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.
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!
Very happy with the progress I’m seeing in all three of our dogs. Learning so much more about their individual personalities than I had seen before. One of our pups went from not being able to attend doggy daycare to now being a welcome client. Ray is laid back, not judgemental and really listens to what you want to achieve with your dogs. He understands every household and every dog is unique and works accordingly. Thank you!
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
