Many dog owners express frustration when their dog returns from obedience school and has not learned one command successfully. While obedience school trainers teach your dog simple commands, effective training is best done at home with the owner. Each dog is unique, with its own temperament and behavioral issues. Full-scope training is not possible to achieve without an in-home dog training program.

During in-home sessions, trainers get to know the dog and its environment. There are often particular issues- chasing the mailman or barking at the neighbor’s cat - that are not observed in an out-of-home setting. Bringing a professional dog trainer into your home creates a personalized training experience, that addresses your dog’s particular issues.

In-home dog training is more successful than group classes because it minimizes distractions. Basic obedience and behavioral issues must first be addressed with one-on-one private training, and then these lessons can be tested in a more distracting environment. Dog Training Elite Denver takes a comprehensive approach, pairing in-home training with group lessons to ensure your dog fully retains every command and can respond appropriately regardless of the environment.

In-home dog trainers can address a variety of issues, such as:


  • Housebreaking
  • Leash pulling
  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Ignoring commands
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping on people
  • Destructive behaviors

Positive Training Methods


At Dog Training Elite Denver, we understand that you want the best for your dog, and our goal is to ensure all training experiences are positive for you and your furry friend! Our team of trainers has learned that positive reinforcement and classical conditioning are the most effective training methods. We never use punishment - we love dogs and we want them to learn in a positive, safe environment! By rewarding dogs for good behavior rather than punishing negative behaviors, our trainers effectively teach your canine companion how to behave.

In Home Dog Training Goals

While our professional dog trainers will be taking the lead, you, and any other family members who interact with your dog will be a part of the training process as well. In-home dog training empowers you and helps you build a positive relationship with your dog.

Benefits of Positive In-Home Training Techniques

Dogs enjoy training sessions if they take place with the person they love. Listening, learning, and acting on commands is a way for your dog to show you that he cares! The praise you bestow your pup (and the tasty treat you give) makes him happy, and this experience of learning is a great bonding activity.

Sending your dog off to obedience school removes you from the training process and prevents this special bonding from occurring. When you choose Dog Training Elite Denver, we ensure you are part of the training process. All in-home training programs involve you and any other family members that care for your dog. Our trainers’ goal is to teach you how to train your dog.

Obedience commands are essential to any full-scope dog training program. These commands ensure the safety of your dog and prevent any undesired problems. Obedience is the core of successful training, and your dog must learn these commands before he can progress.

Our in-home training program focuses on ingrained obedience and our trainers ensure your dog learns essential commands, such as sit, place, come, stay, lay, off, drop it, and more. Once these key lessons are taught, our trainers will work with you and your pup on more advanced topics.

Does your dog jump up as a greeting, or charge the door anytime visitors announce their arrival with the doorbell? Or perhaps he begs from the table with wide, puppy eyes? These problem behaviors are easily corrected with the right training techniques.

Group classes or “puppy essentials” training programs cannot address most problem behaviors, as these issues are more likely to occur at home where your dog is most comfortable and confident. Bringing a trusted trainer into your home is the best way to address these behaviors!

In-Home Dog Trainers in Denver

Searching for a professional dog trainer is stressful. Thankfully, Dog Training Elite Denver has various locations and experienced professional dog trainers ready to assist you and your pet. Besides basic obedience issues, our trainers are experienced in service dog training, therapy dog training, and any other specialized training your pup may need. If you are looking for in-home dog trainers in Denver, then look no further than Dog Training Elite.

We never use shock collars or punishments; our training method focuses on positive reinforcement, which has proven successful. We combine this positive reinforcement with an electronic vibration collar for optimal results. The vibration collar is not a shock collar nor does it cause pain - it is used to get your dog’s attention, like the tug of a leash. Our techniques have proven successful over the years, and we are proud to be a trusted provider of dog training services in the Denver area.

Dog Training Elite Denver is proud to have the highest rated in-home dog trainers in Denver.

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.

Why Choose a Professional?


DIY training often fails because most dog owners do not know how to communicate with their canine companions. A professional trainer teaches you how to communicate with your dog, making training easier and results long-lasting.

Dog Training Elite Denver’s in-home training program is highly personalized as opposed to most other programs available to dog owners. Together, owners and canines create stronger bonds along with sustained obedience. Contact us today for a free in-home evaluation!

In-Home Dog Training FAQs


As your dog spends most of his time inside your home or around your property, this is where problem behaviors are more likely to occur. When you bring your dog to group classes, these behaviors are likely to go unaddressed. Bringing a trainer in your home allows for your dog to feel comfortable and gives the trainer a chance to catch and correct negative behaviors.
At Dog Training Elite, we create highly personalized programs because we know every dog is different. Our in-home dog training program focuses on basic obedience, housebreaking, and behavior correction. If your dog is a barker, a mailman chaser, or displays aggression, your personal trainer will focus on these unique behaviors.
Yes! Our professional trainers include you in the lessons and work hard to help you and your dog establish a bond of trust. When the dog owner is not included in the training process, it is extremely difficult to establish obedience in your dog. A dog dropped off at over-stimulating, distracting doggie daycare or group training sessions will have difficulty translating those lessons into his home environment.
At Dog Training Elite Denver, we use positive reinforcement methods and a gentle vibration collar. We never abuse or use punishment tactics. A happy dog is an obedient dog, and we work with treats, praise and attention to help your dog establish healthy behaviors.

Dog Training Elite Denver provides professional and personalized in-home dog training programs in near you Denver.

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 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!

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.

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.
