The Heeling Allies Training Program

While in Heeling Allies intensive board and train program, dogs live with a Heeling Allies trainer where they are trained in task performance, and learn to master advanced obedience skills, behave in places of public accommodation (e.g. grocery stores, malls, and restaurants), and therapeutically interact with individuals who have mental impairments. 

Phase II

During an intensive team training program, Heeling Allies Dogs and their handlers learn to work together as a team under the direction of a Heeling Allies trainer.  Intensive team training may be 8-14 days in length depending upon the type of Heeling Allies Dog.
