ALY'S STORY

ALY’S STORY

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…

  • I opened up 8 frozen yogurt stores with my sister before retiring from that industry in 1999.
  • I sold Mary Kay Cosmetics while in college and won the use of a Team Leader car!
  • I started training kids on how to ride horses in my mid-30s and then resumed my non-pro showing career in my mid-40’s!
  • I was a multi-time qualifier to the NRCHA World Championship show when I started showing my Paint Horse, Repeat Plan.

If I have a passion and love for something, I go for it!

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.

I’ve been blessed to own and train the BEST doodles in the World!

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!

Open your mind, jump on board and join me on my journey to awesomeville.
