Watching Ray work with dogs is amazing. He “gets” them. I’ve worked with other dog trainers in the past and even though many have been good I have never experienced the connection Ray has with dogs. I definitely recommend him for anyone seeking a dog trainer in the Cape Coral area.

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.

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!

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 is a trainer unlike any other. He genuinely CARES about you and your dog with obvious passion and understanding. His training methods are enriching, bringing you understanding of your dog to a whole new level. His generosity with time, knowledge and good spirit showed me he’s got the heart of a canine!

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 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.

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 🤣🤣

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.
