Sarah absolutely knows and loves dogs and how to train them. I was very frustrated about how to train this intelligent but difficult dog. Making a huge difference in our life to have this great puppy that we can enjoy.Nov 27, 2018Verified
Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!Apr 10, 2018
Good Boy Obedience is phenomenal! Not only did Sarah train my pomeranian and border collie to perfection, but she also taught me how to keep their training up. Her teaching technique makes it easy for newbies (like myself) to understand how best to get dogs doing everything we ask. In our private lessons we learned a ton of commands, but my favorite part was training them with the remote collar so that they can be off leash. I love not having to worry about them going crazy when someone new comes over anymore, or trying to get food off the table. Sarah does such an amazing job and I’m so glad we decided to train with her. Will book more lessons soon to teach them even more!Apr 10, 2018
I'm so glad that I found Sarah and Good Boy Obedience! I was so frustrated and exhausted all the time and every time I took my dog Cy out in public I always felt so embarrassed being dragged around by my dog. I hated taking walks with my dog and that only made me feel worse. Sarah made me feel so much better, knowing that I wasn't the only one who has struggled like that and that walks didn't have to feel like a never-ending game of tug of war with my dog. In just the first lesson I saw a HUGE change in Cy. I swear this dog had never looked at my during a walk in my life and not only was he looking at me while we walked but he was next to my leg! I was hooked. I can't say enough good things about Sarah, she's an amazing trainer with such a positive outlook and an infectious passion! Thank you so much Sarah for helping me and Cy. I never thought I could enjoy walks with my dog so much!Apr 17, 2018
Sarah first helped with our older terrier, 8 years old at the time, who had become aggressive as he lost his eyesight. After he bit one of our neighbors, we thought we may not be able to keep him. Sarah trained him to wear a muzzle and follow basic commands. He had always been an anxious, reactive barker. He is now much calmer and happier!Apr 10, 2018
