A FEW WORDS ABOUT ME...

fun. compassion. science & reward based. relationship focused. clear communication.

I believe dog training should be fun for everyone involved. I’ll train you as much as your dog because you, their “pawrents,” are their advocate, best friend, and family!

 

I help you grow your relationship. Living with our dogs can be rewarding and wonderful if all needs are considered.

 

Growing up in Germany, I’ve always loved animals and wanted dogs. When my parents finally got their rescue mixed breed Celly, I loved every moment with her, teaching her new tricks.

In 2017, we got our working Golden Retriever Gin-Hendrick, and I fell in love with training this high-energy dog. In 2020, we got our second Golden, Hercinia-Pathfinder. Using positive training methods, we enrich our relationships daily.

 

I’ve trained and studied in Germany and England with various trainers, using reward-based training styles. From 2018-2023, I worked with positive reinforcement training methods in England as a dog trainer.

In 2023, moving to Colorado made my dream of opening my own dog school a reality. I look forward to helping you and your dog with reward-based training methods. Besides dog training and behavior modifications, I also specialize in Positive Reinforcement Gun Dog Training.

HOW I CAN HELP YOU
TRAIN YOUR DOG

DOG TRAINING SERVICES

At dreamlike4paws, I offer flexible booking options for all lessons and behavior sessions. Choose between single one-hour bookings (pay-as-you-go) or save with a package of multiple hours, which can be scheduled at your convenience. Packages offer reduced hourly rates for greater value.

 

Some services, such as Rattlesnake Training for Dogs, are also available as group classes.

Every lesson is tailored to your specific needs and your dog’s current knowledge and abilities. I believe that training should be as unique as each dog, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach here.

MY DOG TRAINING GOALS
FOR YOU

My goal at dreamlike4paws is to show you as pet parents that you can train & help your dog using scientific proven, reward based methods.

With compassion & motivation you can build confidence in and a positive relationship with your dog.

To get the best companion possible it takes besides a lot of practice, also patience, understanding, communication and empathy.

WHAT SOME OF MY PET PAWRENTS SAY...

"Bucket, my 2 year old rescued Golden Retriever/Husky mix could not have had a better trainer!!! Sandra was attentive, always asked what training Bucket needed specifically, and adjusted training style based on what Bucket responded best to.

This is reward-based training and I loved that I could trust that Sandra would find the best positive-reinforcement ideas to help with Bucket's behavior. He has done a complete 180 already in the almost 2 months and only 3 sessions with Sandra"
