Sarah Lescault, Assistant Trainer at PupStart Day School for Puppies in North Yarmouth since 2015, recently earned her dog training certification, joining 27 other Certified Professional Dog Trainers, Knowledge-Assessed, in Maine. The test requires in-depth knowledge of instruction skills, learning theory, ethology, equipment and animal husbandry. CPDT-KAs are required to continue earning CEUs in order to remain certified.

She says that fully embracing the philosophy of positive reinforcement training has influenced her life and how she interacts with not just dogs, but people, too. Sarah’s knowledge, creativity, intelligence, dedication, patience and kindness weave together to make her a gifted and talented dog trainer.
