Alexis is a certified dog and cat trainer through the Animal Behavior College (ABCDT/CT), with a certificate in Applied Animal Behavior from the University of Washington (UW-AAB). She is a Fear Free certified professional in animal training, which is a commitment to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in animals. 

More information about Alexis' education can be found on the Certificates and Education page.

Her career began over ten years ago, working in animal shelters, providing enrichment, behavior modification and training for shelter animals. She developed a deep understanding of the correlation between an animals physical and mental well-being. She has extensive experience in behavioral assessments, and can better understand why your companion animal does the things they do using a scientific approach.  She has provided private training sessions for dogs and cats with a multitude of backgrounds and behavioral issues from fear, separation anxiety, phobias, destructive behavior, litter box issues, etc. 

She founded Companion Animal Wellness to reach out and have a positive impact on the quality of life for more companion animals, improving the mental health and overall well-being of animals. 

At Companion Animal Wellness we want to help establish a positive and long lasting human-animal bond. This relationship between human and animals is essential to the health and well-being of both.
