THE CANINE COLLEGE - SAMANTHA'S SERVICES
INTRODUCING SAMANTHA RAWSON AND THE CANINE COLLEGE
What our customers say
We brought our 10 month old Cocker Spaniel to Samantha for help after we had lost all hope with his difficult behaviour in every area. We attended Samantha for four sessions and she was so understanding and helpful with everything. He is one now and she has helped us to be able to manage him better at home, walk properly on the lead, get on better with our other puppy. Samantha has also given us advice and ideas on handling and before we went to her we could barely pick him up and after finishing the sessions we managed to groom him properly and he now loves being held. I would recommend The Canine College to anyone as Samantha is not only an expert in training but clearly loves what she does and cares greatly for the dogs. Samantha is a pleasure to deal with and would be the first person I would go to again for any canine problems.
We have a nine-year-old terrier, Milly, that we thought was a hopeless case. Very anxious, non-stop barking. Samantha came to our house for a couple of hours to assess her, gave us a lot of advice on how to handle Milly and to correct her behaviour and after just one week Milly has now changed so much for the better. Samantha also sent us some articles that have been very helpful. We totally recommend Samantha! She’s great!
We invited Samantha to our home to see our seven-month-old ‘wild as a March hare’ Cocker Spaniel. We bought it for our eight-year-old old daughter who was struggling to manage her. Samantha gave us some great tips (4-5 key takeaways specific to our dog) which are making all the difference. We are first time dog owners and wish we had engaged Samantha’s services earlier. A true professional.
We brought our Collie puppy Susie to Samantha for private classes once lockdown ended. Susie is a puppy with attitude and a mind of her own. She is high energy and super friendly (as in ‘knock them down’ friendly). However, she was terrified of cars, tractors and machinery so walking her on the roads with her was next to impossible. As I love to walk and as we need her to live safely with our grandchild, we turned Samantha for help. Samantha was great. She is so experienced, knowledgeable and really practical. She is also good fun and we really enjoyed the sessions. We learned what to do to have a happy, balanced pet that is a good fit with our family and understands that the world doesn’t revolve around her.
Samantha is very professional and easy to work with. I brought my nervous German Shepherd to her thinking he would be too bad to fix, but with Samantha’s help he is now the perfect best friend and is completely reliable off lead so we can go for long walks and he can have an adventure too. I thought we would never be able to leave the property with him, but Samantha has helped us achieve so much with him. Great value for money as she gives so much information in every lesson and you never feel rushed.
