MASLOW’S UNIVERSITY OF TALENTED DOGS
A unique titling program created for all dogs and handlers to succeed
At Maslow’s University of Talented Dogs, we believe in challenging your dog. That’s why this unique titling program was created. It not only pushes your dog to their full ability, but also creates a safe, positive learning environment for both the dog and the handler.
Maslow the Trick Corgi
The inspiration behind this program, Maslow (nicknamed "Maslow the Trick Corgi") is a black-headed tri-color Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He was named after the psychology theory "Maslow's hierarchy of needs." He was given this name because his mom wanted him to be a smart boy.
Maslow has 29 trick dog titles (and counting!) He's an independent little boy who loves learning, making his mom happy, and running around. He also is competitively training for agility and barn hunt and hopes to do other dog sports as well.
Maslow has big dreams and has already accomplished so much in his short two years of life.
The Creator of Maslow's University of Talented Dogs
Alyssa has always had a passion for animals. Even as a little girl, she knew she wanted to do something with animals when she grew up. When she was 14, she started volunteering at her local zoo educating visitors on the animals. Since, then she dedicated every decision of her life to becoming a zookeeper.
She attended college in Hawai'i and volunteered at the zoo with giraffes, zebras and an ostrich. Her time at college was unfortunately cut short and she moved back home. Shortly after, she began working as a part-time zookeeper at the very zoo she started at 14. She primarily works with insects and reptiles, but also works with goats.
She decided to pursue dog training to help get animal training experience for her zookeeper career. This is the time she decided to get a Pembroke Welsh Corgi that she named Maslow. Together, they have become an unstoppable team that has surpassed her wildest dreams and her original expectations.
She created Maslow's University of Talented Dogs to encourage all owners to train their dogs and to have fun with it! She believes that training helps owners bond with their dogs and creates a relationship that is indescribable.
