Living with a dog is wonderful.

Living with a canine scholar is even better.

The difference?

A canine scholar knows how to live in human society – to come when called, walk by your side, greet humans and fellow canines politely, and leave the chooks and wildlife to their own business.

At Scholars in Collars, we’re dedicated to bringing out the scholar in all dogs.

Hello. I’m Alexis Davison. My team and I love helping dog owners enjoy the best from their dogs. And to serve as many dogs and dog lovers as possible, it gives me great pleasure to help others join and thrive in our industry as well. I look forward to hearing how we can help you!
