Sammye is an excellent trainer and a kind, conscientious, and compassionate person. She has good and clear communication through the process. Her work made it possible for a shelter dog with extreme, destructive separation anxiety to become adoptable. Rina has a great life now, and Sammye made that possible!
My name is Sammye Darling and I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer Knowledge and Skills Assessed (CPDT-KSA) who has over a decade of experience with training dogs. My passion began with rescuing homeless dogs making them more adoptable and helping the adoptions stick and training service animals for individuals with disabilities. I founded my own 501c3 non-profit in 2015 to do just that!
My training is geared towards each client and dog individually. I create training plans to achieve goals or behavior modifications with the owners to enhance owners' skills and the human-animal-bond with their beloved dogs. I provide followup emails that details the information we covered in our lessons. In addition to one-on-one training, I enjoy teaching group and zoom classes, and board-and-training in my home and owners' homes.
I help dog owners with dogs that are commonly described as high energy, overly excited, distracted, impulsive, fearful, stressed, anxious, reactive or dog aggressive. I help owners with concerns including but not limited to barking, whining, potty training, teething, destructive when alone, jumping, lunging, on people, pulling on or biting the leash, digging in the yard, counter surfing or stealing of food or objects, darting out doors, resource guarding, and fence, leash or dog aggression.
