Hi, My name is Sarah McMurdo IACP CDT CTDI and I'm the head trainer at Paws Forward in Ontario Canada. I specialize in advanced obedience and service dog training.
I have been training dogs for the last 20 years.
We see all of our former and current training clients as family members and will work with you to create the dog of your dreams.
I have experience with all breeds and sizes of dogs and enjoy working with all of them. From high drive German Shepherds to doodles to yorkies.
