Sabrina earned her CTC (Certificate in Training and counselling) at Jean Donaldson's Academy for Dog Trainers, which is world renowned as "The Harvard for dog training". She is also certified in Separation Anxiety (CSAT).

Sabrina began her work with animals while working at emergency shelters, where she gained experience with all sorts of dogs: from neglect cases, to puppy mill dogs and even dogs rescued from oversea meat farms, you name it. She has since extended her knowledge and expertise to her clients and their dogs. 

She is a strong believer in education, and science based training, especially in an industry where there are no regulations.
