Clients rave about Sarah’s In-home dog training
Having our own personal dog trainer has made our 'life with puppy' not only enjoyable but rewarding. Sarah seems to be able to get our puppy to do in a matter of minutes what we've tried for hours to do. She really has been a teacher for our whole family:dog, kids, and adults alike. Her time with us has been personal, warm and instructive. We'd all wag our tails if we could when we see her coming up our walk!
Thanks from Morgan and his loving family
Our experience with Sarah has been great!! Our whole family including Nicki the dog, looks forward to Sundays. Having Sarah come right to our house has been extremely helpful-we tried group puppy classes but we didn't seem to get much out of them--after only three weeks with Sarah we feel that we have a calm and happy dog!! She uses common sense and explains things to us (the people) that make sense--like using lots of positive re-enforcement-which makes everything fun for us and the dog!
Before we called Sarah I wasn't sure if the dog and I could live together-now we've become friends--which makes my 12 and 13 year old very happy!

Sarah's up beat and enthusiastic personality makes training a relaxed and fun experience for both dog and human.
Put simply, Sarah is incredible. We wouldn't have the dog we have (and our sanity) if it were not for Sarah. For starters, she helped us puppy-proof our house and gave us a thousand ways to socialize our new puppy. Our dog is so well adjusted because Sarah took the time to impress upon us the importance of early socialization. We were able to successfully and quickly housetrain our dog thanks to Sarah's simple and systematic plan. We learned practical stuff like how to give our dog a treat, what to do when a stranger comes to the door and how to tell when dog-play is too rough or just right. Sarah has a deep understanding of dog psychology and she is able to transform complex ideas into understandable and observable behaviors. Thanks to Sarah, we are aware of our dog's stress and excitement and we are able to take proactive steps to shape his behavior. Sarah helped us to train our dog (and train us) the basic commands with clear & concise language. Sarah not only came to our house on a regular basis, but also met us at the dog park, corresponded over e-mail and returned our phone calls to help with ongoing puppy issues. We are forever indebted to Sarah for teaching us how to love our dog more fully.
