Sarah Mills, General Manager

Sarah became a member of the JHH team from the ground up, bringing with her years of experience and expertise.  Sarah is an instrumental part of making Just Happy Hounds the best place in Birmingham for both you and your dog!

"This is not a job for me, it is my passion. Loving every fur baby that comes through door as my own is what brings me the most joy."

Sarah is a part of the Birmingham Auxiliary, which she loves deeply and a proud member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) where she is certified in behavioral training.  Her other credentials include certifications via Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program that serves as a model for programs around the world and is a good starting point for more advanced training and consideration as a therapy dog.  Specific CGC certifications include AKC CGC, Urban CGC, Puppy CGC Trainer and AKC Good Citizen Evaluator.
