Hawaii’s Premier No-Shock Collar Puppy Training & Service Dog Training Program
I have been animal training since 1986, and received a BS in zoology with a focus on psychology and animal behavior.
I am a certified dog trainer and have many excellent references. Balanced Obedience has been an accredited business with the Hawaii BBB since 2008 and has an A+ rating.Balanced Obedience is the only BBB accredited dog training business in Hawaii.
Balanced Obedience focuses on socialization and obedience of dogs and can help your dog become a well-mannered and happy member of the family.
Great are the rewards we reap from loving relationships with the animals in our lives.
Unfortunately, many people have a pet that does not trust or respect them and the relationship is strained and unbalanced.
We all know how distressing bad behaviors can be. Imagine the dog that is: not housebroken; prone to separation anxiety; is animal-aggressive; pulls on the leash; barks excessively; or only follows commands when it feels like it.
Animal training has changed much in the last few decades.
Dog training has moved from a strict punishment-based training where the dog is corrected by a yank on the collar for not following a command to a bribe-based training where the dog gets a treat or toy for following a command. Each method can train a dog, but neither is suitable for all dogs and all behaviors.
Balanced Obedience is where the focus of the training is the language of the command itself followed by verbal praise and touching.
Well Trained Happy Dogs
Every animal owner should have a loving, harmonious relationship with their pets without having to resort to food bribes or a shock collar.

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…read more→
"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…read more→
"Sabrina, Louis is just the best. We are so enjoying him. Thank you for all you've done to help us make him an important part of our family."
"Sabrina took care of our new puppy for "boot camp" training soon after we got him and we are so glad we decided to do this! Hero came back to us knowing so much more than what we could have hoped for in a puppy. He's exceptionally trained in basic obedience and already quickly learning the rules of our household as Sabrina has taught us how to work with him on a daily basis. All the neighbors that we've run…read more→
"I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Sabrina for coming to our house. During a 2 hour period I learned more than I ever did while I was attending a 7 week Puppy Training Class. It was affordable, well planned out and I didn't have to waste time traveling back and forth to classes or worry about missing a session. She was VERY knowledgable, very hands on and within minutes my 7 month old Dobie was obeying commands! She…read more→
"The best decision made, was in calling Sabrina for help when my husband and I decided to bring over his Big Island Rotti girl, Keiko, to come live with us and our already pack of 3. They're big dogs & not the most trusting... we didn't know how we would integrate Keiko with them, or if it was even possible. We called Sabrina & she suggested doggie boot camp where they could meet for the first time on neutral territory…read more→
"I was on the brink of opening up the front door and setting my disobedient, loud, un-house broken daschund free. I had always wanted a daschund and when I finally got one- he was terrible! My hubby suggested a lady name Sabrina to train my dog as opposed to getting rid of the pup of my dreams. After 14 days of Sabrina's training, my dog was an obedient, house broken, tolerable dog. I am so pleased! My pup is finally…read more→
