Treating Dogs Like Family

Let’s be honest: whether you’re raising a puppy, integrating a new dog or coping with long-term frustrations, living with a dog can be a overwhelming. The good news? Your dog is more like a kid, willing to please and cooperate, than an untamed wolf! Research now shows dogs are mentally and emotionally equivalent to 2-3 year old children, able to learn words, count, feel and reason. Thankfully, the age of top-dog, dominance based training is coming to an end. Phew!

Meet Sarah Hodgson, aka the Dog Mommy. With 30+ years experience, and books and blogs to her credit, she knows first-hand that dogs are, in many ways, very similar to young kids: they just wants to fit in and have fun! Using a trademark blend of wit, compassion, and proven skills Sarah communicates instructions clearly, directs behavior compassionately and rewards success lavishly. Her students — both two- and four-legged — feel valued, confident, connected and smart.
