"Five years ago Sarah helped me rescue/adopt Scruffy. She began training both of us to become certified as therapy for my husband. Sarah is a fantastic teacher and has a way about her that makes both of us want to show how much we learned every week.

Fritz & Katy

"Sarah also provided good tips and educated us on diet. She has exactly what it takes to ensure you have a well behaved and faithful pet."

The Szpyrka’s

One hour once a week with Sarah's instruction and a little work at home, and we had a completely different happy member of the family. All thanks to Sarah's excellent training abilities.
