About Sarah

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am Certified in Dog CPR, First Aid + Safety as of November 2016 and I'm becoming a Certified Dog Trainer by a Veterinarian of the Royal Veterinary College in the UK.

It brings me so much joy to play, walk, have specialized dog outings with your dog(s), train, dog taxi and dog sit!
My goal is to keep your pups out of boredom and active while you are busy!

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.

Sitting:
I will stay at your house with your dog overnight to care for them, play with them and ensure their comfort in their own home.
Studies show that dogs experience the least amount of stress when you are away when they stay in their familiar surroundings.

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

Grooming:
I will groom your dogs at my house, or for an additional charge I can come to you and groom them in your home.
Pricing depends on size of dog and cut.

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.

Specialized Outings:
I will take your dog(s) to a dog park off-property, dog-friendly restaurant with a dog menu or other surprise dog dates as part of my concierge service.
Pricing varies, please contact me with your cell and I will call you.

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.

Play Dates:
Play dates will occur with my dog at my house, sitting at your house, dog park, OR dog-friendly restaurant with a dog menu while you are away for vacation or work.
Pricing varies, please contact me with your cell and I will call you.

I am absolutely in love with dogs and for proof of this, go to my blog: passportandpuppy.com OR see my 5-Star Reviews.

Let's set up a Meet-And-Greet or I will personally call you to discuss details.
I can't wait to hear from you! :)

Wonderful job, my puppy loved her. Very responsive and sent videos/pictures.
Sarah was great with Astro!! She sent me picture and video updates. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that needs a pet sitter . By far the best I have experienced when having to leave my pup with someone. And I will be booking with her again when I travel in the future.

Sarah is delightful !
She's professional, hard working and passionate about her clients. Sarah's intelligent and has a love for all dogs.
She kept each appointment as promised and sent texts when on her way and during visit. Her vehicle was also nice and dog friendly which I find important as you dont want her breaking down on the way to visit your fur baby.
We look forward to building a long lasting relationship with her and will recommend her to friends and associates.

Dino, who is 8 months old stayed with Sarah Fri through Sun. The entire experience was VERY unprofessional. Ishould've went with a different sitter. When I dropped him off, I couldn't find her apartment and top of that she texted me telling me she was flexibl, buttoldg me o arrive at 1pm shar because she had a business meeting at 1:30pm. I didn't get there at 1pm sharp, but luckily she still took him in, which was nice. However, she hadfriends coming into her apartmet.. . When I picked him up on Sunda I got there 5 min earlier than 3pm and she told me to wait ou because she wasn't ready. apt. She gaDino's e his bed and a toy that didn't belong an 2 min later she gave me Dino. She d told us she would carry his crate to the parking garage outside. d was petting Dino and he had a scratch on his nose,which I thought was from playing with other dogut also I noticed w Wand we were missing about $10-$15 wort. of tWhen I mentioned that Dino was missing toys, she let me inside her apartment and I immediately regretted letting Sarah w Dinouppy. The living room wasthybags. The bedroom had dog crates with dogs barking and blankets covering their crate And I'm wondering ihis scratch was from being in his crate for too long and not being able to get out enou or playing with other dogsgh. e "kennel nose"imight be s acceptable if he gets boarded at a vet, but I was expecting more from a certified Dogvacay sitte There's more but no room to write.... . r. oys. y,

Sarah was amazing and our little Lexi is missing her so much! It was great to go away and not have any worries. Sarah kept me up to the minute with all that was going on. She sent adorable vidoes that kept us laughing throughout our trip. She was great about coming and staying in our home and that made it so easy. She even baked Lexi homemade treats! My kids were even jealous!!! I would recommend Sarah to anyone that is looking for the dog to have a sitter, walker transporter anything! She is simply a wonderful addition to our family!

Sarah, was very professional and nurturing toward my boy Blu. Would use her again for sure.
Very carry and helpful person
I am one of those people that trusts my dog to no one. Sarah is truly kind & sweet. I couldn't be more excited to have found her!
Sarah was a huge help a joy to work with! This was my first time using Dog Vacay and she made the process stress free and convenient by promptly responding to all my questions. She worked around my busy schedule and was flexible with arrangements. She also sent multiple pics/updates and gave me a full report during her stay. I would definitely use her again!

Sarah came by and spent an hour with our pup twice a day for four days. We could tell she enjoyed playing with our dog and that our dog really enjoyed her visits. She texted us on her way and when she left which made it all very easy. We will definitely use her again!

Sarah took good care of both our dogs. She send us daily pictures and news.
Beef had a great time! Dog park, walks and some cuddle time. It was a vaca for Him!
Sarah is a responsible pet sitter. Will book daycare for my pup with her again.
Sarah is great! She kept me up to date with what my dog was doing. Sarah asked a lot of great questions before and during to ensure you gave my dog exactly what she needed. I travel a lot and it give me peace of mind knowing my dog will be so well taken care of.

Sarah was extremely nice to work with and extremely flexible, even with schedule changes. She kept in touch constantly throughout the stay. Sheba and Emma did not care at all when I returned for them. My guess is that they were spoiled rotten and had a great time. If you are the jealous type, just be cool and understand that your pets might like Sarah more...luckily dogs have crappy long term memory.

Many thumbs up!

Sarah was fantastic with my dog, she kept me posted the whole weekend and sent me pictures so we could see how are dog was doing. Even though she had other dogs she was sitting Sarah was able to take all dogs on individual walks so they got her full attention. We will definitely use her again!
Thanks Sarah,
Ronny and Jeanie

My first experience with a dog sitter was not a great one and it was with great apprehension that I thought I would give it a try again. Actually it was kind of my last resort.
I am VERY happy to say that Sarah has completely reversed my opinion of this service! Not only did she do exactly as she said she would, she also was a very polite and pleasant young lady! She immediately connected with my boy and I could tell he had a stress free stay with her!! I will for sure be using Sarah again in the near future!!!

Sarah was great! She was very quick to respond, very flexible with scheduling, and had a lot of experience taking care of dogs. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her for the weekend. During my dogs stay, she was great with giving me updates so I never had to worry about how she was doing. I would highly recommend Sarah!

Wonderful experience with Sarah. I felt my puppy was in great hands and never had to worry with the updates and pictures she sent throughout the weekend. Will definitely request her next time I am out of town!
Sarah was just what we had hoped for in a dog sitter. She was warm and friendly, responded to communication quickly, and was very accommodating to our schedule. She was also so sweet to our dogs and showed them a wonderful time, taking them to the dog park and keeping the cozy. She is now our go to dog sitter.
