The Team

Our team members are experienced athletes. While each have come to harness dog sports from a variety of places, all are accomplished in their own right. Couple this with extensive dog experience and you’ve got a qualified team ready to assist you in becoming not just your dog's owner, but training partner.

Sarah Warford
Owner - Team Lead

When you contact DogRunnin it will be Sarah you connect with, but Pippy, an energetic husky/shepherd mix is the real boss. As a team Sarah and Pippy will help you determine the best exercise routine for your dogs age, breed, health and temperament. With training in dog behaviour and canine fitness, Sarah also holds a undergraduate degree from Saint Mary’s University and a masters level degree from Acadia University. A lover of small team harness dog sports (specifically canicross), Sarah serves as the Regional Director for the Maritime Provinces on the board of the Canadian Association of Harness Dog Sports. When Sarah’s not running with dogs you can find her on the soccer field or thrift shopping for the greatest treasures. When Pippy’s not out running you can find her recharging by chewing dirty socks and begging for tummy rubs!

Sarah is the owner and team lead at DogRunnin. She is motivated by the conviction that when we are proactive in canine health, well being and fitness it will extened to the whole family and then to our communities. As an entrepreneur, she is passionate about creating unique opportunities in Nova Scotia and she thrives when facilitating opportunities for her staff to excell (and they do!). Invested in harness dog sports, Sarah is excited about sport development in the region and loves to coach 6-legged teams to achieve their fullest potential together.

Sarah Peel
Coach & Ambassador

A life-long athlete and animal-lover, Sarah comes to us from a hobby farm in New Brunswick, where she grew up working with quarter horses, sheep, and border collies.  Throughout her undergraduate studies, Sarah spent her free time volunteering with the SPCA and coaching youth sports. Sarah started her running career at St. Thomas University, training during the summer with the family border collies, Willow and Abby.  When she isn't running, Sarah likes to unwind with a good book and an over-sized lap dog!
