Trainers' profiles

Sarah is passionate about animal welfare, behaviour and training. After completing a BSc in Zoology, Sarah wanted to focus on canine and feline behaviour and welfare so completed a master’s degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln. Sarah then worked in research roles and for their behaviour clinic while teaching dog training classes for a variety of providers. Sarah then set up as a canine and feline Behaviourist and Trainer in East Sussex giving behaviour consultations by veterinary referral and providing dog training classes and one to one sessions. Following this Sarah worked for Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare before becoming an Instructor for the assistance dog charity Support Dogs and is now very pleased to join the Dogs Trust team as Head Coach in Doncaster.

 

Sarah is APDT accredited and enjoys attending conferences and seminars about dog training, behaviour and welfare to keep up to date.

 

In her spare time, Sarah enjoys adventures with her young son, her goofy border collie called Harvey, and her quirky cat called Hamlin.

Ellie has completed a Bsc (Hons) Degree in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training and has extensive experience raising and training puppies. Ellie volunteered as a Puppy Walker for Guide Dogs for the Blind during her gap year and this inspired her to further her knowledge of canine behaviour and training. Since graduating, Ellie volunteered with Support Dogs and gained a lot of essential knowledge observing and working with their trainers.

 

Ellie has also worked as a kennel assistant at a local rescue centre. This is where she developed a passion for getting dogs ready for their forever homes by training them to become confident, well-mannered members of our society. Ellie has also run her own home-based dog sitting business for three years which has given her experience with dogs of different breeds and temperaments. She also discovered her favourite breeds in Lurchers and Vizslas!

 

During her spare time, Ellie enjoys horse riding in the countryside on Oliver and is looking forward to one day adopting her own dog to join them!

Helen Wright

Helen is really passionate about training that is good fun, interesting and welfare friendly. Helen has worked for 13 years in the assistance dog industry – firstly as a guide dog trainer and then  with support dogs.  Her dog, Fidget, is a lively, fun loving beagle x pug and is a much loved part of the family who is helping Helen’s 2 young children to learn the responsibility of dog ownership and teaching them compassion towards another living being.

 

Helen is currently studying for her foundation degree in applied Canine Behaviour and Training through Bishop Burton College, and she regularly attends training conferences in her spare time.

 

Vikki Hyde

Growing up with dogs and having never been without a dog in her life, Vikki has always known that she wanted to work with them! 

Vikki has a BSc (Hons) degree in Animal Behaviour from the University of Chester where she completed work based learning with sniffer dogs and carried out her dissertation at a local dog training school.

After graduating, Vikki worked closely with a Canine Trainer and Behaviourist. She initially volunteered but soon she was running puppy classes, carrying out 1-2-1 training sessions and assisting with behaviour consultations. Alongside this she also ran her own dog walking business. She greatly enjoys working with a large range of dogs and helping them and their owners to build a positive bond and live a happy life together!

Vikki is currently studying a diploma in Canine Nutrition and enjoys keeping up with the latest dog training, welfare and behaviour research. In her spare time, she loves going on long hikes with her border collie, Molly, and sprollie, Bella, who always put a smile on her face with their funny antics!
