Sierra Fruth

Chattanooga Dog Trainer

Sierra and her family have lived in Tennessee for almost eight years. Even as a child, Sierra had a passion for working with dogs; at the age of eleven, with the help of her parents, she created her own pet-sitting business where she was able to surround herself with different dog breeds on a daily basis. Sierra was involved in 4-H for several years, and although she has always been a big animal-lover, nothing compares to her passion for dogs.

Sierra dual-enrolled through her high school years and graduated at the age of seventeen. After graduation, she took a year to save money and explore her future. Her enthusiasm for working with dogs led her to the School for Dog Trainers, where she studied the intensive 24-week Master Dog Trainer program. Upon completing the program, Sierra was certified to train pet dogs, service dogs, search and rescue dogs and police and military K9s. Sierra graduated from her class as Valedictorian.

Sierra loves that her career as a professional dog trainer enables dogs of all kinds to reach their potential.

“Each and every dog is unique in their own way – just like you and I. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to dog training. 

My training is specifically tailored to each dog and its family. A majority of problems that we face as pet-owners are often due to a lack of both understanding and communication between human and dog. My passion as a dog trainer is to help each person speak the language of their dog, and in turn, unlock the incredible potential that dog has.”

Sierra is a professional member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP).

With their enhanced sense of smell, impeccable hearing and incredible stamina, dogs are often regarded as the one of the most valuable resources in search and rescue efforts.

At Highland Canine, we recognize the importance of training search and rescue dogs and offer comprehensive programs for handlers and dogs. 

Search and Rescue dogs can be trained in tracking, trailing, land or water cadaver, amongst several other skills. If you have a search and rescue dog you wish to train, or are interested in a SAR certification program, contact Sierra for more information!
