We first met Carrie Monteleon years ago, when she trained our Dalmatian, Damian. He had been abused, and bounced around from family to family, before we got him at only 7months of age. He came to us with a lot of baggage and aggression. Carrie turned Damian around and he was with us 3 months short of his birthday.
His long life is attributed to his happiness that Carrie helped us find and the wonderful food that Carrie recommended we put him on. About a year and a half of not having a pet we decided it was time.
In comes Riley, our German Shorthaired Pointer. Who else to call but Carrie MonteLeon - and Alpha Dog Training. We knew that it would not take long for this smart puppy to figure out who was going to be the master of the house. We picked Riley up on a Saturday and Carrie was at our home the following week training our then 9 week old pup. She is now going on 6 months old and is just a wonderful well behaved little girl. She will be getting a brother over the next few weeks. Without Carrie helping us over the bumps, and learning curves with Riley, I can't say that we would have decided to get the second pup, but knowing that Carrie will be helping us with Logan makes it all possible. We cannot possiblly say enough good things about Carrie & Alpha Dog Training, If you have a puppy or dog in your life, you owe it to them to call Carrie. Riley loves seeing Carrie and we just know that Logan will love her too.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Aunt Carrie for teaching me how to be a good girl for Mommy and Daddy…. Love Riley - Tom and Cathy Wiley, Hazlet, NJ *(Pictures of Riley Wiley on the PHOTOS PAGE)
It's been 2 years since you came and trained my Oreo
ause of you I have great dog. Oreo is so well behaved
that he goes over my neighbor's house for play dates.
I love the fact that I can walk outside, go down the block
and not have to take Oreo's leash! When another dog
walks past us all I have to do is tell Oreo stay down and
leave it AND HE DOES!! Some other things you taught
him as not to jump on people or furniture; stay away
from the door and kitchen; and not to eat foodthat
falls on the floor. When I think back of how scared
Tiffany and me were of him, I have to laugh. You had
to train Oreo to listen to me and teach us not to be
afraid... AND YOU DID :). Thank you Carrie for turning
Oreo into the perfect pet.

Hi Carrie, We decided to let Sig write the testimonial herself, so she says WOOF WOOF BARK BARK RUFF WOOF BARK. In translation we can not thank you enough for all that you have taught and help guide us in teaching our very stubborn bulldog. Sig has learned so much from you and naming just a few as sit, stay, down, leave it and come. The best part of all is how you were able to in just one session teach our puppy to finally walk on a leash. Thanks to you we can actually leave the driveway now and not have our bully just throw herself on the pavement and refuse to walk. We know it requires follow through on our part now, however, your dog whisper ability allows us now to have the power to do so. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Hi Carrie, I just want to let you how lucky we are that you are training Max. My parents just left, and as they were leaving Max ran outside without his leash. He bolted out but I called his name and yelled "DOWN", with my hand signal, and wouldn't you know it....that big Marmaduke dog stopped in his tracks :) and dropped!!! He was so excited to be out. I know he would have run down the block if you weren't training us!!! So I just want to say thanks for all your hard work!
Carrie MonteLeon, of Alpha Dog Training has trained virtually every dog I have had for nearly 20 years. I have, do, and will continue to recommend Alpha Dog Training to anyone and everyone who needs their dog to be professionally trained. Art Homewood, Aberdeen, NJ
I took him for a walk and he almost dragged me into the middle of traffic when a train came. At the same time, if you reached for his collar to slow him down he turned dominant and had an attitude. After meeting him, she temperament-tested and evaluated him and saw him for the sweet dog that he was. Turns out, he was trained by one of those guys where you leave the dog there for a month and they put a shock collar on the dog and train it through fear. Carrie spent countless hours on the phone with me convincing me to keep him. Long story short ---He passed his very strict test with flying colors and now works at Jersey Shore Medical Center and Hospice Centers.
"Carrie MonteLeon of Alpha Dog Training trained my American Bulldog Sonny a little over a year ago ,thankfully to this day he listens to all his commands, and is truly a pleasure to own... Good training is so important to your family and to the public in general. An obedient dog is a good dog , and Carrie can get the job done for sure. Oh and it helps to have a smart dog too ..lol" Frank Arcello owner of Sonny, an American Bulldog, in Manalapan, NJ

"Carrie of Alpha Dog Training came to us after Dylan, our English Mastiff, was a year old and started to show signs of dominance. Dylan is now over 200 lbs., loveable and easily controlled by a one word command. Because of Carrie and Alpha Dog Training, I have total control of Dylan. "Animals respect Carrie because she respects them and trains with love."

"I contacted Carrie MonteLeon from Alpha Dog Training concerning my 9 month old Golden Retriever "Baily" whom was becoming aggressive and dominant toward my children. Carrie immediately came to my home and tailored a plan that specifically targeted our concerns and issues. Her training technique is very effective. It is a combination of intense training and lots of love. After just a few sessions we immediately noticed a BIG difference in our dog's behavior. We are now rapidly gaining control of our dog and are finally having the dog that we dreamed of...a well trained, loving pet. Thanks for all your help!"

"It has been 15 years since I had my last puppy and I was apprehensive to get another one. After choosing a Saint Bernard, I was nervous that wouldn't be able to control him when he got bigger. Carrie has given me the skills to have a well behaved and obedient dog. She has even aken the time to teach my children how to properly handle Baxter. She s so caring that she calls and follows up on how our dog is doing when he's not here. I would recommend her services to anyone."
