“We sent our 17 week old labrador, Koa, to Sabrina’s boot camp when we realized that he was pretty much the boss of the house, despite our best efforts at training him. When we sent him, we were dealing with these issues: – He wasn’t crate trained – He would fight walking on a leash because he was obsessed with smelling everything – He would jump constantly on people upon greeting them despite our attempts to keep him down – He would moan/growl if we tried to move him off the couch. – He wouldn’t lay down if he wasn’t going to get a treat. He was the boss, and he knew it. Upon getting him back, basically all of the above issues are resolved. He doesn’t dare to get on the couch because it is off limits now, he heels on walks and lies down on command (not 100% perfect, but pretty close). He doesn’t jump on people when meeting them. He doesn’t moan or growl when I move him around. He doesn’t expect treats. Sabrina did a phenomenal job. She trained us as well on how walk him, behave around him, and how to continue his training. We plan to continue with some off leash training in a couple weeks. A couple other points: – Although Koa came home a more humble dog, he was still happy, loving, and playful…his personality was still the same, he was just much, much more obedient. – Balanced Obedience is Military Friendly. Thanks, Sabrina, for supporting our troops. ”

“Sabrina and Danny have helped to train both of our dogs from Day 1. They are awesome, and the dogs love her. Hilu, our 6-year-old yellow lab, has agility and rally obedience titles. Kila, our almost 2 year-old black lab, is entered in her first obedience and agility trial this month. Sabrina has helped us along the way with any training issues that have developed. Danny taught Hilu to run next to a bike, so I could take her on walks. They both have excellent down stays, even with a lot of distractions, thanks to their training with Sabrina. It’s wonderful to have a safe place to send our dogs when we leave the island. They get training and have a lot of fun. ”


“We used Balanced Obedience Dog & Puppy Training for our dogs for training and sporting when they go off-island. We use them for boarding.  She is excellent. She comes, she picks them up and she takes them back. They are excited to see her. And she tweaks any training that might need to be done – like, one time our dog killed several of our neighbor’s chicken, so she took care of that. She brings them back bathed and nail trimmed, after having a wonderful lunch at the farm, so they run around on the farm. There …are horses …{and}…chickens for the dogs. We call it puppy day camp and they just have so much fun. It helps us be relaxed and we don’t have to worry about what’s happening to them, they are having a good time. We have a German Shepherd, a Puppy Terrier and a Miniature Schnauzer; so she is diversified. She’s already volunteered to board our dogs and take them to the airport for us.”


“I’m so pleased with the thoughtful assistance provided to my two dogs and to myself and family. I recommend Balanced Obedience fully. They will give you hope for even the craziest canines!”


“Sabrina has been amazing and she helped us out when we got a little puppy who had major abandonment issues and potty issues.  I tried several trainers and my dog seemed not to flinch on her issues.  Sabrina had a way a doing that calm obedience training, like a dog whisperer.  My dog went to bootcamp and came back so much more calmer and more self assured.  The dogs aren’t ever crated and are taught to not be barkers and staying calm on their beds.  All her other dogs she watches are trained so they are all teaching each other too.   She is all about the dogs and can really read what the dogs are feeling.  She’s wonderful.

Well, when she brought our dog back, she then had to work on us.  Our dog was trained and training us gave our dog the ability to now understand what the heck we are trying to tell her.  Yep, we all learned alot from her.

I think another good sign is that whenever my dog sees Sabrina, she’s so happy and excited.  Its assuring to see that.”


“Sabrina did a fantastic job training our rescue dog Tommy. He also boards and there is no issue with him leaving with his good friend. Couldn’t have made a better decision.”


“Sabrina trained both my Peekpoo (Pluto) and my Rottie (Sam). She did amazing job.”
