One of the most difficult, necessary, and rewarding behaviors to correct in a dog is anxiety and aggression. Anxiety and aggression are behaviors that can be learned, genetic, or innate. When a dog feels threatened, the two natural responses will be fight or flight. Most dogs will attempt to put as much distance between themselves and the threat; if the threat remains they will then turn to aggression or submit. Other dogs are overly confident pack leaders and will turn first to aggression. Both of these reactions stem from anxiety and can be fixed with a balanced, positive aggressive dog training in Fort Worth.

Dog Training Elite Dallas—Fort Worth behavior modification process is highly personalized. We work to empower owners as they work alongside our professional dog trainers in Fort Worth to build confidence and understanding in their dogs. We work with owners in their home to slowly retrain a dog’s reactions to stressful situations and then work to integrate them back into the community.

Our Aggressive Dog Behavior Training Process

We will first meet the dog in a free in-home assessment to gain an understanding of the reasons for the aggression, anxiety, or fears. We will assess triggers and build a personalized training program for each unique dog and targeting their specific behavior. For fearful and anxious dogs, our trainers will work alongside owners to build confidence. 

For overly aggressive dogs, training will help owners establish a pack leader position in the home.  We will work to desensitize a dog to their biggest triggers and anxiety and when the dog has reached a safe baseline obedience level in these situations we then introduce them to our class settings.  A muzzle is required for class settings to ensure the safety of all dogs as these classroom settings are designed to integrate the dog back into social settings successfully.

Dog Training Elite has expert dog trainers near you in Fort Worth experienced in anxious and aggressive dog obedience training.

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!

Dog training elite is the 3rd training service I've tried for my reactive dog. By far, this has been the most progress that I've seen in my dog thanks to Dog Training Elite! The trainers are very knowledgeable and can help break down what your dog is feeling and why they are reacting in certain ways. They provide information about what you as the handler need to do for a successful training program. We have yet to start the group sessions, but I'm extremely impressed. They've helped answer all my questions so the unique challenges I face were addressed. I am very grateful to have found them and for all of their time and support. I utilized the payment plan option - money well spent!

Training with Dog Training Elite has been everything I asked for and more. My dog and I have regained our trust and confidence in each other, and I have learned so much more about how to interact and communicate with my dog. Jordan and Kyler have been incredible trainers. They do not spare any detail when teaching they’re training process and always go the extra mile to insure I am confident and have a full understanding of what we went over in each training session. I would recommend them to my friends and family that are looking for exceptional dog training.

I would recommend learning from Dog Training Elite. They have wonderfully professional trainers who are focused on ensuring a safe and effective learning environment for your dog. Cat and Felicity were wonderful! Their own dogs are also amazingly trained and were exactly what Einstein needed to help him build his confidence around other dogs. They listen to what you need and help you build that relationship to help bring both you and your dog together!

DTE has been a great decision for me & my wife to choose for training our 11 month Cane Corso puppy Rocco. Our most challenging trainer Jordan and his amazing Rottweiler Atlas have been really instrumental in Rocco’s growth and development through the program. We definitely recommend Jordan and DTE for anyone looking for a solid trainer and comprehensive training program for their dog.

I came to them with a dog that I could not even walk on a leash, she was a good girl but just pulled to the point of choking herself out. I could not "communicate" with her on any level, and she barely could hold a sit - not because she did not know the command but more she just didn't want to. When I moved to Texas, this was the last hope really, for my girl and I. If the trainers could not help her, I was going to be forced to rehome her. I gave Dog Training Elite a call, and all I can say is magic happened. They are amazing, it was pure magic. I first got a dog that I could walk, talk to, and give commands to. She stopped jumping on everyone that even glanced at her, she stopped trying to choke herself out every time she was on a leash. Stormy, turned into a different dog. The trainers were great, in that they worked with me, explained everything, they were so very patient with me every step of the way and the fears I had even walking my own dog. Even if it meant just walking around my apartment complex for the training session or a part of it to reinforce that I COULD do it, and Stormy could too. Once we graduated from obedience training, Storm and I moved into Service Dog training - which I fully admit, I was doubtful. I did not think my demon dog could do it. Or at least the wild child that she was couldn't do it. But once more, these guys proved me wrong and proved I should have far more confidence in my dog. My girl, loves to work. She loves to learn. She is going above and beyond to do her job now - and she is learning without much issues but every time there is a issue if I call up these trainers they are here for me, questions, concerns, or even to come back out to my place and work with me on the issue. Storm got her public access awhile ago but I was still scared, and it was today that I finally went out somewhere I WANTED to go, not somewhere I needed to go. Of course, Storm went with me and because of her - I was able to do it. I didn't feel the need to run, or leave, and I did it. I did what I set out to do. It sounds so little, but it was freedom. A freedom that was gifted to me through my dog, by these guys. I recommend these trainers for everyone. They care about you, and most importantly your dog. Their trainers are amazing, best of the best, they will answer any and all of your questions with ease and patience. They will work with you no matter what issues or concerns you have. I can not state how much they have meant to me, because of them once more I can start living. I will forever be grateful. Please give them a chance to save your dog, and your sanity. 100/10 stars.

We had a wonderful experience with Dog Training Elite. Jordan was an incredible trainer He was patient, thorough, and very effective, even in teaching my 14 year old son to training his dog. Also Jordan’s dog Atlas is so well trained and a perfect addition to the value of the training to have him along as a serious distraction! We’re so grateful for the help. Our dog is doing wonderfully with his training progress!

Since we have found this place our dog’s behavior has improved so much. Jordan is so easy to work with and our dog Violet responds great to him. He is very thorough and detailed with every direction. He is very clear to show every step and guide us through the training when it is our turn to take the lead. He answers the questions we have with great detail and gives great examples. He is also very patient and kind with our dog. His dog Atlas is the best example for how we want our dog to be. Just seeing how well behaved and trained his dog is shows us exactly how we want our dog to be. He is hands down a great trainer.

Jordan was great at each training session. He helped us problem solve some of our unique scenarios with our special needs son and our dog Jack. He was calm and patient and very good at explaining things in a way we could understand especially as it was happening in the moment . He was punctual and communicated well. His dog Atlas was cool and helped several times during our sessions. It’s been a great experience so far and so happy to have a dog that walks well on and off leash and is well mannered around people .

Jordan with Dog Training Elite did an outstanding job with our dogs. Very knowledgeable and gives great tips. Even brings his own dog Atlas to help create real situations for our dogs to react to. Recommend highly.

One could not possibly understand what their dogs are capable of (or what they aren’t capable) of until they sit in an evaluation with the trainers from Elite! They where able to pin both of our dogs MJ (American bulldog pit bull) and Rex’s (dobermanlab) personalities and there has been a positive night and day difference since day 1! (Literally Rex ignored a cat 1 foot away and a beautiful dog the trainer brought to distract him!) We have made it 4 weeks in so far and the dogs have learned come, (which addressed their issue with jumping on people and kept them from trying to run out the door every time it’s open!) sit (which has allowed us to better control them and set the mood before we walk out to take them on a walk, to go potty and in the car) place (which has been one of my favorite commands since it establishes where they should be when your talking to someone, when your watching tv and keeps them out of trouble) then this week we learned Heel 🐾 my American bulldog pit bull is 9 months and I normally have to hand her to my husband for walking because of how strong she is, however today I was able to walk her with complete ease for the first time ever! 🥹 as someone who plays Pokémongo and wants her dog with her this is the dream! Trey has been great from the start and helped set clear expectations while also educating us on how to properly communicate with our fur baby Jordan has worked with us twice and he’s been beyond fantastic with explaining why we train the way we do and the homework is always clear and honestly it’s been curing my dogs confidence issues (she was a rescue who went to two different kennels before we met her) she’s shown the most change and I absolutely love it, Rex has honestly been a stud he has done WAY better then I thought he would and I honestly contribute it to how amazing the trainers have been. I can’t wait to continue training with them and look forward to seeing how everything looks at the end! Can’t suggest Dog Training Elite more and definitely recommend that if you have a dog you use the free in home evaluation!

Hiring Dog Training Elite helped us mitigate the destructive issues we were having with our fur babies. We have two beautiful, mischievous miniature poodles that lacked discipline. We worked with trainer, Jordan Benitez. Jordan had a very focused and hands on approach. He accessed our situation and personalized training to fit our needs. He was very consistent and intentional in his training method. He provided great advice that helped us manage through the bad behavioral issues. Jordan’s help proved that investing in training was worth it. We highly recommend Jordan!

Felicity is fantastic. She is very good at explaining commands and homework. Her instructions and her patience is phenomenal would recommend her to everybody.

Wow! Jordan is a great coach.! He seriously acts out the persona of the dog and you (the dog parent) so that it’s so easy to learn. I live with my parents and my yapping and uncontrollable dog would make my parents so upset at me. This was my first dog ever too. Jordan helped me so much. My parents can’t stop thanking me for going to Dog Training Elite because of Jordan! My dog used to be really bad.

We have truly enjoyed all the trainers at DTE. We have 4 young children and 3 other dogs besides the dog we are training. To say the trainers are exceptional is an understatement. Jordan is a family favorite. He is so patient and calm and does an outstanding job. He even braved Home Depot with our family of 6 to train Bella. We are impressed with her progress and couldn’t be happier with our choice of trainers. Thank you!

Are you looking for the best means out there to train your dog? You’ve found it!! I highly recommend Dog Training Elite. I took their at-home program which includes unlimited access to group sessions at their facility as desired. I adopted a 2YO dachshund/pitt mix from the pound with some sass and bad habits who was getting love but needed some structure and stability. DTE helped me not merely teach my dog useful, everyday commands but also build a trust and respect with her that has helped us build a wonderful life together! Now I can take her out with me anywhere dogs are welcome! Special shout out to our trainer, Jordan! He always did an amazing job of reading when my dog needed to be pushed or if she was truly at her limit. He was also very supportive of me as a trainer, giving advice unique to our situation and encouraging insight into life with his own dog.

As an owner of two Doberman puppies, we knew we needed a trainer that is extremely strong, knowledgeable and consistent to work with us and our dogs. We unfortunately attempted a board and train that was not successful, with a different company. We needed someone that would meet not only our dogs needs but our needs, in the home. Yuni came in for the evaluation and she heard all of our wants and needs. We knew immediately we wanted to work with this team because of her professionalism, knowledge, and understanding. Kyler then showed up and changed our lives. He was able to work with our dogs, teach us so much about how to properly train them, and showed so much strength and patience throughout the process. Kyler has become such an important person in our lives. We truly love how Dog Training Elite has been so available to us to answer any and all questions and to be of constant support. We continue to grow and learn in group training classes and enjoy meeting other well trained dogs and parents. We have the most amazing behavior because of the hard work and guidance. Thank so much Kyler!!!
