When it comes to dog trainers, few had a bigger year than 2017 Greatmats National Dog Trainer of the Year - Sara Carson of The Super Collies.
Known as the 'America's Got Talent' finalist who built a name for herself and her dog, Hero, while living out of her car, Sara inspired people from all across the country to pursue their dreams.
Despite now being recognized as one of the top trick dog trainers in the world, she said, ''I don't think I've ever been nominated for an award before. ... Just the fact that some people take time out of their day to vote for me says I'm doing something right I guess. ... That support is really great.''
Sara spends most of her time on the road - as she has done for the last 3 years after leaving the training facility she had started in Canada at the age of 15. Aside from the performance side of her job, Sara's also helping others train their dogs through an app, called Puppr.
''When I was on the road in my car, I wanted a way to kind of reach out to people more so we came up with that thing and it's been a really really cool experience, getting people just emailing me and sending in their footage of their training, and I help them digitally,'' she said.
More than 3,800 total votes were cast in the 3rd Annual Greatmats National Dog Trainer of the Year Contest.
