About Photo 2Sarah Tripp White is a certified, professional dog trainer serving St. Pete, FL and surrounding areas. Sarah is the former Vice President and Membership Co-Chair of The National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors (NADOI). She is certified by NADOI ( instructor #1118 ), the oldest certifying association in the country, requiring one of the most rigorous instructor tests in the USA. 

She has successfully trained over one thousand dogs and their humans. Sarah began working with dogs in 2007 as a volunteer family dog trainer and group class instructor for a major local shelter in the Tampa Bay area after graduating from their intensive hands on six week dog trainer program. In the summer of 2008 Sarah was asked to manage and serve as head trainer for a large established dog day care and obedience training center in Pinellas County, FL. Within months she was asked to partner in the business and eventually took over as sole owner-operator of the St Petersburg location in 2009. From the start Sarah established a reputation for reliability, safety, cleanliness and supervision with successful dog training programs and a focus on customer service. These standards propelled the facility into a top spot among the most reliable and desirable day care and training establishments in Pinellas County while under her care. Sarah sold the business in 2012 to down-size and devote her self full time to her passion for dog training. She is now owner and head trainer of Tripp’s Dog Training St. Pete.

Owning and acting as owner- operator of a full service day care and training facility for five years afforded Sarah a level of hands on experience with canine group management and obedience training that has become invaluable to the success of her training programs.

Now after 15 years of daily hands on experience and the successful training of thousands of dogs, you can count on Sarah to provide you with a wide range of services and a highly professional training experience.

Tripp’s Dog Training is located in St. Petersburg, Fl. We offer dog training services in St. Pete and the surrounding communities of Pinellas County, FL.

Sarah is a certified NADOI instructor (#1118), former Vice President of the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors, has contributed training articles to the Wag Mag pet magazine, served as behavior consultant to a local rescue and is recommended by local veterinary and day care facilities.

“I spoke with several dog trainers before choosing Sarah Tripp. Sarah had the best understanding of what I was looking for (she took the time to listen) and she delivered! It has been four months since my Wheaton Terrier completed training. Now, Keeva is the “dog-celeb” with all my neighbors. He sits and waits calmly at and in the elevator no matter how "... READ MORE
