Laila is a very smart cattle dog mix...it quickly became apparent to us that there was a great chance that Laila could be smarter than two humans combined.
I’m still in awe of all that Sara was able to teach us that day. Not only have we been able to become better humans for Laila, but we also use what we learned from Sara with the foster dogs that come through our home. Spending the money for Sara to get us started on the right foot will forever be one of the best decisions we made. We will forever recommend Sara Sokol.

Sara brings a world of enthusiasm and support to her classes that make for an exciting learning environment for you and your dog.
Our over-reactive rescue pit bull, Eliza, was welcomed with open arms. Sara’s sympathetic, reassuring instruction helped us to feel comfortable in an environment that would otherwise be a source of stress. Not only did Sara address the reactivity Eliza struggles with, she also introduced us to fun, new activities such as agility equipment, tricks, and nose-works! Enroll in a class; your dog will love you for it.
I could not have asked a more knowledgeable trainer for the first class I ever took with my dog, Buck.
Sara never made me feel bad about his behavior and always encouraged me by giving me tips and tricks to enforce better behavior.
In addition, her classes are super fun! She's upbeat and happy. It's clear that Sara loves teaching.
Sara Sokol is a trainer who's combination of knowledge, ability, and common sense approach with people makes her the kind of dog trainer that every dog owner should seek out. She uses positive reinforcement to teach essential commands, provides information regarding dog learning and training, helps provide methods to prevent behavior problems and was able to help people who had dogs with existing behavior problems.

I worked with Sara at the Pasadena Humane Society. She is not only a wonderful person but also has a great knack for reading dogs as well as people.
Sara's classes are well thought out and she makes them a lot of fun. She is very knowledgeable about teaching obedience as well as modifying a dog's underlying behavior. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone looking for help with a dog!
