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 Dallas—Fort Worth 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 Dallas—Fort Worth, 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 Dallas—Fort Worth, 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 Fort Worth

Searching for a professional dog trainer is stressful. Thankfully, Dog Training Elite Dallas—Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth, 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 Fort Worth area.

Dog Training Elite Dallas—Fort Worth is proud to have the highest rated in-home dog trainers in Fort Worth.

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 Dallas—Fort Worth’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 Dallas—Fort Worth, 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 Dallas—Fort Worth provides professional and personalized in-home dog training programs in near you Fort Worth.

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 .

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!

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!!!
