Sarah Fulcher is a dedicated and passionate dog trainer living in Trail, British Columbia, Canada. She first started working with dogs in 2001, taking in shelter animals that needed training. Volunteering as a foster home for rescue organizations for many years provided Sarah more valuable experience. She lived with and trained many different canine personalities, and has experience and success with many traditionally difficult to train breeds. Sarah has also trained several species of animals including dogs, cats, chickens, parrots, and horses.

Sarah is an open minded trainer who has experience with many different training methods, but discovered clicker training several years ago. She immediately found it to be a powerful training system and has enjoyed expanding her skills in marker training.

Dedicated to continuing education, she has background in animal behaviour at university, a Certificate in Canine Behaviour Science and Technology through the Companion Animal Sciences Institute, graduated with distinction from the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Professional Program, completed the Living & Learning with Animals course through Behavior+ Works and most recently the IAABC Principles and Practice course. Sarah is proud to be a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant through the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants and is also a Certified Trick Dog Trainer. She continues to grow and learn as a trainer.

She is a member in good standing with the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). She presents workshops throughout North America on various subjects and was selected to do a Shorts presentation at the 2014 and 2015 APDT conferences. Sarah has recently joined the IAABC Board of Directors and will be a mentor trainer for the new IAABC Animal Behaviour Consulting Principles & Practice course. Sarah also attends several educational conferences, seminars, and webinars each year. She is a regular contributing author for clickertraining.com, has been published in the APDT Chronicle of the Dog and participated in an award-winning group publication in the IACP Safe Hands journal.

With her dogs (Siberian huskies (past), Belgian shepherd, Australian Shepherd, and newly adopted Corgi), Sarah has trained, competed, or titled in many dog sports including obedience, rally obedience, skijorring, dog sledding, agility, musical freestyle, herding, tricks, and nose work.

Sarah specializes in behaviour problems such as fear, aggression, anxiety, and reactivity. Most of all, she loves helping people build strong relationships with their pets. She runs her business, Barks and Recreation Pet Services Inc., at home in Trail, BC with her husband Cameron. She and Cameron are active volunteers in their community, particularly for the local BC SPCA.
