My dog, Oscar, is a young, energetic (sometimes unruly!) lab and regular agility lessons with Sarah give him a great physical and mental workout. He leaves happily tired, and is always so excited to come to the Doggie Academy and to see Sarah, who is a firm, clear, and generous teacher and trainer. Through agility, I have picked up some very helpful training tips that carry over well into daily life and have learned a lot about my dog: what motivates him, what engages him, how to hold his attention, how to respond when he misbehaves. I appreciate seeing an approach that is positive and non-coercive but also firm. And we have a lot of fun!
