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.
Dog Training Elite Denver has award winning in-home dog trainers and top rated dog training programs.

We were at a loss on how to help our puppy develop to be a well mannered dog. We saw immediate positive results when we started this program.

I met Sarah at Aspen Grove and signed up for a home demonstration. The appointment was set, but I called Sarah in hysterics because Bucky had escaped from the front door for the umpteenth time. Sarah moved her schedule around so that we could meet sooner. I admit, I was a bit skeptic that my money would go to waste and that it wasn't possible in six sessions for Bucky to change. Well, six sessions later I was in tears again; this time because Bucky was listening to my commands and seemed to be so responsive. As an aside, the Ballard family members are exceptional human beings.

Seems like we have met the whole team and I cannot speak highly enough of the time and patience they bring to us each week in helping us learn to effectively train our puppy. Highly recommend them and will use them for future dogs whom we want to train as well.

In the midst of the Covid 19 quarantine our family had the opportunity to adopt a young mini schnauzer. There were some issues that we wanted to be addressed but didn't know what to do. Simple walks were difficult and general obedience was not always so easy. Trying to figure out our new dog was stressful at times. But, thanks to the Ballard's and Dog Training Elite, life with our dog is so much more enjoyable for our family and the our dog. It has changed everything for us as first time dog owners. Dog Training Elite is exactly what we needed. There continued support is still ongoing even now as we continue to train our dog. If you want to have that special bond and relationship with your dog, I highly recommend Dog Training Elite.

These wonderful people transformed my two beautiful but Ornery dogs into well behaved beautiful ones. Before them I could not walk them together with out taking life or limb risk. They broke my ankle going after a Christmas reindeer ornament. Now we go everyday along with my daughters dog without any danger to them, other dogs or myself. It is worth every penny and then some. I give them 10 stars.

The quality of their program is so much better than we have experienced in the past with other places. Most programs only make your dog do something if you have a treat. This is an affordable solution to serious training needs.

The Dog Training Elite Team were simply incredible. Came to our house (were very cautious with human to human contact, wore masks and carried disinfectant) they identified several key behavioural concerns with our dog and begun addressing them straight away. Within in one session I feel much more secure about training my dog and they are definitely coming back. Have recommended them to friends and co workers too!

I was lucky enough to meet Sarah, Bert, and Adria at a training demonstration in the park, and they have already responded to my request for an initial evaluation at my home! Their prices are a lot more reasonable than I was expecting. Looking forward to getting some of these behaviors corrected in a healthy, positive way!
