About ALS

Our Mission

Founded by James F. Lessenberry, an animal behaviorist, Animal Learning Systems is built on a solid academic foundation of biologic and environmental influences on behavior. He has been helping families and their pets for more than 30 years.

Animal Learning Systems’ mission is to help families achieve a human–companion animal bond experience that is rich with purpose and value, by providing practical, humane, and affordable solutions for companion dog training, enhancing the psychological well-being of companion dogs and their living environments, and providing behavior therapy for challenging companion animals of all species.

Our Staff

We believe that superior employees and superior employee performance means such a difference in this industry, that for us, human resources are the foundation of our organization. We strive to go out of our way, every day, to see that our employees’ needs are served. We place a strong emphasis on communications, support, and training for our staff at all levels.

Our services and products are centered on companion animals – primarily dogs – and so our workplaces and staff may appear more relaxed and casual than other workplaces and employees in other professional organizations; but, make no mistake, we are a highly professional business that demands excellence from all aspects of our Company.

We invite you to meet our staff and perhaps become a part of us!
