To have an obedient dog…
Honoring every family dog with balance in love and leadership
Sarah Prescott grew up raising dogs and watched some succeed wonderfully while others struggled horribly to learn appropriate behavior. She came to realize it takes a lot of hard work to socialize and nurture obedience in a dog. While raising puppies in California for Guide Dogs for the Blind she gained deep satisfaction in teaching young pups to grow into well-socialized Guide Dogs.
Sarah started Dog Coach training programs when her youngest child was in 8th grade and she could revisit her early passion for dog training. To build the training programs at Dog Coach Sarah searched out and tested best-practices with her own dogs, focusing on the personal discipline and leadership absolutely essential to train a dog effectively. After sharing her love of dogs with training clients you can usually find Sarah planning a night out dancing.
Teaching sensible relationships to raise healthy dogs
Jonathan Prescott returned to his Beverly roots after time away at Umass-Amherst and The Landing School in Kennebunkport, Maine, where he learned the detail-oriented skill of wooden boat building. Inspired by his love of craftsmanship and the drive to maintain the finest yachts in the region he worked closely with clients on the North Shore during a 30-year career in boat yard management and customer service.
Jonathan started Dog Coach training programs with his wife Sarah to continue delighting clients and fulfill the needs of dog owners seeking to improve life with their pets. Having long ago set up housekeeping in a 2 to 3 dog family, Jonathan is passionate about how dog behaviors present an opportunity for personal change that can build a new relationship with a pet. When he is not off visiting his two college age children he loves to be out sailing with Sarah off Baker’s Island.
