A contented dog means a happier home
You love your dog, but you don’t love the problem behaviors or poor manners that sometimes make her hard to live with. Professional dog trainer Sara Matters helps dogs and families learn what they need to live well together.
Training Matters helps you understand your pet’s needs, make simple changes to your household, and teach your four-legged family member essential behaviors. In addition to holding group classes, Sara provides dog training adapted to your specific environment and lifestyle. She provides dog training advice that makes your canine a true companion, not another chore.
A 2018 transplant to Vermont from New Jersey, where she was recommended by several veterinarians, dog walkers and groomers, Sara specializes in reward-based, positive reinforcement dog training to address common issues for the family dog. She has since become a recommended trainer by veterinarians, groomers and day care providers in Vermont. She trains in a spacious facility in West Brattleboro as well as outdoors on her farm.
