ThinkingPets Instructor - Level 5.
Alexandra has always had a passion for animals -from an early age all her best friends were always 4-legged. She joined ThinkingPets COAPE SA in 2009 as a Level 2 instructor after completing her Confi-Puppy course. She was prompted to start her studies in behaviour and training after identifying a lack of qualified trainers and schools in the Pretoria area where she was training her own dogs. Through the years she has excelled with the group and is now a qualified L4 instructor who offers numerous classes in Pretoria and Midrand, ranging from puppy, adolescent, adult and agility training classes. Alexandra is currently studying part time through UNISA - a Diploma in Animal Health - and is also busy completing her COAPE Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour.
In 2012 she added qualified groomer to her impressive list of services offered, after successfully completing her Advanced Grooming Course. She plans on opening her own grooming parlour soon. “Within ThinkingPets I feel I am able to strengthen the bonds between pets and owners.”
