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.

Our dog Sullivan (Sully) who is 1.5 was very vocal when we went on walks and had no recall. We didn't want to avoid taking him on walks because we had a lab that was dog aggressive. We felt the aggression was due to a lack of exposure and we didn't want the same to happen to Sully. My wife Shannon found Four Legged Scholars and we decided to work with them because our schedule was busy. We both work full time and our 3 year old keeps us busy after work. The live personalized online one-on-one was great for us because it gave us the opportunity to work with our trainer Johanna without the stress of planning around our busy lives. The online platform was great because we would video tape our training and then Johanna would meet with us over Zoom to go over our progress. We could see our strengths and weaknesses rather than getting feedback during an in-person class where there are so many moving parts. We did the 4 week class and worked on L-A-T and Target. It took us a while to get it down but to see the improvement from our first video to our last was amazing. We have learned a lot and are now comfortably taking Sully on walks. We still have a lot of training to focus on but now we have the tools to work on recall. We highly recommend Four Legged Scholars.

Johanna is absolutely amazing! I worked with her some years ago and the training has paid off time and time again. My dog and I had been thru an abusive relationship and my dog no longer trusted people. She was aggressive and terrified and I wanted to help her. Johanna taught me how to recognize my dogs body language and how to react to what she is doing. I learned to realize when my dog was becoming overwhelmed so I could intervene and prevent something from happening. My dog hasn’t needed a muzzle for almost 4 years now. I live in high rise condo in the middle of Atlanta. She lets strangers love on her in the elevators and at the dog walk. Tail is always wagging! She has come such a long way from then and I am so grateful for Four Legged Scholars!! She also helped train my parents dogs even longer ago! Absolutely amazing! ♥️

I was in need of some dog training for my Pug. He was pulling on the leash, barking at other dogs and people when on walks. Also, he would bark when other people were over and all the attention was not on him. I joked he suffered from FOMO. The live on line training worked wonders for us. The lessons were broken down into manageable tasks and the positive feedback from videos that we made during the week were very helpful. We really enjoyed our sessions.

Our dog, Wick, loves almost everyone, but there were a couple incidents where she was scared of a person and nearly bit them. It was so out of character for her, so it was very scary for us. Wick is our first dog, so we needed help recognizing her triggers and how to better deal with these situations. We did live personalized online one-on-one training sessions with Johanna, and she helped us recognize Wick's body language and taught us techniques to counter-condition her in situations that make her scared. Johanna was great to work with! We're now much more confident realizing when Wick is scared and how to handle it.

My family recently got a six month old bearded collie. We've had dogs in the past so we thought traditional training classes would work. But we hadn't had a lot of experience with this dog breed and we were quickly overwhelmed by his more energetic behavior. He would jump on everyone and engage in play biting behaviors. We were also worried because he would eat anything he could find. I found Four Legged Scholars in my search for training classes. I really liked the idea of personalized training courses that would help with our particular needs. I enrolled in the live personalized online class. I was a bit nervous about taking an online-only dog training course, but I found that the biggest difference really is that the online course put more responsibility on me. I couldn't sit back and rely on a trainer to do all the work. You definitely have to be more focused and engaged because the online class is more for you and addressing your needs as they pertain to your dog. We were able to focus on the more troublesome aspects of my dog's behavior, instead of quickly moving from topic to topic. We still work with my dog as much as we can, but Four Legged Scholars gave us the tools we needed to not feel so overwhelmed. My dog is a bit stubborn, so teaching him things like "drop it" or "come" definitely took more time to work through, but from our class we were able to create more of a step-by-step way of going through this training so it wasn't so stressful. We still work with him on these commands, but he has already improved so much. He understands the basics like "sit" or "stay," which he didn't know before we started. He has noticeably lessened in the troublesome behaviors he had, like jumping on everyone or eating any garbage or loose items around the house. We were able to better learn to gage his needs in terms of enrichment or mental stimulation through from our first class. My dog and I better understand what the other needs from each other.

We have a large family, including three big dogs. So when our biggest dog Obi, the Rottweiler, started showing aggression we panicked. The vet suggested we put him down after an experience in the office. He then said we could also try training and gave us Johanna's business card. Just a phone call with her made us feel like there was hope. We signed up to do the online sessions with FourLeggedScholars. The process from the first contact to the last was well oiled and very helpful. Obi gets to stay with our family now and we feel like meting with her has given us the guidance and knowledge we need to keep our family, friends and him safe. I was a tad worried about doing the training online, but it really worked out great and we were able to fit such a big task into our busy schedules. I feel like she set us up for success from the very beginning. Thank you.

My kids and I recently completed our live personalized online one-on-one dog training sessions with Four Legged Scholars. I can report that the time spent was a success! Our pup Ollie had a lot to learn from recall to being house broken. During the allotted sessions, we managed to learn how to work with Ollie from his perspective. In a short amount of time and after dedicated work, Ollie has reached the goals we set out to achieve with the guidance of Four Legged Scholars. Thank you!

Gracie is my first puppy and I didn't know what I was doing when I signed up for online training sessions with Johanna. Well, Gracie has become the best dog - she's a joy to have around and easy to live with. Johanna taught us how to understand her needs and "listen" to her. Taking the class online was a big advantage. I got to apply what I was learning as I trained Gracie. Johanna knows her dogs!
