The non-treat based methods make our positive attitudes more reinforcing to our dog than anything else. Since the course, we have a stronger bond with our rescued companion and have seen the longevity of our Trainer’s methods in our everyday lives. The training is easy, sensible, and gives you a great understanding of dog and owner behaviour. We HIGHLY recommend the dog school to dog owners in our community. Thanks Saro!

So you want your dog to be the best behaved dog ever? Well, go no further and take a big breath. First of all, I have learned that training is a life long journey with your dog not a 6week course that magically turns your dog into Lassie. There is no such thing. Saro’s courses take you step by step and progressively you will learn how to communicate with your dog. Every human that trains their dog has a different time line and Saro’s courses set you up for success with learning basic commands that builds a strong foundation. This foundation will allow you to communicate with your dog and lead you and best friend towards a stronger bond. I have learned so much and feel proud of my dog and continue to learn more. It is a wonderful journey and a gift we as dog owners have been given. Whatever you put into your dog he or she will give it back a hundred times more.

Saro uses a great system for training dogs. His system requires our self-discipline and because of his lessons we now understand how important our role is in creating a well-balanced dog. We have noticed a big improvement in Gunner’s “obedience”.

I am so thankful to Saro for his instruction, patience, persistence and knowledge. I was ready to” give up” until I met Saro and saw that his training works. I am very grateful to Saro and would recommend his obedience training course to every dog owner.

An excellent dog training course that explains human and dog psychology. Saro’s techniques explain dog training in easy steps.

Haida & Bob Siegmann and Banjo

A couple of years ago our family got a 6-1/2 month old Aussie Shepherd. He had never been socialized with anybody or anything other than his immediate dog family…it also seemed like he may have been separated from his mom at a too early age! Our high energy pup was exactly what we wanted, but we did not bargain on the anxiety he had from all the new experiences (every experience).

Without Saro’s help and training there is no doubt in our minds that Banjo would not be where he is today. Banjo and our family have excelled because of Saro’s training classes and our training and understanding of our dog’s needs. Banjo goes to playcare as well, which has helped with dog-to-dog skills, and our peace of mind knowing that people we trust are not only taking care of Banjo while we are at work, but doing it in a way that is consistent with our training methods. We feel very fortunate to have been recommended to Jonah’s Ark.

Saro presents a straight- forward approach to training. The knowledge gained will help us every day with our dog! Saro’s love for the dogs really shows.

The best dog training ever! My dog’s life will be so much better because of Saro. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The week by week training of new commands – and practice at home worked to turn an unruly lab into a calmer and more obedient pet!

Ash with Kobe

Saro is a great trainer with a unique method that teaches dogs everyday commands with no treats and only with a good communication system. After completing the course my dog has been following my commands without a treat.
