About

I am a certified dog trainer who graduated from the Animal Behavior college and well, LOVE dogs! I am in the business of creating the best outcome for dogs and their owners. Well behaved dogs are less likely to be re-home and behavioral issues are the number one killer of dogs.

I highly recommend Alex!  He changed my dog's life! My dog went from being impossible to walk to being a well behaved,  friendly, obedient walking partner in just a month.  We are both forever grateful!

Alex aka The Dog Sensei is amazing! He just taught me how to train my 3 month old puppy. He takes the time to learn about the pup and figure out what’s the best plan moving forward. He gave me great resources that I will continue using to help my pup be the best pup he can be! More...

Alex is Amazing!! Professional, responsive, thoughtful and went above and beyond his services. CoCo had more energy when Alex took care of her and I am trying to follow in his footsteps. He did a great with CoCo, the house and even Zoie (my cat). Highly recommend his services and I just love him!! More...

Alex is fantastic! Bella and I learn so much during our training sessions. He always provides a meaningful rationale for every task or command he teaches. I have seen some amazing growth with my rescue dog who can be quite difficult at times. I highly recommend Alex. You will not be disappointed. If you follow his training methods consistently you will see results. More...

I contacted Alex to teach my husband and I how to loose leash train our 4 month old Wire Fox Terrier, Pippi. Pippi took to Alex immediately. He is a very nice guy and was so kind and gentle with Pippi. We got many tips from Alex, including how to calm down the puppy, how to divert unwanted behaviour, as well as socialization tips. Alex is very personable, professional, was on time for our appointment and has very fair pricing. We would not hesitate to contact him again for any training needs. We all enjoyed our session with him! I would highly recommend Alex. More...

Alex is a natural-born dog whisperer, and I am so fortunate to receive his help with a highly energetic Lab pup. As a cat person, I fail at dog parenting so I was in desperate need for help when I reached out to Alex. He is simply amazing with both dogs and humans. The puppy connected with him instantly, and I have been following Alex's lesson plans and exercises to great success. Above everything, I am following Alex's pointers in building a connection with the puppy, and being more patient. Alex does not simply teach off of a script--he made ample time to observe my interactions with the puppy and offer pertinent advice and solutions. He knows a lot about the dog brain and he imparts information tidbits in a very engaging and relatable manner. He works well with dog parents of all levels and backgrounds. I highly recommend Alex for dog and dog parent training. He is professional, knowledgeable, relatable, and extremely reliable. I plan to continue working with him, and hopefully become a better dog parent. So glad I trusted the reviews here and wholeheartedly support 5 stars for Alex. More...

Alex is an exceptional trainer of dogs and people- I think the latter being the secret to success.  So many times people and dogs are functioning with different scripts, that the gap in understanding becomes a big stressed.  Alex is not only good for establishing fast rapport with the four legged types, he's able to explain to people WHY a dog may be doing what it's doing, as well as how to work with that reason to get to a goal.  Alex is not the sort to sound aloof, or to give the impression that it takes a special type of "dog person" to be good with dogs.  He's a fantastic Canine Ambassador, as well as punctual, affordable, and effective.

My husband and I planned a trip up to Victoria, BC last minute and we had no one to come and take our dogs to the doggy park. We left on Friday and on Friday (that same day), I contacted him about taking the dogs to the park. He replied right away and was able to meet me at my house within a half an hour. He was super flexible, sent pictures, and loved our two pups while we were away. My husband and I are very thankful that he was able to do this for us! We love our pups so much and we highly recommend him to anyone else needing a dog walker. More...

Alex was so good with my dog Manny! He showed me things I was doing wrong with him and helped correct many basic behaviors. It was all simple things too... but being aware and consistent has really helped our pup! Thanks so much Alex! More...

Alex was great with our pitbull puppy Brutus. He takes the time to get to know your dog and his individual needs. Highly recommend!

Alex is wonderful. He knows his stuff. He is patient and his instructions are very clear. We are already seeing improvement in our dogs. I would highly recommend Alex as a dog trainer. I has given up hope for our dogs to be well behaved. He restored our faith that we can have dogs who listen to us and obey. More...

Alex is super informative and worked very well with Ryder. He was able to tell me how to continue training him and was open to any questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for information on how to! He is very patient and I saw so much difference in the time he was here. Thank you!! More...

Alex is awesome and his approach to training is just what we needed. He shares his wisdom and focuses on what was important to us. He definitely has a way with dogs and they respond well to him. Being a new puppy parent can be stressful but rewarding at the same time and Alex was great with calming our fears and reassuring us that we were doing everything right. I highly recommend Alex!

Alex is the best! He has a true love for dogs, and it shows. Our dog, Mia, loves him so much that we’ve started referring to him as uncle Alex! When with him, you can expect your pooch to have fun, while being trained, so it’s always exciting for them and they beg you to see him again. I can certainly tell by how she wags her tail when she sees him how much Mia enjoys her time with Alex. Bonus, he always keeps you updated with pics and texts so you feel great about entrusting your four legged family member with Alex! Couldn’t recommend him highly enough! More...

Alex is extremely knowledgeable and not only helped us as new dog parents understand our puppy’s behavior but he also showed us techniques to implement immediately to aid in correcting naughty behavior. Alex is friendly and personable, and really listened to our concerns, fully answered all of our questions and gave product and training recommendations based on us and our dogs needs. I would highly recommend Alex for any of your dog training needs. More...

We accepted a new dog in our family, I thought I was pretty good at training dogs myself, but our Great Pyrenees Chloe was becoming a Great Pain-in-the-Rear-anees. Alex really helped us with her training. He showed us where we were unwittingly reinforcing behavior we did not want, gave us practical exercises, and attainable goals. Chloe is doing much better and we are much happier. Highly recommended! More...

Q&A

Knowing that I am potentially helping another dog stay our of a shelter. Plus the smiles and relief of the humans!

My passion for dogs mainly and the need to want to accomplish something successful and to be able to look back and say, I did that.

I am genuinely in love with dogs and it is important to me to make sure that they are treated with love and respect. I take the time to listen to your needs and work hard on building a solid relationship between pup and human.
