Hi I’m Samantha
I founded The Great OutPaws in 2016.
Along side me is my Daughter Emily . Emily has over 2 and a half years of experience with the great outpaws. From shadowing on walks- to assisting me with training, and now walking her own groups she really is a fabulous addition to the gang.
Dog walking had been a dream of mine for a long time. And following the loss of my Nana in 2015 I felt it was time to review my life and do the thing I wanted to do most.
Just under a year later I started out on my very first job.
Dog walking takes commitment and determination to build up from scratch. But the benefits far outweigh those first few months of wondering if you will ever make it.
So here I am! Doing what I love best. I’m here to help you feel safe in the knowledge your Dog is well cared for.
I am a Member of the ‘Institute of Modern Dog Trainers’. We are proud to work with the ‘Uk Dog Behaviour Charter’. This promotes and holds Dog Trainers acountable for the use of Ethical , Science based Training methods.
It allows owners to source the best in Pet Professionals.
Before I set out on my Journey
As a Pet Professional I asked myself what I would look out for in a walker or trainer?
How would I want my Pets to be cared for?
Someone trustworthy , understanding of my dogs individual needs and all about giving them a full and enriching time whilst out on their walk.
So with that in mind I set out to offer you a service that reflects just that.
Our Dogs are everything to us.
And with the recent climate due to Covid-19 we have become increasingly attached to our pets. They have helped us through some rough days, been the constant in our lives when we have been unsure of everything else. And even after Covid-19 we will still turn to our dogs for comfort.
Being reassured they are with someone trustworthy whilst you are away is my promise to you.
That promise to you is to continue with my Professional Development. Be up to date with modern ethical training methods. This doesn’t only apply to dog training – it applies to the welfare of your dog on walks and in my care just as importantly. Ensuring their welfare and happiness is number one!
“Sam is amazing.
She is a fantastic trainer and really knows her stuff.
Not only is Sam a great trainer and dog walker but she goes above and beyond for her customers and the dogs. She really loves all dogs and can not do enough for them or the owners.
She is one of life’s selfless people and is a real softie when it comes to dogs. Sam has worked so hard with my boy to make things work for him.
Fantastic service and fantastic person.
Thank you So much. “
