Trying to teach disobedient dogs even the most basic commands can be extremely frustrating. Unless you have the patience, time and knowledge necessary, turning your pup into a loyal, obedient pet may seem nearly impossible. Frustration with your dog's disobedience can also hinder your relationship as it may cause you to yell at or become upset with your pet. So if you find yourself wondering how to teach your dog basic commands and desperately searching for professional dog training in Davis / Weber County, Dog Training Elite has the program you need!

Dog Elite Training provides professional dog obedience training services. Our training technique method is based on positive reinforcement and classical training. Through a combination of commands and an electronic collar, your k9 will learn to follow your commands at once. The electronic collar is not a shock collar; it is a gentle electronic pulse, similar to the tug of a leash, used to get your dog’s attention. Other dog trainers use harsh static collars or spray collars which have been shown to be less effective. Dog Training Elite solely focuses on positive behavior reinforcement in order to nurture your dog’s natural obedient nature.

Dog Training Elite offers award winning professional dog obedience training near you in Davis / Weber County.

Basic Obedience Training With Dog Training Elite Northern Utah


New dog owners may be surprised to learn that training should begin as soon as possible. The younger you start teaching your puppy, the faster he will learn. While puppies may not be able to comprehend complex commands, basic obedience taught early on transforms your dog into a well-behaved and loyal pet. At Dog Training Elite Northern Utah, we have a specialized dog obedience training course for both puppies and older dogs. While starting young is optimal, it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks!

Our professional dog trainers offer the best k9 training services. We understand that each and every dog is unique. When meeting with your k9, we will observe his breed, size, temperament, and any other factors that will influence training. By working directly with you and your dog within your home, our trainers can develop a personalized training plan for your k9. Through simple, in-home training sessions, your k9 will learn simple commands like: sit, stay, lay, come, heel, and place. Once your k9 has acquired these basic commands, we can introduce group classes for more in-depth training.

Our obedience program covers the following basic commands:


  • Sit - The "sit" command is simple and sets the foundation for all other commands. Once your dog comprehends this command, others will follow easily.
  • Come - This command teaches puppies to listen to you and can ensure safety. A puppy that comes when called will stay close to home and out of trouble.
  • Stay - A lesson in self control, the "stay" command may be tricky for some overzealous puppies. With the assistance of a professional trainer from Dog Training Elite, however, your puppy will catch on quick.
  • Drop It - This command allows you to keep your pet safe from danger. Puppies are curious and tend to explore with their mouths - "drop it" ensures they don't swallow anything poisonous or chew anything of value.

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.

Why Is My Dog So Bad? - Common Behaviors of Untrained Dogs

Training a new dog takes a lot of time and effort but the payoff is well worth it. Every pet owner wants a dog that is loyal, friendly, and well behaved. Unfortunately, some dogs require more training than others. Due to breed type, past trauma, or just plain stubbornness, some dogs can be quite difficult to train. Don't let frustration get in the way of your training program. With the professional dog trainers in Davis / Weber County of Dog Training Elite, you can have the loyal and obedient pet you dream of.

While each dog is unique and has its own obedience issues, there are a few behaviors that are typical of most poorly trained dogs:

Chewing

Shoes, socks, furniture - anything your dog can get his paws on is likely to become his favorite chew toy. If you do catch your dog chewing, don't scold him. Just take away the object and replace it with an approved chew toy or bone.

Whining or Barking

The best way to eliminate whining / barking behavior is by ignoring it. Only engage your dog when he is quiet and composed and he will soon learn that barking or whining gets him nowhere.

Jumping for Greeting

Jumping up is a natural way to greet for dogs, but for humans it can be scary and unwanted. If your dog jumps up to greet you, turn away and ignore him. Only say hello or pet him when he has all four paws on the ground.

Begging for Food

Even the best trained dogs are susceptible to begging behavior. The best way to eliminate this behavior is to never feed your dog from the table.

With basic training principles, most of these typical behaviors can be quickly eliminated. If you have a dog that's stubborn, it will take more time and effort. If you don't have time to devote to training, it's best to hire a professional dog trainer in Davis / Weber County. Dog Training Elite's most popular training program focuses on these specific obedience issues. For dog obedience training in Davis / Weber County , we are the local professionals you can count on. We use classical conditioning and positive reinforcement for the best results. Even the "worst" dogs don't stand a chance against our training program.

Dog Training Elite is the best training program that I have done. My dog has learned so much and still going to learn through the training. While he has learned a lot, it has been a great training for me and my other family members. The trainers stress the importance of practice and I am telling you that practice is the key. Many people whether in the neighborhood or at my work are impressed by how well behaved my dog is is many situations. I would highly recommend this training to everyone who is looking for great training. It is well worth the money you pay.

We are super happy with bringing on the professionals at Elite. With their educate, training, guidance and support we feel success with our Border Collie who has a reactive history. Elite has trained us to train him, now not only do we have confidence so does our Border Collie. They were even able to work with our Border Collie and give him touchable praise, impressive considering his past. Positive reinforcement and praise is stressed and is key. Coming to the home has been a great benefit. Looking forward to the park groups. Highly recommend Elite!!

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!

Colleen and Dan of dog training elite northern Utah are excellent dog trainers. My Rottweiler puppy Schatzi was difficult and with a lot of attention deficit disorder. The very first training class Colleen taught Schatzi “off” and got her to stop ankle biting and chewing on things she shouldn’t chew on- it was like a “magic bullet”. Also what is great is they taught me how to train Schatzi so that I can keep sharpening Schatzi’s skills. Schatzi is now 7 months old and I can walk her without a leash and she responds totally to voice commands. I can point to her bed and she will go lie down. If you want to get the most out of your dog and have lots of fun doing it, I highly recommend using Colleen and Dan of “Dog Training Elite Northern Utah” Sincerely, Alec Harwin

We simply cannot say enough good things about Colleen and Dan!! We enlisted Dog Training Elite for our puppies Charlie (a Cockapoo ~8 months old - who was a major terror before) and his little sister Belle (a Bernedoodle ~4 months completely untrained and getting bigger by the day) We were absolutely blown away by the dog they brought to our house for the demo - we immediately signed up, and were not disappointed!! Colleen showed up for the first at home lesson and blew our mind. She was beyond patient - and Charlie was so disobedient one day we didn’t get through the entire lesson for both dogs and she offered to come back an extra time. (Side note: Colleen did not give up - she did get Charlie to obey the commend “Place” and he was rockstar after!!) We met her husband Dan for the first time at the park class (after the 5 at home lessons), and his passion for, and ability, with dogs is unmatched (Dog Whisperer 2…but really - Cesar Milan anyone?!) He even got my puppy Charlie to sit on a stool in the snow, which we thought was IMPOSSIBLE!! And he got Belle to walk onto the jungle gym and go down the slide (UNREAL!) Not only did they train our dogs but they also took the time to train us, which was probably even more difficult. Also important to note the park class was a phenomenal way to meet other dog owners and build a community and friends. If the above wasn’t enough, we wanted to see our family in HI for the holidays and the puppies were not old enough to come (rabies vaccines + COVID = impossible) - we almost did not go see my family because the thought of leaving the dogs with ANYONE would not do - especially after the training, we did not want them to regress! Not to mention, if you could see how pampered Charlie and Belle are (we do not yet have kids, so they are our kids), you would understand the helicopter parenting my boyfriend and I have over the dogs + the amount we spoil them - they are everything — boarding would not do! — and then here came Colleen and Dan!! :) They took both puppies (note: neither Charlie or Belle were not crate trained or trained to eat set meals) into their home with their 3 dogs (1 of which was also a puppy) and made Charlie and Belle apart of their family for 4 WEEKS!!! During the holidays!!! On top of that - we had originally planned on only being gone 2.5-3 weeks and extended the stay while we were there, which Colleen and Dan welcomed with open arms <3 During that time we received the best videos and photos of our puppies literally THRIVING (we were a little worried Charlie and Belle wouldn’t want to come home lol) under their care all the while being TRAINED and taken to park classes on Saturday!! :) (Note: boarded is not the appropriate word because Colleen and Dan truly made Charlie and Belle part of their family aka dog pack :) We cannot wait to continue working with this program and Colleen and Dan now that we are back in town with our beloved pups! PS - Colleen / Dan: My mom lives at the Four Seasons on the Big Island, HI and she would like you two to open a training center out there!!

Dan and Colleen provided training for my son’s service dog. The training allowed my son to be able to leave home and attend college. We are forever grateful for the gift of a trained service dog to provide independence for our son. Dan and Colleen provided services that went above and beyond what we expected. We will never forget what a gift they have provided to us.

If you are searching for a dog obedience school near you in Davis / Weber County, Dog Training Elite offers expert in-home obedience and group training programs.

Davis / Weber County In-Home Obedience Training Near You


Whether you've introduced a new puppy to the family or recently adopted an older dog, a mischievous pup can have you desperately searching for "obedience training near me." Unlike other dog training companies that teach puppies in large (distracting) classes with often poor results, our obedience training is an in-home program.

Highly personalized, our in-home training program offers a unique touch that other dog training companies can't match. In a large obedience class, your dog will be surrounded by other dogs, people, and outdoor sights and smells. All of these distractions spell major disaster for any training. Additionally, if your dog is learning only from a trainer and not you, it will be hard to form a strong bond with your pet and he may be inclined to disobey when the trainer is not around. To avoid these common pitfalls of traditional training classes, Dog Training Elite sticks to an in-home training obedience program.

During the training session, we will work directly with you and your dog. This allows your dog to understand that you are boss and will encourage him to obey you even after the trainer leaves. Our trainers will teach you tips and tricks so you can continue teaching your dog after the training session is completed. We empower owners to be a part of our dynamic training process. We will teach your dog basic obedience commands and address any unique issues (such as anxiety, aggression, fear, etc). For a solid obedience training program in Davis / Weber County, you can count on Dog Training Elite.

  • In-Home Dog Training
    This part of the obedience program is designed to address your dog's unique behavioral problems. Your dog is most comfortable in his home environment so this is where he exhibits problem behaviors (like terrorizing the cat or chasing the mailman). Dog obedience schools that only offer group classes miss the opportunity to correct these problems.
    At Dog Training Elite, we use private training to understand your dog’s unique personality. This is where most of the training takes place - your dog will learn commands like sit, stay, come, place, etc. The next stage is to test these commands in a distracting setting!
  • Group Classes
    A dog that eagerly listens in the quiet of your own home may be less likely to respond at the dog park where birds, squirrels, other dogs and people are present. That is why we include a group class session in our dog obedience training program. We will test all of the commands we taught your dog at home in the presence of his doggie friends and humans in the great outdoors!

FAQs of Our Dog Obedience Training Program


If you are interested in enrolling your dog for our obedience training program, but still have some questions, read the answers to our most commonly asked questions below!

Dog Training Elite trains dogs of “any breed, any size, any age!” Obedience training is best completed as soon as possible, and we happily take puppies into our classes. But don’t fret if you have an older dog that never received proper training, there is still hope! We can teach basic obedience commands no matter the breed, size, or age of your dog.

We will address any particular behavioral issues and teach your dog to respond to the following commands:

  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Lay
  • Place / Bed
  • Heel (no leash pulling)
  • Off (the couch, bed, etc.)

No, we never use pain or punishment in any form during our training programs. A combination of positive reinforcement and an electronic collar has proven to be 100% successful. The electronic collar produces a gentle “tug” to get your dog's attention. It is not a shock collar and does not harm or alarm your pet.

In-home training is necessary because it allows our trainers to focus on the particular issues of your dog (like terrorizing your pet cat or chasing the mailman). During the in-home training sessions we will also work side by side with you and any other family members so your dog understands who is in control.
