About Us


Samantha Smith - Owner & Trainer

Sam has always had a passion for working with animals.  She grew up surrounded by dogs and cats in her home and also enjoyed riding horses and competing with them locally and nationally until she went to college.  As an adult, Sam focused more on working with dogs and this sparked her passion for dog training.  She volunteered with a local Pit Bull rescue in New York for several years where she gained a lot of experience handling and training before she was approached by her former business partner and started their business, CaNine to Five, in Saratoga County, New York.  Sam was the co-owner and lead trainer there for four years.  During that time, Sam also began another endeavor learning and competing with her Pit Bulls, Belgian Malinois, and German Shepherds in the dog sport IPO which involves tracking, obedience, and protection.  Sam then moved to Connecticut and started Integrity K9 Training to continue persuing her passion of training and breeding dogs!
