I do want to give my feedback: – your approach to working with both of us was balanced, insightful, and straightforward. At some level you are inserting yourself into a family relationship. That’s tricky. You do it very well. I also admire your respectful, non-threatening approach to handling dogs.
Paul and Harriet

Je souhaite donner mes impressions : votre approche en travaillant avec nous deux était équilibrée, perspicace et franche. Jusqu’à un certain degré, vous vous insérez dans une relation de famille. C’est délicat. Vous avez très bien réussi. J’admire aussi votre approche respectueuse et non menaçante pour entraîner les chiens.

A sincere “merci beaucoup” for your excellent coaching these past weeks. The sessions, conveniently held at our home were tailor-made for our circumstances. Your quiet, gentle yet confident presence set both Amélie and I at ease. As a direct result, Amélie herself has grown in confidence and looks forward to her daily “playtime”. Our relationship deepens daily as well. We look forward to sharing the joy of each new learning opportunity. Such gifts will easily carry us into the weeks ahead and beyond.
Gratefully
Joan and Amélie


Un sincère “merci beaucoup” pour vos excellents cours particuliers de ces dernières semaines. Les cours, qui ont eu lieu pour notre convenance dans notre maison, étaient adaptés à nos besoins.
Votre présence calme, gentille et pleine de confiance nous a mis Amélie et moi-même à l’aise. Comme résultat direct, Amélie a pu reprendre confiance et attend avec impatience son moment quotidien de jeux. Notre relation s’est aussi approfondie jour après jour. Nous attendons de pouvoir partager la joie de chaque nouvelle occasion d’apprendre. De tels cadeaux nous accompagnerons dans le futur.
Avec reconnaissance,
Joan et Amélie

Samantha Pyke speaks dog! Her native English and fluent French are helpful but her ability to speak dog and to teach us the basics of it is her true value. Sam’s approach is beyond traditional teaching of commands and tricks. She helped us to understand how dogs think and respond to human interaction. We always got along quite well with our dog but now we have even a greater everyday rapport with Abby since we, too, can speak some dog.

Thank you, Sam!

Samantha Pyke parle chien ! Sa langue maternelle anglaise et son français courant lui sont d’une grande aide, mais sa capacité de parler chien et de nous en enseigner les principes fondamentaux est sa vraie valeur. L’approche de Sam est au delà des méthodes traditionnelles d’enseignement des commandes et des tours. Elle nous aide à comprendre comment les chiens pensent et inter-actent avec les hommes. Cela c’est toujours plutôt bien passé avec notre chien, mais maintenant nous avons amélioré notre relation quotidienne avec Abby depuis que nous pouvons aussi parler chien.
Merci Sam!
John, Eric, Abby de Paris

The “Just for Fun” sessions were thoroughly enjoyable and informative!

Les cours “Juste pour le Fun” étaient tout à fait agréables et instructifs !

I just wanted to let you know how much Bubbles and I enjoyed our Just For Fun class. This is now the fifth class I have taken with you (Educational Walks, Doggy Dancing, Agility and Tracking).   These classes have been a great complement to the private classes that took place my home, when Bubbles was a puppy.  Each of these classes has allowed us to learn in a fun — yet educational — atmosphere.

Bubbles found them stimulating and enjoyed each one, which is an accomplishment in itself!   I have also benefitted from the classes and have learned how to understand some of the signals that Bubbles sends, and to know what to look for in other dogs. I particularly like the fact that you use positive reinforcement as your core training method.   Bubbles and her fellow classmates all seemed to respond very well to this approach.

Claire and Bubbles
