Source of Inspiration

Samantha was inspired to become a dog trainer in her late teens after getting a dog with severe separation anxiety. Her desire to understand and help her dog led her to study canine behavior. Fascinated by the intricacies of the canine mind, she became passionate about learning why dogs behave the way they do.
