Bringing Humans & Canines Together
Align K9 is your resource for achieving a better understanding of your canine companion. We provide in-home dog training services in Southwest Florida, as well as education and inspiration for the dog owner.
As Canine Behavior Consultants, we have advanced knowledge of canine cognition that goes beyond the typical dog “training” services other companies offer.
We believe that when a relationship between dog and owner is founded on communication, patience and compassion, a stronger bond is formed.
As an effective leader, you should provide structure, promote understanding, and teach through opportunities.
Always set your dog up to win, so that they may never lose. It is this foundation of trust, confidence, and respect that allows your dog to look at you with deserved admiration.
Does your dog ever…
- Jump up on guests?
- Ignore your commands?
- Only respond to treats?
- Dart out of open doors?
- Pull while on leash?
- Bark excessively?
- Not come when called?
- Growl, snap or bite?
- Nip at you for attention?
- Embarrass you in public?
Then you have found the right place! Contact us today at (239) 287-7113 for a no cost behavior consultation. There is nothing to lose except those bad habits!
Don’t blame them … TRAIN THEM … and yourself, too, at Align K9.
What Our Customers Say…
Rayfield is worth his weight in gold. Not only does he respond immediately to any plea for help, but he will also travel long-distances to do in-home visits to work with the dogs that are perilously close to losing their homes usually due to human error.Sitting in on a recent three hour session with him in Tampa made me a firm believer that he knows what he is doing and, most importantly, the dogs respond to and respect him. Rayfield also follows up and maintains close ties with those that he has worked with to ensure continued success.Florida Boxer Rescue is fortunate to have the benefit of his experience and we are looking forward to many, many years of working together to ensure our Boxers are given the best chance possible for successful, happy lives.
Alpha Dog Academy offered no cost training for the dogs in our rescue. I loved that each dog's individual traits were identified first and then the group was taught to work together as team. It is so much fun to get training and socialization all in one. The dogs have a great time and their minds get quite the work out. To describe the trainer Rayfield in one word - PATIENT. Wow, I wish I had even half of his patience. Professional and fun!
Rayfield Baisley is a knowledgeable and caring dog behavior consultant. He generously volunteered his time and talents to help establish Canine Assisted Therapy, and is the content creator of the B.A.R.K. program we utilize today within our pack readers program. It was with his insightful evaluations of many of our therapy dog programs that we were always able to help ensure we had teams serving in a facility that is befitting of the dogs temperament and personality. He coached our therapy dog handlers on reading canine body language and ways to ensure the therapy experiences were always beneficial for the patients they are visiting, and for the dogs and handlers as well. Canine Assisted Therapy is fortunate to have worked so long with Rayfield and thanks him for being a fellow rescue advocate.
Everything! Rayfield is truly a Dog Whisperer. I needed some help with my new puppy who was out of control. He needed a lot of work. I was worried that no one would be able to correct his bad behavior. As soon as I met Rayfield I knew he was going to be able to help me. He is extremely smart and knowledgeable. Not only did turn my puppy into an Angel he also taught me a lot of things. I was responsible for a lot of the bad behavior my puppy was doing. He has a saying that I love and say all the time. "Train Them, Don't Blame Them" I highly recommend him.
Rayfield's positive techniques and advice have been sanity saving for our family. Most importantly, they work. He has trained us as much as the dog. After being kicked out of puppy class, I didn't have much hope for our rescue dog Jackson. Rayfield was recommended to us and in one lesson had him walking with another dog. When our family situation changed and the dog was not adjusting well, he came right over to help us. He is very accessible via phone, text, etc and answers any questions you have. His positive attitude and interactions with dogs has made working with him a wonderful experience.
