Dog Training

I am so happy with our session with Alejandro! We made such progress with Abbey in only 2 1/2 hours. I have been unable to walk her in the neighborhood for a while now because she was rearing up and barking/growling at other dogs. His training approach is easy, sensible, affordable, smart and it works! I really couldn't be happier with our outcome. Thank you Alejandro for solving my problem!

An AMAZING experience! Alejandro was exactly like the dog whisper. I learned so many strategies hands on and visually to teach my dog! I saw a dramatic change in my dog after a 3 hour session and made so much progress. I’m so happy with this experience and have all the information and physical techniques I need to continue training my dog without him :)

Alejandro did an amazing job assessing the underlying issues that may be causing our dog to be aggressive in certain situations. He was very thorough in his questioning and clearly detailed a plan to follow on our own. He patiently showed us some simple actions to take to correct the root cause of the problem. He is very kind and easy to talk to which made the session enjoyable and ultimately we now feel we have clear direction on how to proceed. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

My session with Alejandro went fantastic. He gave me the encouragement I needed to take back my alpha status. He answered every question I had and he was great with my 3 dogs!

Met with Pupsties trainer yesterday and it was absolutely worth the investment! I thought I had an aggressive dog on my hands but Pupsties was able to help identify Frida’s insecurities and sensitivity. He showed me how to better lead/correct and to stop unwanted behavior. I’m so very please and grateful for his help, I saw immediate improvement. Highly recommend Pupsties services. Happy dog, happy owner!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is per session. Sessions are up to 3 hrs. Typically clients require at least 2-3 private sessions to get a good handle of the problem. If the dog requires more in depth work, there is a board and train option that could be priced depending on the severity of the issue. Additional distance/time driving surcharge.

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

    My process is to listen to my customers, find out what their goals are, understand their problems and the propose a plan/strategy to accomplish the goal. Working with many dogs has taught me that all of them progress at different rates and each of them take a different amount of time depending on the dog.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    A veteran of the oil and gas industry, I have long dreamt of dedicating my work to dog rehabilitation. After finding Nacho (male boxer) and Tana (female boxer) on the streets of Midland, TX, I responsibly and diligently attempted to find their owners. After my search yielded no results, I adopted them both into his family, carefully rehabilitating Nacho’s aggression and Tana’s anxiety. A few years later, I discovered Coyo (male Carolina dog) wandering the streets of Houston, TX. After his owner was not found, Alejandro welcomed Coyo into his growing pack. Born out of my lifelong passion for working with dogs I created Pupsties, my family-owned small business, which pulls from my background of rehabilitating my own dogs, as well as those of family and friends. Through Pupsties, I am eager to share my knowledge with other dog owners.
