With a growing industry of products, services, and even TV shows, dog training is big business in the United States and Canada.

Stevenson’s work is a welcomed alternative to an industry awash with harmful training methods that don’t put the dogs interests first.

I have a copy of Alana Stevenson’s book. It really helped with the introduction of my two dogs. Thanks Alana!
That’s great to hear! The AV team learned a lot from Alana as well. Thanks for sharing.
