The DogHouse has added a new trainer to our Team – Meet Samantha Adams

Samantha Adams, Assistant Trainer/Kennel Manager

My passion for dog training began 7 years ago when I started working with a young rescue dog, Zoe, to overcome fear and socialization issues. Ever since then I have been absolutely hooked!
Since 2009, I have been growing my knowledge as a professional Dog Trainer.
I received extensive experience with rescue dogs early in my career, and I find true enjoyment to this day helping fearful and nervous dogs become more confident.
I have been a live-in employee at multiple boarding and training facilities caring for dogs
and teaching obedience classes. I even had the incredible opportunity of being an apprentice with Todd Dunlap, a leading working dog trainer in the United States, for several months.

Outside of dog training, I have a diverse background in animal care and husbandry. I have worked extensively with horses and dairy cattle and spent 2 years working as a veterinary technician. I am Red Cross certified in pet first aid and CPR, and have a formal education in Animal Science and Health.

I was able to achieve several Agility and Obedience titles with Zoe, and competed with dogs in Flyball. I now have two dogs, who are my absolute passion, Modoc and D’Wildcat, which I train in the sports of Agility and Mondio Ring.

I am very excited to be at The Doghouse, and eager to pursue my passion of helping people achieve better communication relationships with their dogs
