Sama Dog's mission is to expand and improve
the wellbeing of dogs and their humans.

Our approach is based on traditional teachings from the East, namely Ayurveda,
integrated with a multitude of other holistic, natural and spiritual practices to cultivate balance and health.
We recognize dogs as our soulful companions, and shine a spotlight on the mutual impact dogs and humans
have on each other’s lives, families and overall wellness.

What We Do

Sama Dog provides behavioral education and services to help dogs, via their human companions, to foster and maintain balance, or “Sama,” in body, mind and spirit. The state of Sama promotes optimal physical and mental health, positive behavior and an expanded human-canine relationship. We strive to be your resource for holistic, natural, overall pet care. 

Ayurveda: The Science of Life

Our teachings are inspired by the 5,000-year-old holistic healing system known as Ayurveda, which offers timeless wisdom and practical tools for exceptional overall wellbeing – both human and canine. The sister-science to yoga and meditation, Ayurveda provides a soulful, whole-being approach for maintaining dynamic balance and lifelong vitality.

Our Founder

Amanda Ree Ringnalda has awakened to the deep connection humans have with animals, and seeks to help spread this awareness and healing wisdom throughout the world. During a decade of studying under Dr. Deepak Chopra, Amanda started dog-human matchmaking through her non-profit dog rescue organization SoulPlayMates. Then she founded Sama Dog in 2016 as a platform to teach wellbeing and balance through Ayurveda for dogs and their humans.

Our Intention

Our intention is to build a community of like-hearted beings who come together to shift the paradigm of human-animal connection and pet care, and to inspire a sense of compassion in each individual's approach to animal welfare. If your heart recognizes and feels the truth in these words, it is to you I am speaking. I’m so glad we’ve found one another.
