Behavioral Training in Dogs in Atlanta

Is your dog chewing things? Peeing indoors? Does your dog reactively bark and have a hard time calming down? If you said yes to any of these questions, your dog needs behavior training, and is here to help. Request a free in–home evaluation and get started today!

The professionals at Dog Training Elite have years of experience with correcting unwanted behaviors in dogs and are well–equipped to handle any problems your dog might be causing at home. We can address and correct things like:

  • Biting
  • Digging up the yard
  • Not coming when called
  • Peeing indoors
  • Chewing household items
  • Leash pulling
  • Barking
  • Jumping
  • Anxiety and Aggression

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.


Dog Training Elite in Atlanta is the top company near you that uses professional positive dog training methods.

Types of Dog Training Programs


There are many types of dog training programs used to create different outcomes. Some of the dog training programs you’ll find at Dog Training Elite include:

  • Obedience Training: This teaches your dog new verbal commands and skills like sit, stay, heel, come, and more. While obedience training is most commonly taught to puppies, dogs of any age can benefit from obedience training.
  • Behavior Training: This addresses and corrects specific problems a dog has. This training can be for anything from housetraining problems to anxiety and aggression.
  • Service Training: This training helps dogs learn to perform tasks and become companions for individuals with special needs or a disability. Service training requires a highly intelligent and obedient dog.
  • Therapy Training: Therapy dogs provide comfort and calmness in people’s lives. Outside of the home, they are utilized in hospitals, nursing homes, and even schools.
  • Personal Protection Training: This teaches a dog to protect its owner and to attack on command. You can train your dog to protect your family in many situations.

Understanding what type of training program you and your dog need will allow the professional dog trainers at to help you and your dog in the best way possible.

Behavior Correcting Techniques


There are many techniques for behavior training. Here at Dog Training Elite, we employ positive reinforcement. With a positive training method, we focus on only giving positive feedback through treats or praise when your dog performs a correct behavior or task. We never use shock collars, negative feedback or other forms of punishment when training. Here are a few more techniques we use in addition to positive reinforcement.

  • Clicker training: When your dog performs the desired task or behavior, we use a device to make a small click sound, signaling your dog that it did the right thing. They are also then rewarded with a treat.
  • E–collar: At Dog Training Elite, we often use electronic collars, which are very different from shock collars. A shock collar sends an uncomfortable shock to your dog when they are behaving incorrectly and is used as a punishment. An E–collar sends a gentle vibration to get your dog's attention and refocus them on the task. It is never used as a punishment and does not hurt the dog.
  • Model training: This training involves using a model dog within a group. The trainer will work with the model dog to show the other dogs the correct behavior. The model dog will get praise and rewarded for performing. Since dogs often learn by observation, your dog will see this and attempt the correct behavior.
  • Relationship–based training: This technique strengthens the bond between dog and owner. A strong and deep connection with your furry friend will encourage obedience and help training happen more smoothly and faster.

Needed some training for my 2 year old Golden Retriever and was sitting in traffic when I saw DTEWest Atlanta car and decided to give them a call! One of the best decisions I have ever made. I had called around a few places and their offer was the best for what I needed. They also offer a variety of packages which I loved. The team at Dog Training Elite West Atlanta is simply amazing! Whit, Kyla & CJ are true professionals and it shows that they love what they do. Extremely patient & kind especially to my sweet pup! They felt like family. We had in home training sessions and they were so much fun. I looked forward to seeing them every single time and so did my doggo! They were always on time and communicated transparently. I now have a pup who is well trained. The walks have been 1000 times better, no more pulling and dragging and recall is great! My pup now knows how to behave when I have guests in my home. My pup also does commands off leash which I am most excited about. 10/10 recommend DTE West Atlanta! Just amazing.

Whit and his team Cam and Kyla have been a godsend! My husband and I fell in love with our, at the time 3 month old, American Akita while we were vacationing in Florida. We couldn’t wait to get him back home but with my husband starting a new job and already having our hands full with 5 and 6-year-old boys, I already knew that I was going to need help with Yoshi. I personally shopped around for different companies and found Dog Training Elite online. My husband and I had reservations in the beginning of course as with anything new, but let me tell you we are definitely pleased with the process so far. Whit advised that I would see a difference after the second appointment but he was wrong… LOL!! I saw a difference after the very first! Every appointment weekly I feel closer and closer to Yoshi! Cam and Kyla are family and they not only put my nerves at ease but they are knowledgeable, professional and complete sweethearts. Yoshi’s breed is known for their stubbornness but when it’s time for training even he looks forward to Cam and Kyla’s visit because he himself can’t resist their gentle and loving nature. If you are looking for results, then Dog Training Elite West Atlanta is the place!!!
