I have a family of three dogs. My gang keep me busy in my limited spare time with training, walking, competing in Breed shows, Rally Obedience & Obreedience.
I also have a Fell pony called Billy, and a parrotlet named Larry.
I am extremely passionate about providing the best possible care for your pets and treat all pets
as my own.
I am here to help you learn from your dogs too, as I'm sure you know its usually the owners who need the training and not the dogs!
I am always constantly learning more and regularly update my skills by attending various training courses.
If ever a trainer tells you they know everything, they are lying. Dogs are complicated emotional animals and until they can speak our language, I'm sure we will always be finding new things about them.
Most issues with dogs stem from a lack of, or a strain on the all important bond between you and them, and it's simply formulating a strategy to help you get a better bond than ever before.
Our Lifestyles have evolved much faster than dogs have in recent decades. Various methods I have picked up along the way will help them cope with modern human life.

Hikes Team Manager
Hound Hiker & Canine Enrichment Officer
(Pershore, Charlton & Fladbury areas)
I am a country gal who has had dogs and horses for as long as I can remember. We currently have hens, a guinea pig, two cats and my beloved working cocker spaniel, Loxley.
Most of my spare time is spent walking over Bredon Hill, jogging/canicross with my dog and I have become slightly addicted to agility training and competing with him too!
Hound Hiker, Pet Sitter & Canine Enrichment Officer

I’ve loved all animals, especially dogs, for as long as I can remember, I currently have one of my own plus two cats.
I already had previous professional dog walking experience before joining HH and I’m excited to be part of the team and work with dogs again!
In my spare time, I love to do various arts and crafts such as crochet, digital art and photography.
Many courses scheduled as part of my professional development with Hound Helpers
Trainer & Admin Wiz
Occasional Senior Hound Hiker & Canine Enrichment Officer
(Evesham & Offenham)
I have been working with HH for over five years now, in various roles. I used to assist in grooming and also specialise in puppy visits and smaller group walks. I a standard poodle girl called Bella and a lovely moggy at home. I have been training to be a trainer for many years now and enjoy building on my knowledge.
Having been a senior nursing Sister for most of my life I am really enjoying applying my natural caring skills to the dogs in my care.
At the end of 2018 I stepped away from Hikes due to my health. However I do still step in on occasion when needed.
I really enjoying assisting Sarah in the Classes and Workshops that we run, my favourite being the Reactive Rover course, as I too have had a reactive dog in the past so it's great to help others in their journeys to success through this.
