Grooming

Welcome to AlphaDog Spa!

Meet our Grooming team:

Alejandra Hernandez, AlphaDog Bather

Alejandra started her dog journey two years ago at Postmore Kennels being mentored by Henry the Head Groomer.  Having a background in business her lifelong love of  animals, especially dogs has led her to change her life goals and seek a career in animal care. She saw how stressful some grooming and bathing environments can be for many pets. Her magical ability to defuse tension in animals involves application  of a well-researched mixture of touch, speech and other non verbal reassurance methods.

At AlphaDog you will see Alejandra not only bathing animals and assisting Henry but also spending time on the yard and assisting  at the Front Desk. With her strong business skills and experience helping run Postmore Kennels she will be helping us learn new processes and maintain  “Best in Class” operations.
