Why Dog Training Elite Denver?

Lifetime Investment

We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.

Value Priced

We pride ourselves on being able to offer our professional services at prices that are budget friendly.

Local Trainers

All of our local dog trainers are trustworthy, willing to be there for our clients and love what they do.

Simplified & Customized

We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.

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.

Our Dog Training Process in Aurora, CO

One of our local dog trainers will come to your Aurora home to meet with you and your dog, assess any issues and strengths and help you select a personalized program that will best suit you both. We will then demonstrate one of our trained dogs to help you better understand our dog training techniques and the results they produce.

A Dog Training Elite Denver graduate will behave both at home and in distracting environments due to our multi-environmental approach and the results will be lasting if the owner remains a key player in the training process. A dog signed up for one of our programs is a part of the Dog Training Elite Denver family for life. Our Aurora, CO dog trainers are known for their ongoing and exceptional support given to owners. We believe in what we do and want to instill confidence in both owners and their dogs. Request your Aurora, CO dog training demo today!

I highly recommended Dog Training Elite Denver for all training needs. I have trained 3 dogs through their service animal program with great success and have first hand the efficacy of their method in resolving all types of behavioral issues. On top of everything, the DTE Denver team has provided over the top personalized support through every challenge I have faced with my precious pups. I’m a big fan - to say the absolute least!

DTE-Denver truly lives up to their tagline. They absolutely are the last dog trainers you'll ever need. I found DTE-Denver after my Goldendoodle was certified as a therapy dog through another trainer, but I didn't feel that her behavior was as reliable as I wanted it to be in order to to feel safe with students in my classroom. After 4 months of training with DTE, my pup passed her therapy test and is as reliable off-leash as she is on-leash. We love all of you at DTE-Denver! Thank you for changing our lives and the lives of the students Kona will continue to help for years to come!

The Ballards have changed my life by training my dog and I to be the best team we can be! If you are looking for service dog training, I would highly recommend. DTE’s training program works fast and it sticks! Han Solo and I have so much fun at group classes. They make things fun and structured. You are not only training your dog! You are finding a like minded community to support you in the process. ☀️That’s a beautiful thing ☀️ Thank you guys for being such a compassionate company!! 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Ballards and their staff are amazing people! They truly have become part of our family. They have helped change two of my sons lives raising, training and loving their service dogs. I will 100% use their services for all current and future training needs and recommend anyone who wants top notch training to use them as well.

My pup loves going here, and she is learning so much! Our other two dogs also do in home obedience and have learned so much and become such better listeners after working with the trainers from DTE.

DTE has been a game changer for the training of our future therapy dog, Kona. Their no-treat training methods, extrememly knowledgeable, patient and kind trainers, personalized training approach in both 1-1 and group classes, and attentiveness to their clients (canine and human) have been the catalyst for bringing out the very best in Kona and the very best in me, as Kona's handler. DTE will always be a part of our family and we will truly never need another trainer again. Thank you, DTE!!!

Fantastic trainers and proven methodology. We have a 1 1/2 year old 80 lbs Sheepadoodle. Within about 6 weeks, he changed from a leash-puller to a full on off leash dog. We hike and run with him off leash and enjoy walking with him a lot more (I climbed a Colorado 14er with him yesterday fully off leash). Life-changing for us. Highly recommend.

I’ve been working with DTE Dog Training Elite, Since August 2021. Told them I had a 28 year old daughter with cognitively delayed Epilepsy, balance issues depression and anger, They found the perfect dog for my daughter. Nevaeh is only 5 1/2 months old and is very well trained/behaved, smart, and loving. DTE and the Ballard family have been so kind and helpful. I look forward to continued training, and the new friends I have made at DTE

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Dog Training Elite-Denver! Our yellow Labrador, Luke, has done wonderfully—such an amazing transformation he has come through—with all the professional training from Dog Training Elite! He really looks forward to his training time everyday and loves Group Class as well! I LOVE our training time together and just the everyday stuff like…healing when we go for a walk and his eagerness to try to fit in with other dogs he doesn’t know…has become so much easier! It has definitely strengthened our bond even deeper.. plus we get to experience so many “Good Dog Days” together now! I couldn’t be happier with all the support, patience, expert training and helpful advice with whatever we needed. We really want to thank ALL of the trainers and especially the owners/trainers, Bert, Sarah and Adria, for helping us through every aspect of Luke’s training…and to be honest, more help was needed on my end then in Luke’s! LOL! We feel like family and this is a rare find with any business! I highly recommend Dog Training Elite for your fur babies! The bond you create with your dog, through professional training from Dog Training Elite-Denver, will last a life time!
