Summary: 

At Bridges Dog Training we invite our animals to be partners in learning. They are not just trainees to be molded to our will; they are participants. We do not force the animals to do anything they are not willing to do. Instead, we teach, encourage, and motivate by making the work fun and rewarding.

Bio: 

Sarah Owings, KPA CTP, is passionate about reaching the difficult dog, and specializes in using clicker training principles to help transform the lives of fearful or shy dogs. As the owner of Bridges Dog Training, co-creator of Cyber Dog Online, and a regular contributor to online training forums, she is known for her innovative approaches to tough behavior problems, and her compassionate and insightful teaching.

A speaker at ClickerExpo for the past three years, Sarah was also selected to serve as a Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) faculty member in 2015. She has presented webinars for the Society of Veterinary Behavior Technicians (SVBT) on the topics of emotions in training and shy dogs, and co-presented seminars with KPA faculty member and author of Chill Out Fido, Nan Arthur. Sarah’s popular YouTube channel features videos that showcase clicker training, exotic-animal training, life enrichment for puppies and dogs, and her clients’ success stories. She has written articles for Clean Run and Veterinary Technician magazines and blogs regularly on Wordpress about what she calls Brave Learning and the Art of Loving Dogs.

In addition to a lifetime of working and living with a wide variety of animals, Sarah has also had many years of experience as a kindergarten teacher where the joys and challenges of the classroom have fueled a passion for teaching, learning, and human connection as well. She lives in Los Angeles with her wonderfully supportive husband, Fred, her mom, Morgan, two rescue dogs, Zoë and Maya, four house rabbits, three cats, one dove, a tortoise, and an iguana named Spot.
