About Me

My life with dogs started around 20 years ago when I found a picture of a big yellow Labrador Retriever in the Courier newspaper. I rushed to the facility to get him. He was jumping straight up and down in his kennel barking. I had to have him. I didn’t know much about training a dog at this time, but I vowed to learn. He lived to be fifteen(15) years old and he was well known  in the neighbourhood for his antics.

"Alix started walking and training our puppy at 6 months old

Her approach is balanced and she always takes the time to share her strategies, which support us in carrying on the training at home.  Our puppy has responded so well, and is a beautiful, fit and well socialized dog thanks to Alix.  Rain or shine Alix is always ready to take our pup on a great adventure and our dog loves her and is so excited to see her each time.  This is our family’s first dog and I could not imagine Alix not being part of our dog training journey.  I am thankful every day!"

"Alix is great with my pup, Nubs, who had a pandemic problem: fear, which was sometimes expressed in aggressiveness towards other dogs. Alix's calm and direct instruction has made huge improvements in his behaviour. Nub's recall is excellent now and he rarely overreacts to other dogs. Plus he adores Alix and enjoys his time with her very much!"
