The Covid-19 Pandemic is changing the way we do things and is affecting our lives and that of our dogs.  You might be struggling with keeping your dog content with your new work from home routine, or quiet when you are on your next Zoom conference call.  Meeting the physical and mental needs of your dog while sheltering in place and practicing social distancing can be challenging. Many of you were already experiencing behavior problems with your dog long before Covid-19 came on the scene.
Adapting to change can be difficult but often times necessary. As we continue to adapt to this ever changing climate, the way I am able to provide care and services to my clients has changed as well.  Rest assured, you can still find the dog training and behavior support you need during these difficult times.  



Sara Scott has been training dogs professionally in the East Bay Area since 2000 and comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience that can only be gained through time and dedication to the art and science of dog behavior and training. She is deeply educated in the dog training and behavior field and brings her knowledge to application with great insight, grace and compassion for both species, human and dog.
