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!

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.

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 with AlignK9 has helped tremendously with our rescue pup who suffers from PTSD (burn injury). Ray not only guided our dog, but also taught us ways to improve human behaviors that we didn’t realize could be attributing to our dog’s reaction. We’ve been working with Ray for 8 visits now and have seen a vast improvement in our dog’s confidence and behavior. We recommend AlignK9!!

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!

Rayfield is incredibly personable and understanding. He listened to our concerns and really worked with us to reinforce what our dogs were learning during training. We saw a noticeable difference in our dogs’ behavior after just one session. Strongly recommend! Rayfield’s knowledge, skills & positive training style is so very effective & he creates a wonderful learning environment. Loved the sessions! I have a new understanding about my dogs and myself.

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!

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.

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.
