About Sarah Stremming

Hi, I’m Sarah!

Hi, I’m Sarah, and I am passionate about helping dogs and their people.

I’m a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (IAABC), I have nearly two decades in the field of dog training and behavior, and 25 years competing in dogs sports. I have a bachelors of science degree in psychology from Colorado State University, and I diligently attend conferences and other educational events every year.

I have also done the “dirt time” with dogs and their people in multiple professional capacities; daycares, boarding kennels, veterinary clinics, and shelters have all offered me the hands-on experience I bring to the table today. For my first decade in dog training I taught dozens of dogs and handlers each week in group classes, and over time developed my programs and streamlined them to fit the clientele I now serve.

I also get it.

My first sport dog was a border collie named Kelso, who was severely aggressive to other dogs. I know what it feels like to be lost without anyone who knows how to help you because I have lived it. Whatever you are facing, there is hope, and if I can’t help you I will find you the person who can.

When I am not working I am usually deep in the woods in the Pacific Northwest behind my border collies and Icelandic sheepdog. 

“I can always count on you to be no nonsense, logical, and fair to both humans and dogs.”

— Tara Stillwell
