About Sarah Whitehead and Learn to Talk Dog
Well hello, and welcome to Learn to Talk Dog!
As one of the leading canine and feline behavioural specialists in the UK, I think I have the best job in the world! I love working with people and dogs and have been working on the Learn to Talk Dog site for more than two years to be able to share my passion for understanding dogs.
I am full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT).
I have an MSc in animal behaviour and I specialise in aggression, puppy development and canine body language and facial expression.
Learn to talk dog
Up till now, the only way to access my expertise in dog body language has been to attend one of my courses for professionals – but now you have the chance to learn online and at a fraction of the cost.
Who rescued whom?
Oh good! A shameless chance for me to brag about my own dogs!
I have three – all from rescue, although I think that makes me the lucky one. Number one is my Collie/Jack Russell-cross, Tao. She’s as bright as a button. Number two (looking handsome in the pic above) is Jackson – a Jack Russell/Chihuahua cross.
My new girl is Skye, a Collie-cross-something-freckly, who loves agility and bog snorkelling (without the snorkel).
I also have two Maine Coon cats who are the apple of my eye, and are trained to do agility!

Essential and desirable doggie wisdom
MYTH-BUSTING – WINDMILL TAIL – WONDERFUL! I have thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Learn to talk dog’ programme and have appreciated the extra time given to complete it.

Just the translation I needed! (+ My anxious youngster Charlie sends his thanks!)
In addition to my behaviour work, I also run the Clever Dog Company.
With 12 branches of my specialist Clever Dog Company puppy and dog training classes now running, myself and all our instructors are passionate about sharing the best behavioural understanding and the most modern methods of dog training. www.cleverdogcompany.com
I also offer accredited educational courses in canine behaviour and training, lecture internationally on related subjects and canine body language, and offer professional Masterclasses, under the name Think Dog! www.thinkdog.org
Did you know? One of my other interests outside of Learn to Talk Dog is human psychology, and I am an NLP Master Practitioner. I believe that learning never stops and needs to be fun to ‘stick’.
I have written 25 books… and counting!
Check out my new book ‘Clever Dog!‘, now in paperback and published by HarperCollins.
