Professional Dog Training

Behavior, Obedience, Socialization

training for humans and dogs.

We don't just train dogs. We mentor our human clients as well.


Our goal is to provide our clients with the knowledge and training necessary to be the best dog owner/handler/trainer that they can be for the life of their dogs.


Meet Sarah's pet family

Mia is Sarah's senior dog. She was going to be euthanized at a shelter due to human aggression. Sarah stepped up on her behalf and she proved to be one of the greatly misunderstood dogs. Mia has helped rehabilitate and train dogs along side Sarah for the past 10 years.


Tink was just a pup when Sarah got her. She and her owner were homeless so Sarah took her to provide her a home environment. Tink has spent the past 3 years helping Sarah train dogs at IDTE.


Spirit was a client's dog. She was too much dog for the client and while training her Sarah realized how special Spirit was so she agreed to adopt her. Spirit has spent the past 2 years helping Sarah train dogs on their social skills.


Joey is Sarah's other senior dog. She adopted him from a shelter when he was 1. Joey's nickname is Trader Joe because he has no loyalty. He will walk off with any new person that comes his way and shows him some attention.


Little Lady is Sarah's only kitty. She rescued her from under a shed as a kitten.


Socialization & Playgroups

Our training prepares you and your dog for living in the real world. You and your dog will learn how to work together as a team in real life situations. We have solutions for behavior problems and will teach you and your dog basic, advanced, and off-leash obedience work.

Our socialization and playgroups give you and your dog a safe environment to learn and improve social skills. With Sarah's help, dogs and humans learn proper social skills  and how to navigate around dogs with different play-styles, personalities, social skills and ranking.

Our daycare provides your dog an opportunity to burn energy, socialize with others, or to get hands on work with Sarah while you and your dog are working on behavior training. Each dogs personal needs are considered and your dog is set up for success and advancing their learning.

What Pet Owners Say

Class Training

"Sarah is great at tailoring teaching to the individual dog and person and can offer practical advice on every-day and unusual situations."

"I can't say enough good things about Sarah! Molly has come such a long way.... and we have, too! I love that we both have coping skills now to address Molly's fear aggression issues. I appreciate Sarah's patience and knowledge. I am so glad we found her.... it has been life changing!"

Shelter Training Program

"Sarah has always been so helpful and generous with her time with our shelter/rescue dogs here in Mendo! The lake county (and beyond) community is lucky to have her as a resource!"
