Babee is a one year old female Blue Heeler mix I adopted from the Atlanta Humane Society six weeks ago. Although she is very smart, her mother (me) didn't have the patience to train her on my own. Bob Moorefield, owner of Alpha Dog Academy, was the first person I thought of when seeking a trainer because one of his trainers trained an AHS puppy I adopted 25 years ago. Bob trained Babee at my home and also worked outside to put her in different situations where distractions would occur. In just 3 weeks, Bob taught Babee to sit, lay down, stay and "go to place" in addition to other commands. He is a fabulous trainer and as important, an amazing teacher for the owner. He was very patient with me and made sure that he pointed out areas of improvement when necessary. I can't say enough about Bob's professionalism, compassion for animals and patience while training Babee and me. I know I can always call Bob if needed with any follow up questions and/or support.
Bob has trained dogs for 40+ yrs and is very passionate about proper training (for both the dogs and owners!). He is greatly respected by our dogs & family. 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. It's amazing how much progress I've made with my 1 and 2 year old Rotts in just 3 short weeks! My neighbors have even been complementing their good behavior. I weigh 100 lbs and both my dogs add up to 200, and I was able to walk both together on a heel -- a feat I never dreamed possible! I can't say enough about how wonderful he is, but I will close by saying that he's a kind, patient 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.
Our new puppy is the second dog Bob has trained, the first being the BEST DOG EVER! So there was no question that we should have Bob come back to do the same with this pup and to give me a refresher course. ( It is about training both the dog and the owner )Once again, He has worked his magic. Starting with day one, we saw progress daily over the 3 weeks with Bob. Sit/stay, down, place, heel, etc., our puppy was learning fast. One of the best things was using a whistle with the come command. After our puppy bolted into the front yard while I was answering the door, I used the whistle and he came right back. I then started to use the place/down/stay command before opening the door! There is no doubt that this dog will also be the BEST DOG EVER! Everyone should have Bob in their puppy's life.
Bob Moorefield has been truly amazing with our little Gracie the Westie Terrier. Honestly, he has been a life-saver for us as new dog owners as well. The change in Gracie is a 180 compared from when we first got her until now. In just one month, Gracie is able to sit, lay down, stay, and "go to your place". And, we are not too far away from "roll over". The way Gracie responds to Bob is so fun to watch, and we are hoping for that response to rub on us some. Bob Moorefield is not only a great dog trainer, but more importantly, a great teacher for the dog owner. He has taught us more than we could ever hope for.
Bob Morefield is amazing. In just 2 weeks, he trained my Great Pyrenees rescue to heel, sit, come, stay, down and he also helped him overcome a paralyzing fear of our basement stairs. My dog is so excited to see him every time he arrives and he is clearly smitten through his training sessions.On top of all that, he really cares about the dogs. My dog got really sick for a few days and Bob called frequently to check on him to see how he was doing and offer his support.I can't recommend h highly enough, he truly is amazing with dogs and a super nice and helpful man as well.
