Alejandra Vázquez Bracho Illescas

Your Mérida Dog Trainer

Growing up, Alejandra spent a lot of time around dogs. As a child, she went to several dog events and enjoyed them – this sparked a passion in Alejandra that provided the basis for her decision to move into a career in dog training as she grew up.

As she moved into her teenage years, Alejandra wanted to get her own dog. She sold candy at school for an entire year to enable her to save enough money to eventually get her first dog, Miga, when she was 15 years old.

Alejandra decided that she had to learn more about dog training. Miga was completely her responsibility, and her mother didn’t like dogs (even making Alejandra sign a contract to ensure Miga would be well-behaved and able to stay in the house). During this time, Alejandra learned a lot about Miga, and about dog behavior in general. Miga is now a happy, well-behaved 10-year-old pet dog.

In pursuing her passion for dogs, Alejandra has undertaken several voluntary positions to further her knowledge and experience. She volunteered at Central Alberta Humane Society as a dog walker, and worked as a pet sitter and dog walker while in university. She also volunteered as Ester y Liza, a nonprofit organization offering low cost sterilization services. 

After completing her degree in Natural Resources Management, Alejandra started to look for education opportunities in the dog training field. Her research led her to the School for Dog Trainers, where she completed the 24-week Master Dog Trainer program. Upon graduation, Alejandra completed a six month internship at Highland Canine Training, where she gained practical, hands-on knowledge of all areas of the business.

Returning to Mexico, Alejandra is excited to work with dog owners in Mérida to help to strengthen the human-canine relationship.
