About Alex

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an AKC certified dog trainer, I work with dogs full-time, I have excellent references, and am trained in dog CPR and First Aid.
As an AKC trainer specializing in puppies, I can help your pup earn the STAR Puppy certificate, and the Canine Good Citizen designation.
Dogs at my home are given daily walks, lots of play time, and we don't allow any aggressive dogs or bullies. (I'm trying to create an atmosphere of safety and harmony, so if any dog disrupts our calm home with pushy behavior, constant barking, or destructive behavior, I will try to help the dog adjust, but if they can't relax here I can't continue to sit for them. It's not fair to the rest of the dogs, and to my wife :)
Please note that I cannot accept pit bulls for training or sitting, as they scare the other dogs and clients too much.
I will send you pictures and videos of your dog playing and taking long walks, my goal is to keep your dog safe and comfortable, I love playing games with dogs almost as much as they love it!
I love all dogs, and have experience with just about every breed and age, from mastiff to miniatures, from puppies to seniors, I can care for your dog in my safe, comfortable home. :)

I love Alex! Ollie has a fantastic time there every time we book, and is so tired by the time he comes home!
Alex was wonderful. Bentley had so much fun he came home and slept for hours. Alex sent me photos and video constantly to let me know how he was. We will definitely be back to visit Alex again soon. Thanks so much!
Alex did a great job with my two little guys! They often get nervous when I leave, but he made sure they were well taken care of. I loved all the picture updates I got.
