Keep the Joy in Training


Sara is amazing!! She's been working with my dogs for the past 3 months & what a difference it has made for my family. I have a very young puppy & a senior dog and with her help we have been able to not only fully incorporate our new baby into our "pack" but (forgive the cliche) but she's proven that you really can teach an old dog new tricks!! Her kind positive teaching has gotten us through behavior issues such as potty training, resource guarding, leash pulling just to name a few. Sara is extremely knowledgeable and takes the extra time to get to know her clients & designs each session to meet each dogs needs. If you are looking for a patient & loving dog trainer who gets results, then no further!!! Wholehearted Canine has found a place in my heart & she will in yours too!!

Proven, Positive Methods


Sarah has a degree from Baylor in biology. She has a great background in dog sitting before becoming a trainer. Her heart is set on training dogs in a more compassionate and encouraging way. Not only will she train your dog, she will train you. She welcomes your questions and is very knowledgeable. Sarah has guided me with my 14 year old dog to maintain the best for her health. I trust Sarah with my dog and know she will do what ever is needed to help arrive at a well trained and happy dog.

Relationship Based Training



Sarah does a great job at teaching both us and our dogs! She focuses on what we as owners can do to get the most out of our pups and how to help them be better mannered in all circumstances. She definitely knows what she is doing and is very well educated! I HIGHLY recommend!!

Fun Training Games



After just the initial evaluation there was a HUGE difference in DK. Sarah taught us and him calm. It was fascinating to watch. One of my kids who didn't know a trainer had visited said, "is something wrong with DK, he's so calm. He didn't even jump on me when I came downstairs". I'm excited!
