We here at On the Leesh are huge dog lovers. Just about everyone on staff has a dog of their own. So, our collaboration with expert dog trainer Sam Schmidt was a no-brainer. Training dogs (and people) since 1985, Sam is a native New Yorker with two beautiful dogs of her own. While Sam's approach is individual so she can ensure she's meeting every dog's needs, she's found that people tend to ask her the same general questions. Because of that, Sam thought podcasts would be the best way to reach the most people at one time.If you're having an issue with your dog that we haven't touched on here, either write us at info@ontheleesh.com or contact Sam directly by visiting samsdogs.com.
