If you are considering collaborating with a dog trainer for a service dog, there is no better than Sarah Gill. For years, I have had the goal of getting a service dog to assist me with medical alert and mobility assistance. Due to my hectic college and work schedule, owner-training was not an option. I needed an expert. Training programs with pre-trained service dogs didn’t sound appealing either. After all, I am unique and so are my needs. I need a dog trained to fit my specific needs. After months of researching service dog trainers (a specific speciality that not many dog trainers are capable of), a dog trainer friend of mine recommended Sarah Gill.
As a person who has had her share of health issues, Sarah understood what my needs were. Together, we traveled hundreds of miles to find the perfect dog, Cinder. Through the process, she was always available for any questions I had. During about a year of training, she visited my office, my school, and met my other dog children to help see the specific environments that Cinder would be working most often. She loves my baby like her own, and she trains dogs like she would train her own service dog- with patience, love, and strength. I cannot say enough good things.
Sarah also is not shy about advocating for my needs even when I am scared to! Having a service dog means navigating other human’s ignorance with the right attitude. Through her tireless work and our public outings, we worked together to get both Cinder AND myself ready for being a service dog/ handler team. Any questions on how great Sarah is? Text me. Please. I cannot say enough good things.Ashley Guidry, Master's Student, Communication Studies
This page lists testimonials from my many satisfied clients. We are still updating it with additional client reviews; more added regularly. Until they are all transferred, you can find more testimonials on my Facebook business page.
My clients have written me many five-star reviews over the years. I think the breadth of these speaks for itself. My testimonials cover a broad range of dog training areas. They include obedience training, behavior modification work and of course feedback from my service dog clients. Does a review of my work with any particular client dog resonate with you? Does as case sound similar to what is going on with your dog? For transferred Facebook business page reviews, I added a link to my client's Facebook profile. Feel free to contact them. If they want to discuss their training experience with a 'stranger' is up to them. But I know many will be happy to share more about their experiences of working with me.
I lived and trained dogs in Texas for many years and only recently moved to California. As a result, most reviews are still related to my wonderful Texas clients.

Sarah recently devoted many, many hours of her time helping us with an animal aggressive bite dog. I cannot thank her enough for all the hours of free training time she committed in helping us guide, manage and train. I will ever be indebted to her for all the tips and tools that were provided. I love you, Sarah, and wish you great success as you continue to move forward. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will be sending people your way and will use you someday when I adopt again!Lisa Thorne Brazell, Auditor for Office of Compliance
Sarah is the most amazing trainer. I have four rescue dogs including one with physical challenges and one that was abandoned in an alley and very scared of people. All my dogs were taught basic obedience, tricks and proper behavior by Sarah. People always compliment me on my well-behaved dogs.
If you are looking for a trainer to help with behavior modification, puppy training or higher level performance; contact Sarah.Roxanne Schwartz, Director of Retail Chains
I truly cannot recommend Sarah and her company enough! I reached out to her to help me with a dog I was interested in adopting who growled and gnared her teeth at me the first time I went to see her. Sarah’s expertise gave me the confidence to get her and she taught me so much about dog behavior and how to respond. I will forever be grateful to her for all of her help! She’s amazing!Lynn Shaffer, Dental Hygienist
