The owner of Daack Pack Dog Training, Allison Daack CPDT-KA, has been working with and training dogs, along with other species of animals since 2008. In the beginning of her career, Allison was a Kennel Technician working closely with a Veterinarian where she learned all about developmental periods of dogs, handling skills and how to prevent behavior issues.

From there she spent several years working with exotic animals and mentors at numerous wildlife facilities and reserves in California and North Carolina. She did everything from educating the public, rehabilitation and using training/ behavior modification to help animals cope with not being able to be released due to injury or illness.

Allison then had a long career with Petco, where she ended it as a Dog Training Mentor. Not only did she train other dog trainers to be dog trainers, she taught classes and was apart of a cooperate team to help support and update Petco's dog training program. June 1, 2016 Allison founded Daack Pack Dog Training as a way to better support the needs of her clients. Through this company she has been able to provide the community with custom, in-home training to support their specific needs and the needs of their pets.

 Between the beginning of her career and today she has trained and applied behavior modification with everything from vultures, lions, tigers, bears (oh my!), dogs, cats, hawks, etc. Whether you are looking for help dealing with a high-energy dog, dog or people aggression, separation anxiety, inter-species conflicts, leash reactivity, a shy and hesitant dog, confidence building, etc.; Allison would be happy to work with you to find a solution through a customized training plan. 

Allison is a great believer in education for herself, yourself and your dog. Each situation is entirely different, that's why we focus on building a customized training plan based on you and you dog's specific needs and wants. She is able to help with a wide variety of  cases through her vast experience but specializes in dog aggression and prevention. Through dedication, experience, knowledge, skills and passion Allison can help empower you and your dog to a simpler, enriching life together.
