Samuel has extensive experience training dogs in both an individual and a group setting. Over the course of his career, he has honed his skills in behavioral work, specializing in complex anxiety, reactivity, and play dynamics by working with hundreds of dogs to increase their success as companion animals. Because of his skill in working with both humans and dogs, Samuel has gained recognition in Portland as one of the city’s premier trainers in the area of separation anxiety and dog-dog reactivity. Samuel’s passion is helping fearful and insecure pups reach their full potential, as well as helping puppies on their way to becoming well balanced dogs. Samuel and his scraggly terrier, Rick, have discovered nose work, and are enjoying sniffing out all the excellent adventures that Oregon has to offer. Samuel is also passionate about helping clients find low-cost, everyday opportunities for enrichment to compliment the behavioral work that they are engaged in with their dogs.
