Alex has a unique philosophy on dog training that considers you and your dog in a reciprocal relationship. He is very observant and intuitive. It’s not about making your dog “obedient”, but about building real trust.Apr 15, 2018Verified
Alex is an excellent trainer - he's professional, knowledgeable, courteous, very interested in helping you and your dog bond in a positive way. My fearful rescue dog has made great progress in the 6 weeks we've been working with Alex. Everything is going well. Would DEFINITELY hire him again. Have recommended him to several friends.Dec 28, 2016Verified

Alex has been helping me improve my happiness as well as my dogs. I have seen greatly improved behavior from my dog and we are still working at getting where we want to be. I feel more confident every week!Apr 12, 2017Verified
Our dog, Nala, became really protective and aggressive about a year after we adopted her from the Humane Society. Since working with Alex, we see that she lacked confidence and assurance in her place in the family because we were not affectively communicating to her our own leadership and strengths. Alex has taught us so much. He has extensive knowledge of how dogs behave in the wild, a keen sense of people's (and dog's) emotions, and he continues to prove his commitment to us every week by holding us accountable to doing the work. My pack is infinitely better off thanks to his coaching.Jan 22, 2018
