Hello, I’m Sarah

At the start of my career, I was lucky enough to be mentored by, and then work alongside, John Fisher – the original ‘dog whisperer’.

As a result of John’s experience, knowledge and support, I succeeded in building a career that had my heart and soul at its very centre. Nearly 30 years on, and I am still just as passionate about helping dogs, cats and their owners, using kind, force-free methods, and getting great results using the science and art of positive reinforcement.

I help others to fulfill their potential as trainers and behaviourists, through education, coaching, mentoring and occasional hand-holding, (because sometimes the very best trainers seem to lack confidence in themselves).

The reality is that to be a brilliant behaviourist, you need to be an exceptional dog trainer. And to be a superlative trainer, you need to understand behaviour inside and out.

I’m here to help and guide you with both.


Learn what it means to work smarter and live better with regular insight, training tips and pet-centric perspectives delivered from me to you.


Sarah is the author of more than twenty behavioural and training books, booklets and videos including the best selling book, Clever Dog.

My Mission

Dogs are family!

My mission is to educate, inspire and nurture people, their dogs, and the professionals that support them.

Acting with integrity, knowledge and skill, so that every dog and human team can realise their full potential, and have the relationship that they have always wanted.

To support and give confidence to those who know in their heart of hearts that they are a trainer*.

*Oh, and if you own a dog, you are a trainer.
