Canine Life Skills for Dogs and their Humans
Side By Side Dog Training is family-owned and operated in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. Using scientifically based, pain and force free, humane, positive reinforcement training methods, we help canines learn valuable life skills and facilitate the building of life-long bonds between humans and their dogs.
Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, Certified Professional Dog Trainer, and Certified Canine Behavior Consultant, Laurie Schlossnagle, has a unique and in-depth variety of experience in dog training, behavior modification, competition obedience and rally, service dogs, and therapy and crisis response dogs. Laurie has been training dogs professionally for over 11 years. Laurie is Utah's ONLY trainer/consultant with her particular combination of experience, certifications, licenses, and professional memberships. Laurie has a unique outlook on her training and methodology -- if she hasn't personally participated in it in some way, she is not teaching it! Clients can be sure they are hearing the voice of experience when they work with Laurie and Side By Side Dog Training.
In addition to her certifications, Laurie is a Professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT), a certified Evaluator for the AKC Canine Good Citizen, AKC Puppy Star and the APDT's Canine Life and Social Skills (C.L.A.S.S.) programs, a Tester/Observer for Therapy Dogs, Incorporated, a Rally and Obedience Judge, and a member of the Pet Professional Guild.

Committed to helping my clients build, and maintain, positive relationships with their dogs through scientifically based, pain and force free positive reinforcement methods.
"Training is not a luxury, but a key component to good animal care. Everyone who has a pet should understand that basic fact. Training is a way to enhance the quality of life for our pets. It is far more than just teaching a dog to do a cute trick. Training is about teaching a dog (or any animal) how to live in our world safely."
