reviews from Bay Area dog owners

Sara changed my dog's life! The work we did with Sara wasn't just training - it was behavioral therapy.

Sara is one of the best and most experienced dog trainers in San Francisco. She has been invaluable in helping us with our rescued dog.

Sara has my highest respect and admiration and I would recommend her to any dog owner without reservation.
