Aggression is one of the worst behaviors your dog can exhibit. Left unchecked, an aggressive dog can be a potential threat to family members, strangers, other dogs, or themselves. Many dog owners do not know how to train a dog with aggressive tendencies or even how to recognize early warning signs of aggressive behavior. Catching aggressive behavior early on is important in eliminating aggression. An aggressive dog may exhibit the following behaviors:

  • Growling or bearing teeth
  • Threatening barks
  • Standing rigid and/or taller
  • Raised fur
  • Nipping and/or biting

Left unchecked, these warning signs may lead to a dog acting out in a potentially dangerous way, like biting or attacking a person or another dog. Aggression usually arises from fear, anxiety, improper training, or a negative environment. Dogs that were rescued from a poor situation or found on the street have a higher chance of exhibiting aggressive behaviors. Fortunately, all aggression can be addressed with professional dog training. Dog Training Elite of Durham and Chapel Hill specializes in aggression training and can teach your dog to be a happy, friendly, and loyal pet.

Dog Training Elite offers expert aggressive dog training programs near you in Durham and Chapel Hill.

Personalized Behavior Modification Training Process


The trainers of Dog Training Elite understand that each and every dog is unique and we have worked hard to develop a comprehensive dog training program that eliminates aggressive behaviors that can be applied to various dog breeds. We will work with you and your dog together, ensuring that your dog understands you are the one in control. By completing our training program in your home, we are better able to understand the underlying causes that may be triggering your dog’s aggression. By eliminating fears and anxieties, we can work with your dog to develop an understanding that aggressive behaviors are unacceptable. We never use punishment in any of our training programs as punishment has been shown to actually increase aggression in dogs. We have had 100% success in eliminating aggressive behavior in dogs using positive reinforcement and obedience training.

A pet should be loving and loyal to your family. Don’t let aggressive behavior go unchecked as it could lead to someone getting hurt. Aggression is a complicated behavior in dogs that is best left up to professional trainers. For quality Durham and Chapel Hill aggressive dog training, contact Dog Training Elite and make an appointment today.

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.

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!

Alexx has been a tremendous trainer. She is so patient, easy-going, and direct with her steps to train my dog. She equips me with the tools and knowledge to tackle on each week's focus. I would recommend Dog Training Elite to any friend, family, or stranger. They will come to your house and work with you and your dog.

We could not be any happier with your company and the wonderful loving staff. Our dog Cody is a 130 pound German Shepard that was Mr Man, ruler of all things in our yard, next door, across the street, in the sky… ha. He chased and barked at everything. Thanks to you guys he now has manners. Everyone that visits can’t believe the difference. People that use to be afraid of him, now visit and compliment us on how sweet he is. He just needed some training and so did we. Thank you!!!! Pam, Tony snd Cody!!!!!!❤️

A little over a year ago we adopted two rescues from Saving Grace(amazing group). However one was so anxious and scared of everything, even his shadow, would upset him. We tried training with another company and were told he was untrainable since he wasn’t treat motivated. We were running short on options. Dog Training Elite has given us a way to communicate and bond with Henry and appreciate each other. Henry is a happier pup We are enthusiastic advocates for the e collar and Dog Training Elite. Within hours, we are walking Henry with ease and at a comfortable pace. All of our challenges have been overcome and outings with Henry are a great experience. Henry has moved from being very anxious and hard to walk to a pleasure and fun. Henry has progressed so well that we have been able to go to lowes where loud noises and commotion were triggers for Henry and he overcame and interacted in a friendly manner. We are very excited and so impressed with the program. Henry’s growth has been nothing but phenomenal. Dog Training Elite is outstanding! We are very excited and so impressed with the program.
