Rodrigo Flores is the Manager and Head Obedience Trainer at Alpha K-9 and has been since 2001 and is in charge of all operations in Randy's absence. A super trainer with an exceptional work ethic and a way with dogs that can be described only as a gift.
Lucy Newton Lucy Newton recently came to Alpha K-9 with more than 20 years of experience training dogs. She was involved in search and rescue for over 15 years, training numerous personal dogs for wilderness search and rescue as well as land and water human remains detection. She has deployed for hundreds of missing person cases in both urban as well as remote wilderness locations. She has also provided training to hundreds of search and rescue dog handlers and their canines. Lucy also worked for over 10 years as a fulltime police sargeant and police canine handler and handled multiple dual purpose patrol/narcotics dogs fulltime for her police department. All of her police and SAR dogs were raised by her from puppies and trained by her. Lucy was also a state certified police canine training instructor and served as a field training officer for her department. Lucy has received awards for life saving finds made by her working dogs, they have also had successful finds in human remains detection, evidence recovery and narcotics detection.
Lucy also offered private coaching to sport dog handlers, specializing in helping handlers develop techniques to better communicate with their dogs and to teach them skills in a more effective manner. She has taught training clinics throughout the United States and Canada – specializing in helping people build and channel drive and motivation in their sport or working dog. She has also conducted many tracking clinics, working with beginner to advance tracking enthusiasts. All of her training clinics have been at the request of the groups hosting her, rather than through any marketing efforts of hers.
Lucy’s years of teaching and working with dog handlers, both civilian and law enforcement, makes her an experienced skilled teacher and communicator as well as dog trainer. Like Randy, Lucy is always attempting to further develop her training and teaching skills. Lucy has attended many training seminars and clinics and each one has added to her skills as a dog trainer. While still working as a police K9 handler Lucy attended one of Randy’s School for Detection Dog Trainers. Since then she has assisted Randy in teaching numerous schools and upon the development of the Professional School for Dog Trainers, has come to work for Randy full time as an instructor and trainer.
