Profile: Hello:

The methods and training solutions I teach are based in calm, leadership training, combined with positive reinforcement and reward.

The training that I teach is "in home", one on one, rather than group classes. I feel that by working one on one, there is a higher rate
of success for you and your dog, as well as offering more personalized attention.

The services I offer are:

Basic obedience
Puppy programs
Problem solving
Behavioral issues

Pricing are on a case to case basis, I do not have hourly pricing, since everyone's needs are different.

I offer training programs where I work with you and your dog once a week for either- two weeks, four
weeks or six weeks for the program of your choosing. Most programs include a free in-home free
Consultation/Evaluation before training. For your convenience-all major credit cards are accepted

Profile: I am dedicated to helping my clients understand their dog's basic needs to create a well balanced and obedient canine. All sessions take place in YOUR home based around YOUR schedule. My techniques are clear and effective because each training session is modified to the individual needs of my clients. My courses focus primarily on basic obedience and behavior modification.

As a dog trainer, it is my responsibility to educate all of my clients on dog behavior and psychology. When we gain a better understanding for how these animals are wired, we can then appropriately put together a plan of action for how to alter undesirable behaviors - utilizing positive reinforcement methods.

Dogs are such a beautiful addition to our families and ask only for proper exercise, leadership and affection in return!

Profile: Teaching you to teach your dog! Offering professional, personalized dog training in the Utah Valley area. I can help you with obedience training, problem solving, behavior modification, CGC prep and testing, Therapy Dog prep and testing, and Service Dog training and certification. Whatever it is you're wanting to work on I will tailor each session to fit you and your dog's individual needs!

I believe a strong relationship with your dog is the key to good behavior. But how can you have a good relationship if you don’t understand each other? My goal is to help you understand how your dog learns and how he or she thinks, allowing you to work with your dog, increase respect, and develop a more meaningful relationship. I believe that the best human/canine relationships are built from love and respect, not force and fear. Because of this, I focus on using positive training methods. I also strive to make sure that my training methods are up to date with the most recent sciences and behavioral studies.

I understand that, like people, every dog is different. There is no such thing as a one all training method that will work for every dog. Shaping methods may work wonders in a variety of situations, but some dogs may do better with luring techniques. While most dogs may do fine without the use of a clicker, some dogs may need it in order to focus. I will mold my training methods to fit the individual needs of you and your dog.

Please note that I do not employ the use of shock collars, prong collars, or choke chains.

Profile: Hey guys, my name is Natalie Allred.
Here's a little something about me and why i'm a trainer:
I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College where i earned my Dog Training certificate and training. I really enjoy what I do because i can manage my hours and i can dog train even if i were a mom (which i'm not). I love working with dogs and their owners to create forever family pets that will last a lifetime. I've had several dogs growing up but none of them lasted very long due to behavior problems and disobedience that we just didn't know how to handle. I decided i wanted this to stop. When i got a dog i didn't want to have to struggle to keep it because i didn't know how to handle it. So I looked for somewhere i could learn about dogs and i found ABC. The first dog I ever trained is my family dog, Roman, a Boxer/Labrador, and we've had him for almost a year. I don't worry about him being around kids and strangers, he doesn't run away, he never barks, and his obedience and impulse control is amazing. I thank ABC for that.

Now about my business:
My business is called Happy Tails Obedience Training. I am located in Rocky Ridge, UT, and i train as far south as Nephi, and north up to Provo. My rates and classes are listed on my website and to sign up for one, email me at, or call me at (801) 822-9877.
