"Sam is an excellent dog trainer, but even more impressive, is that she trained us to train our dog.  She gave clear, sensible instructions and tailored the training to our dog’s breed, history, and current challenges.  She was patient and observant so that she could give specific feedback to help shape our behaviors when working with our dog.  We are extremely grateful to Sam for her kindness, professionalism and expertise."

"We are so blessed to have found Sam as our trainer. We couldn't have asked for anyone better! We have the most perfect, wonderful dog, thanks to her guidance and positive training methods! Our dog now comes instantly when we call her, stays close to us on trails, plays great at the dog park, and is wonderful with our two year old grandson. We can't thank Sam enough, and highly recommend  her to anyone looking for a dog trainer!"
