"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. "

Dog saver.

"Alex and his team at Ivy League Canine Academy saved our Boy. Han Solo (1yr old shepherd Boxer mix)would be aggressive to anyone who walked in our front door, there was no walking him, he would bolt out of the house when ever the door opened, he would eat things out of anxiety and his fence aggression still has claw marks on the fence. Not any more, Alex and his team had Han Solo for 2 weeks and they have transformed him into a new puppers. I was so desperate in trying to train on my own, I felt hopeless until I got in touch with Alex. After our first phone call I knew he could help our boy. Voice commands, walks, houseguests, and frolicking in the backyard is all better now thanks to Ivy League Canine Academy. Now Han Solo has helped train his big sister Leia (2yr wht lab) "

"I can't say enough good things about Alex and his team at Ivy League Canine Academy. Our 8 month old rescue puppy Daisy was running our household. Daisy was licking/chewing walls, shredding dog beds, chewing on rocks, shoes anything she could get into her mouth. When walking Daisy, actually when Daisy walked us, she pulled us in whatever direction she wanted to go and was easily distracted. We were at a point of giving up on Daisy. I contacted 2 trainers/training facilities before speaking to Alex. After speaking with Alex, I felt confident Alex and the Ivy League team was the best choice. We chose the 2 week board and train and it has made a world of difference. Alex not only trains your pet, he also trains the owners how to coach and reinforce training. Daisy is now an amazing member of our family. We are able to redirect Daisy confidently and calmly away from unwanted behaviors. She is comfortable with being in place for an extended period of time. Alex updates you daily with videos and teaches you to be an effective coach. Alex brings your pet to you on the final day of training to transition your pet back into your home. Alex and the Ivy league team saved Daisy and us! My husband and I can't say enough about how thankful we are with the results. If you are considering training for your dog or puppy, Alex and the Ivy League Team is the way to go!"

"Before training, my fiancé and I had our dog, Harmony, for a little over a year. She’s a very anxious dog and gets very stressed when pushed out of her comfort zone. When we attempted to walk her outdoors she would plant herself and refuse to move since she was afraid of being outside of the house. We also found that she would become very defensive when visitors would come to our house. She would become aggressive, bark, growl, everything. This caused us to not be able to bring her around anyone. We decided to try the 2 week board and train program in hopes of at minimum being able to walk Harmony outside. Truthfully, after hearing what the guarantees of the training were, I didn’t believe Harmony would be able to do certain things. She’s such a high anxiety dog that I couldn’t even imagine her walking around in public with so many distractions. But yet we still decided to do it to see the outcome. That’s where our wonderful trainer, Kindra came in. She was so comforting from the start and reassured us that all of our concerns were normal. It made me so happy that she believed Harmony could learn and thrive during and after the training process. Kindra was so patient with Harmony and we couldn’t have asked for a better trainer! After training, Harmony is able to utilize the skills she learned throughout her day and is calmer around visitors. I am absolutely blown away by the work that Kindra did with our Harmony and we will forever be grateful for her and the training program! "
