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.‚Äč

Review of Sarah's Dog Training by Gabi Smith

Sarah has been an important part of Brenton's life since we got him as a puppy. She came to our house to discuss our needs and then did lunchtime home visits daily until I went on maternity leave. I would get daily text updates and Instagram posts.
Sarah clearly cares about the needs of all her dogs, as when she had a dog with her who didn't like staying in the van, she asked if she could bring them into the garden to play with Brenton who loves being with other dogs - all the dogs were winners on those days!
Since the baby, Brenton has joined group walks when I can't do a walk and we sometimes join the group when I can, also to socialise him.
Most recently we have been doing 1:1 training with Sarah, as Brenton's love of dogs isn't great when you're wearing a baby bjorn and he's bolted across a park! We are seeing great results and one of the nicest parts of training is seeing Brenton's joy when Sarah comes into the room. He clearly loves her as much as she loves him!

Sarah will shortly be moving to Tamworth and we will really miss her - but know that she will be just a phone call away for support and advice. If you are looking for first rate dog care in the Tamworth area, then you must contact Sarah before anyone else.

Sarah's Dog Training Q&A

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.
