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.

  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.

Dog Training Elite Charlotte - IACP Member

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!

We found Dog Training Elite Charlotte to be an excellent team to train our daughter’s dog to become a service dog. Our daughter has some learning disabilities and needed a therapy dog to help her cope with some of the challenges she faces. Shawn began our process with an introduction to the program and explained how things would proceed. He conducted the first session and then Angela took over the program. She developed an excellent relationship with our daughter and earned the trust and confidence of our daughter and her dog. Obedience training went very well and prepared Lilly for the next steps of group training and public access training. Any time we had questions, all we had to do was call or send a text and got a response almost immediately. Sharon worked with us on our scheduling of classes and the overall coordination of the program throughout the timeframe to keep things moving smoothly. We could not have asked for them to do anything better. Communications, quality of the program, expertise of the staff, customer service, and focus on success of our daughter’s dog were superb.

I have a 4 year old dog who used to be reactive, pulled on the leash, barked a lot, and was very hesitant towards new people. After day 1 of working with Shawn and DTE her behavior completely shifted. She is now so well behaved, more confident, and more relaxed walking around. DTE has been amazing to work with - they are extremely kind, patient, organized, and very knowledgeable about dog training and what each unique dog need to thrive. I am so thankful for DTE and recommend them to anyone who is looking to better their dogs behavior and their relationship. Thank you DTE!

5 stars just isn’t enough. I have a 10 year old mini Australian shepherd who through the course of her life has picked up horrible habits and aggression through lack of knowledge on my part. After finding out I was pregnant I sought for help and with Shawn and Sharon my prayers were TRULY answered. The professionalism, knowledge and skill set they provided me with has instilled confidence and security in my dog with my family. The gratitude I have for DTE can’t be expressed in words or stars. From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU ❤️- Julia, Justin, Henry, & Jamie 🐾

DTE provides excellent training for pup and human! We are very pleased with our progress. We were having significant problems with him pulling during walks and other manners issues, but in a short time they have helped us take control of his issues. DTE folks are professional, courteous, extremely responsive and always on time! We are looking forward to continuing our group training with them! Highly recommend!!

We inherited a high energy, free spirited Australian Shepherd, that one trainer had suggested they needed to be put down because the dog wasn’t trainable. The dog was very loving, but she went crazy around other dogs and other people and couldn’t be walked on a leash. We knew professional dog training was the only answer, So we searched the reviews online. We stopped at Dog training, elite. The reviews were almost unbelievable. They painted this picture of Shaun being some kind of mystical dog guru. So we hired Shawn to train Darcy. He is not a mystical dog guru. He is a highly competent, professional dog trainer that knows his subject and knows his dogs. Darcy completed the course. And now we have a calm dog that is enjoying not being anxious all the time, going for walks with her family, not freaking out when there are other dogs and other people around. She’s a joy to be with. We have nothing but high praise for Shawn and have already referred him to several Dog owners in our neighborhood. If you need your dog trained, look no further than Dog Training Elite!

Could not recommend DTE enough. We adopted our 80lb dog (Rider) at around two years old and he was extremely reactive on leash. After one session with DTE we saw a complete 180. They gave us the tools, knowledge and confidence that we needed to correct this behavior and after 5 sessions our boy goes off leash on hikes and is no longer reactive on walks! They are also incredible accessible. They answer any and all questions as we have them and genuinely have made us feel so supported as we learn with Rider! They will help you communicate with your dog effectively and make your bond that much stronger. Endless thanks to the wonderful DTE Charlotte team!!!

Shawn and his team completely transformed my out of control golden retriever into a calm puppy who follows my commands. I have 2 small children and when I called Shawn my dog was out of control, it was not a good situation for them. She ran through my house like a tornado. After completing training with Shawn, I feel so in control of my dog finally. I am so thankful for his help. Now we can truly enjoy having our puppy. Shawn never gave up and tailored our training to best fit our dog and family. I highly recommend dog training elite!

I cannot recommend Shawn, Angela and Sharon enough! We’ve had dogs for over 10 years and have gone through at least 15 different trainers before we found them. Hands down they are the absolute best team to help train your dog and it has been a life changing decision! All of our dogs have gone through their program and it has created such a better life for us and our dogs. Not to mention being able to ask questions and attend group classes after the initial classes are over is so valuable!!! You’re never alone and the support they provide is unmatched!!! Truly truly the best decision we made and couldn’t say enough good things about them!!

By far best decision we ever made. We rescued our first dog and he had a lot of anxiety and would not reply to come ever. Thank god for Shawn. Saved his and our life. Now he rocks the place and listens and can walk off leash w easy recall. We also love everything about the group classes and we love the entire family so grateful for them. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Just hired him for our second rescue

After bringing home our newborn baby we realized we needed to start setting boundaries with our first (fur) baby. Within just the first one on one session we saw a huge improvement with our 1.5 year old sheepadoodle. After five sessions, we saw a complete difference. She is still her goofy and sweet self but now she listens when we need her to. I’m so happy we made the choice to have Dog Elite Training help us teach our pup good manners with the obedience training. The only regret we have is that we didn’t do it sooner!

Absolutely loved Shawn and so glad we chose Dog Training Elite. Loved that he was able to come to our house for the training. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patient, but most importantly cared about the dogs and making sure we also had the skills to train them. We saw an immediate difference in their behavior after just 1 lesson. Would highly recommend.
