About Sarah

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Where fashionista pups are walked and trained.

Passport + Puppy is a luxury dog service where we come to your puppy's home/office/hotel to walk them and train them in the comfort of their home. We have industry-leading Dog GPS technology, amazing service, top-notch training and happy, healthy fur babies after every session.

I am Certified in Dog CPR, First Aid + Safety as of November 2016 and a Certified Dog Trainer by a Veterinarian of the Royal Veterinary College in the UK.

I'm studying under Dr. Ian Dunbar who is a highly-respected veterinarian, as well as animal behaviorist.

I wholeheartedly believe that a huggable and well-trained dog can make or break your family dynamics. Therefore, when I train your dog, I am also training you and your family so that everyone can live a life filled with joy. After all, they are supposed to be your best friend!

Training:
ALL TRAINING IS DONE VIA POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT & CONSISTENCY.
Post training will come with un-edited training videos for owners to follow to ensure training success, after my sessions are over.

Leash-pulling:
Does your dog pull on walks or drag you down the street?
If this is the case for you even in the slightest, please contact me.
I train by positive reinforcement with treats each time they walk beside me or behind me.
While leash pulling is annoying, it can lead to other obedience issues, so let's nip it in the bud now.
Please do contact me.

Crate Training:
Do you have a puppy who is not used to being in their crate?
Or perhaps you have a change in your schedule and want your older dog to stay in the crate all day?
Using your crate, or my crate, I teach your doggie to be calm with going in and out of the crate, so they learn to like their crate like their little home, instead of fear it.
If you are interested in hearing about crate training, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would more than love to help!

Potty Training:
Do you have a puppy that doesn't know where to go to the bathroom?
I am your go-to.
I will gladly train them in your house, in their familiar surroundings via private sessions and/or you coming with them to my apartment for 1-on-1 sessions.

Obedience Training;
Obedience is an area that covers commands like sitting.
Again, through positive reinforcement, I will train your dog to adhere to your habits and lifestyle.

Anti-Separation Anxiety Training;
Do you love your pup dearly but are dearly tired of coming home to things being destroyed?
I will curb this habit for you. Please contact me.

Walks:
I will travel to your home, hotel or other location to walk your dog(s).

Drop-Ins:

Drop-Ins are for very basic care of your dog(s) while you are away.
I will ensure they have food, water, brushed, groomed around their eyes and have a short walk, or let out in your yard.

Dog Taxi:
I will drop them off or pick them up at any location, for any reason, including vet appointments or just to transport them across DFW.

I am absolutely in love with dogs and for proof of this, see my 5-Star Reviews.

I can't wait to hear from you and your fur baby! :)

Sarah is amazing - not only will she love your dog when walking, she is also well-versed in positive reinforcement training methods. I would highly reccommend Sarah - your 4 legged kids are in great hands.

Sarah was extremely professional and I received lots of updates and pictures. Was nice to know my dogs were having a good time while I was gone.

Lots of notes and great communication. My dogs were giving kisses to her when I left and they both slept like they had played tons once I got them home!!!

Thanks!!

Sarah, thank you for taking care of our little Juanito. I can't express enough how professional and caring you were from begining to end. To all other pet owners, I have used other sitters and hands down Sarah's unique knowledge of dog breeds and understanding of different behaviors made me feel at ease that Juanito was in great hands. He can be a little hyperactive, but I call it his teenage years. I highly recommend Sarah and her team, in fact I am booking Sarah for her one on one training sessions to help Juanito get passed his "teenage years".

Thank you and Juanito is looking forward to your organic healthy dog treats.
