Sabine Platten, CPDT-KA

When my husband and I acquired our first Labrador in 1992 it started my love affair with dog training. She became my first teacher and I learned my biggest lessons from her: to be humble in my partnership with creatures that offer us so much, so freely. And that a sense of humor would be required.

While I enjoy training and competing and have titled dogs in conformation, obedience, Rally and agility under several governing bodies (AKC, APDT and USDAA), I also love just being with my dogs. My passion is puppies and I indulge it by breeding an occasional litter of Labradors, usually when I’m ready for my next dog, and by teaching puppies and their families how to build confidence and develop a relationship based on trust, fairness and positive training.

I am a member of the Association of Peg Dog Trainers and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA), continuing to improve my skills and understanding of the wonderful animals with whom we share our lives by attending seminars presented by internationally recognized and cutting edge educators:  Dr. Ian Dunbar, Terry Ryan, Leslie Nelson, Brenda Aloff, Bob Bailey, Sue Sternberg, Greg Derrett and Steve White, Karen Pryor and Ken Ramirez to name just a few.

Because DTCCC’s mission is positive training and community education, I am honored to be the current President of this Club and excited about being a part of this instructor team.
I am owned, trained and loved by four generations of home-bred Labradors: Beatrice, 13; daughter Kiri, 9; and her granddaughter Whisper, 5; and finally, Whisper's daughter, Flurry, 18 months. My guides from the Rainbow Bridge also continue to influence my training and instructor philosophy - my regal Alix, my heart dog, Campbell, the epitome of a Labrador boy, my sweet and handsome Kes, and most recently, Dreamer, my companion and working partner for nearly 16 years.
