Introducing The Pet Ranch's dog trainer, Brina (think "Sabrina", but without the "Sa"). Since she was a little girl, she has adored animals and the companionship that comes from them - especially dogs. She grew up around all kinds of creatures, from cats and dogs to horses and frogs. At one point, she dreamt of becoming a veterinarian, and even went to school to become a vet tech, but as soon as she landed her first job in an animal shelter she knew that behavior was for her. She found her passion in working with dogs in the shelter, giving them the help and support they needed to set them up for success in their forever homes.
Her goal as a trainer is to help you and your dog understand one another. She aims to set expectations for your furry companion that will bring your family closer and put your mind at ease. No dog is perfect, much like no human is, but what she can do is give you and your dog the tools needed to function successfully as a valuable and much-loved member of your household.
Brina is Fear-Free certified through the Fear-Free Shelters Program and believes in a positive-reinforcement based approach to encourage desired behaviors and lead away from undesirable ones, without causing your fur baby pain or fear. Her aim is to help dogs understand what is right and successful, and to help their humans understand how to make that happen.
