I have known Alex and Marcy for over 20 years and have used Alex Brooks Canine Center in the past to train and board my dogs, so when I got my new puppy, Alex’s facility was the only place I thought to take him. I have always had 100% confidence in Alex’s training ability and have seen his methods change and evolve as the years have gone by. Having always owned a stubborn breed of dog, Alex has gone above and beyond to get me the results I had been looking for. I have never had a bad experience with … Click for More Info.

Alex Brooks shines at Mount Prospect Public Library

Alex Brooks would be the first to tell you that if he wasn’t working with dogs, he’d be working with kids.  But it’s a good thing he’s working with dogs, because his methods are flawless and easy to learn, helping a great amount of people, including the large audience he had Tuesday night at the Mount Prospect Library.

It is a good sign when your dog prances into daycare never looking back. I am confident in the care and attention that the staff at Alex Brooks Canine Center gives to my dog. They report to me each day I pick him up how he did with the other dogs. It is nice to know that our dog is getting proper socialization and activity while in their care. They honestly do what is best for each dog. Their dog handlers are experts in their field and from what I can tell in my many visits, love working at Alex … Click for More Info.

Joan Parojcic

Hello! Just a quick update on my Belgian Malinois Grace that you helped us train to safely get in and out of my daughter’s car. Since your home visit and our training days, Grace has been to the vet and to the groomer’s, as well as on short car rides to parks and the McDonald’s drive thru. Thank you again for all your help!

Paula

First of all, let me just say you did an incredible job tonight at the library. I came home with several pages of notes, and worked my dogs as soon as I came in the door – walking right past them until they settled down, then calmly greeting them. They were surprised that I didn’t come in and ruff up their fur with a giant greeting, but I really think they liked this new, calmer greeting better. Secondly can I compliment you (because I didn’t get a chance yet) to say how incredible your Doggiepalooza was!? It was my first … Click for More Info.

Leon S. Benson, M. D.

I got a dog for our family three years ago, having no dog experience whatsoever. The best thing I did was to get our new puppy, Chelsea, enrolled in Alex’s Board and Train program. I then participated in weekly obedience lessons and now our pup is admired by everyone who meets her. Alex Brooks and his staff are the “real deal”. You can watch shows on TV or read a bunch of “how to” books, but when you decide you want to understand canine behavior and make your dog a positive partner in your life, contact Alex. His entire focus … Click for More Info.

Deborah

I’ve used Alex Brooks for both training and boarding and they have exceeded my expectations. I brought my problem dog Max to them as he was about to be euthanized for nipping my granddaughter. They taught him; they taught me. Max is like a different dog. The trainer, spent time with him in an evaluation and within minutes I could see improvement. I’m a wolfhound (very laid back, gentle breed) owner and Max is a wolfhound/terrier mix (and a terror) and I don’t think either one of us understood the other. The staff were able to make both of come … Click for More Info.

Island Dog Rescues

Katie E. Block Island Dog Inc. Director/Founder

Alex and Marcy not only opened their facility to our Island Dog rescues, but they also opened their hearts. They voluntarily help give our Island Dogs a new leash on life. They have helped several of our dogs gain confidence and have taught obedience. They have also helped strengthened our foundation by enabling us to work with dogs that may have never found forever homes because of behavioral issues. Alex takes each dog as a special challenge, working individually with our dogs to determine their strengths and weaknesses. He has a gift and a way that allows the dogs to … Click for More Info.

Seymour is Perfect

Seymour, Cathy and Jay Shino

I am sure everyone writes in to say this, but even after just one visit to our home from Alex, Seymour is amazing. We plan on working with Alex some more, but already we see ahuge difference with our 4 mth old Welsh Terrier and have been happy to give Alex the credit when people stop us to comment on how nice and behaved our puppy is (and we get stopped alot!) Thanks a million. Seymour, Cathy and Jay Shino
