I could not say how thankful my wife and I are to find Alyssa. We had our year old standard schnauzer Oliver trained with the basic sit, stay and lay down before we found Alyssa. Oliver had some issues when meeting other dogs/animals as well as loose leash training and being out in public and as anyone knows the schnauzer bread is VERY stubborn. I was very concerned we would not be able to have him be a social dog like my wife and I wanted. We decided to do the 4 week option and let me tell you the value that you get is next to none. I swore she brought us back a new dog that is confident and listens to our commands in high distraction situations. What I found amazing is he now sticks to us like glue when we give the heal command when before he would be pulling the leash the entire time. Alyssa was very patient and very responsive to our questions and concerns and we now understand how to continue the training at home. I can't recommend this training enough and urge anyone who is concerned of any aggression/behavioral issues.

My dog Jake went to Alyssa for the four week stay and train and came back a different dog! Before he jumped all over people when they entered the house and would constantly bark at us to get our attention. Anytime we would take him anywhere it was a struggle and hassle because he wouldn’t listen and just tried to jump on everyone. We can now have people come over and not have to worry about him tackling them when they walk through the door. He knows what is expected of him and we know how to let him know what we expect. I’m so happy and grateful for everything she has done to help him be the great companion I knew he could be. I cannot say enough good things about the experience

If you are looking for dog training then look no further than Primetime K9. We contacted Alyssa given a recommendation from a friend and couldn’t be happier with our decision. We first had our (COVID) puppy, Pete, stay with Alyssa for 4 weeks to work on staying in place, heel, leave it, come, sleeping through the night and other tricks as well. Pete is doing great back at home. And the training went so well that we decided to send our 6 year old dog, Ginger, to Alyssa as well to get training for her reactiveness to other dogs, not to bark at the doorbell, door knocking and other sounds, and staying in place. Ginger did great with all of her training. We can now walk Ginger around the neighborhood and not have her start barking and lunging at other dogs that we pass. Ginger now is focused on us during the walk which is a huge adjustment. In the morning I now am able to have both dogs stay in their respective places while I get their breakfasts out, start the coffee, etc. It has made the morning a much more calm process and enjoyable for everyone in our family. Whenever we have some things to get done around the house and don’t want the dogs wandering, we can put them in their places and they are content until we say “Free”. We highlight recommend Primetime K9 if you need any dog training whether it be for puppies or older dogs. Alyssa was great to work with and very responsive to all of our questions. Thank you Alyssa for all of your help!

Amazing and life changing! She is so good at training, following up, training through calm and consistent behaviors without using yelling but instead understanding what the dog really needs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to start with a phone evaluation to discuss your goals for training. I also offer in person training evaluations. Once we decide on a program, I require half of the total as a deposit to hold your start date.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have my professional dog training certification through the Tom Rose School. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Communications through Lindenwood University. After college I completed an internship at a wildlife sanctuary.
