Alex Andes is the owner and head trainer of Peach on a Leash Dog Training & Behavior Services, based in Roswell, GA.
Alex has been training dogs and studying dog behavior for nearly a decade. She attended the University of Georgia, where she began honing her training skills while helping improve the behavior of local shelter dogs to reduce euthanasia rates. She graduated with honors in 2012 and worked as both a pet adoption counselor and an assistant dog trainer before being offered a job with Victoria and the Positively team.
Alex is the co-creator of the online series Guardians of the Night, and is one of the camera operators for Arson Dogs. She is a BlogPaws member and is also a regular contributor to the Positively Blog and the Dogington Post.
Alex has traveled the world with Victoria and had had the opportunity to learn from her in all facets of training and behavior for over four years. In early 2017, she decided to pursue her dream of launching Peach on a Leash. Alex and Victoria's work together has allowed Alex the opportunity to work hands-on with both pet dogs and working dogs, including police dogs and accelerant detection dogs. She still works part-time for Victoria while running her training business.
She now teaches private lessons and group classes to people and their pets. Her results-oriented training utilizes positive reinforcement techniques that are backed by the latest modern behavioral science.
Alex lives in Atlanta, GA with her fiancé Will and their beloved dogs.
