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 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 the owner's success long-term.

This is an amazing group of people who are very professional, helpful, and caring. During the peak of COVID last year I took my pup to Olympus Cove Vet (NEVER take your pets there) and they didn't let me go inside during the appt. I'm not sure how they handled my pup, but she was different after the appt and became aggressive towards me. Trevor taught me so much about my pup and helped us stop my dogs aggressive behavior. She is back to being the sweet little girl she was before the vet experience and no longer bites, runs away from us, or snarls. Trevor not only taught us about anxiety/aggression in dogs, but he taught us basic dog training tools we will use for pups we get in the future. Thank you so much Trevor and Dog Elite!

We had a stubborn GSP that wanted to rule the roost and then some. We were basically a hot mess express trying to go it alone. Evan to the rescue! There is a night and day difference in our dude and we are so happy we found Dog Training Elite. We highly recommend them to anyone!

I was ready to rehome my aggressive pitbull. But through working with Salena I love my dog again and I am able to take her out for walks with out her trying to attack other dogs or people that frighten her. She is building confidence with each session. Thanks DTE for helping me keep my dog at home were she belongs.

Working with DTE was a phenomenal experience. We had a very troubled rescue with severe anxiety and DTE made her a new pup. We are so thrilled with her progress and cannot recommend DTE enough!

‘Shawn was amazing to work with and I could see immediate results after the very first day! He and his staff are on time to pick up my puppy and brought her back every day on time. They would then spend some time with me so that I could learn the training she had learned that day. I am so very thankful for this company and I highly recommend!

If you're looking to get your dog trained, whether for obedience or service, Dog Training Elite is THE place to go. You won't find a more dedicated and kind trainer in the Houston area who cares for animals and their humans alike. I'm not usually one to leave reviews, but thanks to Alex and his business I'm slowly getting my life back. It has been nothing short of amazing to have someone so compassionate, devoted, and patient training my dog to be my service animal. I'd had my disability diagnosis for a long time, but I always thought getting my dog trained would be out of my reach. I had done a cursory search on Google in the past and found that the price points for service dog training were altogether inaccessible for me. Enter Dog Training Elite. After finding them on Google, I submitted my information, and had Alex call me back almost immediately. From the very first meeting, Alex put me right at ease. We resolved to start my English Shepherd, Moony, in obedience training with the goal of transitioning her to service training if she did well. Throughout the entire process, Alex brought positive energy, patience, and a calming confidence to our training sessions. He balances a warm personality with professionalism, and his love of animals shines through in every session. At times when I was unsure Moony would be able to learn something new, he encouraged both me and Moony to keep practicing. Moony was stubborn and energetic, but Alex believed in her ability to learn. He believed in her ability to grasp the commands even when I was anxious that she wouldn't. My training sessions with Alex and Moony are always the highlight of my week. The level of kindness, understanding, and genuine joy that he brings to sessions has made this experience unforgettable. Where other trainers I've worked with have felt impersonal, Alex is engaging, present, and genuinely cares for the animals he works with. We have been in training with Alex for 4 months, and Moony has officially passed her service dog test! Thanks to Alex, I am slowly regaining control of my life. Being able to take Moony with me everywhere has given me a freedom I haven't felt in a long time. This is not something I could have done or accomplished without Alex. Moony and I are eternally indebted to him and his business. If you are looking for a training service that will make you feel secure, confident, comfortable, and free of judgment, look no further. There aren't enough words in the English language to truly describe how amazing this experience has been!

Thank you for all that you have done with Ranger in just two weeks. He follows commands, walks great on and of a leash, more confident, less barking at other dogs and humans and you’ve made him a more enjoyable part of our family! In just 2 weeks of training we can see such a difference with him minding his manners. I can’t believe how much progress he made in a short period of time. Everyone was very professional and accommodating to our needs and Ranger’s needs. We are truly thankful for the all that you have done to make a Ranger and more confident and obedient puppy 🐶🙌🏻

Tyler was absolutely amazing! Our dog is wonderful and funny and amazing and pretty gosh darned smart, yet he still had bad habits and a lack of ability to understand some basic commands. Tyler turned all that around and is pretty much a miracle worker. We even asked for something off the menu in our last session and I’m not kidding, Tyler had him doing the off menu item within four minutes. ❤️🐶❤️ I wish I had those skills!

I truly cannot say enough good things about DTE and Shawn!! My 6 month old doodle puppy was pulling bad on a leash and was puppy biting. After the first day I saw a HUGE change in Goose. He was no longer pulling on a leash or biting. By the end of the 2 week day camp, Goose could completely walk off leash with no issues. Shawn is extremely knowledge and makes sure you are completely comfortable with each command that they teach.This has been the best investment for both me and my pup and I will forever recommend them to anyone I meet!

Dog Training Elite Charlotte turned my 1 year old German Shepard mix from a stubborn, resource aggressive, and inattentive dog into a confident, obedient, and happy dog!! She learned to come, sit, lay down, and stay in place to each command given. I can now confidentially walk her off leash and trust her to play well with other dogs, adults, and children. I exhausted multiple other training methods and DTE was able to turn my dog around in only 4 weeks! I highly recommend DTE to anyone that is looking to train their dog to the highest level.

We went from having a puppy who nipped, bit, and and growled at me and my 8 yr old child for 5 weeks, even had the thought maybe we shouldn’t have a dog. Grandpa even called her Cujo. So happy that Evan with DTE walked into our lives, he has made our Athena girl our true Goddess. She makes everyone in my famliy feel so special by the way she minds & comforts us all. Thank you again, Whittaker’s

Pre-pandemic my wife and I were looking for a trainer that could help evaluate and train our dog to become my service dog. Relocating to Charlotte, we had to begin the search again. Luckily we found Dog Training Elite Charlotte. Shawn and his family have been amazing from the beginning, walking patiently through every step of service dog training. They are helping this disabled Veteran to be able to function in public again. I cannot stress how amazing Shawn and his training is for anyone that is looking for puppy training, obedience training or service dog training. Maybe it was by chance that my wife and I didn't find a dog trainer until we moved and found Shawn and Dog Training Elite Charlotte, but we're beyond grateful that this is who is helping us with this new transition in life.

Dog Training Elite Northern Utah are simply the best when it comes to in-home and public dog training. I have worked with other trainers and none have had the results even close to DTENU! I recommend them to anyone who owns a dog, from the biggest to the smallest. Thanks Dog Training Elite Northern Utah for helping my boy Carlos be the goodest of all good boys:)

Highly recommend this team and training methodology. Shawn has been amazing with all of us from day 1. Our 7+ year old Shepard mix has struggled with severe anxiety for his entire life. Shawn was patient and steadfast and built confidence in Rusty that I never imagined would be possible. The training has been amazing, not only for Rusty, but for our whole family. If you are considering training for your furry family member, no matter the age or circumstance, DTE is life changing!

I found Dog Training Elite Charlotte on google. After talking to Shawn, I knew this was the place for my Charlie. Shawn made sure I was comfortable with everything as well. I am so impressed with how well behaved Charlie has been since he spent a week with Dog Training Elite Charlotte. Shawn and his family was amazing with Charlie. I can’t say enough about how great my experience was with this family. I drove over three hours (from WV) and it was worth every mile.
