With a little extra love and care, a shelter or rescue dog can be a great addition to your family. While not every dog that comes from a shelter has a traumatic past, there is really no way to know what your new dog has been through. You will need to be patient as your new pet adjusts to his new environment. It is common for shelter or rescue dogs to display aggression, anxiety, and/or disobedient behaviors. If you’re having difficulty training your new pet, a professional training program can help make the transition easier for both you and your dog. At Dog Training Elite, we offer aggressive dog training in Davis / Weber County and other programs designed for shelter or rescue dogs.

Below are some simple training steps you can take
to ensure an easy transition for your pet:


  • Create a safe space
    It is important for your dog to have a place they can go when they feel overwhelmed or afraid. A crate is a great idea as it creates a safe environment for your dog and also makes housetraining easier.
  • Allow for adjustment
    Your new dog will need some time to adjust to his surroundings. Be patient while your dog explores your home and yard.
  • Stay on schedule
    Dogs benefit from routine as much as people do. Create a schedule for food, training, and play so your dog can have some stability.
  • Give lots of love
    Most rescue or shelter dogs haven’t had the most positive past. With lots of extra love and attention, you can help them feel safe and secure in their new home.

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!

I was ready to rehome my aggressive pitbull. But through working with Salena I love my dog again and I am able to take her out for walks with out her trying to attack other dogs or people that frighten her. She is building confidence with each session. Thanks DTE for helping me keep my dog at home were she belongs.

I recommend them to anyone who owns a dog, from the biggest to the smallest. Thanks Dog Training Elite Northern Utah for helping my boy Carlos be the goodest of all good boys:)

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.
