GUEST BIO

In 2013, Sara began working with her own service dog, Hero. Sara and Hero had their first televised appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, and they continue to captivate audiences all over the world. She acquired her celebrity dog trainer status after placing fifth on the season-12 finale of America’s Got Talent in 2017. Since then, Sara and Hero have filmed ‘A Genie’s Tale’ where Hero played Joe, the main protagonist. Sara has also made an appearance as a judge on ‘Puppy Bowl – The Summer Games’ as well as additional titles into the Discovery+ series. Partnering with a veteran service dog organization, Sara began to train service dogs for veterans with disabilities. Sara’s simplified teaching methods allowed her to create a team of trainers who train various dogs for veterans across the country.

Sara wrote an instructional book in 2022 called Super Dog Tricks. She also runs the most functional and user-friendly dog app on the market: PUPPR
