Alexis joined Beyond the Dog with a Bachelor’s degree in Conservation Biology and years of animal training experience. Alexis has experience working with a wide variety of animals–primarily, but not limited to–dogs, horses, and other small pets. Alexis is an AKC handler and has competed and titled her own dogs in Conformation and Rally Obedience. Prior to working at Beyond the Dog, Alexis served as a senior trainer consulting with clients in group settings as well as private dog training. Alexis has also had the joy of working with guide dogs.
Although Alexis has had numerous amazing experiences working with animals, her true passion is training family pets and their owners. As a head trainer for our Houston office, Alexis brings her experience, knowledge, and passion to each and every one of the animals she touches—as well as their human counterparts! With her enthusiastic, yet efficient and effective style of training Alexis improves the lives of the families she works with each and everyday.
Alexis shares her home with Joe, a Black Mouth Cur, and a cat named Ariel. When Alexis is not helping Houston families with their pets, she enjoys horseback riding, hiking and reading.
