I am very excited about working with Alyssa. Upon opening the front door to meet her for our first consultation, I sensed immediately that she is compassionate and cares deeply for animals. My dogs took to her right away and were at ease. She exudes a wonderful, loving energy. She whole-heartedly understands that our dogs are more than just pets...they are family. I am 150% confident that she will help us through our puppy's separation anxiety in a way that will foster our love for both our dogs and our desire to have happy, healthy pets.

About

Most of my experience is hands on with Rescue dogs whom I have fostered and helped through the German Shepherd Rescue of Central Fl and also K-9 services German Shepherd Rescue of Green Cove Springs, Fl. I have worked in the shelters doing behavior modification, grooming and counseling potential adopters. I had a dominant dog who was displaying aggression toward people and other animals. I was told by trainers he would never get along with another dog or other animals and would need to be locked up when people were visiting. I did not believe that was true. My dog had a wonderful temperament as a puppy and I knew there was something I was doing wrong and I was determined to get through to him and communicate what i wanted..to make that connection and bond with him, which I did. I have seen so many dogs in shelters and most of the time it was for simple behavior problems that could have easily been corrected. I want to help people to correct these problems and I don't give up easily. There is always an answer. I was told by so many trainers to give up my dog and that it was his temperament & he was a liability. I refused to believe them and I would not give up on finding a solution. I did realize I needed to be a responsible dog owner & have control of my dog at all times. At 115 lbs of solid muscle Bearon was a handful. I kept searching for answers with the resources I had. Most of the time the solution is so simple its hard to see it until someone points it out to you. 99.9% of the time..it is not the dog, it's never the dog causing the problems. People are just not sure how to correct them and need direction and solutions. Its not always easy to see what you're doing wrong and it helps to have an outside perspective...someone who does not have an emotional attachment to your dog. I adore all animals and love working with them. My own pets are my family and I would never give up on them. Its a life time commitment. I have never had a dissatisfied client. I have never come across a dog or client I was not able to help. I have over 15 years of experience and knowledge which I pass on to my clients to resolve the issues they are having. I love helping people resolve behavior problems so they can enjoy their well behaved dog. It takes a great stress away from the home and I can definitely emphasize with most of my clients because I have experienced much of the same.

About

I am well versed in the evidence based behavior modification techniques behind modern training including positive reinforcement, operant conditioning, counter conditioning and desensitization. I am excellent at communicating the real world methods involved to my clients. There is nothing more satisfying to me than helping a dog owner to build a better relationship with their dog based on skillful training and trust. I walk out of every training session feeling like I am doing what I am meant to do.

About

I have experience in both animal hospital and animal shelter settings. I've seen, done, and handled things that other dog walkers and pet sitters have not handled, and I am not phased by many things that some others may fear. I get to work with animals! I love playing with dogs and I love playing in the snow...I get paid to play in the snow with dogs!!
