Sarah DeMerle, ABC Certified Dog Trainer
My name is Sarah DeMerle and I am the owner of 716 Dog Pack, a dog walking service in Buffalo, NY that specializes in the benefits of pack-walking. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a strong passion for all things dog-related and have been motivated to turn that passion into something that can help other dog lovers keep their pets active, social and well-behaved.
Prior to starting 716 Dog Pack, I became a certified dog trainer through the Animal Behavior College, where I externed with the Dog Days of Buffalo and apprenticed with Tyler Muto at K9 Connections. I also spent some time volunteering with Diamonds in the Ruff, an incredible animal rescue organization based in Niagara County. Each of these opportunities has added value to my growing career and provided me with hands-on experience working with dogs at various behavior levels.
For those who are unfamiliar, group dog walking, otherwise known as “pack-walking,” is just as the name suggests; one leader walking a pack of dogs at once. Not only is this a great way to get your pet the physical exercise he needs, but it encourages positive social behaviors and provides mental stimulation as the pack learns to work together. Not only do the dogs love it, but I continue to get great feedback from my clients.
