Sara Brueske has been training dogs for over 15 years, and has experienced a large variety of breeds and sports during that time. After graduating as a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner in 2011, she jumped into the professional dog training world. Sara believes in positive reinforcement not only for dogs, but for their handlers as well. Her biggest joy in training is watching a handler and dog become partners and grow as a team. Currently, she is active in the sports of disc dog, agility, mondioring and dock diving as well as being a trick dog enthusiast. Sara and her dogs demonstrate the sports of disc, agility and dock diving in over 200 dog sport shows for the public each year at Purina Farms in Grey Summit, MO and they compete nationwide. Having just recently re-entered the competition disc world, Sara and her dogs earned the titles of 2016 UpDog International Finals Champion and Southern National Disc Champion for 2016. Rescue is also a huge part of Sara's life; she is continuously helping dogs in need by fostering, transporting and through training consultations.

Great class Sara! Good content and great feedback for gold students.  I learned a lot! Thank you!          

Sara, you were awesome. Thanks for making me take time off from the other parts of our business to train my youngest dog some really cool tricks. Some are new to me, even after all these years. But please, stop saying 4 feet and say, ALL feet ;) Tripod Cha-Cha-Cha thanks you too!
