Puppies can begin learning basic commands as young as 8 weeks old. Treat training should be used in moderation until the puppy is 12-14 weeks old at which time advanced puppy training should begin. This is about the time we'll help you choose one of our full obedience training packages and/or service dog training packages.

At Dog Training Elite Colorado Springs, we strongly believe that the key to sustained obedience and training is to empower owners to be an integral part of the training experience.

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.

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!

He is the Best Trainer I have ever met. He is so good with the dogs. He loves everyone as if they are his. He explains every detail on what he is doing and what you need to do very well. I will definitely use them again.

Hayden was our trainer. He came into our home and met with us, he gave us a lot of information and told us the plan. He met with our kids and pets and made the whole situation so much better. Hayden was able to bring my dog and daughter back to having a great relationship. I highly recommend Dog Training Elite. We are so satisfied and love going to the group classes. Our dog is doing so much better and listening so well. Thanks again Hayden we really are grateful for you!

Our 9-month old puppy, Mags, was like a cross between Cujo and the chest-burster from Alien. We were at our wits end, so we sent her off to an obedience school. I won’t go into details about her stay. Suffice it to say, Mags flunked out. At that point we didn’t think anyone could help us. But I wasn’t ready to give up. I Googled everything I could and eventually bumped into Dog Training Elite and called them up. Hayden came to our house to meet Mags the very same evening. He took one look at our little monster and said he could help—and he’s been good to his word. Hayden is wildly knowledgeable and the absolute best at what he does. Mags went from psycho puppy to warm, family dog after the first session. And she’s only gotten better from there. It’s not just Mags who has learned a lot either. My family has always had a mutt and Hayden has taught us more about dogs in the last three weeks than we’ve learned in the last 25 years. He lifted a tremendous amount of stress off our backs and we’ll forever be grateful. Thanks Hayden!

A little over a year ago we rescued a black and white Pitbull named Buster. He was about 8 months old when he was found on the street. He had some serious anxiety and aggression towards other dogs. Hayden Baggs at Dog Training Elite was our trainer. He was very patient with Buster and also helping us learn how to train Buster. Today Buster is a totally different dog. He can be around other dogs without being aggressive and he will even play with other dogs. I would recommend Hayden to anyone who has a dog with issues. He did an amazing transformation with our dog.

Such an amazing group! Our 11 month puppy was jumping on counters and barking nonstop, and they had him doing world’s better after just one session. They really focus on training the dog and the owner while building the dog/human relationship. In addition, they always made sure we felt comfortable with the training during all new tricks. They were very responsive in between sessions if we had any questions or concerns, and you can tell they truly love dogs. We can’t recommend this group enough.

Colleen and her husband run a wonderful, loving dog training business. They are very friendly, knowledgeable and kind. My 5 month old pup is amazing! I get compliments when I take him to stores as he is more well behaved then a lot of the older dogs. I love that they come to you and teach you in your home. They respond well to emails or text with concerns or questions. I recommend using their trainers and methods. Trust the programs and you will have a wonderful dog to love forever! Well worth every penny spent!

Matt and Tyler were a dream to work with and miracle workers with our dog. Extremely professional and diligent in their work. Our in home consult our dog was nipping to where he was nearly pulling my shirt off. He really was showing off all of his behavior issues, where you’re completely embarrassed of their actions. Matt addressed each of the issues and how he could help us, he even had his dog along to show off how well the training is on just a 4 month old pup. After our first session we had an immediate relief, our dogs nipping and barking was noticeably reduced. We get compliments consistently on our dogs behavior. His recall on is name is amazing where we are comfortable to have him off leash, we also love using place when people come to the door. Matt and Tyler made our lives so much easier with their work with our dog. We cannot thank them enough!

The whle staff are great and make the group classes fun. Would like to learn new techniques such as was taught this past weekend to have your dog switch sides while still walking and the dog heeling. Thanks love to learn how to do other fun things like your getting out to us.

We are 100% satisfied with the results of working with DTE Charlotte. Our dog has transformed completely in just 2 short weeks! He has become more confident, happier, and of course more obedient. DTE picked our dog up and worked with him throughout the day. When they dropped him off, they taught us how to continue the training at home. They don’t just train your dog to listen to them. They help your dog learn to trust you and to listen to you. We used to be scared to bring our dog around a stranger’s dog. Now we bring him to breweries and dog parks without hesitation, and he listens to us without thinking twice. We found this program to be the best bang for our buck in the area and we definitely made the best choice. We would absolutely recommend this company to a friend, and we cannot wait to see how our dog continues to progress during the rest of our in-home and group sessions!

We first saw DTE at a home and garden show (when we did not have a dog), we were impressed by the focus and clarity with how the dogs reacted to the trainers. Fast forward almost 4 years and we remembered that encounter and we made the call to DTE for our consult. There are a lot of advertisements for dog training out there, and we interviewed several of them as we searched for who to walk with on our dog training journey. In the end, we went with our first choice, DTE, because these guys are the real deal. We trust DTE with our Heeler's training because they are passionate about what they do. They communicate commands and techniques, educate on behavior patterns, and implement safety measures for everyone in the home. We have fun at the weekend group classes, surrounded by other families who are all working towards the same training goals. A well-trained dog does not happen overnight, we work extremely hard at utilizing the training techniques and tools DTE has been guiding us on over the months and each week we see more and more progress. We would suggest the AZ DTE team to any one of our friends or those serious about dog training. We are so thankful to have them on our side.

The owner and the trainer Neil is an amazing guy. He knows his stuff! His dog training skills and experience are beyond compare and he is super nice and loves what he does.
Group classes are a little bit different and less organized, laid back in my opinion when Neil is not the one doing the class. Too many breaks and the classes are usually cut short. They are supposed to be an hour long but they are not. Suggestion: since the obedience classes are held in a park, trainers should arrive 10 minutes earlier to clean up the area from dog poop so that the owners don't have to watch every step they take and try not to step in it. The trainers do not show much effort to memorize "students'" names, it seems they always only refer to the same dogs because they only know these names.

Our experience with Dog Training Elite has been Amazing! We love working with Hayden. When we started training we were at the end of our rope and were so frustrated, tired and stressed. We read several books and watched a ton of videos on YouTube but nothing really worked. From day 1 we saw major improvement and understood exactly what to do and when to do it. It’s very convenient that the trainer comes to our house to train. Our trainer involved everyone in the family and gave clear expectations and instructions on how to teach every command. We purchased the Gold package and the upgraded to add on service dog training. Our pup loves group classes and always comes home tired and ready for a Saturday morning nap. Hayden has been amazing! I am the kind of person who asks lots of questions and he was always available to answer questions or give advice for how to correct a behavior and give encouragement that we are doing things correctly. Our family highly recommends Dog Training Elite.
