ad on craigslist (remember that website?). I was amazed that anyone took me up on my offer for a 2 hour in-home training session because I had very little experience.

The first family I helped had a hyper English Mastiff named Aiden. He was terrorizing the entire house with all 200 lbs of enthusiasm he could muster. I remember leaving that session with my fingers crossed hoping they wouldn’t ask for their money back…

Lorie Mair

Lorie has had dogs her entire life. Something about their happy, playful nature and noble hearts has always made her love dogs. In December of 2014, Lorie was looking for a new challenge when she saw an opening with Train Walk Poop. She applied, and her search blossomed into a new passion. She loves what she does, and has a lot of fun with it. Her dependability shows, as she can be counted on to always do a great job.
