Hi, I’m Sarah Kitching. Dogs have been my life since I was 13 (I won’t tell you how old I am now), I live and breathe them and wouldn’t have it any other way.
When I had my 3 children, I decided “proper” work should be a part time thing and I should enjoy life more, giving me more time for my agility training and massage businesses. We moved to our DREAM house in October 2014 to allow me work from home and now live in a lovely farm in Easington with 11 acres.
In the following months I expanded my “doggy” business ato become a supplier of dog food and toys, I haven’t looked back since! Please visit our shop to view the products we can supply.
I have competed in agility since 1999 and from that time had a very successful career.
Over the years I have been to Crufts, Olympia, The Highland Final, invited to the European Open and WON many Championship Classes with 4 different dogs.

- improves your dog’s behaviour and understanding of basic things we expect from them e.g. recalls, sit, stay, fetch
- keeps their mind active
This is me in action with my dog Uno
If you would like to try agility with your dog, book a lesson today. I have my own fenced training field at Easington, indoor facilities at Field House Equestrian Centre, East Boldon and Oakwood Equestrian Centre, Lanchester.
I wanted to complete the Canine massage Diploma to enable me to peruse a new and satisfying career in a field that I love and have been involved in since being a youngster – DOGS
Among my border collies have been several ailments, giving me a broad spectrum of experience in these areas. I had a dog who suffered with “gathering” or “measuring” before agility obstacles, another with “spondylosis”, and currently have a one with a “cruciate ligament tear” and one “hip dysplasia”. All of which I believe I could now help and support with my new skills.
As I compete at an intensive level in agility I understand how important it is for any working dog to be in peak condition for each competition.
