"I have a reactive female German Shepherd who had previous training but I need a little bit more help learning how to handle her. I couldn’t walk her in the apartment complex because her reactivity was so severe towards other dogs and people and I couldn’t have anyone she hadn’t met in my apartment either. With the help of Alex and Maddie I am now able to handle her reactivity effectively and she’s no longer acting crazy in the apartment complex and we are also able to be in public with zero reactivity ☺️ hire them, you won’t regret it!"

"Before moving to San Antonio, I knew that I needed to continue training with my dog Bella. Started looking online for different trainers, and I found Ivy League canine Academy. I only read the reviews from other dog owners, and Alex‘s story. I knew that this was the right place for Bella. Alex called me right away and after two hours on the phone talking about the training process, the trainers, and my dog I signed up immediately. Mel was EXCEPTIONAL! Bella took to Mel immediately. It was harder for me to leave on the initial drop off. Mel included me in the process every step of the way. Mel asked me what I wanted to focus on during her stay and she covered everything! I would receive the homework of the day then my dogs’ session. I would be laughing watching my dog be stubborn but then reluctantly give in and follow. After the first three days, it was like night and day. Bella was listening and following commands. I am extremely grateful to Mel for sharing her knowledge and training skills with me. This is going to make mine and my dogs’ relationship so much healthier and happier! Thanks again Mel!"

"Big Decision! But it paid off in spades. We had a dog that was very reactive to other dogs and external stimuli--it was a BIG problem. We were desperate to find a solution before something happened. I started interviewing trainers and after meeting with several, I found Alex, the owner of Ivy League Canine Academy. Alex explained the psychology of the issue and their proven record for modifying the behavior of dogs. Fast forward--we were paired with Melissa A.--Lucy lived with her and her pack, in their home for 3 weeks. Lucy was trained with tender care and compassion, paired with expectation and reward/ consequence. My dog was delivered back to my home, re-introduced to our pack and we are applying the education/ tools Lucy learned with Melissa at Ivy League Canine Academy and we look forward to many more years with this little black dog. Price? Well--it is an INVESTMENT/ Cheaper than a lawsuit and balanced with price is the reward of having a well-behaved dog that you can take anywhere with the assurance that you will be in total control. I highly recommend this company."

"Thank you! I loved that you don’t just send your dog off and hope they come back a trained dog- you see daily videos and have check-ins to learn everything as well."

"This was an amazing experience for my husband and I as well as our two babies, Luna and Stella. I absolutely love the in-home training as our dogs got lots of personal, one-to-one time. The training videos were very helpful and the progress videos were good to see. This is an A plus business model and you can tell that all the trainers love what they do. I will definitely be a return customer as I truly appreciate the difference it made in our home."

"Ivy League Canine is superior to any other trainings my family has experienced. We have had working dogs, protection dogs and “normal dogs” prior to Alex and his team. This is the difference, they love your dog! They will train your dog and also train us humans! Nobody wants a dog that doesn’t listen or you can’t take anywhere. Within 3 weeks my pup is a whole new dog and she has a whole new family! I can’t express enough how amazing this team is and how much time they put into our family not just our pup! We will not go anywhere else! Thank you Ivy League for helping us and creating peace and freedom for us! Jenn R"
