Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.


  • Empowering Owners
    We empower owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
  • Personalized
    We deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
  • Environment Specific
    We train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
  • Supportive
    We support owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
  • Involved
    We work with all members of the household.
  • Simplified & Customized
    We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training
    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

Went on vacation and came home to a completely different dog! Shawn and the trainers transformed Reese (a stubborn little guy with small dog syndrome) into a very obedient pup! We highly recommend them and even have to a few neighbors with new puppies. Thank you to all the trainers again!

We are super happy with bringing on the professionals at Elite. With their educate, training, guidance and support we feel success with our Border Collie who has a reactive history. Elite has trained us to train him, now not only do we have confidence so does our Border Collie. They were even able to work with our Border Collie and give him touchable praise, impressive considering his past. Positive reinforcement and praise is stressed and is key. Coming to the home has been a great benefit. Looking forward to the park groups. Highly recommend Elite!!

I was at the end of my rope with my new puppy. She was getting more and more aggressive, potty training was a joke, jumping, biting. I called DTE on a Sunday and left a message. They called me back the next day. They could tell my family and I was frustrated. They were so busy that week but they fit my dog into their schedule anyway. My family and I are truly grateful! Our puppy seemed like a different dog once we picked her up! I was shocked! DTE gave us the tools to continue training at home with confidence. The foundation that DTE set for us is amazing!

I made the decision to come to Dog Training Elite for my behavior and service dog training due to the reviews, and I'm so incredibly glad I did. The staff at this facility are true dog lovers, and true trainers. They were communicative and always understanding of financial needs, and not only were they extremely professional, but they also just... LOVED my dog. We worked with Evan (with guest appearances from Jeff), and it was always super exciting for Zuko to see Evan come in ready to put him to work. It was never a chore for him to work my Zuko through his problems, and he was patient, engaging, always responsive if we had any questions, and knew what he was talking about. The transformation that I've seen in Zuko in just a few months is astonishing. I rescued him from abandonment and he was excitable, headstrong, and had crippling separation anxiety. I spent months working him alone using videos, Petco training, training books, etc., and only managed basic obedience when we were alone, but he would ignore me around people/other animals. What drove us to get a trainer was when we adopted a cat and after 3 months, we could not get them to be in the same room together because of his excitability. Once we started working with Evan, it was a complete shock to see a shift in the behavior. Within a week after his first private session, he was off-leash with the cat while we were on our computers. I hear people often say that it's like they're a different dog, but that isn't the case here. Zuko is still my sweet, excitable, chatty boy, but he's MORE than that now, because he has an appropriate outlet for his sharp brain. And Evan helps me understand so much of his behavior that I used to disregard or excuse. Our relationship as dog/owner is stronger, he trusts me more, and I feel confident putting him in unexpected situations because I know that we've both developed the skillset to work through any trouble together. Our next step is group classes and Psychiatric Support Dog training, and seeing how excited Zuko is to work, and how excited Evan is to teach him, makes me confident that we definitely made the right choice in trainer. Please use these trainers for your needs! You will not regret it.

I cannot express enough how GREAT this training has been for my pup, Tito and me. This is my first pup and thanks to Jeff Slack, I am working toward the best dog ever. She gets so excited to see him even though she is going to be worked. :) He is so patient and helps me understand the why behind everything we are doing. I took her on the first camping trip and thanks to Jeff, she was able to be off leash the whole trip and LOVED it. I have to admit I am very happy we got Jeff for every in house training!!! Thank you Jeff for being AMAZING!!!! I would 100% recommend him and Dog Training elite.

Ashely has been great with my dog. I have seen a big improvement with his obedience especially with recall and reactivity towards other dogs.

My wife and I are being stationed Belgium and I was afraid one of our pups wouldn’t be able to go due to his aggression and nervousness, until I found DTE and started working with David, he is a great trainer. So many trainers tell you there’s just no hope but not these guys. Our dog has really made a turn around and the more we work with him the better it gets and gives us more and more hope for our pup coming with us!! They are quick to get back to you with any questions or concerns you may have and scheduling is such a breeze, the group classes alone are beyond helpful.

I enjoyed the work they were able to do with both myself and my dog. Throughout the training I got to see many different trainers but received the same training for each specific course. They were capable to turn my life and my dogs around. They built up the confidence is both of us and showed the world that we are able to be in control. Each lesson was thought out and properly prepared to best teach both of us what we needed to be successful. I continue to look forward to our ongoing lessons and those who have helped us(Ashley, Neal,John,Aspen, Dani and their whole communication team)!

Couldn’t be happier with the folks at DTE! Our puppy attended a puppy training camp before she came home to us. We received updates with pictures and videos every day! She came home and was potty trained and crate trained!! Thanks so much!!

Our goldendoodle Rosie was a very anxious and nervous dog before her training. After only 2 weeks she is more social and obedient than ever! Tanya has done an absolutely amazing job with Rosie and explaining to us in detail her training and how to execute it properly! Amazing!!

Every one there, literally everyone is amazing. All of the trainers are awesome and super friendly. They show that they are genuinely interested in asking your dog a more well rounded pet. I just finished the 6 week puppy course and my pup is doing so great. I can't say enough about how amazing this group of trainers are. Ashley stood out as super energetic and super friendly. She came to do the evaluation on my dog and demonstrated what we could hope to expect with her dog. All at my home. And she was involved in every class. Aspen was awesome also. Everyone was great I just can't remember all of their names. But Ashley and Aspen stood out. Thank you guys so much for helping me train my pup. Can't wait to go on to the more advanced classes.

Evan is fantastic! We have a VERY stubborn pup and Evan helped us so much-especially with teaching him to heal. The training is logical and easy to practice with your pup. Highly recommend.

Doing our training with DTE has been fantastic! We got Murphy started at the tender age of 14 weeks, and I was a little nervous to get him started so young, but after I met with our eventual trainer Evan, all my fears and concerns were washed away. He demonstrated what the finished product looks like with his personal dog. Seeing his demeanor and how he interacts with the dogs and seeing his pure love and passion, really showed me that these guys know what they’re doing and are doing it for the right reasons! The base course has made Murphy such a well behaved dog, and I plan on doing the Service Dog training with DTE as well! 10/10 would recommend!

The staff at Dog Training Elite was amazing. They truly understand dogs and tailor training to your dog’s individual needs. Our puppy wouldn’t stop biting, no matter what we did and was quickly becoming more aggressive. After puppy camp at Dog Training Elite I can honestly say it’s not a problem any more. Now and then she will forget, but now we know how to correct her and she responds positively. She also got started with the basic commands of sit, down and come. I highly recommend Dog Training Elite. We look forward to Obedience Training which will start in about a month.

Our sweet Teddy girl was a good puppy, but we wanted a dog that listened to us. We dropped off our baby girl at their training camp and picked up a well behaved puppy. The change in her was very noticeable even to others. We had a graduation party for my daughter with lots of people including kids and she did great. She listened to us and didn't bother others. Teddy loves Tanya her trainer and Tanya became family to us. She was so good to Teddy. We highly recommend taking your puppy and getting them trained here. We're so happy that our puppy was able to learn with them.

For 7 months we have been working with this professional team. Whether it is in our 1 on 1 in-home sessions with Neal or our Saturday morning group training classes, the level of dog training we have received has been fantastic and so helpful. Ashley, in particular, has spent a lot of time before and after class putting in EXTRA effort to gain our very unsocial Blue heeler puppy's trust! This has been a huge win for all of us! Every week is another step forward, we would recommend DTE to anyone looking for serious dog training.They have an excellent crew to get any pup going in the right ditection!
