When it comes to minding manners, your dog’s Training Matters
Sara Matters of Training Matters LLC delivers private professional dog training on a schedule that works for you either remotely or at her facility in Brattleboro. She also offers classes at her facility.
Sara focuses on both dog and household, creating a plan that accounts for what each family member can realistically contribute to teaching the essential behaviors you want as efficiently as possible. She also advises on proper confinement techniques and equipment to set you and your dog up for success. Additionally, she coaches people on the skills they need move through life with their dog.
Her goal: helping dogs and families learn what they need to live well together.
