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

Ollie is a 16# Terrier Mix we adopted from a local rescue 2 years ago. He came to us with serious problems- wild eyes(wouldn’t make eye contact), repetitive behaviors (running for hours in patterns, chasing lights and shadows), extreme fear and anxiety over separation, loud noises, car rides etc. We watched training videos, read books on dog behavior, had 4 sessions with a prior trainer, spent hours playing interactive dog toys, rocking him to calm him down and trying to provide a peaceful, safe environment. It felt like we had a special needs dog and indeed he had most of the characteristics of Canine Compulsive Disorder. We worried constantly. Medication from the vet, calming chews, and working with him over time helped to some degree, but we couldn’t seem to get past his episodes of extreme anxiety which would override any progress. Then along came Ed and Betsy and staff of DTE. Despite Ollie’s problems, they were certain they could help. The changes in him are unbelievable! He is calmer, happier, and more trusting. Though we are continuing to work with him, Ollie’s repetitive behaviors are rare and he actually rode in the car without shrieking and jumping hysterically. Although Ollie is still a work in progress, DTE has been a God send and has given us a sweet boy that we can actually enjoy. The Dog Training Elite team have been professional, friendly, supportive, knowledgeable, and only want the best outcome for the dog and the owner and we are so appreciative. Thank you Dog Training Elite.

Ed and Betsy are great to work with. They are hardworking and determined dog training specialists. I believe their long, varied experience is a big factor in their overall effectiveness. It is amazing to watch them direct the dogs and simultaneously instruct others on what they are doing. I have watched them get my dog to do new things in minutes. They are truly amazing. I don’t think there is anyone else in Louisiana that can get the results they do.

I can say with 100% confidence that Betsy and dog training elite are the best dog trainers around. I witnessed 180 degree transition of a hyper lab to a service dog in training. The lab is fully obedient and maintained his loving personality. I’ve asked DTE of southeast louisiana to train my 13 lb anxious 3 yr old as a result. They are the best! More to come!

I can not recommend Dog Training Elite Baton Rouge enough! Ed and Betsy are prompt, professional, knowledgeable and I would use them for training again in a heartbeat. The entire experience has exceeded expectations from initial training inquiries to strategies moving forward. I would recommend DTE BR to anybody looking for reliable, convenient training.

The owners are phenomenal! Not only do they love dogs, which means so much, but they are excellent at what they do! They have helped re-train my older dog and I never thought that was possible! Not to mention their dogs are the epitome of what a wonderfully trained pup would exemplify. I appreciate their dedication and love of our furry family members and after getting to know them through this process- not only are they great at what they do but they are smart, caring, and all around incredible people! I think they have done an amazing job and you can't go wrong with picking Dog Training Elite in SE Louisiana and the Baton Rouge area! Thank you Ed and Betsey, you are true gems!
