Alecia Evans has been successfully transforming the relationship of hundreds of dogs of all ages, breeds and temperaments with their people 2001.  As a Holistically minded dog trainer Alecia works with issues ranging from bringing a new puppy home to severe aggression. Her philosophy is harness your dog’s energy to unleash their greatest potential and your own.  Having she began suspecting that many of the tools used to train dogs and puppy’s were causing undetected harm and damage to the dog’s neck, throat and spine areas. Often times having long term ramifications that few trainers or veterinarians are aware of.

Never feeling right about choking dogs and unsuspecting puppies to train them, Alecia invented The Walk In Sync Humane Dog Walking and Training System as the gold standard of training tools in order to end the choking of dogs during training and walking. Alecia is revolutionizing the dog training world with her exclusive 5 Minute Manners Makeovers using the Walk In Sync Harness and Accu-Grip Leash, along with her Walk In Sync 3 Easy Steps  to teach any human/dog duos to Walk In Sync in just minutes.

Alecia’s background as an Animal Wellness Consultant over the last 15 years has been focused on nutritional health and emotional well being utilizing nature’s pharmacy of supplements and natural remedies to address the animal’s root issue and restore balance to their system and behavior.

As the former host of the award winning GrassRoots Aspen TV Series, The Whole Animal- An Alternative Approach to Animal Care, Alecia takes a natural approach to dog training and health care. Her work has been featured on: Fox and Friends, The Sandra Glosser Show, NY 1, and in Aspen Magazine,, The New York Daily News and Woof Report.  She is the training expert for and Only Natural Pet Store.

Alecia believes prevention and proper education about the best training methods and tools will begin to limit the number of dogs given up for adoption due to behavior issues.

By listening to the interview you will learn:

  • How training dogs with flat, pinch or prong collars around their neck or nose can cause serious problems.
  • Why using old technology dog collars often make dog training dangerous.
  • What made Alecia invent the Walk In Sync  System.
  • What the scientific basis for this system is and why it is more effective for dogs and pups and their people.
  • How traditional training methods cause dogs to become aggressive and fearful.

We need to upgrade the tools we use to train our dogs and puppies.

Although we have been taught for the last 60 years that training your dog by any apparatus around their neck or nose is ok, perhaps we need to rethink how these tools have been failing them.  Training humanely is the highest tribute we can pay to our dogs and will not only make training more effective but will keep many dogs out of shelters who have been labeled behaviorally challenged.
