Rayfield trained two of my dogs during the past decade; Oreo and Roxie. I’ve owned dogs all of my life and have worked with many trainers. Rayfield tops the list hands-down. His technique of working with the dogs’ behavior and making them understand new commands is outstanding. Once the dogs learn the commands, then he trains the owner and the owners’ behavior and attitude. Astonishing results on all counts. Aside from being a sensational dog trainer, Rayfield is a person whom I admire, trust and respect. He’s been an asset to my dogs as well as an asset to me.
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 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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Amazing trainer with such compassion and knowledge, We are truly thankful to have had him help many of our dogs!!!
Amazing trainer with the amazing ability to understand and redirect your dog. He teaches you about your energy and your dogs energy … highly recommended, he is very knowledgeable.
OMG what an awesome amazing training session! Wasn’t really sure what to expect and someone even told me that I would be probably wasting my money cause I have a new rescue who is timid and scared but he spent time talking, explaining and sitting on the floor with us and Romeo and it will be work and time but we saw a positive forward already and it really has made us so happy to learn and know how to make a huge impact in our Romeo’s life ❤ Would recommend him 100%! He knows dogs and he has patience with humans 🤣🤣
