Source of Inspiration

Sarah's lifelong focus on the unique relationship between dogs and their human companions began with the legacy of their late mother, an Equestrian Therapist. Growing up on a small hobby farm exposed Sarah to various animals, fostering an early understanding of appropriate engagement. Early exposure to force-free training methods with dogs and horses left a lasting impact on Sarah, sparking a passion that led them to start training at the age of 5. This early experience, combined with a childhood Newfoundland responding to commands, set the foundation for Sarah's dedication to understanding the complexity and wonder of dogs.
