Alyssa has had dogs in her family throughout her whole life. Being an only child, she leaned on her dogs as her best friends, doing practically everything together. In 8th grade she got a golden retriever of her own her name is Tally, who Alyssa says is the most loyal companion you could ever ask for. Her family has a 9 year old Kuvasz named Razz (or Bubba), with an amazing personality.

Alyssa is a student athlete at Merrimack College and plays for the varsity softball team. She’s studying psychology and criminology and hopes to become a therapist some day. In the mean time, she’s found that while being away at school she missed being around dogs. Fortunately she joined the BlueDog team where she’s now able to improve a dog’s day with a simple walk, and brighten hers as well!
