About Meraki K9

Alexa White

Owner/Head Trainer

Meraki is a Greek word meaning to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work. Training dogs requires a great deal of creativity, love, and patience, which is why I feel like the word meraki is perfectly suited for the name of my company.


I have been seriously involved with dogs since 2008. I have completed the Top Tier K9 Pet Training Program and Working Dog Program. I also earned my Pet Training Certificate and Working Dog Certificate under the guidance of some of the best dog trainers in the country. My other experiences with dogs include working as an AKC Registered Apprentice professionally showing dogs in conformation, working at multiple boarding facilities and grooming salons, and competing with my dogs in conformation shows and obedience trials.

Rest In Peace "Cali"


Cali was such an amazing dog and a fantastic ambassador of the Great Pyrenees breed. She was such an incredible soul and is missed greatly by all those who loved her.

Thor is happily enjoying retirement from being a demo. He is now my grandma's constant shadow, making sure he keeps her company all day long.
