CHARLOTTE'S ADVENTURE-FOCUSED TRAINER
As owner and head trainer of A Dog's Life Training, it's my mission to make sure your dog is well-mannered. So you feel calm and in control, and they get to live a bigger, better life—right by your side.
Your success is our #1 priority.
That’s why when you work with us, it’s not a one-and-done situation. Not only do you get easy-to-follow lesson plans, in-home training, group classes, and amazing adventure excursions...
...but you also get follow-up support at any point, for the lifetime of your dog.
So rest easy. Should you ever have a problem with strange behaviors, the new-baby blues, or you just need a little extra support, send us a message. We’ll book a lesson to tackle whatever’s troubling you.
We promise our program will transform your dog’s behavior and strengthen your relationship. Because they’re not just dogs. They’re our very best friends.
Samantha took the time to get to know my dog and pinpoint exactly what his triggers are. I learned so much about dog body language from her—it's crazy what your dog is trying to tell you!! Samantha provided endless support in training my dog, and in teaching me exactly how to manage him.
...after I left behind a career working as a veterinary assistant.
My light-bulb moment came during a training class I did with my stubborn, destructive pup Ramsey. It felt like I was learning to speak a new language—one that helped Ramsey finally feel heard and understood.
After a year-long training internship, I accepted a job with one of Charlotte's premier dog-training facilities. I also doubled-down on my education, traveling to seminars and learning from several world-renowned trainers.
Those experiences prepared me to create my own training process, which I’ve used to successfully teach hundreds of pet-parents how to live more adventurous, fulfilling lives with their dogs.
