The world of dog trainers is a tough one. They all say they can turn your dog into a tea-making, car driving circus performer, but if we had left Milo with Alex for long enough, for sure all those things would have come true. .. However, we had a few behavioural issues that needed ironing out before then.

Having found Alex on instagram, her infectious personality shone through in her stories with her sassy sidekick Wolfie and we didn't hesitate to get in touch and it was the best thing we have done for Milo since.

Milo struggled with crate time, recall, loose lead walking, confidence and biting. Over the course of 4/5 online sessions (during lockdown), Alex managed to turn our little 4 month old rascal into a cute responsive little boy who loves nothing more than showing off what he knows for a few treats.

If there was one thing Alex taught us, it was how we responded to Milo and what we could do to help understand and communicate with him. Positive reinforcement and plenty of patience (and deep breathing) has helped us encourage Milo to make his own good decisions.

We can't recommend Alex enough and will be turning to her on Milo's journey in life for anything he might need!

Alex is the best. Period. She not only knows dogs but is also genuinely invested in helping their families build safe, loving and long-lasting bonds. We brought home our 8 week old Cockapoo pup at the start of the lockdown in London and, as first time dog parents, we would have been lost and miserable if not for her invaluable guidance and training. She made an effort to understand us, our needs and daily routines, and worked with us and our pup together. It was never about commands and control but always about cues and connection. Despite being online, each session was insightful and productive thanks to the amazing Wolfgang who happily demonstrated everything for us. After each session, Alex sent us a summary for the week along with additional tips and tricks which are now part of our puppy reference binder! She patiently answered all our questions not just on training but also related to our own stress and anxieties as puppy parents. We have no doubt she has helped us lay an excellent foundation for our pup. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Working with Alex is the best start a pup can have in its life. She is truly the dog whisperer! More...

Alex to the rescue!

With the current situation and everyone being on lockdown, having adopted our foster puppy we were worried that we couldn’t get any help but after contacting Alex she suggested a video call.
She gave such great advice and guidance on how to keep our pup happy during quarantine and working through her worry with strangers on walks (plus much more!)

If you’re needing guidance about your dog, get in touch with Alex now, quarantine or not, she more then helped us out.

Alex is brilliant! We’re currently working with Alex over FaceTime and Skype to help us with our very anxious rescue poodle and couldn’t recommend her highly enough. After each session, we have a much better understanding of the reasons behind the behaviours and some seriously solid techniques in how to counter condition them, all of them kind and clear. Each session is followed with a detailed review and recap of the techniques which helps enormously with the practising, we confident and able to help our little pooch. We still have a way to go, but have noticed a huge improvement just after 3 short sessions and are really looking forward to more! Thanks so much Alex! More...

Alexandra is an outstanding dog trainer and I am sure if you want your dog to fly she can make that happen too!
She is seriously good at her job, patient and she can read and understand the mindset of any dog and I am confident she can train you dog as well!

Firstly I must apologise to Alex for taking so long to write this review! I honestly cannot thank her enough for all the help she gave me with our Vizsla Puppy Freddie. I contacted Alex after we began having some issues with Freddie refusing to get off of our couch and then growling at me when I tried to move him. We have a young family so I was a bit nervous that our lovely little pup was showing some signs of aggression so early on. This wasn't the case and the situation just needed to be managed correctly ... Alex totally put my mind and rest and we organised some sessions to help me understand how to communicate with Freddie better. There is no question that Alex truly has a very special way with animals. Freddie loved her from the second he met her and watching her with him was really quite magical! She was was instantly calming (not just for Freddie but for me also!!) Alex taught me so much during our sessions together and gave me the confidence to really enjoy being with Freddie not only at home but out on walks as well. It's been about a month since I last saw Alex and I think she would be so pleased with the progress Fedddie has made.... he's without question my best friend and being out walking with him is the highlight of my day! I really do owe this to Alex and would recommend her without hestitation. Aside from being fantastic with dogs, she's genuinely a lovely person and puts so much effort into the work she does. If you need help with your dog then call Alex... it will be the best thing you do! More...

Alex is incredible! I am so glad we found her and trusted our puppy's training with her. Phoebe's grown to be a calm well - tempered dog thanks entirely to Alex setting the right foundations for her, and for us too! We went for the full 5 session package and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I've had dogs in the past, "smart" breeds too, but without the right training they were miserable and made us miserable.Investing in Alex's training for your pup will return on your investment many times over, not just in the furniture you won't have to pay to replace because it got chewed down, but in peace of mind and joy of life for you and your pup!

Working with Alex the past few months has been an absolute dream! From the lead up to bringing home our puppy and throughout the training she has been nothing but helpful and consistently provided insightful advice and tricks as to how adapt with a dog at home. We've had Max a little over two months and the in the 6 weeks Alex has trained with us, Max has become so good at following commands as well as working on key training such a lead walking, recall and socialising with other dogs and people. I honestly can't think of a better trainer to go with! We are SO grateful to have had such invaluable training at the start of such an important part of a puppies life! More...

It was wonderful for Esther my cocker spaniel and me to work with Alex. We had 6 sessions covering all the basics I needed to learn to live happily with my new puppy and teach her how to live in our house in an enjoyable way. She is so knowledgeable and has such a natural way with dogs, confident, calm and kind. Professional and punctual - each jam packed session was followed up with a clear email to help you digest all the info and practise with your dog. Most of all it was fun and seeing the progress in my pup has been really rewarding. More...

Alex is an amazing person and an outstanding trainer!! In fact she is mich more than that! She is a magician who understands inside out what is going on in a dogs head. She has a lot of love for these 4 legged fellows. We had the full puppy package and my husband and I still cannot quite understand how she managed to teach our 10 week old whippet Zoe to listen and obey complex commands. And all was done with only positive reinforcement and lots of love. Akex is also very professional and well organised. After each session, within an hour or 2 she would follow up with a transcript of all we have learned which we found very useful .I cannot recommend Alex enough. The value she brings outweighs any fees. If you would like to build a great relationship with your dig and have an easy , smooth life with your new family member, please contact Alex! More...

Being a first time dog owner, Alex has made me feel very confident becoming a dog mum. She is so lovely and extremely knowledgeable and my little dachshund absolutely adored her. From socialising, house training, recall, to alone time, she covered every aspect of bringing up a puppy and always sent a detailed email after every session so everything we learnt was in writing and so easily remembered. She’s beyond excellent 100 % recommend her as a dog trainer More...

Alex came as a recommendation to us and was amazing! Not only is she highly knowledgeable about dogs, but the care and love she had for our fur baby shined through. Our mini dachshund puppy, Max adored her and responded quickly to her training. What I especially loved is that she sends a follow up email with full notes after each session and homework + follows up after to see how we are getting on so you really do make amazing progress. Alex truly cares about your training and dog journey with tips for busting boredom, ideas for keeping puppy happy based on his breed, etc. As a first time dog owner, this was the best money we spent and was incredibly helpful. I can't recommend lovely Alex enough!! More...

Alex has been helping me with some additional training for my adolescent dog, Monty. Her sessions have been informative and fun for both Monty and me. After just a couple of sessions and some practice at home we have already made great progress. I have been very impressed with Alex's training techniques and teaching style. She is a lovely person to be taught by and Monty adores her. Jo & Monty More...

Having recently adopted my first dog I was in need of some training both for ourselves and our little Yorkshire Terrier. I enrolled in a short course of one to one training lessons with Alex, we were in contact with Alex before we began the classes, she gave us advice regarding getting settled in the first few days which we found helpful. Since we've had our training we've found it very helpful and have learned a lot, Alex is always there to help by email or phone and I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a experienced dog trainer.

I found myself responsible for Rubens, a Jack Russell who can be a bit of a rascal, & had developed issues with other dogs. On a sighting we would weave our way across land in the opposite direction of dog traffic. Then serendipity bought us to Wolfgang's pack. Rubens now has regular outings & Alex has worked wonders, it’s a pleasure to go for walks, and be able to follow a chosen path! I knew he had been missing out on canine interaction, since joining the pack he has displayed much better manners & I can honestly say ‘he’s a good boy’.Rubens quantity of walks have improved & so has his quality of life. I had considered getting a dog walker for a while, & I am so glad I did; he is still a work in progress, but it's been a brilliant investment. It's great to get regular feedback, see that he is enjoying 'a dogs life’ & rest easy that his paws are in very safe and sound & hands. I am delighted that Rubens Russell is a much happier & healthier member of Alex & Wolfgang's pack. More...

I asked for Wolfgang's help training my 5 months old Yorkie puppy, and Alex was very helping. She has amazing, easy techniques for training. Very loving and gentle yet firm and helped my puppy learn lots of great tricks that are essential in all puppies' upbringing. She also gave me great general advise in regards to house training, behaviour and lead training. My puppy and I are very glad we seeked help from them. Would definitely recommend for family and friends :). More...

I use Wolfgangs Pack on an ad hoc basis to give my dog/furry friend a treat. From the moment I met Alex I was very reassured that Aoife would be in good hands and would thoroughly enjoy her day out. I have not been disappointed and neither has Aoife judging by the feedback , photos and videos that Alex has shown me. Alex is very professional and clearly loves her job. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this service. More...

Q&A

Dogs are my absolute passion and for me there's nothing better than working with a dog owner on raising a confident and happy canine companion or helping our furry friends to overcome behavioural issues and find their inner peace again.

My little friend and business partner Wolfgang, the JackPom! I grew up in the (German) countryside with plenty of dogs and horses and after moving to London, lost my furry ways for a while. Luckily I came across my beloved puppy a few years back who showed me the way to blissful job satisfaction.

I'm dedicated, professional and love what I do (and judging by my client's feedback, I'm good at it as well!)
