Sarah Bingham, BS, CPDT-KA

Senior Trainer

Sarah joined the Thunderhawk team in November 2017. She has had an interest in animals since she was a child, and knew that she wanted to further her education in an animal related field. Sarah graduated from Tennessee Technological University with a Bachelor’s in Biology, concentration of Zoology, in the Spring of 2020, and started the Fall 2020 term in the School of Education for graduate school.

Sarah became interested in training dogs when she enrolled in an animal behavior class, Save Us, at TTU. This is when she became involved with training the dogs and helping with behavioral issues at the Cookeville Putnam County Animal Shelter to help the dogs become more adoptable. Her love only grew for training when she started working at Thunderhawk Canine.

In September 2018, Sarah passed the Certification for Professional Dog Trainers exam – requiring a minimum of 300 approved hours mentoring, and a comprehensive knowledge assessment test focused on learning theory, client instruction, and husbandry. Most recently, Sarah became an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. She is also continuing her education, and this past year attended Aggression in Dogs: Safety, Defensive Handling, and Training Seminar, and is enrolled in a continuing education class at Fenzi Dog Sports Academy.

Currently Sarah works training the dogs in our in-board program, teaching basic obedience classes, and private sessions. In the future, Sarah plans to keep furthering her education on dog training and take more continuing education classes in preparation for the Certified Behavior Consultant – Canine exam.
