Sarah came to the house to give 3 lessons to our 6 month old puppy.
Immediately after the first lesson we could see the difference.
Our puppy and ourselves enjoyed every minute and can't thank Sarah enough. Would highly recommend.
We will now attend her group training sessions going forward.

Thank you for your kind words, look forward to seeing you Saturday mornings.

Sarah is a fantastic and effective dog trainer. She is very patient and calm, and so her classes have a lovely, calm atmosphere, where all kinds of dogs can quieten down and focus on their owners. I am learning a lot of useful techniques for training my dog, that I can take away from the classes. Thanks to Sarah's guidance, we're making some really good progress More...

I rescued a dog from Cyprus and have been taking him to Sarah at Hampstead Norreys village hall for a few weeks now. He is learning very quick and have seen a great improvement in him. Sarah is very patient and I love her relaxed way of training. Would definitely recommend More...

Sarah is amazing she completely helped us transform our Hugo to a willing happy puppy after three private lessons. We were at our wits end when we first met Sarah but her calm confident approach helped us so much to understand that it’s not only the puppy but also the owners that need training!!Thank you Sarah you are fantastic at what you do to give the owners and puppy a happy and confident life. We will continue our training at your fabulous puppy class every week. More...

Thank you so much for your kind words, I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday to continue your training.

Sarah is a very patient instructor, working with a group of dogs or puppies who learn at different paces is a real skill. My Yorkshire Terrier is an obstinate little livewire, with Sarah's experience, knowledge and understanding I am confident we will achieve the results necessary to make her a lovely and happy obedient little dog.

Thank you Sarah for your help guidance and expertise all done in a very calm manner. One to one training has really helped. We can see a massive difference in our lovely Jack Russell. He is much calmer and responding to all the training. We can now concentrate on moving this forward with practise but know Sarah is there to contact should we need any help. We have more confidence in ourselves to train our rescue dog. Definitely recommend. More...

I really enjoyed dog training. Really useful guidance, I was able to ask lots of questions, my dog learnt so quickly and is now doing really well. I'm so glad I had private lessons, it's amazing at what 3 lessons can do to help a dog. I really recommend Sarah, she was great. More...

Thank you so much for your kind review, so glad you enjoyed it and I’m pleased with Lola’s progress

Sarah was calm and made me feel at ease. She did not judge me or my unruly dog. Sarah offered good sensible advice which after 3 lessons and chats made me feel in control. Zac is by no means the finished article but now I have control back so now it down to me. More...

Thank you so much for you review, keep up with the training, it was a pleasure to work with you Avril and of course Zac

Sarah is a very calm, knowledgeable and helpful dog trainer. She listens and finds solutions for your individual situation rather than quoting the ‘dog training’ manual. I would recommend her to anyone looking for advice & ideas with any dog training issues. More...

I called Sarah for help with my 8 month old beagle. She was constantly jumping up and chewing everything. After just 3 days we noticed a big difference, the jumping up was reducing and she was following basic commands. Would highly recommend Sarah for all dog training. More...

Sarah helped me with my cockapoo puppy. I was really struggling with my puppy training. When Sarah came over we managed to get results immediately. Sarah guided us step by step all the way. I would certainly recommend Sarah for puppy training. Thank you Sarah. More...

I contacted Sarah to help me with my year old dog, who although lovely wouldn't come when he was called and pulled on his lead. I met Sarah and she patiently listened to me and gave me some great advice on how to deal with my problems. After four 1:1 sessions, things are much better and I've improved too! :) Great experience to tap into expertise particularly if like me this is your first dog. Thank you Sarah, I'm delighted with our progress. More...

Sarah expertly guided me and my older (rescue) puppy through the basics so that we could, after 4 weeks, join the 'big' class. She is methodical and patient and has some great tricks up her sleeve - such as sausage! Thank you Sarah More...

Sarah does a fantastic job with the puppies she helped us with our scatty and very easily distracted puppy, has a lot of patience! Sarah truly has passion for training and it shows with every interaction she has with the dogs. Her techniques really work and are easy to apply. We would highly recommend using Sarah. More...

Sarah was very friendly and immediately put us and our dog at ease. She taught us some basic training, showing us what we should do and supporting us when we tried it for ourselves without judging. As a result we have seen positive improvements in our dogs behaviour. I'd recommend Sarah for 1-1 dog training sessions for any dog behavioural issues you might have. More...

I started taking my puppy to classes in Chilton Foliat on a Weds evening where I met Sarah. I felt we had learnt so much and Winnie had come on really well. Winnie has her own mind at times and recall and manners outside these classes was testing us to the limit, so therefore we had Sarah come out to our house on a one to one basis. Sarah's calm and patient approach towards us paid off and we have been enjoying Winnie a lot more & walks have been significantly less stressful! More...

Q&A

I love seeing the dogs behaviour change, it makes me feel good knowing I have helped both dog and owner. Owners are pleased as they can see a big difference in their dogs behaviour in as little as a week. I get great satisfaction from my profession.

I instruct at 2 dog training clubs and I was getting great feedback from both. I was asked by both clubs to help owners on a one to one basis for behavioural needs. I am working towards my KCAI for dog training and behaviour. I feel I understand what dogs are feeling and why they show signs of unwanted behaviour. I am really interested in dog Psychology. Which then lead me to the behavioural side of dog training.

I have a calm and patient approach to owners and dogs, I talk through the behavioural problems you are experiencing then put a training plan into action. I only use positive reward based training. You are welcome to join us for a group session as they are drop in classes. I know coming along to the first session can be a little daunting, but you will be made to feel very welcome. Ask as many questions as you like, as I am here to help you and your dog.
I am friendly, patient and polite, I continue to update my knowledge by going to seminars, workshops and researching via the internet and books.
