What makes our dog boarding & daycare so different?

If the name did not indicate it to you already, let us explain why our doggy daycare is kind of weird compared to other dog daycare companies in Salt Lake City, Utah.

  • 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:

  • Even the most difficult dogs can become amazing family members with the right help.
  • 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!

Ryan Gwilliam

People often ask me, “how did you get started working with dogs?”. To which I answer, “I got a dog”. And that’s the truth, I got a Pit Bull puppy on a whim, and I had no idea how to raise him.

I started watching dog training shows on tv, going to dog training workshops, reading dog related books and scientific studies and buying every dog training dvd I could get my hands on. Thanks to all my studying and hard work with my own dog, my friends and family soon took notice of my passion and ability with dogs.


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.
