Dear Carlos:

 

We just wanted to say thank you for the quality training you provided to our dogs.  We cannot believe how obedient and well behave they are at the house.  It's a pleasure to live with them and it's a big relief!  We realize that we learned living with them is a comfortable and loving thing.       

 

Thank you.

Carlos,

 

I would like to let you know how pleased I am with our training results over the past six months. Before we started training together many people told me that I had a great dog, but also one that was very hard to train. You took the time to evaluate me and my dog and figure out a training routine that would work for both of us.

 

Because of your individualized training program the sport of Schutzhund has been brought to a whole new level for both Sunny and myself.

 

Thank You,

Hi,
My name is Elaine and I am proudly owned by a big, red, male Doberman named Dublin. We've done many things, and some of them were quite a challenge. I had his AKC Championship and his AKC obedience titles and decided to do agility. We had some rough times until I found the right trainer. She was (and still is) awesome. Chris had an understanding of my dogs needs and helped us both work as a team. All his agility titles I give her credit for.
Dublin got injured and his agility career came to an end. However, he was used to training 3-4 days a week and trialing on the weekends. Retirement was not an option...he still wanted to work. Another good friend of mine had been bugging me to get him started in tracking. So we embarked on tracking. Started out in Jan. in about a foot of snow. I took him out once a week and we tracked. I did a Tracking Education day with a local tracking club. I learned a lot about how AKC rules and regs worked, and how a dog is able to track. I also learned a bit about how the handler "Handles". The club had a Tracking match, which we entered and Dublin passed and was then certified as a result. In the meantime, the AKC came out with new titles for dogs who completed agility titles, obedience titles and tracking titles ~ in different degrees. I wanted one (Veracity Companion Dog). I entered two tracking trials...he failed miserably. I went back out on weekends and "worked" him...he did not improve. Several people tried different things...but nothing was working. Then another friend and I went out one early morning to track and after seeing Dublin and speaking with me, she recommended Carlos Rojas.
 

Carlos was to tracking what Chris was to agility. He watched the dog work, and saw the problem. He can read the dogs and he knew what had to be done to make Dublin successful. We went out twice a week, every week for 2 1/2 months ~ the dog wasn't the only problem (as in agility, I take 50% of the blame) and Carlos worked on both ends of the lead. I'm proud to say that Dublin is the 1st AKC Champion in the history of Doberman's to achieve (as of this writing, I'm still waiting for confirmation) the VCD-2 (advanced agility, advanced obedience and Tracking). Carlos gets all the credit for his TD and I thank him for all his help. I'll be starting my rescue dog with him as well...I don't like repeating mistakes and when I wanted a mentor in Tracking, I got the best...

Learning to work my Dobermans with Carlos Rojas has been a tremendous benefit to both myself and my dogs.  They are happily learning, constantly improving, and most importantly, I am learning.

 

The combination of Carlos's expertise and Carlos's ability to communicate to me and my dogs is simply wonderful.

Carlos,

Thank you once again for the great dog we got from you.
We could not have gotten a better puppy. She has her share of puppy moments, but she is an extremely smart and loving dog. She is very social with other people and dogs, yet also very protective of her house.

The training you did with her was amazing and she loved working with you. You are truly a miracle worker. We can't wait to bring Freya back for the next level of training.

Thank you again,

Deciding where to bring your dog for training is not easy, you want to do the right thing for your pet, you want to be assured that your dog will be treated with love and care, and at the same time be obedience trained so that your family and you can share in the exciting and wonderful experience of having a dog be a part of your life.

 

Carlos Rojas is a master dog trainer and breeder of high level German Shepherds, his breeding program utilizes bloodlines from the top European working lines.

 

I have trained with Carlos for over four years, we train in Schutzhund, a dog sport that requires precise obedience, powerful protection work, and tracking, which is the ability for a dog to follow a track just from the scent of footsteps. The dog must not only excel in these three disciplines, the dog must also display an enjoyment of working as a team with the handler, this enjoyment of the dog and handler comes with the training being done with love and positive motivation.

 

It has taken me a long time to begin to understand how Carlos attains the consistency in his training. To start he evaluates the dog and trains every dog differently based on the dogs temperament, personality and other criteria’s. The most important talent that Carlos has, and I believe it to be a natural gift, is his ability to look into the dog’s soul, and understand what he needs to do to communicate with each and every dog. I have seen dogs bond instantly with Carlos, he puts his hands on the dog, makes the dog comfortable, and magic happens, the dog responds as if they have known each other forever.

 

Well I hope you and your dog have the best life together.

Hi Carlos

 

I was just looking through your website, wow, it has grown tremendously and your son is adorable. Hope all is well with you guys.  It seems like a lifetime ago when we bought Zoe (Ozi) from you guys and spent the summer training her. She is settling down now that she is getting on in years, she is still a beautiful dog and everyone still comments on it, she is now part of a pack of 5, yes we have finally cut off at 5 dogs. They love the farm life here in Colorado with the open spaces, open irrigation ditches to romp around in and they get to go on lots of fun walks.  I am attaching some recent pictures of Zoe for you guys to see.  Vee1 picture has Zoe in the front right with the rest of the pack. She gets on really well with other dogs now and we can walk her off leash.

 

Drop us a line when you get a chance out of your busy schedule.

Dear Carlos & Ai,

Thank you for breeding such an awesome dog, Sol is loving, strong, athletic & fearless.

I take her to work with me at a small airport and she welcomes all strangers and she loves
children.  Her favorite activity is diving into our pool, she is a great swimmer.  We cannot

wait until we get another pup from you, we've already picked out a name!

Thanks,

Hi Carlos,

Wanted to drop you a note to say Hello and send some recent photos for you.

Ilka is doing great. She remains a very happy dog and is extremely loyal to me, never leaving my side.

In fact, the photo of her on the couch with me was taken a couple months ago while I was sick, she climbed up with me and remained until I eventually got up.  And the other photos are while I was recording some new guitar tracks and of course, she keeps with me.

Hope you and the family are well and I look forward to visiting you again one day, be it for another pup or just to stop in for a social call.

Sincerely,

Hey Carlos & Ai,

 

We just wanted to thank you guys for breeding such a great dog.  You picked a perfect dog for our family.

Roman (Uileog) has the perfect temperament. He's great with the kids. He has become quite a babysitter.

I also want to say you did a great job of teaching me to train the dog. He's come a long way. Oh and thanks

for being there to answer all of our silly questions. I'm sending along some pictures for your site. Thanks again

and we'll see you in a couple of months.

Hi Carlos, Hi Ai,

 

Rob & I just want to THANK YOU sooooooooooooooo much for training Mickey.  He is such a joy to be around.  We couldn't be happier and we couldn't have done it without you.  Please feel free to use us as referrals.  We were very apprehensive to let our dog leave us for 4 weeks, and we are so glad we DID!!!  those few weeks had such an impact - they made our lives manageable and have had a lasting impact.  The chaos has been replaced with serenity.

 

I've enclosed some pictures of Mickey and our other dog Bula (who he no longer terrorizes!!).....

 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Dear Carlos,

 

Just need to say thank you so much. Harley has really become a great city dog. He enjoys people, other dogs and animals, no problem with his social life at all. Your obedient training is so great! I am very satisfied with the result. I was not sure if you gave me my dog back. Because, I am also amaze on how he has over come his fear of bikes, motorcycles, trucks and loud noises.  He is wonderful in the house and out. It's so great the way he listens to my commands and walks by me without a leash and I don't have to worry about him running away.  What else can I say? You gave me a new, improved dog that the whole family can love, enjoy and appreciate. You're Wonderful! And again, Thank You

Congratulations on the arrival on your new addition!!!  I look often at your website for new pictures of the baby.  Best Wishes!!!!!

 

I had wanted to send you some pictures of Bruno that we had taken recently.  In some pictures he is with our daughter, Gianna.  He is doing very well!!!!  He is now 100lbs but VERY active and LOVES to go to the park, play ball, and go for long walks.  Bruno is just an amazing dog!!!  We all love him soo much!  He is very protective of Gianna, which we love.  I continue to train him every few days using the techniques that you had shown me in class.  He responds right away!!  Bruno responds very well when I call him and NEVER leaves my side.  I can't tell you enough just how much those classes have helped him and I.  I understand him much more now and he is always eager to please.

 

We are hoping to bring Bruno back for the next level of classes in the near future.  Until then, I will continue to send you pictures of the amazing dog which you have bred.  Take care and give our best to your family!!!

Hi Carlos & Ai:

Here are a few pictures of Reina as she has grown bigger. She loves action. She's a happy puppy, LOVES HER FOOD, and is sociable and intelligent. People stop me on the street to tell me how beautiful she is. She still hasn't figured out why the cats don't act like dogs. She's adjusting very well here, with lots of human and dog friends, and never a speck of a problem in the crate. (She has one in the bedroom, so she sleeps through the night, and one downstairs.) She is a great puppy, and she keeps me very busy!! Thanks for your help in getting her a good start.

Hello Carlos,

 

Just wanted to drop you a line and some pictures of Alice.  Debra and I want to thank you for allowing us to have such a great girl.  She is getting bigger and smarter.  Walks on the leash are great and she absolutly love them.

Her most favorite thing in the world is playing ball.  She just cannot get enough.  Alice is now fine tuning her nose by finding the ball that I hide from her.  She is an absolute pleasure to have. (Now if only she could talk.)

 

Hope all is well in NJ and the coming addition.  Would love to have Alice trained further and I will contact you a bit later.  For now enjoy the pictures and here's to seeing you soon.

Hi Carlos. 
 

Jack Bauer just had his first birthday (10/21/07) and we are so happy with him. 
 

He's our baby - but definitely has the protective instinct. (several of our neighbors are intimidated by his "stare" that won't stop until they are out of site) 

 

Here are a few pictures for your website.
 

Thank you so much for an incredible dog. (Molly the shiba still doesn't care for her "little" brother)

Hello Mr. Rojas.  How are you and the family doing?  This is Carlos.  I just wanted to tell you that Corona is doing very well.  She is so smart, I had a family BBQ at my house, there were a lot of people and children over the house.  I decided to let Corona out of her crate and join us, "because she is part of the family".. Mr. Rojas, everyone and I  were very impressed with her, she behaved very well, what ever I said to her she did right away.  Corona was playing ball with the children.  There ages were between 3 yrs old to 16 yrs of age.  Mr. Rojas, Corona played so gentle with the children, even a 3 year old!!!  We are so happy with her, not only she is gentle with my children, she is also a very good guard dog!!!  No one can come in my house or yard without me letting them.  That's how I like it!!!!Mr. Rojas, Thank you once again for Corona, she is a unbelievable dog.  We love her very much........THANK YOU !!!!

From the moment that I received my Pit Bull pup Kane at six weeks, I knew that he was going to be a hand full. Even at that young age, he had an incredibly dominant personality. He was very outgoing, and would even challenge my older  Pit Bull Ceasar.  The American Pit Bull Terrier is an incredibly misunderstood breed that receives a very bad rap.  When properly trained and socialized, they make incredible loving dogs and are excellent with children.  They can at the same time be very strong willed and a handful if you're not prepared.
 

As little Kane matured, things took a slight turn for the worse one day when I took him to a local dog run for exercise.  I had been trying my best to socialize my guys with other dogs to overcome the dog aggression that can sometimes occur with this breed, and it was going well for months.  That day as little Kane was running around, a man walked into the run with a very big, very aggressive un-neutered male Pit Bull.  Little Kane at the time was about 6 months. He ran up to the other male to say hello and has soon as he tried to sniff him, the other male growled and bit Kane on the face.  At first I was extremely afraid for Kane, because up until that point he had never shown any sign of aggression to anybody or anything.  To my surprise Kane actually snapped, and fought back almost severely hurting the other dog. I grabbed Kane, who had bite marks on his face, and brought him out of the run as the other owner laughed about the whole incident.  Even though the wounds from the bout healed quickly, I would soon find out that the psychological effects took a greater toll.


Kane, a dog that was once completely comfortable around other dogs, would now get into complete defensive mode anytime another dog was in a reasonable distance.  The hackles on his neck and spine would stand up, and he would start growling and snapping. It didn't matter what gender the other animal was, or whether or not they were fixed.  Kane was now in a state of constant fear that he would be attacked again and his mentality was to attack before that could happen.


His dominance issues also manifested in other ways around the house.  It became hard to walk him as he constantly pulled.  He also would charge the door anytime anyone would enter and got into the habit of play nipping any visitors that came over to the house.  While he never drew blood, he would often leave bruises.  Even though my girlfriend and I never feared that he would attack a person, we knew that we needed help getting his issues under control before they escalated to an uncontrollable level.  This is where Carlos came into the picture.
   

I had done extensive research in trying to find the best trainer. For a while I was contemplating doing a local trainer, but the high prices and limited number of sessions gave me doubts.  After searching for weeks I found Carlos' website.  I called the number and talked to him on the phone and he guaranteed results.  Even though my girlfriend and I were a little apprehensive about leaving him for such a long period of time for the Basic Obedience course, we knew that it had to be done.  When we dropped off Kane to Carlos, Carlos promised that his obedience, walking on the leash, and above all self control would improve drastically.  He even said that there was a chance he might be able to help with the dog aggression issues.


Fast forward now to a couple of years later. Kane has completed two rounds of obedience training with Carlos, and we are counting on sending him over for a third.  He iss an incredible trainer and the results have been even more incredible. Kane is very obedient and can walk on and off the leash while constantly heeling. The play biting stopped, and now people feel comfortable coming over to the house. My girlfriend can handle both Kane and my other Pit Bull, who also went to Carlos, on leisurely walks as they do not pull in the slightest. People are amazed.  He also has gotten a lot better as far as his relations with other dogs and does not have his hackles constantly raised like he used to.  I think that the attack on Kane spawned a mentality in him, in which he constantly had to prove himself. He was always constantly challenging us, and didn't know his place within our little pack but all of that has changed.  Carlos has been of the best things to happen to our family. I would highly recommend him to anyone out there who has dog, especially a strong willed breed like the Pit Bull.  The dogs respond to him amazingly and Carlos does a great job of letting the dogs know that he loves them, but at the same time they understand that they must listen and respect.  Thank You Carlos! I look forward to continuing my dogs education with him for years to come.


Sincerely,

Carlos,

 

We are extremely happy with our puppy Otto, which we picked up from you in November at a mere 10 lbs. Happy to report, he just got back from the vet for his shots and check up, he's a whopping 48 pounds, solid like you said he tapers nicely in the hips and can see the ribs. So a fit 48 pounds. He's very aware of what's going on around our daughter, which is why we wanted a German Sheppard and why we chose your facility.

 

Your wife had called a few months ago asking for a "U" name since Otto was from the "U" litter. We have- actually our daughter liked Ulrich, so if you can forward the info to your wife, we would appreciate it.

 

I just have two questions. The first is following up with training. You had mentioned we should start somewhere at the six month level. Other then a couple typical puppy issues (jumping- nipping while playing) he is a dream. Loves to walk daily, plays in the back yard, plays with our daughter who's 26 months and is very alert. He was house broken from day one, and loves to sleep in his kennel. Thanks for the advise of covering the kennel. We had bought a all wire kennel. I covered the kennel with thin press board and he loves the cave effect. Otto will be six months in April and I want to get on your schedule for the training. Watching you train the dogs when we first came to talk to you about a puppy was huge selling point. So if you can let me know when you have availability. My wife is a stay at home mom so really any day(s) during the week or weekend would work. Secondly, we are going to Florida for my wife's mother's 70 birthday on March 19th returning the evening of the 22nd. Is there a bordering facility you would recommend? Or do you border? I hate leaving him for the few days, I just think it would be too much this young to fly and the hotel is not pet friendly. We live in Toms River. I'm not a big fan of boarding, but I would trust you or your recommendation.

 

Thanks again for Otto, I've enclosed a photo for your pleasure.

Hi Carlos,
 
Am very pleased with your training, I took her out with me several times and its really amazing how much she has changed.


You're GREAT trainer there is no doubt about that. I do have something to tell you my little girl is heart broken. She looks sad and cries at time I think she misses her Papa. Here's the picture of both of you.

Hi Carlos,

 

Thanks for all you have done for Nexi and I. Watching the video; I noticed how much you help even during the trial. The little things you do keep the dogs under control and in the proper position. You also take the blame to the judge when it is our fault, like yesterday when you told him you did not have us practice the correct amount of steps. (You told us at least a dozen times) I really appreciate your help and guidance.

 

Gratefully yours,

Dear Carlos and Ai,

 

Words cannot adequately express my sincere thanks and gratitude for all you have done for me and Dante.  Thank you for your love, care and compassion for both of us.  Thank you for taking Dante in to your home and making him part of your family for the past three months.  I believe you love him as much as I do.  Thank you for working with Dante and for giving me back my hope that he can be trained and he can return home to me.  I don’t know what we would have done without you.

 

He has been a little confused in new place full of boxes.  He followed me everywhere in the apartment on Sunday and Monday.  I took him for a little swim to the lake in New Egypt after I had picked him up from your home.  Yesterday very early morning I took him to the huge field by my new place.  There were sprinkles working all over the field.  He went crazy running under water and rolling in the grass – he truly was so happy because he loves water so much.  I am going to work very hard not to fail with Dante.  The worst enemy is my mind.  Thank you again for everything.

 

Love,

Agnes and Dante (New Jersey)

Gemma

 

Hi Carlos.  Happy New Year!  Sorry it has taken so long to write but I've been busy with the baby and work!  

 

I wanted to take a moment to update you on Gemma.  So the first three to four days after training were the best!!  She was extremely obedient.  My daughters were like "Mom, what did Carlos do, give her a lobotomy"  lol... well lets just say the lobotomy wore off !!  

 

She is a puppy and a baby, just like a toddler in fact.  But all kidding aside I have to say what a difference in her devotion and desire to learn and listen to me her master is since obedience training!  The training really made a big difference.  When given the command "easy" she relaxes and settles down. I may have to do it again a minute later, but she is a baby and we constantly have to "train" them. I practice every day with her, walking in circles in the yard, yelling "come, easy and okay".  She responds instantly to the commands. She is much more affectionate with me and the girls.  I can walk her on a leash in peace, she doesn't pull or trip me.  We enjoy our morning walks to the park where we meet up with all our friends.  She will play nicely with the other dogs, but if I say easy and tug that leash, she sits next to me and waits for the come or okay command.  All our park friends comment on how well behaved she is.  I am the proud mother of course.  I brag about her training and while all the other dogs are pulling their owners, barking excessively, Gemma sits quietly at my feet, waiting for me to move and say "come"!  It is great.  She also has no more accidents in the house and the biting is 95% better!    


I read a lot about dogs, what to feed them, how to train and exercise them, etc.  I belong to a few website where people post concerns with their GSD.  I must say only a few comment about feeding raw and how important and healthy it is.  But a lot of message are from owners with health issues and they do not feed raw.  All the raw feeders always comment RAW DIET.  Well that being said I just wanted to comment to you that I have no stomach, poo or poor coat issues with Gemma as I have continued feeding her raw exactly how you instructed.  I couldn't be happier and her also!   She is now a 59.2 lbs and 7 months and 15 days today.   She is beautiful and I love her with all my heart. 

 

As I told you when I first talked with you, I thought about getting a dog for a year before I finally decided.  I researched breeds, puppies vs rescue, breeders and just about everything I could think of before I decided to contact you.  It was faith that the day I called you "you replied I happen to have a female puppy available now that I've decided to sell instead of keep".  I knew from that moment she was suppose to be my dog.  Gemma is a handful, an excited happy puppy that loves me with a devotion and love I've never known from any human being including my own children and parents.  She is a boat load of work and a big hit on my wallet.  That being said, I couldn't be happier to be her "Momma".  She brings me tremendous joy.  When I come home from work there she is waiting for me with that tail wagging.  She gives me kisses and hugs and is never cranky or not filled with love and joy cause "Mommy is home"!  She was the best decision I made and she is my best friend.  


I attached a picture of Gemma at four months taken a few nights after we picked her up from you on October 6th.  Also one at seven months taken last week.  I was hoping you could use it on your website for the X-Litter as their on any of that litter posted on your site. Well also I'm so proud of my girl!

 

Take care and I'll be in touch soon for more training.

Fondly, 

Tina, Gemma and girls!

We owned four (4) Cane Corso Italian Mastiffs through the years and one in particular stands out as a unique specimen of the breed.  Our Bibi – formally known as GCh Black Pearl Bibiana Kissed By An Angel Mar E Sol was a peacock in the show ring and achieved her Grand Championship along with multiple group placements prior to turning 2 years old.  During puppyhood, Bibi was amazingly fearless, intuitive, the most dominant in her litter and captivatingly beautiful.  With that said, as a working dog not being fully worked she had her own set of circumstances.  She did well with puppy kindergarten and boarded for basic obedience with a private trainer.  Yet, her full potential was not reached.

 

Our show handlers mentioned that making the sacrifice to partner up and train Bibi with a true professional would take her to the next level.  They were absolutely CORRECT!  We had several trainers with good credentials access and evaluate her, but one in particular was a MASTER – Mr. Carlos Rojas of ALPHA K9 ACADEMY.   Carlos immediately realized Bibi’s core DNA; what she needed to stay focused, highly motivated and the best path to get there.  Carlos knows DOG, thinks DOG and lives DOG, all day – EVERY DAY!  His career is dedicated 100% to training and breeding canines with quality and integrity – this is not a hobby or part-time venture for him.  The extensive knowledge, broad-based experiences and respect earned from his professional network in the working dog world are equally impressive and admirable. To see him training and working … the man is simply amazing!  There’s no other way to break it down with explanations.

 

We are continuously learning how to interact with Bibi to ensure positive results.  Each day training with her is a successful setup as a result of the excellent skills and patience Carlos has with teaching others. 

Carlos, your passion for what you do is never ending and it shows!  We THANK YOU for your time and care with Bibi.  See you on the field…

 

Sincerely,

Angel and Stacie Pinto
