Dr. Sophie Liu originally fell in love with dog behavior when she found herself with a very challenging and aggressive Doberman mix. That experience pushed Dr. Liu to dive deeply into animal behavior, dog training, and eventually to veterinary medicine. After graduating from Cornell University College of Veterinary medicine, she entered private practice in small animal general medicine and is completed a behavior medicine residency at San Francisco SPCA.

She is particularly passionate about evidence-based practices when it comes to dog behavior. At the core of everything is her love of dog training. Dr. Liu believes there is no feeling more wonderful than a dog’s full engagement and no sight more lovely than beautiful training. She currently trains her Doberman in protection sports and her Taiwan rescue dog in agility.
