Alpha Paws specializes in Basic Obedience Training and solving Behavioural Issues for dogs of all ages. Our training places significant emphasis on proper demeanor, proper conduct, and respect, plus the traditional obedience commands that exemplify a well-behaved dog.
Alpha Paws was established by Peter Brown in January 2001.
Peter has been training dogs to ‘mind their manners’ for more than 20 years. He has developed an exceptional understanding of canines, both dogs and wolves, through years of study as well as many years of hands-on work experience.
Peter is passionate about improving the quality of life for his clients, both dogs and their owners, and he takes particular joy in teaching people how to communicate with their pets – essentially, how to read and speak the language of “Dog”. With extensive training and experience in animal care ranging from nutrition to obedience, Peter is an extremely competent and qualified teacher to team with you – and your dog – to address obedience and behavioural issues or concerns.
In his free time, Peter enjoys fishing, camping, cooking, and playing with his dogs.
