Sarah Rodeheaver has always had a passion for working with dogs and horses. She started training when she rescued her first dog, a Doberman Pinscher named Pockets.
Sarah began by working at a kennel in order to learn from the owner, a very strict German woman who trusted her to train and show her dogs. Hungry to learn, she took as many classes and seminars about dogs as she could. She began competing with her personal dog in 1988. She has experience and titled dogs in obedience, agility, rally, tracking, Schutzhund, French ring sport, and trick dog. She’s also been a mentor-trainer for the Animal Behavior College.
In 1995 Sarah opened Dog Zone LLC – a dog training, daycare and grooming facility in Battle Creek, Michigan. In 2011, Sarah started handling bed bug dogs for Bed Bug Investigations. Since 2015, she became owner/handler/trainer for K9 Bed Bug Hunter, a scent-detection service used in hospitals, public buildings, apartments, and private residences. She has also completed a Diabetic Alert/Medical Alert training course with Debby Kay and has trained several PTSD service dogs.
Sarah shares her home with her Dobermans “Bravo,” and “Fire”, along with her bed bug dogs.
