Brag, Brag, & more Brags!!!

"I spent a lot of time interviewing and searching for a good dog trainer nearby Boerne so that my husband and I could put Acey, our GSP in training to ensure that she would grow up well-behaved and obedient. Acey, almost as fast as a deer, and definitely the most energetic and free-spirited dog we have ever had needed some good kind person to instill some listening skills in her body. As I was scanning the internet i saw "Ivy League Canine Academy" and that caught my attention! I left a message and the owner/trainer, Alex, returned my call. From that first conversation I knew that this was the place that we needed for Acey to get some excellent training! We set a date and "voila" that day finally came for us to deliver her to him. As we drove up I wondered how in the world he would train this active GSP at his neighborhood. Oh, how little did I know what was going to take place with her! Alex assured me that Acey was going to be fine so we said good-by and drove away! When the videos started coming, the same day that we dropped her off, I was amazed at what he would be doing. Never had I dreamed that I would see his methods in a video everyday---it got to be where I waited for that daily video to hit my email! The video's showed me the kindness and respect that he used in his training and how Acey responded to him. There was nothing more fun than to see these words: No Ma'am, Yes Ma'am, Thank you Ma'am with the No's and Yes's while training her. I'm sure that she would love to live in his home!!! What he and his assistants taught her in two weeks is sticking and fantastic. I continue to use his language and training often and she is the most wonderful dog we have had in, let's see, 56 years of having dogs in our home. This is the very best training I could have asked for Acey! Make that call and in two weeks you will have the best dog ever! Thank you ALEX and your Assistants!"

"Alex trained my Onyx a year ago and when we added to our family, well we needed him to train Coal too. I thought Coal would be an easier dog than Onyx, but he wasn’t. So I immediately texted Alex and asked when I could sign Coal up. Both my boys needed to be on the same page. My house is peaceful once again. I needed that! Coal now stays on his place no problem. He heals, he jumps in my Jeep (that was huge for me) and doesn’t jump on my grand babies anymore. Coal is a different dog and I thank Alex for that. You experience a different love and relationship with your babies because of the training. Alex also always answers my questions. And I have many. I appreciate that from him tremendously. Thanks again to the ilk9academy team! "

Stellar Work!

"We had a one-year-old Plott Hound rescue (Koa) who was basically out of control when we got him. Regardless of our measures to modify his behavior, he did what he pleased. We spoke to several trainers, and a friend who trains MWD advised me that Alex and ILK9A were the best he knew of. I immediately contacted Alex, and he addressed our concerns and explained his process. We agreed to a start date and enrolled Koa. As promised, we received a video of Koa and his training progress daily, along with videos to watch so that we knew our job was for Koa and how to work with him. We watched the videos in awe!! We did two training sessions with Alex and Koa before the final release at our home. Koa is so much better and a joy to have around now. He is getting better every day as we work with him! Thank you, Alex!"

"Can’t say enough about Alex and his way w dogs. Buttons was doing her own thing for 18 mos and I was unable to train her. Alex took her for two weeks and she became another dog. Obedient, calm, and happy to be that. I was also trained on how to handle her here at home. Daily videos and an in home training in her environment rounded out her training sessions. I am so pleased with the Ivy Legue Canine Academy I highly recommend them to make your experience w your dog a positive relationship. "

"Thank you isn’t even enough. Alex and his IvyLeagueCanineAcademy team gave much needed structure to me and Odesza’s life. Odesza was lacking confidence, appropriate reactions to other dogs, and impulse control. I was lacking in leadership and I didn’t know how to control or understand how to get my dog to obey. Within just two weeks the progress was just extraordinary. The way Alex explains things is easy to understand and learn. It takes work and patience but concepts like giving your dog a job works wonders. All these lessons and teachable moments from Alex has changed me and Odesza’s relationship for the best! The change is not only recognized by me but every single person who sees Odesza’s behavior always tells me he is the most well behaved dog. He always has his phone handy and answers all questions that I have. Alex and his team got us to where we are and many thanks to them. We will continue working hard and enjoying the positive results. I will always be grateful and continue to go to Alex with questions/ and his future training. "

"We have a German Shepherd Boxer mix. Han Solo was a Covid puppy and was vicious when it came to anyone coming into the house. We knew Han Solo was going to harm someone. We felt so hopeless, until we met Alex. Ivy League canine academy saved our boy. He has been home for 2 months and he has a different disposition when it comes to being so anxious and ferocious when someone walks through our door. Through daily discipline Han Solo functions anxiety free and people can now come and go safely. His training has also helped his old sister Leia. Play time, dinner time, and walks are 1000% better with these 2 two year olds. Alex and his team were so worth the time and money to save our sweet boy. Thank you Ivy league canine academy. "
