"Marley, my two year old, 56-pound English bulldog, tends to pull, dragging me along with him. I tried several collars, but nothing worked. It seemed like he was taking me for a walk instead. So, I called Sabrina to finally get some help, and she made me realize that it wasn’t just about the right type of collar but also my way of interacting with Marley. In order for me to get a well-behaved dog, I needed to become a better leader. She showed me how to properly use the collar, and helped me think in terms of what a wolf-pack leader would do, and apply those same concepts when training Marley. I always knew bulldogs were stubborn; so I was surprised at how quickly Marley responded to the training. I can honestly say that I got immediate results. I am now a better leader, and Marley can see that. He no longer pulls, and I’m able to take him anywhere. I recently took him to the Pet Expo, and despite all the other dogs to distract him, he did not pull at all. It’s amazing how well he behaved. I’m so happy I contacted Sabrina, and I’m looking forward to working with her again for off the leash training. "
"I cannot tell you how much I owe Sabrina and Danny for what they have done for Ruby. I cannot recommend them highly enough and they truly work miracles and here is why.
My dog was a spoilt princess. She barked, she pulled on the lead, she ran after cars and bikes, would get anxious when I left her and basically had such human characteristic that she didn’t socialize well with animals any more. She was a 18lb A.D.D. fur ball on four legs.
Ruby or “Some Other Bad Names” as I used to call her is a 3 year old Norfolk Terrier. I guess I bought it this on myself but I loved her personality and all of her quirks. I didn’t really mind it or I thought I didn’t. She travelled around the world with me from Australia, Hawaii, Denver and Texas. We lived out of hotel rooms or temporary accommodations and I let her do almost whatever she wanted. I didn’t have the time to try and fix the problems and I felt bad about our situation so I just let things slide.
When I moved permanently to Hawaii in January I moved into a small condo and everything seemed fine. Until I got a call one day when on the mainland after leaving my dog with pet sitter. Apparently Ruby had been barking nonstop for the whole week and was howling each time the pet sitter left. My neighbors had enough. I travelled home to find two written warnings, numerous notes on my door, threats of eviction, verbal abuse from my neighbors and worst of all complaints to Animal Humane society. I had to find a solution.
After doing some research I worked out there was two options either retrain my dog or have its vocal cords taken out. I honestly didn’t know she barked each time I left her alone. I was so worried that Ruby would lose her personality I loved so much in retraining but the thought of getting surgery just terrified me.
To be honest I was very very skeptical. I had tried things before and watched Caesar Milan. I didn’t think anything would change her and this whole pack leader dog whisper thing was a scam. With a quick call to Balanced Obedience in walked Sabrina through my door. She was great from the beginning. You can see it in how she relates to animals. Ruby attended a three week boot camp with Sabrina and Danny where they went through the process of retraining her. At the same time I learnt that I needed to be retrained. That was a lesson I didn’t know was coming. When Sabrina dropped her off I was absolutely shocked. Ruby would now lay down and sit restful, walk on the leash properly and was very obedient. My neighbors were absolutely shocked and so were my friends and family. I don’t hesitate to take Ruby anywhere with me and truly wish I had of done this years ago. Ruby’s personality that I was so worried about is still there and I’m glad for it. She is a much happier dog and it’s a pleasure to be her owner now.
So there is still stuff that Sabrina and I will continue to work on. The adventure is not over but I know now that Ruby has a loving second family that I feel comfortable with when I have to go out of town once a month. Hopefully one day Ruby will even walk off the lead down Kuhio on a Saturday. I owe Danny a case of beer if that ever happens. Thank you so much Sabrina and Danny. You have changed Ruby’s and my life for the better. I cannot thank you enough. You truly are miracle workers. You proved me wrong. We are not skeptics anymore.
Kyle and Ruby"
"With Sabrina's behavior modification methods and obedience training I've been able to gain control over my pack of dogs. Through observation and conversation she is able to gauge how much (or little) control you have over your dog(s) and picks up on what sort of personality you have as a pack leader for your dog(s).
From her I learned hand signals, the correct tone of voice to use when executing the commands, the correct "words" to use when correcting a non-compliant dog. ... Her methods have worked wonders with my pack...sadly she wasn't the first trainer with whom I've worked. I'm sure if she was I would have saved myself a lot of time and me and my dogs and I would have had a much more structured, relaxed relationship for a longer time.
Sabrina is great! I am a believer of her methods!"
I called Sabrina when my dog Jaco, a shar pei pitbull mix, became terrified of his crate. I was moving to the mainland, and wanted to make sure that he would feel comfortable in his crate before our 5 hour flight.
He was so terrified that if he even heard the crate door open, he would run and cower and refuse to eat for the rest of the day.
When Sabrina met Jaco, he immediately responded to her, and completely surprised me by obeying her hand signals and walking into the crate with assistance.
With her help, within in a week, Jaco, was comfortable in his new crate, fully housebroken, and an even better companion than before! Thank you so much Sabrina! You have such a wonderful connection with animals, and I'm so glad that Jaco and I were able to meet with you.
Here is Roxy and Brad's happy and relaxed pack of 4 good dogs.
Notice how all of the dogs are focused on the hand signal.
Pictured here is Mia the Toy Poodle and
Rusty the Labradoodle puppy.
Here is the testimonial from Rusty's owners.
"Dear Sabrina and Danny, we want to thank you for training our beautiful labradoodle puppy Rusty in your puppy camp. He has a great personality and is a very loving dog, but the gift you gave us was the language we now have to communicate with him. And you taught us how to understand his communication with us. We are a happy family and Rusty makes it even happier. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for your help.
Nev, Kiril and Rusty"
