I have an old stubborn Frenchie that I was losing hope on, but loved too much to stop trying. After plenty of research I came across Balanced Obedience. I reached out to Sabrina for training. She trained my Frenchie to be obedient to a leader and showed me how to take back control of our relationship. Our Frenchie now respects me as the leader and it has made a world of difference in our household. After the training program, we boarded our Frenchie with Sabrina on short notice. She was able to accommodate him and she returned him with a bath. Throughout our dogs’ experiences with Sabrina, she has fed him quality food, kept us updated on his training and boarding, and educated us about how we can help our dog have a better lifestyle. Our family is very thankful for Sabrina Clark! She has helped my dog and I in so many ways. I know we can count on her in the future to be there for us again. She is very reliable, honest, professional, and is really passionate about what she does. Qualities that are hard to come across these days.

We can’t thank Sabrina at Balanced obidience enough, for the tremendous transformation we’ve seen in our puppy. We put our (16 week old) puppy through the 2 week doggie boot camp, and she came home a different dog. Calmer, more obedient and with a whole bunch of new tricks! We almost couldn’t believe that she was the same dog. One of the biggest challenges we faced was her pulling during walks. She now walks calmly at our feet. So calmly, even our children can walk her without effort. (See pic) thank you so much Sabrina and Balanced Obedience for turning our rambunctious pup into a loving family dog.

Sabrina is wonderful! She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, kind, generous, and dedicated to training all types of dogs. After researching a few puppy boot camps on Oahu, and then meeting with Sabrina for an initial consultation, my boyfriend and I sent Cola, our 4-month-old chocolate brown chihuahua terrier mix, to the 2-week puppy boot camp in March 2021. It was a considerable price in proportion to our limited budget but every penny has been so worth it. Other trainers on Oahu are actually priced the same or more. Sabrina was so dedicated to our puppy's success that she gave her a 3rd week of training for free (Cola's a stubborn girl)! What sold me most on choosing Sabrina was meeting with her and learning that she uses praise-based training (no treats). Cola's training did not end at the 3-week mark either because Sabrina is still regularly checking in with us via text and meeting at our home and hers to do follow-ups. The training guide she provides after boot camp is an excellent resource and Sabrina has been so helpful in guiding us with how to tailor some of the commands and training for our stubborn pup. Our experience has been nothing but positive. I highly recommend and TRUST Sabrina for dog training and I definitely plan to use her services again for training camps and boarding.

Sabrina is a wonderful trainer. She has done such an amazing job with our Paco (a stubborn French bulldog). We notice how happy Paco is when he stays there for a few days or weeks. Totally recommended, anytime we are out of town we have the peace of mind that he is in the best place enjoying the boot camp while socializing with other dogs

We have a 2-year old F1B Goldendoodle who liked to jump a lot, pulled the leash while walking, didn't come when we called her, didn't stay in one place, and only played with small dogs. My wife looked up obedience training programs on google and we came across Balanced Obedience. The first time we reached out to Sabrina, she was very responsive and cordial. We exchanged some emails and she recommended the 2-week bootcamp for our dog. We went out to her farm/training facility in Waimanalo to check it out and she was able to evaluate our dog and address the concerns we had about our dog's obedience issues before we began the program. The following weekend, she came over to our house to pick our dog to start the bootcamp. During the bootcamp, she always kept us up-to-date and sent us pictures and videos of her progress. Once the bootcamp completed, she brought our dog home and did a lesson with us on how to handle our newly trained dog and Results: Every concern we had above was addressed and our dog now has become more obedient, she's more confident around bigger dogs and listens to us which she didn't before the training. Sabrina did a great job and deserves the credit for these results.

I met with Sabrina 3 years ago to train my oldest, a hound/staffy mix, and I have never looked back since. She goes above and beyond to provide the best service, care and love to the animals. She is the TRUE dog whisperer and trains the owners as well, which is the most important. Her knowledge about animals and training is endless and I cannot think of my life without Sabrina. Since then, I have adopted more dogs all various breeds and they all went to Boot camp, even the little chihuahuas. Whenever I have an issue, Sabrina is quick to give me various solutions. I would recommend her to any dog owner with pets who have behavioural issues for she knows what she is doing. When Sabrina comes to pick them up for refreshers, which I do a few times a year, they jump into her van. I have the utmost respect for Sabrina and the miracles she performs.

My dogs boarded there for an entire month for potty and basic training. I paid $5000 and when they came back they weren't potty trained at all. They were a little better socializing with other dogs and that's about it. What a waste of money! I was even told one of my dogs was mentally challenged!

We brought our 4 year old Blue Heeler, Josey Wales, to Sabrina for training and have been so impressed! Although this was a hard financial decision for us, the training has been so great that we are glad we took the leap to employ outside professional help for our misbehaved pup. Sabrina is insightful, knowledgeable and personable. She genuinely listened to our needs and helped us understand how to best communicate with our dog. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Sabrina is knowledgable, kind and caring. I first contacted her after adopting my rescue dog Tommy. After his training Tommy was easy to handle and all problems had been solved. Tommy continues to return for boarding and literally runs to …

This is a review for my dog Scar. He’s a terrier mix and 2 years old. I love my boy but his attitude was becoming a bit out of control to the point he was kicked out of his day care for getting aggressive with other dogs. At that point I knew it was time for me to find a way to get him to behave better with other dogs. Before going to Sabrina at Balanced Obedience, Scar was a bit aggressive with other dogs. At the park, at day care, and during our walks to the point where I didn’t know if he could go outside anymore. Furthermore, he was super stubborn and refused to obey any commands, unless I had food for him. I met with Sabrina to talk about Scar’s issues and what my goals were with him. She was very accommodating and responded quickly to all of my questions. From the moment she met with Scar, he instantly liked her. After our meeting, I was confidence she would be able to help Scar out, so I sent him to her 2 week boot camp. She even went out of her way to take care of him for a few additional days during the boot camp for no extra charge while I was traveling for family obligations. After I got Scar back, it was like he was a completely different dog, he is now obedient and super friendly with all the dogs he meets. Now I always get compliments on his behavior whenever we go out. I don’t know how she did it but she definitely did a great job with him and I recommend Sabrina to anybody who would like their dog to be a bit more obedient.

After living in Hawaii for 4 years, we finally decided it was time for us to get a dog. We knew we wanted a doodle mix since they are so smart. We had no idea how challenging the training would be. …
