We got a dog this summer and thought we could train him on our own. When we realized how deluded we were, we called Bob. From the moment he stepped in the door he was in control of our little... Schnoodle. He calmly and clearly took us step by step through the process of encouraging the behaviors we sought and discouraging those we did not...the dog learned faster than we did--he had to train us too! :) I cannot recommend anyone more highly; working with Bob was delightful and effective and we have the sweet puppy to prove it.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
After using Bob Moorefield at Alpha Dog to train our two previous German shepherds, we knew we were going to need him for our new GS puppy Max. Bob has so much experience and patience, he makes... what he does look easy. Within days of starting training, our puppy was like a different dog! I would (and have) highly recommend using Bob Moorefield to train your dog. You will not regret it!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

Bob did a great job working with our little Beagle. She has become a pleasure, good manners and is regularly complimented for her behavior. Bob really shows his dedication and love for his job and it really shows. My liitle one really enjoyed her daily visits from Bob and we all benefitted from the experience.
Bob Morfield did an excellent job of training our rescue dog Sugar. It was impressive to see the daily progress that she made under Bobís direction. We found Bob very conscientious, dedicated and easy to work with. Having him come to our home was a real time saver and very convenient. At the end of the process, Sugar was a different dog - in a very good way. Bob really understands animals and what they need, training wise, to become successful. Interestingly, he was quite effective in training us! We are better, more confident dog owners, and we really enjoyed the process. I would recommend the Alpha Academy to anyone.
Bob Moorfield is the owner of Alpha Academy and I worked with him 18 years ago and so when I got Max, my beautiful 2-year old Australian Shepherd, I knew I had to call Bob. Bob came to my house 5 days per week for 3 weeks and taught Max basic obedience. Max loved him and responded beautifully. Bob knows so much about dogs. It is very inspiring to work with a top-drawer professional who values so highly the care and treatment of dogs. Bob has so much insight about dog behavior and gave me so many useful tips about basic obedience, but also bathing, transporting in the car, keeping the dog from jumping on the bed (!?), how to handle during mealtime--you name your topic of interest and this guy has an answer that works. In addition to the training, Bob provided a follow-up visit at no charge and provided technical assistance over the phone. I give Alpha Academy the highest recommendation possible.
When we brought two five-month old German Shepherd puppies from the same litter to our home, it was like inviting two tornadoes in constant spinning motion. In three weeks, Bob was an amazing guide, helping us tame the storms by completing basic obedience commands but also by explaining how to build a relationship with each of the puppies. Being from the same litter and so close to one another, it was important for us to set boundaries and learn how to integrate the puppies into our family (rather than joining their pack). With such deep expertise and experience, Bob was able to identify the training techniques and approaches that worked for us...in the end, training us on how we can bring out the best in our dogs. Bob helped explain their behavior, tendencies, and character and was an incredible guide in helping us learn how to communicate with the puppies effectively. Highly, highly recommended....Bob is truly amazing and we would have been lost without him. Tornadoes tamed.
After a recommendation from a friend we called Bob. Almost immediately after Bob started her training our 9 month old puppy was much more relaxed. Now after 3 weeks she has mastered most commands. Bob was very helpful in answering all my questions and I now have a solid base to continue her training. Highly recommend!
After sending my King Charles Cavalier Spaniel to a trainer for three weeks and spending waaaayy too much money for almost no results, I called Bob. I read all the reviews and said to myself " this guy is too good to be true". After a phone consultation with Bob, he began working on a daily basis with my 8 month old pup. Bob delievered every thing he said he would and did so in the time frame that he said he would. Save yourself the time, money and frustration and call Bob FIRST!!
Our dog loved Bob! We have a somewhat rare breed, Bouvier de Flandres. Other trainers we'd contacted had no experience with the breed. Bob, however, had trained several of them! He scheduled our session and went right to work doing what he certainly does best and is quite passionate about; for, our dog responded quite well and looked forward to each session! His expertise was immediately evident, and his knowledge is substantial. He's left us with great strategies that even our visitors can implement. Thanks for quality of service and supreme commitment!!
Bob started working with our Doberman Oscar and three weeks later we are amazed at how well behaved and trained our dog is. Bob has a real gift for working with and training dogs and we would highly recomend him to everyone with a dog!!!
Bob Moorefield was the first call we made when our new dog was ready for training. He had trained two previous German Shepherds and we knew he was the one to handle the challenges of the latest one. She was a rescued six year old, never house trained, spayed or obedience trained. A breederís dog, she had lived in a kennel all of her life, ran and barked outdoors and knew nothing of house or city living. She was a sweet, timid creature, easily frightened by sudden changes. Home training was perfect for her as she has learned obedience, first in a safe environment, and then out in the big world. Bobís experience, patience and love of dogs makes him the best there is. A consummate professional in every respect.
Bob was referred to us by our neighbors. Passion and excellence in any field is always easily observable. Bobs love of dogs is immediatley evident as is his passion for his profession. He bonded with our new Lab puppy from the start. The training was a wonderful experience for both us and our dog which responded beautifully. We are tremendously satisfied and will try to come up with some good excuses for Bob to come back and work with our dog more. We highly recommend Alpha Academy and Bob Moorefield.
We have two young Cavalier King Charles puppies and we are a very busy family. Bob came in and expertly guided us on the path of adjusting to our new puppies and helping the puppies to adjust to us. Things were so stressful at first that we thought about giving up one of the puppies to another family. I am so glad we hung in there. Thanks to Bob, our puppies are doing wonderfully and responding like champs to the commands that Bob taught us. He is a very positive instructor and our dogs absolutely loved him!
Bob, has once again helped us with the training of our new pet. He conducted his lessons in our home daily for an hour over a three week period. It was convenient and great to keep our dog with us during training. Bob is courteous and punctual and achieved great results with Roscoe.
When it comes to dog trainers, Bob is absolutely the best. He understands dogs. His kind, positive approach to training works for dogs and also inexperienced handlers. He makes sure dogs are successful and builds skills in a steady step by step progression. Nothing beats having a well behaved dog. The great part is Bob comes to your home. How easy is that?
