Alice has been the best thing to happen to us and our three fur babies! Before Alice, we could never walk the three of them together without being pulled or having a breakdown before the end of their walk. Fast forward to to now, one person can easily walk all three of our dogs at once. Just as a reference, our heaviest is 130lbs and the other two are 80lbs each. She is so patient and so knowledgeable and will provide the best no bullshit training for your dogs. She worked with us individually and corrected our behavior so we can be the best parents to our dogs. She is simply the best! Having taken both individual and group classes with Alice, I can happily say what a difference she has made in improving their behavior. We would recommend Alice to anyone looking to train their dogs!

Details: 2 - 10 years old • Extra large (70+ lbs) • Private lessons • Aggressive behavior modification • Barking • Digging • Biting • Leash pulling • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

I have a Siberian Husky, that I wanted to train to become my sons service dog , After searching and sending a few e mails to a few trainers , I was happy to receive a response from Alice , we spoke over the phone and she answered all my questions and concerns. It was a huge relief to finally speak to someone who was knowledgeable in Nutrition as well as training ! Alice has been a huge blessing to our family , Everyone that sees my Husky Akira always compliments on how well behaved she is and trained . I thank God for allowing me to be able to work with Alice in training Akira , Alice is always available when I need some advice or questions , My son who has Autism, loves working with Alice in training Akira , he loves Alice and that means a lot to me , to us she’s not only our “dog trainer “ she’s part of our family !

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Small (16 - 25 lbs) • Private lessons • Therapy or service dog training • House training • Crate training • My home, venue, etc.

About halfway through our sessions with Alice and she's nothing short of amazing. I was very nervous to introduce our new puppy to our original guy and on the first session she took control and gave me the tools to be more confident. Four weeks later I'm happy to report the pups are getting along much better and I am able to handle them in ways I never thought I would. She has a great energy and the pups love her - even our original guy who is suspect of everyone! During our first session she provided us with some great nutritional and general dog education which was a nice change from the usual training. We work with our pups for a little each day to ensure her training doesn't go to waste. So far it's been worth every penny!

My fiance and I were extremely happy with the results of dog training with Alice we currently have two pit bulls and a Puggle and we're working together to try to be able to walk all three dogs at the same time as well as deal with a bit of female on female. Alice was a pleasure to work with as she took her time and customize the training to focus on our dogs our needs an hour goals in a short. Of time we were able to accomplish everything that we wanted. We were told by numerous vets that one of our pitbulls would be unable to live with other dogs Alice reassured us that she would do the best she could to help us achieve a comfortable situation for everyone involved and she did she fulfilled her promises and efficient way I would highly recommend Alice to anyone looking to train a new dog old dog or any dogs with issues as she is one of the best on the island we are very happy with our outcome
