We are currently running 7 classes per week, We will always try to make room for you and your dogs in our class. If not we will simply create a new class, unless we are at our limit. We run anywhere from 4-12 dogs per class.
Not only do we train dogs, we train the trainers as well. All CERTIFIED DOG TRAINERS are required to come through ALPHA K9 TRAINING, after their internship classes are met.
At ALPHA K9 TRAINING we do more than train dogs. Our classes are fun, educational, and very rewarding for the dog as well as the owners.
We enjoy watching the dogs others have labeled as "problem dogs". As they form into loving pets, that strive to do what is right.
Our training techniques are user friendly and does not harm the dogs in any way.
Dog Training is only one of the many aspects of working with dogs that we offer. We also deal with PROBLEM SOLVING, which is clearly one of the biggest reasons people give up on their dogs.
These photos are just a few of the many happy dog owners we work with weekly. They love their dogs and it shows.

Glenn, Maxi & I are thrilled with our training, the first 6 wks. have just awesome! I also wanted to tell you that I had taken Maxi w/me to take the trash outside the other day, our neighbor was out there w/her little dog off leash & Maxi started after her, I quickly pulled her leash & told her to leave it! She not only listened to my command but did not look at the other dog again :) I was so excited that she not only listened to me but that I had that kind of command w/my dog :) In the short 6 weeks we have been training w/you, I can see a very definite change in my dog, as well as other dogs she has trained with. Thank you for showing us how to not only love our dogs but also what a huge reward it is in training them to be well balanced and trained dogs :) Thanks again for all your guidance! It is simply priceless!! Tammy & Maxine
We are so happy to hear the great news Tami, your hard work and determination paid off. You are a true lifesaver, who knows wher little Maxi would be without your love. People like you and many others make our job co much more rewarding. And now your in the advanced class, keep up the good work Tami. 8/12/12
Our dog Terra has been in the training class. Tonight I was bringing groceries and invited her to come outside with me. Terra ran ahead (off leash) and headed around the car. She started barking and I saw a large dog across the street. I gave the :leave it\" command and Terra came to me. I told her to sit and stay and she sat while the dog and owner walked past the house. It was remarkable. Then she did responded the same way when the dog and owner passed again. How great it was to see her behave, not run into the street, and respond to the verbal command. Thanks, Glen! 6/27/12
Thanks Dave, It really makes our day when the techniques we are using in the classes are applied in a practical application of everyday life.Terra is a very smart dog, and only want's to do what is good. Great Job!6/28/12
I would like to give a testimonial:
My family inherited Pounce/Buster, a two year old mixed breed dog from our son. He had never been on a leash and was terrified of everything and everyone.
Glen agreed to come to our home for training. After observing our new out of control dog , Glen stated\"baby steps\" and gave the first handouts. I followed the instructions and my family did not think he was trainable.
With the help of Glen, \"the dog wisperer\" Pounce/Buster continued to improve and follow commands, altho we were not able even to get him on a leash. I finally managed to leash him by singing songs and believe it or not he passed the class. I owe this feat to Glen, a wonderful and professional trainer. Buster is now walking one mile twice a day and loves it !! Thanks Glenn,
Thank you Barb, that was very kind. That was a fun and rewarding class. Keep up the good work Barb!!
Just a note to tell you a few things.. I know that Dotty has done great and so does my family. They all see a change in her.. But for others to notice is even better.. I took Dotty to the Vet(companion animal) this week. And the Vet ask what happened to her, she is being better than ever.. I just smiled and told her praises of You and Your training classes.. She smiles and was very pleased to hear good things and she could see for her self that is has worked with Dotty.. She said she had some clients ask about training, and she did not have any feed back on any in town. (good feed back or results). So I was really pleased that someone else noticed the change in my good Girl.. we are still working on everything we don't let a day go by that we are not working on something.. doing well with the clicker. and I am making things for Dotty to jump over, went and got all the stuff and one of the guys that works for us is going to help me if I need help. Looking forward to the next step with Dotty please let me know when our next class starts. and I would like to start Jackie in June if you have room for her.. So just wanted to let you know about the thing at the Vets office she was really stoked to hear and see the positive results of Your Training classes.. More Later
That was so nice Mrs Anderson, You and Dottie did all of the work. Great job!! Thank you,
