Hi, I’m Alison
While the majority of my career has been in the capacity of animal care, through dog walking/pet sitting, veterinary technician, and dog daycare, I have always been enthusiastic about helping dog owners solve problems they are experiencing with their dogs. I generally did this through casual conversations with the client while their dog was in my care. I found that I just could not help, or relay the information, in the amount needed to have a positive effect without digging deeper into the dog’s home life.
Why In-Home Dog Training?
I had been training in Relationship Based Behavior Modification and decided to take my training and knowledge into my client’s home where I could make real change. The results I have seen in the relationships my clients have with their dogs has been amazing, humbling, and heart-warming. To see the happiness and love between a human and their dog once they’re able to understand each other is the best feeling in the world. I’ve also been lucky to make some new friendships along the way!
A Little Bit About Me
When I am not running my dog daycare or practicing in-home behavior modification, I am the mother of two human teenagers and two dogs. I spend my free time out in nature with the dogs, organic gardening, cooking, swimming, skiing, reading, crafting, and sewing. I’m a native of New England (yes I love snow, sorry) and have been raising my kids and dogs in Littleton, MA for 20 years.
