Who We Are

Sara Steiner, Owner


I have had the privilege of sharing my life with dogs for over 20 years. I volunteered with my local SPCA for a decade, and that’s where my love for dogs blossomed. I started out in the cat room where I was comfortable and slowly migrated to socializing and walking dogs and that’s when I was hooked.

At the time I was finishing my college degree and found a career in the environmental field (my other passion). I was able to combine my love of the outdoors, science and public service managing and educating citizen volunteers, but I’ve always known I would come back to the animal world, and my big motivation was our most recent rescue, Finn. 

Finn had a tough start to life. He has taught me so much about patience, connection, behavior, and confidence. While we were struggling through puppyhood and adolescence, I was struggling to find a support system to help me deal with my struggles and feelings of failure as a dog guardian. I decided to embark on the journey of building a place where we celebrate and share the connections we have with our dogs in a positive and safe environment and support each other through the ups and downs of dog guardianship. I believe dogs are family and are an integral part of our emotional and physical well-being, and I can't think of a better way to give back to them, than to provide a safe space to further their well-being. A space where we support our dogs and each other by providing a sense of community and connection with, through and for our dogs.

I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity to share Canine Connection with the community and am looking forward to welcoming paws and people!
