I have a family of five dogs of various shapes and sizes. 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.
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.
Give me a call or preferably drop me an email if you would like to talk about your pet
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 & Canine Enrichment Officer
(Evesham, Hampton, Chadbury and Offenham)
I share my home with a dog, two cats, and a hamster, which needless to say keeps me fairly busy. I love being out walking with my cocker spaniel, Simba, as this is best time for bond-building and fun!
My background is in pet nutrition, and I've always been passionate about canine and feline behaviour and welfare. I believe every pet should be treated with kindness and encouragement, which is why I will always treat your dog as if it were my own.

Trainer & Admin Wiz
Occasional Senior Hound Hiker & Canine Enrichment Officer
(Evesham & Offenham)
I have been working with HH for over four 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.
My role in the team now is to keep the admin side on track with Sarah's every growing list of commitments. I also run things for Sarah when she goes away, taking the HH mobile and ensuring you still receives the same excellent service in her absence.
I am also 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.
