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.
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.

Hello! I am a dog behaviourist who works in an animal-friendly way. I have a bachelor’s degree in Animal care and I currently work as a puppy coach at a guide dog school. It’s my job to teach the foster homes how to raise a dog. In addition, I help owners with the behavior problem of their dogs. I have several years of experience as a dog caretaker in an animal shelter. Of course, any dog can get separation anxiety, but it is unfortunately very common in dogs that have been adopted. Many owners and their dogs struggle with this problem and there are still far too few trainers with a good knowledge of separation anxiety. This is one of the reasons why I chose to specialize in this subject. I want to help you and your dog! I believe in this method of dealing with separation anxiety because it is animal-friendly and ensures that your dog experiences as little stress as possible. If you would like my help, feel free to contact me anytime! Greetings Birgit
