Fun and Sports Training


Training for Sports is a great way to build a strong bond with your dog.  It gives you focus, improves your training skills beyond what you may have thought possible and is incredible fun too!  If you have a smart dog, they will be delighted to get their teeth into the challenges of training for sports.  You don’t have to be interested in competing to have fun teaching new skills.  Read about the many benefits for both you and your dog here.

“I went to Sarah for help with competitive obedience and while I received great help with this I also learnt how to train the dog as a “whole being,” learning about environmental, physical and mental stimulus and to become more of a team in our everyday lives.

Her positive training methods are great and she always has a solution for any problem that arises. I am so pleased with Sarah’s training methods that I am going to her with my new dog as well.”
