Initial Consultation         

 Phone:   FREE      /       In-Home:   $75



All training programs begin with an initial consultation and this can be done with a simple phone conversation or if you would prefer, Dave can come to your home to meet you, your family and of course your dog in person. During the consultation, you and Dave will discuss your dog's behaviors, your life-style/home-environment, training goals and expectations as well as all aspects pertaining to the actual training program: daily training schedules, tools used, skills taught, behaviors modified, Dave's availability, follow-up support, pack walks, etc. Dave will of course answer all of your questions.


*In-home evaluations are not required for dogs that are generally "happy-go-lucky" and/or in need of minor to moderate behavior modification for unwanted behaviors. Dogs that have any serious issues with aggression and/or fear are required to have an in-home consultation.

You will receive 4 private one-on-one sessions (up to 2 hours each) with Dave to ensure your dog's behaviors transfer to your home environment.  You will also have LIFE-LONG free access to the monthly Allegiant K9s Pack Walks for on-going support for the life of your dog!

Let the adventures begin and enjoy the journey!

Dave works with a lot of dogs that need behavior modification. Approximately half of his clients are coming to him for help with issues like leash reactivity and dog or human aggression. Not only are these kinds of issues stressful for owners, but they are stressful for the dogs as well. This is a  28- 31 day customized program to give dogs with behavioral issues the skill sets and confidence they need to be calmer, more well-balanced, more trusting and happier dogs overall; while giving owners the proper tools and skill sets in establishing clear communication, structure and leadership. The dogs will of course be learning all the same skill sets as the 3 week program with an emphasis on the behavior modification. The extra time/longer program is needed so Dave can both teach all the obedience commands while working on the behavior modification aspect as well. As with all programs, owners will get one-on-one support with Dave so they can learn how to properly communicate with their dog in various situations & environments. During the initial evaluation, your dog's behaviors will be assessed and Dave will explain training options and what you can expect during and after training. Dave encourages all potential clients in need of help with behavioral issues to read the BLOG on this website: "Severe issues of fear and aggression in dogs... understanding..." as it gives some insight on what to expect with dogs that have serious behavioral issues.
