What our Happy Dog Owner’s Say:

“he came back better in every way.”

“I have a wonderful German Shepherd dog who was about 11/2 years old when I decided to have a total knee replacement. It had been my passion to do obedience training with him from the time he was 14 weeks old. I took him through successive classes until my knee became too painful to continue. Knowing I would not be able to continue his training or take care of his exercise requirements for at...

“Thank you Balanced Obedience for training our wild Husky.”

“Thank you Balanced Obedience for training our wild Husky. Before he stayed with you at the doggie bootcamp, he would pull on the leash non-stop, jump on company and only listen when he wanted. Now he is responsive and doesn’t pull on the leash at all. I never thought I would walk him without getting frustrated and tired from his pulling. You truly did an amazing job because huskies are not the...

“he is very well behaved”

"Sabrina, I wanted to thank you for your help with our puppy Diesel. He is now a 120 lb. American Bulldog and he is very well behaved and people constantly ask how we got him to be so good. Hopefully our good words about you and the proof they have seen have brought you some new clientele." Owner of an American Bulldog

“She is truly amazing at what she does”

“We sent our chocolate lab puppy, Charlie to Sabrina and her team for a three week boot camp a little over two months ago. We have been extremely happy since he first came home. She did a great job in every aspect in training our pup and our whole family. She gave us tip and suggestions on everything… food, toys, leashes and of course every aspect of training. You can tell she truly loves what...

“I can’t recommend Sabrina and Danny enough”

“I just got my Australian Cattle Dog Murphy back from the Doggie Boot Camp program yesterday after he was gone for three weeks. Let me just tell you – the dog I sent with Sabrina was a nervous, highly reactive nightmare that had zero manners and walked all over me. Don’t get me wrong; he’s a total sweetheart and an awesome companion but it got to the point where I didn’t even want to walk my dog...

“Balanced Obedience is the way to go.”

“When we adopted a rescue puppy, we knew we’d have our hands full as he matured.  Training was an absolute must for us — an obedient dog is a happy dog and happy owners!  We worked with him for a few weeks prior to the Holidays and started to notice a few areas that needed extra attention. Knowing we were leaving to the mainland for the Holidays, we decided to not only find a boarding facility,...

“If you have the chance you should work with Sabrina!”

“My husband and I adopted a 16 month old male German Shepherd and had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Our GSD, Kane (his previous owners called him Bane so we had to change that), came to us from a questionable background of malnourishment, maltreatment, and poor socialization. About a week after adopting him we took him to the vet for a wellness check and he bit the vet tech in the...

“He listens to my commands”

"Thank you so much to Sabrina and everyone else at Balanced Obedience Dog Training of Hawaii for taking such great care of my dog Koa. At 5 months old he went through the two week puppy bootcamp and I am so impressed at how much he learned in that short amount of time! He wasn’t a “bad” dog before he left for training, but he would jump up on everyone, me especially, and wouldn’t walk on a leash...

“Sabrina did a fantastic job”

“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.”

“dog went to bootcamp and came back so much more calmer”

“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...

“She is excellent”

“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...

“They get training and have a lot of fun.”

“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...

“he was just much, much more obedient”

“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...

“Thank Sabrina for a job well done!”

“I’m sorry it took me so long to Thank Sabrina for a job well done! My dog Hoku left kuu kuu came back Akamai!! lol You got problems with your animal so see Balanced Obedience Sabrina!!” Owner of a Chocolate Labrador Retriever

“I highly recommend her services.”

“Sabrina has trained my pitbull when he was just 6 months old. He just turned 14 months old and he turned out to be a very obedient and friendly dog. I am convinced that this is due to a great induction in obedience under Sabrina’s care. I now have my second dog, a 12-month old rescue chihuahua. Sabrina was very understanding of issues faced by many rescues. She also gave me a discount for him,...

“I consider Sabrina a great trainer who knows what she’s doing.”

“Sabrina Clark at Balanced Obedience helped us greatly with our male German Shepherd puppy. He is an adorable dog with some naughty behaviors. We contacted another local dog trainer, but he wasn’t much help at all. In fact, I think he was baffled by German Shepherds in general. His review is in my profile. Then I contacted Sabrina, and from the first time we met, I could tell she was the trainer...

“changed our energetic chocolate lab into a calm, well-behaved puppy.”

“Sabrina and Dan changed our energetic chocolate lab into a calm, well-behaved puppy. Mario is 6 mos old, and we get compliments on his behavior on walks. No pulling on the leash, no jumping, no barking, just calmly and happily walking by our side. He has the same behavior at home including no chewing on furniture, etc. Sabrina patiently worked with us to answer all our concerns, even after the...

“She has been a blessing to us”

“I am long overdue in writing this review, but better late than never! We are so lucky we found Sabrina ! When we moved here from the mainland and away from the one doggie sitter Koa knew and loved, we were nervous about taking our first vacation, as Koa is very particular about the humans she trusts. With Sabrina we found someone who was not at all deterred by our rescue dog’s “quirks”...

“one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.”

“Enrolling our dog, Plum in Sabrina’s training program is one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. She turned our shy, spoiled girl into a full fledged service dog! She has not only changed Plum, but my life and my family’s lives significantly for the better.” Owner of a rescue dog Service Dog canididate

“Sabrina is the best trainer we’ve ever encountered”

“Sabrina is the best trainer we’ve ever encountered and we tried a few before her. Our dog, Ellie, a German Shepard/border collie, did not get along with other dogs and also had severe separation anxiety. Those two problems are now gone. After Sabrina’s boot camp she was noticeably better. We also have Sabrina board her when we go on trips. She is the only boarding facility I could find that...

“You will be impressed and happy with the transformation”

“Sabrina is the dog whisperer. She adores our goofy chocolate lab, Mario. Using her training skills, Mario is a gentle, polite puppy. No worries while your dog is cared for at Balanced Obedience. You will be impressed and happy with the transformation. Magical. ✨” Owner of a Chocolate Labrador Retreiver

“We highly recommend Balanced Obedience”

“Sabrina and Danny have changed our lives! We were looking for the perfect service dog for our daughter and, although the first was not a good personality match, Sabrina and Danny persevered until we found our forever furry son, Maximus! He came to us trained and Sabrina and Danny prepared him well for a long flight from Honolulu to Seattle. Although we are far away now, we will always be...

“Thank you Sabrina for the great training”

“Thank you Sabrina for the great training you did with Kona Girl. At 4-1/2 months, Kona was a pretty rambunctious Labrador puppy. Even with the sweetest disposition, I was having a hard time getting her to heel, stay and come on command. After her three week Puppy Boot Camp, Kona came back so well mannered she is perfect on a heel, stay and come. Putting her in her kelley at night was not her...
