Meet Our Trainer: Alison Tuttle

I have been training dogs for over 30 years, specializing in Rehabilitation and Behavior Modification, through obedience training and socialization. I have trained puppies as young as 10 weeks old to 10 years old in all levels of basic obedience through off leash advanced training.

I have been working alongside Wounded Warriors for the past 3 years; Training Task-Based service dogs for our veterans with disabilities. These dogs give our Veterans the help they need to get back to a life they gave up for our freedom!

I also train Service dogs for autistic children! These dogs not only help retrieve their handlers when they wonder off and help with calming the child during sensory overload situations, C-Paps, Doctor visits, outings, and everyday life.

I rehabilitate dogs that have not been able to be in the same home together whether it is aggression reaction or dominance. I also help the owners understand how to read this behavior to prevent and secure a safe environment.

I have worked in Las Vegas, NV rehabilitating fighting pit bulls. Helping to rescue and letting these dogs know that not all humans are bad. I have placed many of them in loving homes!

I volunteer with the rescue and capturing of the Athens Wolf Project through Villalobos Rescue Center. My family and I have donated supplies and time to the continuing efforts the amazing rescue has accomplished.

"I am truly passionate about working with dogs. I enjoy working with all breeds and special needs dogs. I have worked with deaf dogs and have also helped them find their love for agility. I cannot wait to help you and your fur baby reach for those personal goals. Whether it is a well-mannered dog or the SUPER STAR that we know they can be!" -Alison
