Thank you, Rayfield and Alpha Dog Academy, for the informative behavior phone consultation today. I can’t believe how my dogs responded to your simple, yet effective suggestions. I look forward to learning more, now that I have booked an in-home training session. I can’t wait for you to meet my dogs!

Ray is the best dog trainer I’ve ever met and I’ve met a few being that I always had lots of dogs. His of handling the dogs and the owners is very professional and shows his long term experience even with very difficult cases. He educates you and won’t create a dependency relationship which I have seen with other trainers. He’s your best bet in swfl… hands down!

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 works very diligently with dogs, and uses his keen doggy sense to actually fix the underlining issues, not just mask them. Excellent advice is given by the bundle. He is a true dog lover and does his best to improve the dog-dog relationship and human-dog relationship. He works around your schedule, always answers questions and provides great insight into what works best. He is a breath of fresh air. I highly recommend Rayfield.

Rayfield is a very special dog trainer- most intuitive and knowledgeable in an area taken for granted these days. He has been instrumental in helping us find dogs homes, and most of all, KEEPING dogs in their homes. We are very grateful to his support of us, and the many dogs whose futures would be very different without his intervention. I am proud to recommend and endorse Alpha Dog Academy.

Ray was our third trainer to help us raise a rambunctious, rescue lab-mix into a well-mannered pet. Our dog is now in her “testing teen” years, but I can see that practice and perseverance will provide a big pay-off. Ray explains the dog’s behavior and how the owner can get the desired results. A visit to our Vet this a.m. garnered unsolicited compliments on her training. So this isn’t a biased opinion. Hire the best first (Ray) and forget the rest.

Training with Align K9 was a really wonderful experience for both us and our dog. My dog is struggling with some anxiety and aggression and we were able to work on effective methods of working well together. Thank you!

I recommend Alpha Dog Academy almost daily to people who need assistance with their pets. Rayfield is a life saver … literally! When the public comes to me, they’re often at their wits end and ready to relinquish their dog to a shelter. After I calm them down and tell them that Rayfield is on his way, the real magic happens. He’s been able to put peace back into homes and keep families together. That is critical in our line of work. Rayfield jumps at the chance to help any animal, even if he’s not going to be compensated. He’s constantly helping animals in need. You can call him day or night and he’s there to help! His primary concern is to have a happy pet in a happy home. I’m thrilled Rayfield is out there in the trenches helping animals in our community and beyond. We (and they) need him!
