Sarah is no stranger to the world of dog training. When she was young her aunt and uncle took her under their wing at their canine services and training center and taught her the basics and animal care, with a special emphasis on golden retrievers and rottweilers. She became a junior dog handler at just 9 years old! Sarah developed a love for science education as she grew up, and in 2000 landed a job that combined her passions as an educator at the Houston Zoo. In her time there she has been lucky to share her enthusiasm for the natural world with guests, introducing them to different species while demonstrating positive reinforcement training with the Zoo’s ambassador animals. Sarah has 2 cats- Speaker Box and Yuki- and enjoys teaching them fun behaviors like rolling over and kennel training.
