  • Welcome to Rewards Dog Training!

    Whatever age, breed, size or shape I can help you and your pet build a lifelong, happy and positive relationship. I specialise in group social sessions and 1-2-1 training at home for those dogs who don’t do well in a class situation.  Behaviour consultations also available.

    Based in the wonderful Surrey Hills, I cover Surrey and Sussex areas including Cranleigh, Guildford, Godalming, Woking and Horsham. 

  • I am now back doing 1-2-1 home visits and training courses under the government guidelines having completed my Covid-19 awareness course.  

    In August I will be launching four social sessions running each Sunday morning at a new external venue in Shamley Green.  Places will be limited to 4 dogs (with one owner) per session and booking will be required in advance.

    Check back for the new website and details of the new sessions.

  • I'm Sara Bridgeman and I've been passionate about dogs since childhood.  Over the years, I've had many different types of dogs including some with very challenging characters and quirks!  It was through my love of working with my own dogs that I decided to become a dog trainer.  Now I'm delighted to have relocated to the Surrey Hills and I'm hoping to bring a new style of training to Surrey and the surrounding areas.

  • As a listed trainer I run courses during the year including Bronze, Silver and Gold. These courses are more formal but also we try to make them fun. Email me for more details and dates of the next courses.  Details of the scheme are available from The Kennel Club.

  • Forthcoming Sessions



    Small Dog Social Session

    A chance to have some socialisation after lock down for small dogs only.  Learn how to introduce your dogs to new things and other dogs as well as a little off lead play at a private enclosed venue.



    Teenage Tearaway session

    Adolescents and older pups learn to play nice, walk nicely and behave well around other people and dogs.  



    Puppy Playtime

    A chance for young pups to learn to play nicely with others in a controlled and relaxed environment.



    Reactive Rovers

    Got a dog who lunges and barks at other dogs and people? Come along and learn body language to help you negate these situations and manage to get your dog back on side.

  • Thinking of getting a dog?

    If you're thinking of getting a dog I'm happy to come along and offer a pre-puppy home visit to help you choose what sort of pup might be good for you and your lifestyle.  Most people call me when they already have the puppy but a chat and a chance to puppy proof your home would be a chance to get some more advice about dog ownership.
