**December 2020 Update**
For those of you who have been searching around for a dog trainer and who may have come across my page by happenstance, you might see that my social media activity has been very much lacking this year and that definitely is in part to everything that has been going on in the world lately. I decided to step back from social media and take on a very limited amount of clients to start focusing inwardly on family. With that said this year has also taken me from Tracy, CA up to the Clackamas, OR area to be closer to my extended family. My books are currently open for all those who reside around Clackamas including Gladstone, Milwaukie, Happy Valley, Lake Oswego, Oregon City and all the little towns in between. Thank you in advance for considering supporting me by choosing my small business to help you reach your dog training goals - you're helping me get my footing on this new journey of mine!
Having been a dog lover my whole life I decided that working with dogs was the career path that I wanted to take but how? In 2012 an opportunity to study dog training at Animal Behavior College arose where I worked hands on along side an amazing mentor and volunteered with various shelters in the state of Washington. In 2014 my family moved to Tracy CA where I set up my business "Dog Training with Alysia" and stayed pretty lowkey until 2016 when I was offered a job dog training at PetSmart where I then spent the next two and a half years getting to know and help a lot of wonderful people in the Tracy, CA community. In 2019 I decided that it was time to fly the coop and go solo reopen my business as Leasha Dog Training.
Leasha Dog Training is a fully certified business, and I have taken the time to go beyond my studies at ABC and research many different techniques and tools for training your dog effectively. I believe that each approach to dog training should be individualized to you and your dogs needs to help give you the greatest outcome.
Leasha Dog Training believes that owning a pet is an amazing and rewarding experience, but is also a big responsibility. Training your pet properly will lead you to a greater understanding of your pet, and I firmly believe in the foundation of a great owner-pet relationship being one built on a mutual understanding and respect. My goal is to give the pet parent a full understanding of the training process, and with this comprehensive and effective approach, I find that owners end up learning as much, if not more, than their pets.
