Certified Professional Dog Trainer
Alison grew up on the north shore of Chicago. She has always had a love for animals which she attributes to her late father who believed that all creatures have a place in this world.
While attending the University of Iowa, Alison worked at a boarding, daycare, and dog training facility. She often shadowed the kennel trainer for group classes and puppy training. After graduating with a Bachelors in Psychology, she returned home to Chicago and started her own pet sitting business, Sit and Stay. After about a year she decided to turn her efforts towards dog training. From January to June 2011 she attended the Tom Rose School for Professional Dog Trainers. There she learned an array of training techniques making her skilled in basic and advanced obedience, narcotics detection, puppy imprinting, tracking, AKC Agility, and rehabilitation of fearful and aggressive dogs.
After graduating a world renowned dog training school, Alison moved to Raleigh, NC and became one of the founders of Topline K9 Obedience. She spent three years there gaining a wealth of knowledge from the hundreds of dogs that she trained. She then returned to the Chicago area for a few years to be closer to family.
In 2016, Alison and the Unbounded K9 Pack moved to Arizona before starting an adventure that has taken them to 6 states and 4 National Parks.
