Read Real Stories

After trying in vain to train our Yellow Lab I called Dog Training Elite and Aiden came out and I kid you not within the first 10 minutes he was behaving and doing what was asked. It was like a Christmas miracle in November. Within 6 visits we had a new dog. Now with the training sessions at the park we are fine tuning our dog. Money well spent.

We love DTE! We have an Irish Wolfhound that is so shy and this has really given her confidence! We are just about to start park lessons and I think that will help socially! Well worth the money!

Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (aka "Pavlovian"or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In it's simplest form (after proper conditioning) -- when owner says 'sit', dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter the behavior we encounter.

  • Empowering Owners

    We empower owners to train so 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 (ie. jogging, park, home).
  • Supportive

    We support owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
  • Involved

    We work with all members of household.
  • Simplified & Customized

    We plan training around owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training

    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment

    We follow-up & are invested in owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings

    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

Therapy Animal Training

A DTE facility therapy dog is highly trained to have a positive impact on the health and well being of both individuals and community health.

Therapy Animal Program

Once clients and their dogs have basic commands in place (meaning the dog will successfully come, sit, stay and obey other basic commands), clients are invited to join DTE for additional training that is highly valuable in further building upon already learned techniques. DTE group classes are designed to place the owner and their dog in public places (surrounded by other dogs, people, smells and sounds), so that owners can train their dog to obey them... regardless of the many distractions screaming for their attention!

Introducing Your Dog to Your Baby

Introducing Your Dog to Your Baby

For many couples, a dog is their first "baby." You often give your dog the same love and care that you would a child. Your routines will shift once the child arrives, and that change in routine can sometimes be difficult for a dog to adjust to. Like babies, dogs thrive on predictability, and a newborn dramatically changes not only your life but your dog's as well.
