Sarah's Dog Training
Polesworth, Warwickshire(2 Reviews)
I run and am the sole owner of Sarah's Dog Training & Pet Services and I have been working with dogs for several years, both as a dog walker and a dog trainer. I am qualified with The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and am committed to following their code of ethics, shown below. I am fully insured, canine first aid trained and a member of the Pet Professional Guild.
I began my career in the dog industry working part-time at a kennels, became a self-employed dog walker and am now a full-time dog (owner) trainer with walking on the side. I first became interested in dog training and behaviour when my German Shepherd Dog Bowser became reactive and I wasn't sure how to go about helping. Everything I was doing seemed to be making it worse, so I began researching, attending training sessions and courses until I qualified. I am continuing to expand my knowledge all the time, there is always something new to learn.
I don't employ anyone so it's just me, you and your pet. I am your first and only port of call so there is no confusion or miscommunication and you know who will be turning up. I have a fully equipped and fitted-out dog walking van with separate compartments to keep your dogs safe and secure and I upload daily photos so that you can see what your dog has been up to. I pride myself with my fast communication and understanding so you'll never find yourself with any unanswered questions. Your pet is in good hands and I am always just a phone call away.

Sarah's Dog Training Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the progress the animals make in both walking and training. Previously shy dogs now interact happily in a group, some become fit and trim and mentally happy because they are able to get out and have fun. I have made lasting bonds with my customers, old and new and treat all of the dogs as if they were my own.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I like working for myself as I pride myself on my reliability and professionalism. I rarely take time off and hate letting people (and dogs) down. Since being a dog walker, I have trained with The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and am now progressing and starting group classes and 1:1 training.
Why should our clients choose you?
It's just, me, you and your dog. I don't hire anyone so you only have one person to trust and communicate with. I walk dogs with confidence and they pick up on that, I would go as far as to say dogs walk better when in a group. I am reliable, have many 5 star reviews and am Canine First Aid trained.
I use modern up-to-date positive reinforcement training techniques to help you get the best out of your dog.
