About Alex Linares:

2014-07-31 19.13.16 - Copy - CopyWelcome to Happy Paws Pet Blog! I have been working in the four-legged industry for over 10 years and am very excited to be able to work with and educate pet parents! HPPB includes pet safety, pet health, Fear Free tips, positive training, cool pet tech, and product reviews.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Biology & Animal Sciences in 2009, then completed the program at Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology and became a Certified Veterinary Technician in 2011. After working at a general practice  in Lexington, KY for several years, I ran (fled?) back to the Rockies and became a Certified Professional Pet Sitter through PSI. I worked for several years in an Emergency and Specialty Hospital before creating A&R Critter Care, LLC, a professional pet care service dedicated to top quality care, especially for special needs pets.

I became a Fear Free Certified Professional in April of 2016 and have since made it my primary focus in both pet care and writing. In 2017, I transitioned away from ARCC to help write and implement Fear Free protocols in a local veterinary hospital. I then created Happy Paws Pet Blog (and a second theatre/travel/fashion blog called Stardust And Wine) to continue pursuing my writing passion and better connect with local, national, and international pet parents!
