Confident K9 

Improving the daily lives of humans and dogs through education


A Little Bit About Me

My Name is Sarah Bartley and I was born in England, I grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, mice & ​horses.  My mom taught me about mother nature and how we should co-exist with her & respect all creatures including the scary ones, like spiders & snakes.

In 2001, I ​quit my long time bank job, sold everything and set off to travel America, but t​hat's a whole other story.

I am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) 


I help humans understand and co-exist with their dogs. I love my life and I'm passionate about what I do.  We are all dealing with different challenges on a daily basis. Every person's situation is unique and so are the dogs​ that we share our lives with.


These days you'll find me running around rural Texas in my boots, with my dogs.  Home is a small house on 14 acres, kept dog friendly by my wonderful partner Thomas.

Everyday the dogs in my life teach me patience and to enjoy the now.  I'm always studying everything and anything related to dogs. 


That's me in a nutshell, I can't wait to meet you and your dog.

Now that you've taken the first step and found me, take the next step and give me a call or enter your contact information in the box so I can help you, help your dog.
