Dog Training Elite New Haven believes so strongly in the healing power of service dogs for retired military veterans that we have created "The Malinois Foundation". We donate our time and passion to veteran service dog training Connecticut for the foundation.

Service dogs can help ease both mental and physical impairments attained through a veteran’s service to our country. Many veterans suffer from PTSD, physical disabilities, and a variety of other handicaps and service dogs have been proven to lessen symptoms and assist in integrating veterans back into normal routines as much as possible.

Dog Training Elite is proud to partner with The Malinois Foundation to help with training service dogs for retired military veterans in Connecticut.

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.

Dog Training Elite is amazing. My at-home training here in Branford was invaluable. It helped my dog Poppy understand and know what was allowed and what wasn’t and why. It has taught social skills and how to be a good dog in various, and sometimes, uncomfortable situations. The e-collar I use, is a wonderful tool and Poppy is happier now than before training. It has been worth every dollar. Highly recommend.

Dog Training Elite is the absolute best. It has been a wonderful experience from the very start. Our trainer, Jason, was incredibly knowledgeable and willing to help with anything we needed here in Branford. In just a few months, we've seen a major transformation with our rambunctious 2-year old Aussie, Vita. By using the e-collar provided, training went way faster than expected, just by using it to get Vitas attention. Amazing!! It A big thanks to everyone at Dog Training Elite. We are so appreciative and happy we sought out help from this organization
