My name is Sara Paulik, and I am a life long dog owner and animal lover. I was bitten by the dog training bug in 2004, when I started training for Petco in Gig Harbor. After a few years teaching several group classes per week, I went out on my own to pursue a career in dog training. I taught group classes and private lessons for several years, before leaving the industry to stay home with my three kids. So much has changed since I first started out, and I am so excited to be a part of this new wave of positive reinforcement training 2.0. I am obsessed with canine behavior and how dogs learn, so I am always researching new methods and ideas. I love that there is so much focus now on giving dogs choices, meeting their needs and enriching their lives. My current focus is on early puppy socialization and canine enrichment. Two things that I feel pet dogs don't receive enough of. I am happy to be back in the saddle and cannot wait to meet you and your dog!
