I live in Harlow on the Essex/ Hertfordshire border. As well as my husband and baby I live with my two rescue sighthounds and 4 rescue chickens! With Sam the Dog Coach I aim to improve the lives of both dogs and their humans. I use only force free and reward based training and offer tailored training to suit your dogs individual needs. As well as being an SA Pro, I am also a Kids Around Dogs (KAD) trainer and a behaviourist and trustee for the charity ‘Project Galgo’. I can help clients who have separation anxiety issues with their dogs anywhere in the world by carrying out the consultations over Zoom.
Helping dogs and their people through separation anxiety and similar behaviors is a passion of mine because comfortable alone time is often such a relief for both the humans and the dogs. Because I know how hard life can be with difficult dogs, I am also really passionate about working with dogs through puppyhood and adolescence to create stable and resilient adult dogs. I want the dogs that I work with to be enthusiastic and unafraid learners who feel comfortable showing me how they really feel. I am a lifelong learner, and I am dedicated to continuing my education, and staying up to date on the most humane and effective ways to train.
My name is Ina Speksnijder and I live in South Holland, the Netherlands. I am a dog trainer since 2005 and have my own dog school since 2018. I find it very important to train fear and force free, therefore I keep following courses to stay up to date. I started the Separation anxiety course to be able to help my clients at the dog school better. At the moment I am also studying as a behaviour therapist. Please feel free to contact me to see if I can help you with your dogs separation anxiety.
Hi, My name is Miranda, a dog lover from the Netherlands, with a genuine interest in people, too. I am a certified behaviourist, specialising in dogs’ emotional well-being, and a certified SA Pro trainer. Thanks to my dog, Pip, I have become somewhat of an expert in dealing with separation anxiety. In fact, it was Pip that inspired me to take up several courses backed by science, including the very comprehensive course offered by Julie Naismith. I like to think that my own experience with Pip’s separation anxiety as well as my own experience as Pip’s owner has put me in a unique position to be able to offer personalised online guidance to fellow dog owners taking their particular circumstances into account. Any guidance I offer is always fear- and pain-free. My training as a canine behaviourist is reinforced by my extensive experience as a coordinator of 170 volunteers as part of my former day job, which has exposed me to many different experiences with many different people from all walks of life. It would be my privilege to take this journey with you, in helping you and your dog! Please feel free to contact me – I will be more than happy to answer any of your questions. Kind regards, Miranda
I am based near Southampton, Hampshire and specialise in separation anxiexy and helping caregivers work with their dogs at being comfortable home alone. After completing my level 5 Advanced Diploma Applied Animal Behaviour (Canine), I provide 1-2-1 training and behaviour services within your own home. Using force free, reward based methods, I offer tailored training to suit you and your dog’s individual needs. Group puppy and foundation classes are also available.
I aim to meet the needs of clients wherever they may be and whatever their circumstances may dictate. You can opt for face-to-face training sessions or distance-learning Zoom calls. Either way, you will be given a one-to-one training session that will meet you and your dog’s needs. I only offer one-to-one training so that I can focus on the individual needs of you and your dog. You will see results faster and learn the tools you need to live a happier and more relaxed life together.

Hi, I am Paula – The owner of Paula’s Pet Services (Est.2015) and a graduate of Absolute Dogs Pro Dog Trainer course (AD – PDT), and graduate of Julie Naismith’s Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer Course, (Cert. SAPT) My heart goes out to all of you owners who are struggling with SA. I have worked as a dog walker before dog training and have worked alongside lots of owners to manage SA and enable them an hour or 4 of freedom to nip out and go for meals or go shopping. As a SA Pro Trainer, I would love to help you understand how to help your dog and work towards your independence in managing this for yourselves too. It’s important that you can ask me anything, no question is a stupid question. I want for you to understand the process and trust how it can work for you and your dog. As a force free and fear free trainer, we will work as a team and I’ll be here to support you all the way, in understanding what is going on with your dog and to help them in the best way possible. Separation Anxiety can be a lonely and overwhelming pathway, but you don’t have to do this alone.
