Pulling your pup through the great outdoors on a leash is less than ideal for adventurous pet owners. A well-trained dog should be able to go wherever the adventure takes you: the beach, hiking, long-distance runs. If you are looking for off leash dog training in Baton Rouge & New Orleans, you have come to the right place!

At Dog Training Elite of Baton Rouge & New Orleans, we provide private training sessions. Our trainers focus on your dog's unique issues and encourage you to take part in the process, promoting a strong bond between you and your dog. If you want to take your dog on off-leash adventures, you must establish trust and a strong relationship. Our trainers can help you feel confident in directing your dog.

The dog trainers at Dog Training Elite have developed an award winning off leash dog training program in Baton Rouge & New Orleans.
Key factors that we focus on for off-leash training include:

  • Obedience - Whether your dog is on or off leash shouldn't change his behaviors. We focus on instilling obedience in your dog so that you can feel confident in his ability to listen and remain loyal.
  • Human and Dog to Dog Interaction - You are likely to come into contact with other pet owners during an off-leash walk through the park. Your dog must exhibit proper manners to the people and dogs he or she encounters. We can help eliminate problem behaviors like jumping and licking.
  • Safety Commands: Heel, Stop and "Off" - Off leash walking exposes an untrained pup to dangers, like bolting off into the road while chasing after a squirrel. On or off leash, the "heel" command directs your dog to walk by your side. Other commands, like "stop" and "off" prevent dangerous situations for your dog.
  • Attention & Distraction Control - Squirrels, other dogs, wide open fields perfect for running - there is plenty to distract your dog on a long walk. Off leash adventures require you to have control over these distractions and your dog must be attuned to your commands. Our talented trainers will lead your dog through distraction exercises during training to teach proper attention and obedience.

If you are looking for off leash dog training in Baton Rouge & New Orleans, Dog Training Elite has the best dog trainers for you.

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 20 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.

We help your dog become a valued companion and beloved member of the family. Read what our customers have to say and then give us a call!

Mr Ed was so great with my pit bull Kaira! I chose Dog Training Elite after one trainer told me I had a very vicious dog and needed one on one training that I’d have to leave my baby there! But when Mr Ed came do the home evaluation he said that she didn’t have a vicious bone in her! And she and I have been living a happy life ever since!! Thank you so much!!

We have been stunned by the turn around in our already "great" dog. He is operating as a Super Service Dog for Catherine thanks to you! My daughter struggles with mobility and our big 200lb Great Dane does a great job of leading and holding her up but wasn't so good at "following her lead." You have helped her as well with a confident commanding process that was possible for her to master. From our family to yours, thank you Dog Training Elite!

It has been an amazing experience working with Dog Training Elite! Claire and Ed were both so helpful in training my dog and me. :) Any question I had they were able to answer for me. Helpful hints for car rides, recommendations for groomers, understanding behavior changes during teething, getting our puppy to stop jumping on guests and the list goes on. When we started training, our 11 year old daughter was afraid of our puppy when he started jumping, barking and biting. Now she feels completely comfortable with our puppy. Our golden doodle puppy went from out of control jumping and biting to such a fun and obedient puppy to be around. Thank you so much Dog Training Elite!

Between the E-collar and the trainers coming out to us, I couldn't recommend them more. The difference between my dog's behavior before and after the training sessions is like night and day. He's like a whole new dog and I couldn't be happier.

I have been working with Dog Training Elite with my 2 year old mini Australian Shepherd for about 2 months now. We love all the trainers we have met Ed, Claire and Jacob! I have really seen great changes in my dog Ellie! Each trainer takes their time to explain and all work really well with my dog to make sure she’s as comfortable during our training sessions! Group classes are fun to meet other people and their dogs!! Would 10/10 recommend them! Looking forward to more training!

I have been working with Ed and Claire for a few weeks now, and I'm impressed! I've worked with several trainers recently, and Dog Training Elite has been the most helpful in my current situations with my Doberman. I appreciate the fact that they don't train "by the book" and believe that training is based on each individual dog. I have been dealing with a few issues with my Doberman puppy and they have been able to observe and find the best working solutions to assist with those issues. I also enjoy the group classes each Saturday to work on distractions. It's really been great for my boy! One recent victory that Claire helped me with was getting my pup to allow me to put a vest on him! She made that happen in 1 hour during our session at home!

All the trainers at Dog Training Elite are amazing!! Our Labradoodle received some training from another group, but we still struggled with particular behaviors/situations. After making the switch to Dog Training Elite and the e-collar, our dog has soared! We are so thankful for Ed and his team!

I have nothing but good things to say about Dog Training Elite (Southeast Louisiana). I have an 80 pound, 2 year old Boxer Pit bull mix who was extremely hard to walk. He used to get triggered by everything when I would walk him and the triggers often lead to him pulling me down as he would suddenly dart towards the trigger. I dreaded walking him. I was very afraid that he would get us seriously hurt or, God forbid, hurt someone else or another dog. But the training we have received has been a literal life saver. I can now walk him peacefully and can give him commands like “Sit” and “Come” and he not only responds, but holds the command until I release him to continue. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these trainers to any dog owner!!! They are professional, kind, knowledgeable, and their love for dogs is evident in everything they do. I truly can’t say enough good things!!

First off, Amazing. Second, AMAZING. There website is so easy to navigate and doesn’t make you put in a bunch of info for an estimate. They lay out their prices with an explanation of services provided!!! They also do a FREE consult where a real human comes to your house and talks to you about what you’re wanting and sees your dogs! Claire has been working with my golden, Zoe, and I absolutely adore her (the human 🤪). She is the sweetest, most kind person. She is always on time, and she is so accommodating. I love the way she explains everything to me before the session - from the intended lesson to how to go about the commands. She’s very hands on and does an amazing job at answering any questions I have. If she doesn’t know an answer, she immediately seeks a response. Zoe is doing so well with the training, it’s just up to me to continue to training in between sessions! I couldn’t be happier with Claire!! Also, I sought out additional training for my other golden, Piper, to become a therapy dog - another trainer came out during one of Zoe’s training sessions and worked with Piper to see if she would be a good fit. No additional charge - and she stayed the whole training session. It was awesome! Thank y’all so much ❤️❤️❤️

When we first contacted Betsy we were at our wits end. Our 8 year old pup Marley was starting to be aggressive with our 1 year old baby girl. It didn’t matter how many walks or attention we gave him, he did not want to share his parents with his new sister. The idea of having people or other kids at our house was extremely stressful because we knew how bad Marley would be with them. This included: eating shoes/socks/stuffed animals. Grabbing food off the table, and aggressively snapping at anyone who tried to take away those items. He would constantly bark at and jump on guests, and completely ignore our commands. Betsy and Audra came for our initial visit/evaluation. They were extremely knowledgable and professional and knew they could help. That same visit Marley tried to attack Betsy when she was putting the leash on him. Without hesitation Betsy was able to put him in a position that causes an aggressive dog to calm down, it’s called a “calming stop”. We noticed a huge difference in his demeanor immediately. After only a couple of sessions even our friends noticed a huge difference. He is less anxious, listens to commands and gets along with our little girl. We were so stressed and worried about not being able to keep Marley with our new baby and Betsey, Audra, Ed and Claire really saved our family. We are forever grateful to them and recommend them to anybody who thinks they’re dog is “untrainable”

There really are no words to describe the impact Claire has had on our dog. Due to her compassion and intelligence, she has completely changed the atmosphere in our home and our lives. It has been such a pleasure to know her and the team at Dog Training Elite Southeast Louisiana.

The very best staff and trainers! They truly care about the success and services they can provide for your service dog and family. As an autism mom this experience has been amazing we couldn’t have asked for better support from this team. We look forward to continuing the journey with them by our side!

Mr Ed is a wonderful teacher! Not only did he teach my dog certain commands, he also taught me how to work with her!!! I thought I was never going to be able to control the almost 2 year old pit that I got from the shelter to be my ESA. I went from trying to get her to sit, (and it didn’t work), to having a very obedient pit bull; with Mr. Ed’s guidance!

I could not have asked for a better team than these guys!!!! My Siberian Husky Dakota and I started a journey of searching for a service dog trainer at the beginning of the year. I prayed day and night to find the right fit for us. A lot of trainers out there are not very friendly, professional and down right abusive. Ed, Betsy and especially Claire (our Claire Bear) have taught us invaluable skills and techniques I could have never accomplished alone. Dakota is absolutely flourishing everyday into a truly remarkable service dog. She loves to “work” and just as important as her training is, Ed and Claire have been so patient and graciously taught me the skills I need to train MYSELF and that’s where the true treasure was they helped me successfully find. My team is exceptionally professional. But more importantly to me, they have been the LOVE, RESPECT, CHARACTER, TEACHERS, and CONFIDENCE that Dakota and I needed on our journey. Positive Reinforcement is exactly that…..positive reinforcement. We are so blessed to have found Dog Training Elite!!!! Our lives have truly changed because of the pure heart and soul and dream of Ed and Betsy and their incredible staff. We love you so much we truly do!!!!

Ed and Betsy are phenomenal trainers! My yellow lab, Ruger, is 6 months old. He was jumping on people all the time, not listening to commands, and running off when off his lease, just to name a few issues. Ed and Betsy taught me everything I needed to know to train Ruger. They even took time checking in on Ruger during the week and they answered any questions I had immediately. By the end of my training sessions, Ruger was following commands, staying be your side when off the lease and no longer jumping on people. He has come a long way! I can’t thank Dog Training Elite enough! They are beyond AMAZING and I highly recommend Ed and Betsy to help train your 4 legged fur baby! Thanks a Million!

I could not recommend training with Ed and his team enough! I tried many different avenues to train my toy poodle Frankie and their methods are the only that have truly stuck and worked for him. All of the team are really welcoming as well :-)
