Called Dog Training Elite (DTE) to get some advice on how to work with my aging dogs on some behavioral issues they were having due to my demanding travel schedule. Aidan scheduled an appointment (on a Saturday) to accommodate my schedule and provided honest, candid feedback and some innovative ideas/strategies on ho...

Dog Training Elite has done a great job of training my service dog. The combination of one-on-one training, group classes and their training techniques have been invaluable! Highly, highly recommend them!

Hired them to train our dog and couldn't be more happy with the results. Neal and Chris were both wonderful to work with, listened to any concerns or questions we had, and never rushed through a lesson. Even at group classes, they paid as much attention to each dog and owner and their needs as if each person was the on...

I thought I had made a terrible mistake after adopting my 80 pound, Leonberger puppy. He was destroying my home and yard. He wouldn't come to me when called and he was terrible to walk. Being such a strong dog made it impossible for me to handle him. Aiden, my trainer, worked miracles with him. He is a great dog tr...

Neal, Chris and Lee are freaking amazing! My rottie is like night and day with his behavior. I searched for months to find the right trainer and they have not disappointed. I’m extremely impressed and would recommend to anyone!

Great training! They really helped us to work with our dog to help him build confidence! Great experience!

Neal and Bailey came to my house to meet my 6 month rescue lab mix Elle, and I was FLOORED with the level of obedience, love, companionship and a mutual respect there was. Neal gave commands in a calm normal inside talking voice and Bailey obeyed then from about 50ft + away!!!

I took my miniature dachshund to traditional puppy training classes and was disappointed when our home program failed. With months of training under our belt, at 6 months old my dog spent hours a day barking at anything going by, was still having difficulty with potty training and didn’t consistently follow any comma...

Before purchasing our puppy, I read many training books and I thought I knew how to train her. However, our puppy didn’t do what the books said she would. We couldn’t have kept our dog without Dog Training Elite. Hiring them was money well spent so that we can enjoy our dog for years to come. We appreciate their cu...

Excellent training!! Working with my rescue dog that we have no idea of her history and she has been coming along so quickly! Could not be more pleased with the trainers that have been working with my dog. 4 year old Shepard Mix.

All due respect, i start a pup like a pup, the nature of the dog you get, and the breeds used have genetic predisposition and habitual behaivor comes easy. At a show advertising a product and how you use it in your training are two different topics, and certainly not grounds to bash these folks with pure nonsense. I ca...

I have to give Neal and his crew much thanks. Rosy, my wife, and I started training with them at the first week of May pretty much as a last resort to get our dog trained on just basic obedience, before thinking about maybe having to take her back to the shelter which we were very hesitant on doing because of what coul...

Our 2 yr old yellow lab Kailani had been to a few trainers and still did not listen to us when there were "distractions" (which is often). She wanted to play with every thing that moved around her (bunnies, other dogs, people walking, kids playing). Neal came for our first session and we saw results immediately. The...

Could not be happier with Dog Training Elite. We have a 3 year old bloodhound that could not leave the house without pulling, howling and acting insane.

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 (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 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!

Own the most rewarding business by bringing dogs and their owners closer together. Find out how with Dog Training Elite's unique franchise opportunity!
