"Really wonderful experience with ILCA, our trainer Melissa is so amazing. We were very worried about my dog and got to the point we were going to put him up for adoption due to aggression. But the academy was really able to train him and us (his owners) to the point to look for queues for aggressive and how to tackle them before turning into a fight. Now we are able to have our dogs at home and not be walking on eggs shells. I couldn’t be happier with my experience with them."

"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."
