I’m Alyson Rodges, and I like to call myself the average person’s Dr. Doolittle.
My friends and family on the other hand, like to call me the energizer bunny because I have lived life on full throttle since I was a kid.
I am a wife, mother, sister, friend, blogger, writer, national competitor in the National Reined Cow Horse Association, and Doodle Whisperer!
I have enough energy to light up Las Vegas which, when you are a puppy trainer, is a necessary commodity.
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 18 and have worked with family and friends through it all!
My faith, my family and my friends have always sustained me through my ventures.
And I have had many successful ones…
It was after retiring from the frozen yogurt industry that I decided I was ready for my very own puppy!
That is when my first Labradoodle, Izzie, came into my life, and a new passion–Loving Doodles–was born. (Our Doodle family has grown through the years!)
I became the go-to person for all of my family and friends who needed someone to ‘baby-sit’ their dogs.
I would listen as they informed me of some of the issues that they were having with their pups as they were handing them over to me. Simply “pup-sitting” wasn’t enough for me, especially when I knew there were issues that needed to be addressed.
I began helping each pup understand what it was they should be doing, while addressing the issues mentioned and they jokingly began saying, “You have given our dogs some life management skills.”
What began as a hobby of helping friends and family with their dogs quickly turned into a full-time business for me.
Fast forward to 2012 when Aly’s Puppy Boot Camp® premiered.
Like every passion of mine, I hit the ground running, and haven’t looked back.
Don’t worry, doodles aren’t our ownly specialty. At Aly’s Puppy Boot Camp, we train every age and breed of dog.
My training philosophy is simply that we train our dogs while we are living our everyday life.
Pooches become part of our extended family and live a life exposed to kids, family of all ages, animals, distractions, schedules, friends, errands, noises, smells, and so many other things.
That is why, at Aly’s Puppy Boot Camp, our pooches are exposed to a multitude of experiences that teach them how to cope with reality in a calm state of mind.
We literally ‘party proof’ our pooches!
