Sarah Volunteers with Delta

Sarah has been in the industry for 10 years now, she started “Hound Habits” from nothing, a now flourishing business. Her love and compassion for animals started with horses. She began riding at the age of 5 and owned her first horse by 8. She competed in dressage and not long after that owned her second horse which she still has today, Philadelphia. Sarah has recently also purchased her second horse, a 1 y/o clydesdale to train and break herself. Sarah got into the dog training industry when her first dog ‘Sirius’ had food aggression and dominance issues with her (then puppy) & current Delta dog ‘Turais’. Turais was mauled many times and the initial fear was that Turais could never be social again. He is now a demo dog and volunteer’s with Sarah in hospitals and schools. Sarah continues to grow with the industry and loves to learn new things with her motto being “the more I learn the less I know!” as dog training never ends for the human, ever! Here are just some of the things Sarah has so far in her resume in this industry.
