Bob has trained dogs for 40+ yrs and is greatly respected by dogs & their owners. He worked with us in our home but we also worked outside a lot since a key to success is that the dog behaves as trained, regardless of diff situations and distractions. Bob's a kind man and is very flexible & accommodating. It gives me great confidence to know that I can always call on him and he'll be there for any help I may need going forward. He's truly the best and I highly recommend him for any dog training needs you may have.

This is our second Boxer to be trained by Bob. The first one grew to be such a delightfully well mannered dog, the "Mayor" of the neighborhood, there was no question that our new pup needed Bob. In the first week of training, our puppy bolted into the front yard while we were letting guests in and would not come back. I remembered the whistle that Bob gave me and blew twice. Our pup came back immediately! The training was already working. I'm now enjoying long walks with him right by my side and interacting with our neighbors, both human and dog.

A friend suggested I call Bob to help train my 4month old standard poodle --she raved about his kindness and skill. I agree: Bob knows how to work with dogs and achieve results that are repeatable by the owner. My dog, Gami, clearly likes him. He is gentle and firm. Patient with me , too, as I need as much practice as Gami. His corrections, human and canine are always constructive. Bob's #1 with us!

Bob Moorefield has trained my last three dogs. He is a kind consistant trainer,and I would not use anyone else. I have the utmost respect for him and his methods. He knows dogs inside and out, and handles each dog in a way that is best for them. No two people are alike and no two dogs are alike...he is spot on knowing what each individual dog needs. Bob is punctual and polite....and very patient with clients and their dog. What more could a person want??

Bob Moorefield of Alpha Academy of Dog Training, took a good dog and made him even better. I adopted Cody from a rescue society and wanted to make sure I was a responsible dog owner and Cody was comfortable in his new home and knew we both needed some good training. A co-worker referred Bob and within three weeks (everyday for 45 minutes), Bob trained me and Cody with all of the basics such as walking by your side, sit, stay, heel, come, "go to your place", and crating when away from home. He is very knowledgeable and has YEARS of dog training experience with police dogs and movie dogs. Bob spoke with me at length over the phone several times, provided basic training tips, and answered questions before I secured his services. He was ALWAYS on time everyday and would even go to where your dog was such as doggy day care. He is very gentle with your dog, extremely responsive, and has a sincere passion and care for all animals. I look forward to walking Cody everyday and practicing the training drills we learned. I HIGHLY recommend Bob for your dog training needs and promise you will not be disappointed. I wasn't. I'm even considering some advanced or trick training in the future. It does require some work but it is FUN, FUN, FUN and WELL worth it!!! Even though our training is over, Bob is always available by phone and will schedule follow up sessions as needed.
