Hi, I’m Sabine

A dog loving, fun and energetic ABCD certified dog trainer (Animal Behavior College) and photographer ( visit: Sabine Oexmann Photography) I was born and raised in Germany and have had a passion for animals ever since I was a little kid.

I truly enjoy teaching dogs and their owners how to improve communication and growing their relationship in the process. Research has shown time and time again, that not only do reward-based methods contribute to a better relationship between dog and handler and better overall dog welfare, but these training methods are also more effective for the successful long-term treatment of every kind of behavior issue (read more here).

Sabine Born and Stevie

My goal is to provide a fun and efficient training experience that both will enjoy, the dogs and the handlers.

My dogs KT and Stevie are my best friends. They show me every day, how much they enjoy reward based training.

I am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and the Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ATD) and have made it my mission to never stop learning and to stay updated on modern training philosophies to improve my knowledge and ability to help my clients.

Since I am especially interested in helping reactive and anxious dogs with tendency for aggression, I attended the Aggression in Dogs conference and completed the Master Course Aggression in Dogs held by Michael Shikashio. He is an internationally sought after keynote speaker and presenter on the topic of dog aggression at numerous events, conferences, and universities worldwide.

Early on

I am so fascinated by photography and it’s capability to bring your imagination to amazing places. Early on, I fell in love with the idea of filming my own productions, so I set out to learn everything I could about storytelling through photos.


I have been teaching myself filmmaking for the past four and a half years and I’m still learning every day. I am building my business as a freelance filmmaker, as well as working on my own photo shoots.
