I’m Alexa and I just love dogs! They’re so cute but also intelligent, and I really enjoy teaching them tricks and routines. 🐶💖
I have three Guinness World Records titles AND won Das Supertalent (Germany’s equivalent of Britain's Got Talent) with my eight pooches!
🐶 My records 🐶
Fastest 5 m backwards by a dog (now broken)
Most dogs in a conga line
Fastest time to jump 5 hurdles on hind legs by a dog
Where it all started
I was five when I started training dogs, although I started giving commands to the dogs when I was just one year old. 👶
I just told them to get into a box and they did what I said! 😄
My family have 13 dogs in total! 😲
They’re are with them 24 hours a day.
When I come home from school, I eat something quickly and then go to the dogs. Then I do my homework and go back to them.
There aren’t certain breeds that are better than others. It’s all about the individual dog’s character. Some are lazy, some are quirky; some really want to learn and others don’t.
Performing with my dogs
Like I said earlier, I won Das Supertalent back in 2017 when I was nine. But I’ve also appeared on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions and America’s Got Talent: Champions.
The big challenge of performing with dogs in a studio in front of an audience is making sure that every trick really works and that I can entertain people. Usually I get really nervous, but when I do then the dogs do as well.
1️⃣My number-one tip for budding animal trainers1️⃣
It’s really important when teaching a new trick that you match it to the dog’s personality!
I’m really proud that my dogs have so many records. When we got home, they all got a reward!
My plans for the future
My plan for the future is to invent more tricks and teach them to my dogs.
I really hope I get more shows because I ❤️ love ❤️ to perform and I know that my dogs do as well.
Another thing I’m really clear on – when I’m older, I want to open a dog school. 🏫🐶🤓
