I want to say how grateful I am that I found Alice from Rufflovedogtraing services . Alice is a kind and wonderful person who cares so much for the well being of our fur babies . She is excellent at her craft . I made a new friend in the process as well as my dogs learning how to obedient! I trust Alice 100% and has so much knowledge about the animal industry. ❤️❤️🐕🐕. Training 3 of my fur babies wasn’t easy lol . But they are doing great now . Alice you’re the best ! ❤️🐾🐕Sep 23, 2019VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply
Hi Dana, Thank you very much for the great review. I lOve working w/you & the 3 furkids and am looking forward to seeing you in group training classes w/ the puppy Foxy Roxy. It’s so nice to meet new friends who have so much in common. I look forward to a continued friendship with you🐾 RufF lOve, Alice🐶❤️
Alice is amazing! I don't know how she does it! Alice is training my dog. Milo learns really quickly.He loves Alice. I truly believe she is a dog whisperer1. I am looking forward to the next class!May 26, 2017VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply
Milo is a pleasure to work with as were you. I hope to see you in September again @ "dOggie bOOt cAmp" this time for some socialization & fun learning w/me & the "pack"!
Alice is the real deal! During our first meeting, we discussed all the members of the household (pets & humans), from diets, behavior, issues, schedules, to activities, grooming, and much more. We were able to resolve basic commands and for the first time, we were able to master the walk with both pets, all during the first visit. Needless to say, I booked more sessions. I can't wait to see the improvements we will make as a pack over the next few weeks! Thank you, Alice & RufF lOve dOg traiNIng :) From Dylan, Omie and their newly trained (very happy) humans. xoxoJun 6, 2017VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply

My fiance and I were extremely happy with the results of dog training with Alice we currently have two pit bulls and a Puggle and we're working together to try to be able to walk all three dogs at the same time as well as deal with a bit of female on female. Alice was a pleasure to work with as she took her time and customize the training to focus on our dogs our needs an hour goals in a short. Of time we were able to accomplish everything that we wanted. We were told by numerous vets that one of our pitbulls would be unable to live with other dogs Alice reassured us that she would do the best she could to help us achieve a comfortable situation for everyone involved and she did she fulfilled her promises and efficient way I would highly recommend Alice to anyone looking to train a new dog old dog or any dogs with issues as she is one of the best on the island we are very happy with our outcomeNov 11, 2017VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing varies depending on the Program you select. All Programs begin with the Consultation mentioned below. Program examples are PHD Degree, MASTERS Degree, BA Degree, ASSOCIATES Degree, College Prep, High School Degree, Grade School Degree, etc or a specifically designed program to fit your particular needs. Discounts are available to our Vets and Military personnel.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We will start with an in depth private in-home Consultation which is up to 3 hours in length and prefer the entire "pack" (household) to be there. We will cover your dog's complete history to date, have a Nutrition Consultation, Evaluataion of your dog's abilities and discuss information regarding vaccines, heartworm, flea & tick protection available with non-toxic natural products. Then we will get started with our first session. Thereafter, we will decide on which Program is best suited for your needs. It all depends on how much direct help you prefer. Finally, we will work together, usually on a weekly basis to accomplish all the goals set forth in our Consultation and get the job done.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My training was "hands-on" in NY's only proprietary school for Professional Dog Trainers. I like to stay current by reading every journal, article, recall and new developments which are all at my disposal and I share all pertinent information on my 3 fb pages daily, as well as share the info w/my contact list via email on a regular basis. I also attend as many Conferences as possible and regularly takes online webinars, classes & compile data from dozens of resources to be shared with my clientele.
