Expert Dog Training
Fear, separation anxiety, and reactivity are increasingly common in the dogs we see in society, but it doesn’t have to be that way! The right training structure can bring these dogs out of their shell, and make life more enjoyable for both you and your dog. Behavior modification programs are available to those with aggressive dogs or those struggling with other behavior issues.
We have a program for every lifestyle, ranging from group classes to extensive boarding school programs.
Kentucky Dog Training L.L.C. is proud to offer services to Lexington, Louisville, central Kentucky, and the surrounding area.
About Your Trainer: Samantha Adams
Sam has been training dogs for over 12 years, and brings a tremendous amount of experience to the table. She got her start in the rescue world, working with dogs who were in shelters. While running transports, volunteering at events, and fostering pets, Sam developed a passion for animal behavior. She took this passion into other fields, and has worked as a veterinary assistant, as well as a member of the foaling staff at renowned Dromoland Farm in Lexington. While working with rescue dogs, Sam was also beginning to compete with her own dogs. Her first dog, Zoe (Reality Check OA OAJ CGC CL1-R) was rescued from a situation where she was living feral in the woods. She went on to title in agility, be a 4-H state gold medalist, national championship qualifier, and compete in 6 different dog sports.
Sam’s current competition dog is Wild (D’Wildcat 16130 IGP3 x3), who competes nationally in the sport of IGP. The sport consists of a combination of tracking, obedience, and protection, and is one of the most difficult dog sports in the world. At just 4 years old, Wild placed 3rd at Regionals and 5th at Nationals last year, which earned him a spot on the world championship team. This makes Sam the only trainer in Kentucky to be actively competing with a malinois at the national and international level. Our competition in France was unfortunately canceled due to the pandemic, but we are eagerly working toward competing in Greece next year.
Sam has worked under top trainers in the dog world, and has helped more than a thousand dogs reach new levels of training. She has worked with everything from very young puppies, to older dogs with severe aggression. Her training has been nationally recognized, with clients sending dogs from as far away as Massachusetts, New York, California, Georgia, and Ohio. Sam continues to provide the best quality care and training possible, and strives to improve the lives of dogs all over the bluegrass.

“Sam took my sweet dog, Dot, a 90-pound American Foxhound that had been living feral in the woods for about 2 years (long story there!), and worked a miracle! After trianing with Sam, Dot walks on a lead without pulling me off my feet, sits, stays, and places like a civilized girl. I don’t know how I could have kept Dot without her. I recommend Sam in the strongest possible terms.”
“Sam is an amazing trainer. When we rescued my dog he was a huge mess. He was barking non-stop every time he saw a human being, near or far. If a person got close enough, my dog would bite them. If he saw other dogs, he would lose it too. Sam transformed our dog from near hopeless to an extremely well behaved, happy and calm dog! He doesn’t bite, he never barks at people and is a completely different dog.”
“A proven world class competitor and trainer in dog obedience and behavior. You will not find another trainer in the area with her unique skill set. As a competitive trainer, certified protection sport decoy and dog lover myself, there is nobody in Kentucky that I would recommend more.”
