Sam was amazing! She gave us one to one advice specific to our puppy’s and family’s needs. She instilled in the whole family the confidence to encourage good behaviour in our dog and how to handle any potential problems. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

Sam is kind, caring and takes a huge amount of care in giving her clients the best possible service. Would highly recommend Sam to help with all your doggy training needs! 5 star :)
Hannah Hesketh from Butternut Box
Sam was absolutely amazing in getting us started in the right direction training our little Pomsky. As first time puppy owners, we had loads of questions and concerns but she was more than willing to hear us out and advise accordingly. The in-person sessions were packed with handouts, listening to us (and puppy), training and homework! In 3 short weeks, Marley came a long way with recall, leash walking, basic commands and even sleeping through the night. From the very first email with Sam's flexibility in getting the 1:1 training started asap to being very generous with her time during the sessions itself - I'm really glad we reached out to her. We'll probably be counting on Sam in the future as we approach adolescence with the little guy!

Sam has helped us enormously with training our puppy Digby. She ensures the dog and their parents are happy every step of the way, and her positive approach has meant we have a very content pup. She's also on hand to answer any questions and is willing to go over and above any requests. Thanks Sam!

Sam was instrumental in helping us set our new family member up for success. Baxter (our puppy) is a cocker spaniel - and is full of the beans! She helped us so much in learning about different puppies needs; what to look out for, how to foster good habits - with everything being cantered around positive reinforcement. Thanks to Sam, our puppy has pretty decent parents now!
