Kaitlin Parker, is a proud graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University where she earned her degree in Criminal Justice.

Kaitlin’s love for animals was apparent at a young age, but it wasn’t until college when she rescued a dog of her own, Dingo Charlie. “Mrs. Dingo” exhibited some concerning behavioral issues to which she sought help, which ultimately led Kaitlin to AlphA and Omega Dog Training. Having gone through the training process and getting a new understanding about communications between humans and their furry companions, Kaitlin grasped the opportunity to become a part of the Team and grow the AlphA and Omega Brand. We are extremely proud to have her!
Joshua J., began working with animals at a young age. As a child, while the other kids were into playing sports, he would spend his time at the nearby zoo learning all he could about the exotic animals and strange creatures. Snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, fish, cats and dogs (and one chipmunk), have all shared his living space.
While he loves all animals(except spiders) with the same affinity, not surprisingly, his passion is dog training. Today, he enjoys educating dog lovers on how to strengthen the bond between humans and their k-9 companions. Having started his professional dog training career in Cleveland, Ohio, Jay has trained dogs all over the Continental U.S. From as far South as the Gulf of Mexico, North to the Great Lakes, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans. Today, Jay focuses his attention on training Trainers on how to lead a successful team and build the AlphA and Omega Brand.
