Meet Team GDFL


Sabrina Watts

Trainer & Owner

sabrina2Trainer Sabrina Watts is a Bay Area native with an unparalleled love of animals. As a mobile trainer she travels often to train for a week at a time and positively affect the lives of pets and their owners in parts of California and Nevada. In 2013 she founded her non-profit, Project One Love, to help connect at-risk youth and shelter dogs. By sharing her knowledge she hopes to rebuild our communities one child and dog at a time.

The idea GDFL was born 2005 when I attended animal behavior college to be a pet dog trainer. I started teaching classes at a major pet store in 2007 and went on to teach at a district level. Then, I taught in Menlo Park Rec Center, while I gained private in home experience. I worked at Pets in Need (nor California’s 1st no kill shelter) from 2013-2014 and still contract out with them to take on their project dogs. I took GDFL full time in 2011 haven’t looked back since.

With over 2500 logged hours, & working with over 1500 dogs, Sabrina knows she is in her field. She is passionate about helping families raise puppies right and tackling on behavior issues and turning around the dogs that are about to be thrown away.
Sabrina has a 4 year old little girl who spent the first 2 years in a pack on the mountain with her and now spend days in her dad Tink’s playgroup. Sabrina is also fostering a “human” baby who goes with her on the hikes now.

GDFL is a small family like business that prides itself on taking care of their clients and their dogs like family. In her spare time Sabrina has a growing nonprofit (Project One Love, Inc) that focuses on pairing at risk children use with shelter dogs. Her current Project is in San Francisco working with homeless youth and their pets. She is pairing up with a non profit in the Haight called Taking it to the streets. Stay tuned for more announcements on that this summer!




Kalina is a long standing member of the pack, sharing her affection and experience with our extended Good Dog for Life family in San Diego.
