My wife and I took our beagle mix Bella to Wolf Moon Dogs ahead of leaving for our anniversary trip on a recommendation from a friend, knowing our beloved pup would be in capable hands while we were away. Alana regularly provided us with updates on Bella’s progress: pictures to help us connect with her while we were away and videos of her showing us how much she’d learned! We expected to return to a well-behaved dog but didn’t realize how much of a confidence boost the two weeks with Alana would be for her. When we picked Bella up to take her home Alana was thorough in explaining the commands and how to use them effectively with our dog. Since returning home, Bella has shown us how responsive she can be to our commands---something she definitely was not prior to spending time with Alana. Our walks around the neighborhood and along heavily trafficked areas are no longer sources of stress and anxiety for Bella. She’s so happy! Thanks, Wolf Moon Dogs!
Before boarding our dog Lucy with Alana, we interviewed several local trainers and boarding facilities. Alana was so positive and patient with all of our questions and concerns associated with leaving our 6 month old rescue pup with her for training while we went on vacation. She learned so much in that time with her and we have had a lot of fun teaching her all of her good girl ways. Alana was awesome at communicating with us while we were away giving us updates on how Lucy was doing and sending us pictures of her “at school”. We have since built on Lucy’s skills and worked with Alana on e-collar training. Lucy goes to work with my husband and is super confident and well-behaved. We joke that she is Alana’s business card because so many people have stopped to ask about her good behavior. Lucy LOVES Alana and is quick to bust out her best behavior when she sees her at our door. We also love Alana and are so glad that she has worked her magic with our girl. We are grateful for her upbeat personality, flexibility and her willingness to compromise or talk us off of the ledge when we have been nervous to implement new rules (can’t let those human emotions take over!). Training can be hard work but it doesn’t feel like it because we know we always have Alana in our corner.
We took our 8 month old golden retriever, Lacy, to Alana for a two week board and train and couldn't be happier with the results! Since Alana's training (on Lacy, and us as owners) were able to thoroughly enjoy our pup more than we did before training. Everyone raves about Lacy's training and her amazing listening skills. I would recommend Alana over and over. She's simply the best trainer around!
My pup Millie had high separation anxiety and lacked a lot of confidence. She absolutely hated her crate and her behavior was becoming destructive and even dangerous. Millie was also very distracted and stressed out on walks, pulling all over the place. Alana exudes confidence and truly understands all of the ins and outs about dogs. I felt like she was able to pin point exactly what Millie's issues were and how to fix them just by a few minutes of interacting with her. Alana was very informative and gave me several options on how she could help Millie. I felt extremely comfortable and confident leaving Millie with her and her dogs and knew she was in safe and caring hands while she was training. I could see the transformation progress throughout the week and watch Millie build more and more confidence. When I got Millie back it was still a lot of work and reinforcement of the new rules but Alana gave us the foundation and tools we needed to make the world a less scary place for Millie. Alana is now our personal dog whisperer and has helped Millie and I tremendously. I would recommend her again and again. If you’re hesitant just talk to her and she will sell you in minutes with her calm and knowledgeable presence.
