Hello, I'm Sara
Founder & Owner of Dharma Dog Training


I am passionate about helping pet parents and their dogs to a better, more enjoyable and calmer life together. I love having adventures with my dogs and want everyone to be able to enjoy a life filled with fun with their dog,  I am not the type of trainer that will judge you or tell you off for letting your dog sleep on your bed - mine sleep with me.   

They are a part of the family,  they are sentient beings just like us.  Why teach them using fear and punishment when we can teach them what we want.  Learning a deeper understanding of your dogs emotions is often a huge light bulb moment for many pet parents, leaning to 'Talk Dog' is a skill i teach all my students. Its a journey and one that will enrich your life and your dogs.  

I often help anxious and stressed out pet parents and my training is around supporting the human side as much as the dog training side of things.
