Dear Dog Owner

  • Are you embarrassed by your dog’s behavior?
  • Need expert dog training so that you can walk your dog in public without your dog pulling you or lunging at other dogs?
  • Want a dog trainer to make your dog stop barking or jumping all over your guests?
  • Does your dog get protective and aggressive towards other dogs or even humans that get close to you?
  • Are you afraid that your dog’s unpredictable behavior might result in a bite?

If you answered “Yes” to ANY of these questions…



Online Dog Training Has Many Benefits That

In Person Dog Training Does Not

  • Because I Will Not Be Physically Present, Your Dog Will Associate Listening To You Rather Than To Me
  • My Physical Presence Can Be An Added Stressor. Your Dog Gets To Easily Learn In A Quiet Environment At Home
  • Receive the Zoom Recordings to Share with Other Family Members
  • You Don’t Need To Leave Your Home
  • Less Drive Time Allows For More Flexible Scheduling.

What’s Included?

  • We’ll Discuss Your Dog’s Current Behavior Issues & Bad Habits
  • We’ll Do Personalized Dog Training to Get Your Dog to Listen

Here’s Why

We aren’t like any other dog training or dog behavior business. Our programs are completely customized based on your dog’s current situation, and your relationship/behavior goals with them. Our dog trainer doesn’t train every dog the same because every dog is UNIQUE, and that’s the beauty of it!

  • We can cater to your dog’s specific needs
  • Every factor is taken into consideration including the environment and breed
  • Your own goals are integrated into the training
  • Special attention is given to unique dog behavior and habits

We, at Four Legged Scholars, believe that dog training is an ongoing process and requires commitment. This is why we will help you be more involved with your dog’s training. Through clear and simple instructions, you can build on the strong foundation that comes from our training. We clear the way for you so that you can have lasting happiness with an obedient and well-behaved dog by:

  • Getting your dog to listen to you
  • Answering any questions or concerns you may have about dog training
  • Walking you through every step when training your dog
  • Giving you a better understanding of your dog’s quirks and habits
  • Increasing the trust bond between you and your dog

Here’s the thing…

  • Even if you have already tried another trainer before
  • Even if you have given your dog medication to help it relax
  • Even if you don’t know where to start

I don’t want you to give up hope just yet!

Instead I want you to imagine what life would be like with a dog that reliably listens to your commands because they know that they will be rewarded with love.

It is possible…seriously!

We just need to understand what is causing your dog’s behavior first, so that we can create a clear line of communication, and establish a relationship where your dog is not only obedient – but also confident, social, and happy.

Working with Johanna was an absolute pleasure and my crazy Corgi Skye enjoyed it very much as well. Johanna was extremely diligent and patient with her and myself throughout our learning process. She explained the concepts very well and broke them down into simple to understand steps, which was super impactful for me. It’s a lot of information to learn at once but taking it a step at a time truly helps comprehension. She has helped us get Skye on track to being a calmer and more welcoming household dog and also helped us find better ways to get Skye’s energy out when she needs to. If you need assistance or advice on training or just being better connected with your pets, I would highly recommend Johanna!

Johanna's positive training system has not only helped our dog but has also helped us to be better pet owners. By learning our dog's body language and applying our own calm demeanor and positive reinforcement, we can help her maintain her own level of calmness during what used to be stressful situations for her. The knowledge and the tools we have gained with Johanna have brought about a more peaceful and pleasant relationship with our dog, Ginny. We highly recommend Johanna for your dog training needs.

Johanna is a really special trainer. We signed our rescue dog Scout up for training because she almost ran away chasing deer in our neighborhood. Scout also pulled really hard on the leash and I was afraid someone might fall when walking her. Johanna helped us fix all that and more. Scout is a boxer hound mix, so her smell/chase instinct is really strong. Using all positive reinforcement, we were able to train her to go "easy" on our walks and not pull the leash. Scout also comes when we call her, even facing tough distractions like other dogs or food. We can now walk her off leash on trails and be confident she'll stay near or next to us and not run off chasing something. She also learned other commands like sit/stay, go get it, and lay on your bed. We humans were trained too! We learned what harness and leashes to use, which treats were best, when to treat her, how to get her interested in training, how to progress through a more complex command, and more. Johanna really knows both animal and human psychology, and working with her was such a fulfilling and rewarding experience — well worth the investment. Scout loved her and we did too. We cannot recommend her strongly enough!

Our dog, Bella, was skittish around new people. She would bark and growl. Our veterinarian recommended training. We contacted Johanna from Ohio4LeggedScholars. Johanna taught us counter conditioning and commands paired with treats. Bella has responded well to the training. She has become more comfortable with new people and new situations. We learned to watch Bella's body language to know when she is feeling confident and comfortable.Thank you Johanna!

I love them. Before they came, my dog max, didnt know how to sit for anything, he kept pulling on the leash when we went for walks on our road, and he kept not waiting when we tried to take him out. He would bolt out. Now he sits a waits for the leash to get it on him. Hes such a great listener now.

We were ready to rip our hair out when I found Johanna online. I contacted her and discussed our problems with our 1 year old Lab Laney. She was jumping on us, afraid of people, barked at everyone/everything that walked by, walked horribly on a leash, and barged at the door when someone was there. Johanna immediately reassured me that she could help! She taught us the different signs that our dog gives us. She also taught us about counter conditioning. She gave us the tools we need to change Laney’s behavior. It is not an overnight fix. You need to be able to work with your pup until it sinks in. Laney has made much improvement in all areas! We are grateful to have found Johanna!!!

Four Legged Scholars provided our family with the expertise and guidance needed to train our new puppy Drew. Trainer Johanna Teresi was the perfect person to help us. Johanna's calm demeanor, excellent knowledge and organized approach allayed any fears that we had about dog training. Drew responded well to her weekly training visits and our ongoing daily training routines. My family wholeheartedly recommends Four Legged Scholars and Johanna Teresi as fantastic and caring solutions when one considers the best method to train your dog. Dave McCoy Ravenna, Ohio

I contacted Johanna when Cooper was almost 6 months old. He had major issues with jumping on people and constantly barking at other dogs. I was impressed with her persistence and patience when training. She probably spent as much time training me as we spent training Cooper. Classes are over for now and Cooper has met all but one of the goals that we set for him. Johanna has given me the tools and techniques to continue to train him, and I am confident that he/we will someday be able to walk in the park without his barking at every dog he meets. Taking the class has and will continue to benefit my relationship with Cooper for years to come. Thank you Johanna.

Thank you, Johanna! My mom, Amber, and I are so happy to have taken your puppy obedience class. I used to have really bad leash aggression and lunged at cars. However, thanks to you and your wonderful advice; my mom has learned tricks like leave it, to help me manage my anxiety! Our walks are now much less stressful for me and mom and it's because of you! Thank you so much -Buckley and Amber
