My name is Alissa and I am the owner of Paw Prints Ranch. I have worked in the pet industry for over 15 years.  I have a Veterinarian Assistant Diploma and a Dog Behavior/Obedience Diploma. I have extensive experience in training, boarding and grooming. I have experience with a lot of different breeds and species of animals.

My business is based on love and compassion for all creatures.  I have been a pet owner for most of my life.  When I was 10 I raised Budgies (parakeets).  As I got older my passion for horses increased, and at the age of 16 I purchased my first horse.  I then started training horses for people and re-homing them.  I also worked full time as a vet assistant and started my own business as a pet sitter.  In 2006 I was married and moved to Sauk City, getting out of the pet industry but still focusing on the horse industry by re-homing horses while being a stay at home mom.  After a few years went by I yearned to get back into the pet industry.  I took on a full time position at a boarding facility which I absolutely loved.  In January of 2012 I decided to follow my dream of having my own pet sitting/boarding facility.  I started Paw Prints Ranch shortly after that, We had some road bumps and had to stop for a few years but we are on the upward to help people and animals!

I have a  5.5 year old Great Dane named Merle.  Merle has attended puppy classes at the Shamrock Pet Resort and with Sebatian Zang whom is an amazing trainer!  Merle enjoys visiting the nursing homes and accompanying me to our events. Merle is a Canine Good Citizen.

We are applying for our state license soon as well as becoming a non profit.

We will not be getting loads of puppies in from out of state as we feel there are many local folks that need our help. We will be starting a program for low income families to get their animals spayed and neutered, we will also be working with other programs in the area for pet food donations for families in need!
