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

I would rate them 5 Stars Outstanding From the first contact with Marie's team, I found the professional, willing and able to help with our 5 year old Plot Hound rescue. We rescued our Tazzy from a no kill shelter 6 months ago. We are dog lovers and have two wonderful dogs who live to the age of 14. Tazzy is by far the most active. We don't know her history but found her aggressive with anyone coming to the door or gate. From the first lesson, Marie was always helpful in explaining each step she was taking with the training. I soon realized we need to remain calm but in control when Tazzy acted out. We needed training too. With Marie's guidance, patience and authority, Tazzy's behavior with strangers is very much improved. We would recommend Marie's Dog Training Elite to everyone who wants to learn how to adjust their thinking and methods in training their dog. They are remarkable!

I have been having a great experience this far with my dogs training. Marie has been patient and gentle while working with my reactive/anxious dog. We have had 6 individual classes and 1 group class so far and my dog has shown such great improvement. I am also being conditioned to be more relax when walking him and more confident in my expected action of my dog from my commands.

Thanks for all trainers. Our dog is a golden retriever 3.5 years old. We took her to parks, hotels and travel with her. She has a good behavior and love with people. Marie and her staff done very good work

Marie’s patience and dedication has been beyond what I ever expected. The Dog training Elites team is exceptional. Their compassion and pride in what they do is evident. I am beyond pleased with how our furry companion has progressed and continues to progress. We look forward to our appointments because they are always so successful. I highly recommend Dog Training Elite. I cannot thank Marie and Gus from Elite Training enough for everything they’ve done and continue to do.

I want to begin what a comfortable and trusting experience Marie and Gus made my decision to add Dog Training Elite to my Cane Corso’s regiment. I needed a strong, yet gentle trainer that would know the exact needs of my furever friend. I found that in Marie and DTE. My pup needed one on one training, as well as classes where he would get to know other dogs in a group setting. The dog park was not where I wanted him to learn. Marie teaches the basic fundamentals of obedience and guidance, both for the owner and your pup. That was an added plus to know the obedience started with ME! There is no hesitation for me to know this was and is currently the best fit for me and my Corso. The company has strong roots and is well established. Marie really takes her time to get to know your pup. I can’t say enough positives about this company and the personal and loving approach that has been provided. I STRONGLY recommend you to give it a try and see all what I am taking about. I have seen such a huge difference in my dog and the techniques we have been shown really work. This is a training you will have with you forever. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Marie and DTE. I have seen this work first hand from the smallest to biggest, older to younger. Even if you think it’s too early or your dog is too far gone to learn, you’ll be ultimately surprised as to what can be done. It’s a true transformation, tailored to you and your buddy. There is no cookie cutter approach, and Marie knows the needs of each one. So try, I did, and it’s the best decision I made for the both of us!

Marie and Gus truly are the last trainers you’ll ever need for your dog! No app or program could never even come close to the results that you will INSTANTLY see with your dog after the first session. The professionalism, compassion, and precision with which they handle our pups is masterful. Our dogs run to each of them when they arrive! They love them so much! We were seeking a comprehensive training program, and boy did they deliver. Please, please give Gus and Marie a try!! It will change your household!

Where to even begin? Dog Elite is by far the best in south Florida. Marie and Gus are absolutely wonderful and easy to talk to. The support they provide will instantly make you feel better about whatever situation you’re in. I went into this not really knowing how it will be. I have a 5 year old Dutch shepherd that was aggressive towards people; however the way Marie handled her was astonishing. You would’ve thought that it was her dog! They are great individuals and I love the program that they have. It isn’t just a trainer-owner thing, you feel like you develop more of a friendship and that’s what makes it valuable and worth it. Try them out and you won’t regret it.
