Hi! My name is Sara Baker.
I'm a passionate wife, mother of two ridiculously beautiful daughters, and family dog trainer.

Meet the Bakers
I grew up with dogs, cats, horses, and a menagerie of other creatures, training my own dogs to do fun tricks, and saddle-breaking young horses and ponies. In the late 90s, my mom and I saw an agility demo at a stock show and decided to learn and compete with our own dogs. We traveled all over the country attending seminars and championships almost every weekend.
However, all that training couldn't help our dogs' behavior problems at home. They rarely listened off leash, barked constantly, suffered from obsessive compulsive behaviors, and attacked each other. Our Jack Russells fights were so bad, you would have thought we were running a dog fighting ring. We tried everything we could think of, but nothing we tried worked. Their fights grew progressively worse, becoming more bloody and unpredictable. And then they turned on the oldest pack member, Abby. We made the difficult decision to re-home them to separate, single-dog homes.
Since those dark days, I have devoted much of my time traveling the country attending seminars, workshops, and conferences to learn all I can about dog behavior, canine psychology, and new advances in training tools in order to teach my clients how to prevent all the problems my dogs and I endured through the years.
I belong to the IACP (INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CANINE PROFESSIONALS, #A5796) as well as several local and online communities of like-minded trainers, behaviorists, veterinarians, and average dog owners. Together, our mission is to educate the public on dog-bite prevention and to stop 5 million+ dogs a year from being unnecessarily euthanized.
