Off leash dogs in a down stay

      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.

This is a 3 week immersion training program that does it all for you and your dog! Your dog will live with Dave or Anna for 3 weeks while receiving training and play/socialization every day. Owners receive constant updates (pictures and videos) of their dog's progress during it's 3 week journey of training. The program covers all the major skill sets a dog and owner need to be successful in various situations & environments: leash walking/"heeling", off leash walking/"heeling", sit, down, stay, place, come (off leash recall), let's go, break (released from a command), impulse control training, doorway manners, car entry/exit, and "no" to correct any and all unwanted behaviors like jumping, barking, counter-surfing, digging, playing too rough, etc. Dave & Anna only work with 3-4 dogs at a time & dogs are trained 7 days a week, several times throughout the day in various real-world environments for ultimate "proofing" of behaviors, confidence building, & generalization of skill sets. 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! 

Our 3 week program is a "game changer" for owners and their dogs. We "want it all" for our clients and their dogs: From calm behavior in the home, on the walk, at outdoor patio restaurants/ fun off leash adventures of hiking, mtn biking, camping, trail running, games of fetch and everything in between... we want owners to experience all they can with their dog. Our 3 week program (and the on-going support offered) is a solid foundation for owners to start living the life they have imagined they could with their dog. 

*  E Collar, Place bed and Long line are all INLCUDED with the program

*  Minor to moderate behavioral issues can be be addressed with this program as well. Dogs with severe behavioral issues would need to participate in a 4 week program.  The extra week of training costs an additional $500.
