My name is Sarah Bauer and I think anyone that knows me would say I am nuts about dogs.
I have been in love with them since my Nan had a border collie called Prince when I was about eight years old.
I wanted to set up a professional dog walking service that I would be happy to use myself.
So I became approved by Brighton and Hove Council as a professional dog walker and to abide by their code of conduct.
To be fully insured with the transportation of any dogs in my care and for them to be safe in individual cages with front and back locking doors.
I am also insured with Clivertons as a dog walker to allow up to six dogs to be off lead at any one time but only with the written consent of the dogs owners.
I also hold a full disclosure certificate with the Criminal Records Bureau and have also completed a canine first aid course.
Having been involved with many different family dogs over the years when we got Harry in 2004 I wanted to do things properly so booked him into a local training class.
That was it. The dog training bug got me and have spent the last ten years helping many different breeds of dog whilst working alongside Steph Berry of the APDT.
For four years teaching at puppy and adult dog training classes for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme.I completed training and have become an approved instructor within the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour.
I will also be taking classes as an instructor for Sussex County Dog Training at their new site Barking Success in Storrington which I am really excited about.
Classes at barking Success will include foundation agility, puppy and bronze obedience as well.
I haven’t looked back since I decided that I should be spending my life enjoying my job and took that scary yet exciting plunge to start my own business and do what I love the most.
Once you have made contact with me I will come and meet you and your dog.
If possible we will go for a walk together so I can see how your dog behaves when out with someone that he or she is familiar and comfortable with.
If you are happy for me to then walk your dog for you I shall forward a client form for you to fill in which will also have included the release form if you are happy for me to exercise your dog off lead,
All house keys are kept in a secure locked box with no address details on them.
All dogs must be fully vaccinated and up to date with their flea treatments.
