No matter where we go or what we do, our dogs are our whole lives and always with us. Omnidogs started in 2016 but that is not where our story begins. Before Omnidogs, Sarah started teaching in 2010 and Blackcat Dog Training soon followed a few years later working with dogs and puppies in Bedfordshire.
After a move took the family across county lines into Cambridgeshire, Sarah and the family continued training and providing dog walking services. Since then, we have not looked back as Omnidogs has grown year after year to provide more services including 1-2-1 sessions, group classes and hosting exhibition events every year.
Omnidogs is a family-run business, and, simply put, we love what we do every day. The business has since expanded from dog and puppy training into Hydrotherapy and also now offers 1-2-1 mentoring services for dog owners who would like a more dedicated service.
Sarah has worked with animals all her life; starting with racehorses, both flat racing and national hunt yards, she has also competed as an amateur jockey in flat races.
Sarah first started competing in agility with her Dalmatian, Daisy, back in 2007 and currently competes with her, Border Collie, Floyd, and Xoloitzcuintle, Ora. Some of Sarah’s favourite agility achievements include:
- Representing Team UK in Austria in 2015
- Competing at Crufts 2017 and 2018 in the Team Agility with Buster
- Competing at Crufts 2020 in the Team Agility with Jay.
- Qualifying Floyd for the 2018 UKA Grand Finals in the Yellow Hound Team event.
For several years, Sarah has also been involved with rescue dogs. This involves home checking, fostering, and fundraising, and she is also part of the national home check network. Her Ofqual level 5 Canine Behaviour Practitioner Diploma gives her a vast range of knowledge in dog training, obedience, and problematic behaviours, which helps her to unlock every dog’s potential
Andy is a dog lover through and through. His love and passion for them shows every day and Andy has become an important part of the family business. Andy’s first loves were two German Shepherds called Shroder and Linus.
Andy brings a wealth of experience to the team and plays an important part in the day-to-day running of the business with our dog walking service. In the past, Andy was always present at the various canine events we have either hosted or attended.
Andy has an excellent ‘way’ with the dogs, and this helps to ensure that the level of service provided to our clients remains first-class.
Rachel has been around dogs her whole life, she started competing in agility at the age of 8 and her passion has grown and grown.
She currently competes with her 9-year-old border collie and 4 year old spaniel, who have both made numerous finals and competed at top events such as Crufts and Discover dogs.
As a part of the Omnidogs team Rachel runs the hydrotherapy centre in St Ives and treats numerous dogs of all shapes and sizes! Her passion for hydrotherapy started from seeing the amazing benefits it has post-surgery and watching dogs being able to go back to their normal life without pain.
Milly has been around dogs from a young age, growing up in a multi-dog household, with the family’s chosen breed being Golden Retrievers. Milly’s passion for dog behaviour and training grew during her BSc Animal Biology degree.
For several years, Milly has been working in dog daycare centres, and dog training facilities, teaching a range of classes and 1-2-1 behaviour modification sessions, whilst studying to expand her knowledge on everything canine which now includes Level 3 hydrotherapy.
