Alpha Dog Training Center


“Our dog Jake loves his visits to Alpha Dog. He gets all the attention, exercise and socialization he craves. Elizabeth is super-friendly, knowledgeable and professional.  The facility is immaculate and we are always taken care of in a timely manner. To our family, Alpha Dog is the top choice in canine training, daycare and boarding.”

“Our first experience with Alpha Dog was having our Jack Russell Terrier puppy in for training. Elizabeth trained Max to be a well behaved dog and he’s so happy and proud to learn new tricks. Max loves going to Alpha Dog! We feel comfortable and confident leaving our furry family member with Elizabeth for any period of time. Max comes home happy and exhausted from so much exercise and socialization with other pets. We know he’s well taken care of by staff who really care and in a clean safe environment.”

“Hi! My name is Ollie and I was born at Alpha Dog. I spent my first 2 months there with my parents and brothers and sisters. Elizabeth took really good care of us! One day my human mom saw me in the office and it was “love at first sight “!!

Probably because I am just so DARN CUTE!! She was very new at the whole dog raising thing, so she had to rely on Elizabeth A LOT for training tips and all sorts of advice. At first we came to classes every Saturday at Alpha Dog and worked on simple commands and walking together. I think it made mom feel better.

Elizabeth even came to see my new home and neighborhood to give mom more pointers. It must have worked because I think I am very well behaved now! My mom also takes me to Alpha’s doggie daycare sometimes and that is about my favorite thing in the world! I get to run and play all day with the other small dogs and come home worn out. I got to stay overnight for a couple weekends at Alpha Dog and they were super nice to me–even playing fetch with me!

So, if you’re a dog and live in this area, I hope your mom or dad will let you come visit Alpha Dog too. Trust me, you’ll have a BLAST!!!!”

“I highly recommend Alpha Dog.  We bought our puppies there and their help in our transition to owning dogs was very helpful.  Elizabeth always answered questions that I had as a new dog owner.  We continue to board our puppies there whether for the day or for a week.  Knowing that they are cared for while we travel makes it easier to travel.  Our pups, Sandy and Radar, actually can’t wait to go when they see they are at Alpha Dog.  They lead us quickly down the path to the door.  The care they receive is obviously very positive by their behavior.  I know that Elizabeth and her team love our puppies as much as we do.  Alpha Dog is a high quality facility that I highly recommend.”

“Thank you for turning things around for Max and our home.  Your schooling has made Max into a dog that people can now enjoy being around and I can enjoy having in my home.  If someone said earlier that this dog could change, I would have called them crazy, but your schooling literally saved him from being euthanized.  You all did a fantastic job with him and I can’t tell you what that means to both of us!  THANK YOU!”
