Alpha Instincts Dog Training
Dog Trainers Huntsville, AL
Your local professional Huntsville dog trainers with a passion for training K9s. Alpha Instincts transforms dogs and families by fostering communication between owners and dogs through balanced dog-training. Our trainers have the skills to deal with any issue, from leash pulling to aggression.
Our programs focus on obedience, as much as they do on behavioral rehabilitation. We see plenty of dogs that have great obedience skills, however, they are not able to hold a command around basic distractions or maintain a calm state of mind. It is so important for us and the dog, that we can work with the dog on these issues in real-life scenarios.
Huntsville is a city in Madison County and Limestone County, Alabama, United States, with a small portion extending into Morgan County. It is the county seat of Madison County. Located in the Appalachian region of northern Alabama, Huntsville is the most populous city proper in the state.Huntsville was founded within the Mississippi Territory in 1805 and became an incorporated town in 1811. When Alabama was admitted as a state in 1819, Huntsville was designated for a year as the first capital, before that was moved to more central settlements. The city developed across nearby hills north of the Tennessee River, adding textile mills in the late nineteenth century.
Two weeks ago our 4 year old, very active GSD was brought home by his trainer Vanessa. He had just completed a three week board & train. I cannot say enough good things about the experience from the initial consult to our much improved daily experience with him. The communication with Vanessa was there throughout. She posted photos and videos beginning the first day she had him. I had previously taken him through two different training programs at a couple of highly rated Huntsville training facilities, and while he had some basics down, we felt he would be much better off with more in depth training. Vanessa was able to do wonders with his recall, and helping him exist calmly in “place” inside our home. He is able to heel almost effortlessly in crowded public places and can calmly sit in “place” in public as well. He had some issues with barking excessively while in the fenced in area at home. With the tools and training Vanessa equipped us with, we have been able to see a dramatic improvement in that behavior as well. We are going extremely pleased with his training and highly recommend Alpha Instinct, and Vanessa in particular. She confidently and lovingly took care of our active and previously very anxious boy. I’m pretty cheap, but in our case I believe the investment was well worth it. The company offered a military discount and allowed me to spread out the total over a few monthly payments, both making it easier to swallow. If you think your dog would benefit from the help of a professional, check them out. I’m really happy I did.
Rachel and her team are amazing! If you live in the greater Huntsville area I highly recommend them for all of your dog training and boarding needs. Thank you for having helped so many dogs and their owners! Y'all are rockstars!
