I am so happy to have found Sara! I am so impressed with her dog training skills and I can't wait to learn from her as I train my puppy. Sara is so knowledgable and takes dog training seriously. She knows what she is doing! Once again, I'm so happy and relieved to have found her.

We were nervous to leave our puppy when we went on vacation for a week. Sara made me feel at ease and comfortable with leaving her. She kept her on our schedule and Willow was able to play with all the other dogs that she had. We ended up in traffic on our way home and Sara was so kind and understanding as we were trying to make it back. We had a great experience ...

We have been very pleased with the care Sara has given to our young mini Schnauzer. She obviously loves dogs and gives excellent care. We knew that while our dog was under Sara's care, he would be well cared for and also receive training that would help him be better behaved. We strongly recommend Sara.

Please understand there are always risks when combining dogs from various backgrounds and training. All dogs in the care of BAK9 must have their puppy shots and wearing current identification/rabies tags attached to a secure, flat, nylon or leather collar. Current vaccination records and proof of spay/neuter (from your veterinarian) must be on file at time of service. We will not admit any dog without proper identification/rabies tags, vaccination records, spay/neuter documentation, and signed agreements. All dogs must be healthy and free of any contagious illnesses. Any dog exhibiting symptoms of illness or injury (sneezing, coughing, wheezing, runny eyes or nose, vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, loss of appetite, limping, etc.) will not be admitted. We are happy to refer local veterinarians with boarding facilities. All dogs must be on a leash when entering/leaving BAK9 and its premises as per city ordinance and for the safety of all animals and humans in the vicinity. Dogs must be potty/house trained (no urinating or eliminating indoors, no chewing, biting, or jumping on people or furniture) and crate trained (no whining, barking, bolting out of crates, or attempting to escape the crate). If they not, they must successfully complete training prior to any boarding services. We feed adult dogs (over 6 months) two-times/day and puppies (under 6 months) three-times/day. If your dog requires a special diet, you (the owner) are responsible for preparing it ahead of time, portioned out for each meal (AM/PM). Any dog left after 3 days of the scheduled pickup without contact from the owner is considered abandoned and will be surrendered to local animal control.

When Sara watches your pet

As a professional dog trainer, this is my livelihood and I spend the majority of my day with the dogs and my family. A typical day at BAK9 includes plenty of potty breaks, structured meal times, afternoon siestas, multiple supervised play times, and routine walks. Your dog will have plenty of time to practice basic manners and social skills. We live on .24 acres of flat land covered in grass. The backyard is entirely fenced at 6' high with a double gate for extra security. Our 16 camera security system monitors all indoor & outdoor activity 24/7.
