dog training + boarding






keeping families together

one treat at a time



is always the answer

We aim to help pet owners understand their dog and form a closer bond using reward-based positive reinforcement.  You will learn the tools you need to attain dual trust and respect and achieve a well-balanced peaceful environment.  Our overall goal is to slow shelter surrenders by providing a second chance at rehabilitation.

"I was Amanda's first customer and will remain her customer as long as she will have me! I have never met a better dog caregiver or trainer. She can do wonders with dogs and their owners, gently teaching and guiding them toward their behavioral goals. She is passionate and patient with an innate understanding and knowledge of how and why dogs behave the way they do. I'm lucky to know her since I love to rescue dogs with "issues". She can handle it all."

"I found Amanda several years ago when my usual dog boarding place was booked. I've never used anyone else since! Whatever your dog is (big, little, crazy, calm, etc) she will take great care of. She treats them like family and loves them all. Your dogs will come home tired and happy!"

"Amanda at Alpha Love Dog is amazing to work with! Training is not one size fits all, and she works on identifying strategies specific to you and your pet's needs. I highly recommend her. I also love boarding with her, because she is very in tune to dog behavior. My dog always returns calm, tired, and better behaved!"
