Samantha Walpole

I live in sunny South Africa.  I am a full time Animal Behaviourist, specialising in Canines, actually… specialising in the people who own the canines.

I am passionate about building relationships and building understanding between dogs and their owners.  Coaching people to see their pets behaviour from the dog’s perspective.  Creating relationships with collaboration and opening up effective communication.

Understanding and guiding my clients step by step to change behaviours kindly and successfully.  Teaching owners how to help their dogs live a happy and fulfilled life.

There is nothing more rewarding than sharing those WOW moments between owners and their dogs.

If you are visiting this page, despite all the research and Googling you have spent hours on, help is here to get you unstuck.


Samantha is currently completing an extensive business coaching course around the animal behaviour industry, improving coaching skills to pass on to her students.

She is passionate about continued education.

“The more I learn, the more I feel I need to learn”.
