I have been extremely happy with Rebecca's training and her ability to help owners understand the importance of having a well mannered canine citizen. I have also seen her successfully turn an aggressive dog with bite history, into a charming well behaved angel. If you want your dog trained right, I only recommend Rebecca and Sac Dog Central.

Rebecca has an extensive background in animal behavior, and is eager to teach those committed and dedicated to putting in the work required to change your dog's behavior. I'm excited and look forward to this experience! Her advice worked like a charm on my baby girl dog.

Veterinary Endorsement:

I have practiced for 16 years in the Sacramento Region as a small animal veterinarian and have yet to find a better dog behaviorist and trainer than Rebecca Brackney of Sac Dog Central. She is a top-notch trainer and certified animal behaviorist who gets results fast. She is my #1 choice for referrals. Rebecca has literally transformed the lives of dozens of my clients. From fearful puppies and “out of control “adolescents, to new dog rescues with behavioral problems such as leash aggression and resource guarding, Rebecca will find a solution that works. Her training approach is vastly different from other trainers I’ve worked with, the key to her success is showing our clients that there is a better way to communicate with our pets. Setting up a solid foundation of good communication (often non-verbal) between dog and owner is critical for any successful training to occur. She educates and empowers her clients, leaving the family with a happier, calmer dog who understands the rules and boundaries of the house. Please consider her for all your professional behavior consultation and dog training needs!
