Sarah Althen, CPDT-KA has been working with animals since 1995, has been training dogs since 2002, and opened Both Ends of the Leash in 2003. Sarah continues to add more services that we offer to our clients, and improve the ones that we already offer. Both Ends of the Leash is committed to turning your dog into not just a happy pet, but a well loved member of your family. We will never advocate harsh training methods. All of our training is done using positive reinforcement, and we feel that training is a way to open up a line of communication between you and your dog.

We love to work with you and your dog for any type of training that you may need. Our specialty is the family pet who has behavior problems or needs to learn some manners in order to make life a little easier on you.

When we come for pet siting visits or Home School Training you can expect your pet and your home to be treated with the best care possible.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please view all of our pages for more information, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
