FAQs

What is your specialty?

Sam Win Win Dog Training 400pxI specialise in working with families to set up your home in a way that will help your dog be calm and relaxed.

I help with your confidence and control as dog owners so you can have a truly enjoyable life with your fabulous dog.

This methodology is a leading edge approach to behavior training to help you bring out the best in your best friend! 

We set up a win-win situation, where both family and dog benefit.

How does it work?

Usually I come to your home and work with you and your dog in person. This allows us to troubleshoot behaviors in your dog’s home setting:

During the session, I give you the keys to your dog’s mind and share tools and techniques to address specific behavior issues. I also offer support via phone/text/email/video for peace of mind.

Who needs to be there?

I strongly encourage all the members of your family who regularly deal with the dog to be there.  That way we can be sure we are all on the same page and can be consistent in the messages we give to your dog.

What if I have more than one dog?

All packages include all the dogs in your home (up to 3).  This method works on ALL dog breeds and at ALL stages of life.

How long does the training session last?

Typically 2 – 2 1/2 hours.

How many sessions will I need?

Usually (80% of the time) one session is all that is required.  Occasionally though 2 sessions are needed, this can be decided once your dog’s needs have been assessed.

What is your service area?

I’m happy to do In-home Consultations in Ohope, Whakatane, Opotiki, Kawerau, Rotorua, Tauranga (and all places in between), and I offer Train and Stay options at my boutique retreat in Eastern Bay of Plenty.

Will my dog be trained when you leave?

In the vast majority of cases, you will see definite improvements in your dog’s behavior while I’m there.  Sometimes with dogs who are very stubborn, it takes a little longer to see results but rest assured, they will come.  I will leave you with all the tools, including my aftercare support, you will need to make those changes permanent.

What if my dog needs more than one session?

The Silver or Gold Package may suit your situation best.  But this can be decided at the first consult. You will have the “keys to the kingdom”!   All you have to do is be consistent.   It’s such an amazing method! 

What support is available after you leave?

I will be readily accessible by phone and email for any queries you may have.

How do I pay you?

The most common way is through an on-line banking transfer.
