Kayla really is a superb dog trainer who sencerly loves the dogs and the work. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for quality training.

The talent and patience of Christina is amazing. Not only does she teach the dogs but gives the owners the tools and guidance to work with. She took our scared little rescue Stitch and and taught him to trust and respond to people and animals alike. I would highly recommend her for any training problems and she is also such a caring person who makes you feel like a new friend

Certificate of Excellence
Offering Professional Dog training in Basic & Advanced Obedience, Behavior Modification, Group Classes, PTSD / Therapy, Personal Protection, Bite Work Development, IPO/Schutzhund & also the option of Boarding or Board & Train.
Alpha & Omega Working Dogs came into being 12 years ago. It was a natural process, borne from our founder's love for dogs, as well as his incredible affinity with them.
Our Founder Sergeant Ray Harris is an 8-year Veteran with the Delaware State Department of Corrections. His career in law enforcement regularly exposed him to working dogs, and he discovered a passion for breeding, training, and competing. He is a member of Schutzhund USA, the premier club for German Shepherd trainers, as well as The National Working Dog Association.
Competitions: Ray has been competing since 2005, and has won awards in K9 sports up and down the east coast. In 2015, he became a certified decoy for Schutzhund, allowing him to decoy for club trials across the USA. He has performed in that capacity in seven states and counting.
Police Dogs: As of 2017, Ray has also expanded into developing Police K-9 units with several local Law Enforcement entities. He became a member of the USPCA to help police working dogs certify and compete in K-9 trials regionally.
Other Work: Alpha & Omega Working Dogs also trains non-working dogs. See our Services section for more details on our obedience, behavior modification, boarding, and personal protection programs.
Keep Moving Forward: In the future, Ray intends to represent the United States in working dog competitions internationally, to further develop and refine his work with K-9, and to expand into other working dog areas. To that end, Alpha & Omega staff are all involved in ongoing education and training programs to better serve our furry friends and their humans.
