I have always had a passion for helping animals and caring for them. I started in the dog industry at a young age, doing in home sitting for dogs and cats and realized that my dream career is working with them. Training was the perfect fit for me because I love to see dogs and their owners enjoying their time together and bonding through fun training sessions.

I love to learn about all aspects of the dog world and am very interested in the communication between dogs and the world around them and how that can help their owners in building a better bond and relationship with their beloved companion.

Sam trains in the Surrey, Langley, Tri-Cities, Pitt Meadows, Maple ridge and Mission areas of the B.C. Lowermainland.

Training Philosophy:

My training methods are focused on science based positive training.   I want you to have fun training your dog and enjoy the time that you have together. I like to customize the training for every dog and client as there are no two dogs that are the same. When the dog shows you the behaviour that you ask for or that you want, then they get rewarded and start to repeat that behaviour. Instead of just teaching them no, we teach them what to do instead and that way, they have a job to think about doing instead of the behaviour that you don’t want to see.
