Embracing My Inner Dog Nerd

I'm a dog nerd through and through

When you bring your dog in for training at our facility in Salt Lake City, you can expect a comprehensive dog boot camp program. Here’s what you can expect. 

Some people choose 1 on 1 sessions and others choose a boarding school program where your dog lives with us. 

Either way, you’ll be leaving your dog with us for 1 to 5 days at a time. During the day my team and I will train your dog on various exercises. When you pick your dog up we’ll teach you what they’ve learned! 

This way you can apply these new skills at home and immediately see the benefits from the moment you walk in the door.

I have dedicated 15 years of my life to creating the ultimate training program. I’ve studied with the best dog trainers out there (Marc Goldberg, Chad Mackin, Heather Beck, Nelson Hodges, Jay Jack, Joel Silverman, and many more).

Here’s the thing, I hate wasting time. I am a junkie for being efficient with everything in my life. 

It’s kind of a problem, I’m too efficient sometimes. 

And although it may drive my wife crazy sometimes, it’s a huge benefit to you. 

Because I’ve filtered some much information and so many training exercises down to the bare essentials for you! You’ll only spend time doing the critical few things that are not optional.  I will get you the best training results in the least amount of time possible.

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. 

The next day they called me and were thanking me for how much I helped them. They were so pleased to finally have some relief from their out of control dog. That’s when I knew I had a future. I had helped someone else inspire change in their dog in only 2 hours. 

The joy I felt that day, to know I had a useful skill that others needed desperately, was immense. I now knew I could teach in a way that others found immediately helpful, and it had me on cloud nine.

Let me share something I’m embarrassed about. I worked in the real estate world when the market crashed in 2008. I suddenly found myself without work, a ton of debt, and no way to buy dog food. 

I didn’t want to go back to a cubicle or a sales job, so I decided to offer my services as a dog walker. I was not making anywhere close to the amount of money as I was used to, but surprisingly I didn’t care. 

I was doing what I loved, hanging out with dogs all day and teaching people!

I don’t know anyone who cares more about the wellbeing of dogs than I do. I live for that moment when a dog gets a new skill down! That moment when I see it click in their mind, and they nail the exercise. I friggin love that moment.

I want to see that look on your dog’s face!

I’m curious… have you had a moment like this with your dog? Have you taught them something new and gotten a bit too excited that they figured it out? I’d love to hear from you. Send me an email directly with your experience: info@trainwalkpoop.com
