Miguel Montealegre was originally born in Cali, Colombia. He moved to the United States in 2007 with his mother looking for a better way of life. Growing up Miguel always loved animals. As a child animals were a huge part of Miguel’s life having had a house full of pets, from fish to cats, to parrots and dogs. He was such a fanatic he never missed a single show on Animal Planet.
Miguel always knew that his calling would be animal related but it was when he got his best friend “Luna” as a present on his 15th birthday that he figured out dogs were his favorite. Luna now a 7yr old Chi Hua Hua/Beagle/Rat Terrier mix has been there for Miguel through thick and thin.
For the past several years Miguel has been in dog related industries from grooming, being a dog keeper, dog training, and worked as a veterinary assistant, all to learn as much about dogs as possible. This journey ultimately lead Miguel to meet with Sam Ivy and become a Trainer with Sam Ivy K9 Consultants.
He truly loves to be a part of Sam Ivy team because of the integrity of the organization and the fact that with their help he can now make an even bigger difference in the lives of people having real struggles with their dog’s behaviors. Miguel is currently a Trainer with Sam Ivy K9 Consultants and is on track to being promoted to Team Trainer mid 2017.
