Who's Walking Who w/ Stacy Alldredge
About The Episode
Stacy grew up overseas, living in places like Brazil, Scotland, Africa, and Portugal. Her relationships with dogs was short-lived at a time growing up, but she was always trying to rescue dogs and thought they were always great companions.
Stacy would volunteer at shelters and help out but it really was Tyler, her first dog as an adult, who was the reason why Stacy went into working with dogs. She also rescued Tyler’s sister, Cleo, who was going to be put down. Because of those two, and trying to raise them to be the best dogs possible, she learned a lot about that process.
Stacy’s had over 15 dogs in her life already, especially as she tends to rescue older dogs and give them a home before they go. She found Geo (pictured here), who turned out to be the most significant dog in her life and taught her the most lessons. Geo made her re-consider how she approached dogs through his wide-ranging sides of behavior. Right now she has a dog named Pita, rescued from the ACC. When Stacy adopted her, she had various issues, and now the only real issue is that Pita doesn’t like Stacy’s cats.
From initially helping others with their dog training (which was how she met this podcast’s host, John Bartlett), Stacy then for a while ran a dog daycare in Chelsea in Manhattan. Now she runs Who’s Walking Who, which helps people with dog training and behavior. It is based in New York City. Some of Stacy’s clients include Neville, the dog of fashion designer Marc Jacbos.
