ABOUT ALEXANDRA NELKE
My aim is to help you and your dog to create a strong and happy relationship, tailored to your lifestyle and your dog’s needs.
Based in London, I offer bespoke force free and positive dog training that considers your dog’s breed specific characteristics, his/ her history (for adult and rescue dog training) and your day-to-day routine to create a happy environment for your canine friend and to ensure you are a calm and confident dog owner.
From puppy training to establishing behaviour modification programmes for adult dogs, all of my work is founded on modern, science based positive reinforcement methods.
I have been hand-selected by renowned canine behavioural specialist Sarah Whitehead to become a licensed trainer under her Clever Dog Company Method and continue to study under her guidance. I've also accomplished Dr. Hare’s 'Dog Emotion and Cognition' Course at Duke University and carried out various courses with The Institute Of Modern Dog Trainers. I have studied, and continue to study the works of a number of distinguished dog trainers and behavioural psychologists including Bob Bailey, Ian Dunbar, Grisha Stewart, James O’Heare, Karen Pryor and Patricia B. McConnell.
P.S.: the inspiration behind our business name is little Miss Wolfgang, my strong willed Jack Russell and Pomeranian mix who knows a thing or two about dog training, naturally. Wolfgang teaches me about the way of the dog every day and I feel honoured to have such a wonderful business partner and best friend in my life.
