We’ll work together to develop an individualized training program for your unique team and situation!
Get ready for success!
“Sarina has been instrumental in helping us. The shelter is now a very harmonious environment for the dogs, thank you Sarina! We’re SO chuffed to have you on board, it’s really been a game changer.”– Sally Ella Horn, PATA Sámara Animal Rescue
Want your dog to enjoy more activities?
Need help getting out and about?
If your dog is hesitant about new places, things, or people – and you dread trips in the car or going to the vet or groomer – I will support you both to build more confidence.
“Sarina Samson is awesome – I’ve seen her work and it is nothing short of miraculous how she can help a dog feel safe and able to deal.”– Susan Skurka Marco
For dogs who need a stronger foundation to venture into the world anxiety-free, we’ll create an individualized, step-by-step plan of controlled socialization and environmental exposure exercises.
Chronic stress has been linked to decreased lifespan and poor health conditions in dogs. By helping your nervous pup develop neutral responses to stimuli, you will both enjoy more activities and safeguard his health.
Live your best life, together!
Want an Adventure Dog (or Cat)?
Want to include your dog in everything?
For pets with basic good manners ready to take it to the next level! Whether you want your good doggo to ride in a sidecar, stand up paddle board, or ocean kayak with you, I can help your dog live her best life by becoming a more active part of yours.
Whatever your sport, we’ll explore where your team is your training journey then develop a step-by-step plan so you can both adventure, together!
Get Ready, Get Set, GO!
“In just two short weeks Sarina Samson changed the whole dynamic of the dogs… they are now calm, crate trained and walk amazing. Whereas before? Well let’s just say it wasn’t this way, and it’s now a pleasure.”– Jen Rae

Sparky goes for a ride
After we’ve developed your dog’s individualized training plan together, you will be on your way. I will provide virtual support for 4 weeks while you work toward your goals, but after that you can schedule a follow up consultation for questions, challenges, or any other help along the way.
You got this!
“My 8 month old puppy was not responding to his basic commands (sit, down, stay) as well as he usually did during training and Sarina noted that he seemed anxious…
She suggested that I feed half of his food before training and use praise and scritches instead of just food. She recommended useful articles and videos and really helped me expand my knowledge with regards to balanced training!“– Jenny Kuan
“Sarina is very clear, knowledgeable and supportive. My rescue dog was afraid of some things, reactive to other dogs, and not a good walker on leash. The local animal rescue group recommended Sarina based on feedback from others who had adopted from their program.
My dog is a delight to walk now! Better on every issue and so smart. We can teach her to do almost anything now that we have the techniques in mind. This morning my husband was watching us and said, ‘She has turned into the perfect dog for you!’ ”– Cher Compton
