Peach on a Leash owner and head trainer, Alex Andes, has been training dogs and studying dog behavior for nearly a decade. She attended the University of Georgia where she began honing her training skills, while helping improve the behavior of local shelter dogs to reduce euthanasia rates. She graduated with honors in 2012 and worked as both a pet adoption counselor and an assistant dog trainer before being offered a job with celebrity dog trainer Victoria Stilwell of Animal Planet’s “It’s Me or the Dog.”
Alex traveled the world with Victoria and had the opportunity to learn from her in all facets of training and behavior for over four years before deciding to pursue her dream of launching Peach on a Leash. Their work together allowed Alex the opportunity to work hands-on with both pet dogs and working dogs, including police dogs and accelerant detection dogs. Alex was recently accepted into the prestigious Jean Donaldson Academy for Dog Trainers, commonly referred to as “the Harvard for dog trainers,” to further refine her training skills. These experiences have helped her to become one of the most studied, well-rounded trainers in the area, and her results-oriented training utilizes positive reinforcement techniques that are backed by the latest modern behavioral science.
