If you have a dog who needs some emotional re-balancing, definitely give them a call.

I'm very happy to recommend Sam and Sammie. Personally and professionally, they are a joy to be around and their passion for helping dogs is unparalleled. The joy they take in their work shows, and is contagious! If you have a dog who needs some emotional re-balancing, definitely give them a call. - LT (ME)

They gave me excellent advice that actually WORKED!


It was a joy talking with Sam & Sammie about my rescue dog! I was having trouble with crate training and behavioral issues and they gave me excellent advice that actually WORKED! Although I was not able to meet with them in person because I live out of town, they were able to give us an effective training session over the phone. I am so impressed with their knowledge and passion for dogs and highly recommend them! - VL (IL)

Both trainers are so knowledgeable about “Why” your animal is reacting this way

Scottie has had a lot of body guarding since he was a pet both because of his rescue experiences and several negative vet experiences. A vet in fact, once threw him across the room as a puppy. The core exercises, as well as other strategies have helped to turn his fear based responses into a calmer less reactive dog. I worked with many dog trainers before working with Sam and Sammie. So many trainers simply do not really know the “Whys” behind what might be happening in your animal. If we aren’t, as owners and as their family members, seeking to understand our animal then we are doing them a great disservice. Both trainers are so knowledgeable about both the “Why” your animal is reacting this way and how to work with this behavior in a positive way that does not further trauma. - HD (NJ)
