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

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

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

Growing up in Germany, since I can remember I always loved animals of all sizes and wanted dogs. When my parents finally got their rescue mixed breed Celly I loved spending every possible moment with her and teaching her new tricks.

In 2017, we got our working Golden Retriever Gin-Hendrick and I fell completely in love training this high energy dog. In 2020 we got our second Golden Hercinia-Pathfinder. 

Using positive training methods we enrich our relationships daily.

I have since trained and studied in Germany and England with various trainers and reward based training styles and worked with positive reinforcement training methods from 2018-2023 in England as a dog trainer.

With our move to Colorado in 2023 the vision of my own dog school finally became reality and I am looking 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.


For all my lessons and behavior sessions I offer single one hour bookings (pay-as-you-go) or you can buy a package of multiple hours and we book the hours as you like. Packages will give you reduced hourly rates.

Some, like Rattlesnake Training for Dogs, are also offered as group classes. 

All my lessons are personalized to your needs and your dog's knowledge & abilities, as I don't believe that one shoe fits all in training.

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.

"We had a wonderful training class with Sandra. At first I almost didn't go because my dog's reactivity can be a lot to handle, but Sandra made us feel welcomed and took the time to make sure Valkyrie was calm and comfortable. We were able to work through her reactiveness and I still use the tricks Sandra taught us to this day!"
