We adopted a 4 yr old 86lb labradoodle this past summer. Trevor had been abandoned by his first family. He was full of love but had no boundaries! I was walking through downtown Greenville about 3 months ago and passed by 2 gorgeous golden retrievers taking place on a statue. I turned around and saw Danny, the trainer, from a distance. I asked, “are you a dog trainer?” I called Dog Elite the next day. Hands down, THE BEST investment we have made. Trevor has soared in his training! The dog we swore would ruin our home and maybe our marriage has become an absolute delight! Danny, Casey, McKenzie and Sydney are knowledgeable, easy to work with and crave to see success with your pet. We did the in home program which helped us in our own environment. Thank you Dog Elite! Trevor has manners and boundaries now! We are a MUCH happier family.

This dog training program was life-changing for us and our dog Maple. Maple's main issue was recall. We would spend an hour just trying to catch her at a dog park to leave. We were skeptical at first because we felt we had tried everything and we didn't think anything would improve her recall but we were pleasantly surprised. After 6 home visits with Dog Training Elite, Maple is like a whole new dog. She gets more confident everyday, she will come, place, sit, stay, and heel. This experience has given us more peace of mind and her more freedom. Huge thank you to Mackenzie and Sydney for all they did for us and Maple. They were so professional and kind and we could tell they enjoy what they do. We can't wait to bring Maple to group classes. Thank you Dog Training Elite!

Dog training elite is absolutely amazing. Each of the trainers were always so excited to work with Nala. They were very supportive and wanted Nala and myself to be successful. Always had quick and helpful responses to texts. 100% would recommend to anyone who wants to train their dog. Worth every penny. Nala was so happy when she graduated obedience training.

I have experienced multiple ways to train my dogs. With my two now, a Border Collie and GSD, I wanted to try something different in order to work on unique training needs. My Border Collie was having behavioral issues and my GSD was just a puppy still, he's trained but needs help with distractions. I reached out to DTE to have a different experience, instead of a formal training or boarding. I was intrigued by DTE because they explained to me of having multiple options. We did day boarding camp, where you got to drop off and pick up your dog, so you still got to bond nightly, then we did in home training and we are soon starting group training. Day boarding allows the trainers to focus on your dog then teach you what they learned, and you know they are working your dog as they only have a handful of dogs at the facility that time. In home is nice because you are able to have your normal day to day distractions and environments, allowing the dog to feel comfortable but also know they need to execute the task at hand. My GSD loves to bark at the neighbors dog and we were training while the dog was out, giving him that big distraction and getting corrected in real time. The other benefit of in home is the DTE trainers bring their own dogs, allowing a new unique dog to be added to the mix. My Border Collie is not good with other dogs coming up on him in public, so we were able to experience that in a walking scenario to work through real life actions. After a few weeks of working my border collie with other dogs and his brother the GSD i have seen his anger issues calm, he is realizing whos the boss and he doesn't have to have a chip on his shoulder. We are soon starting group classes to continue training. Still more to work on with both but because you get so many sessions in your package we will be continuung our training in the weeks to come. DTE is not just the cookie cutter classes or experience, if you want to work with a team that cares and is willing to work with you and your dog this is the team to use.

We got our sweet Bella at 5 months old. She came with high anxiety and no manners having her mom die at 3 weeks old and living most of her time outside with her large litter. Our vet recommended Elite and we are so happy we did it. Bella is a very different dog who continues to gain confidence every day and with each new experience we expose her to. She is well mannered and has become the pup we knew she could be. Jared and each trainer are so very knowledgeable and caring with each dog they train. We are excited to continue in group classes for the next 6 months.

DTE has been a wonderful experience! We needed help with excessive puppy biting that did not end at the 6-month mark, resource guarding, and pulling on the lead. DTE helped us with all of these things and more. All of the trainers are wonderful with dogs and humans! Their communication was excellent! They were always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend them!

I can not say enough great things about Dog Training Elite - Upstate SC! They worked wonders with, Riley, our high energy and uncontrollable dog that had developed bad habits like opening the dishwasher to reach food on the counter! Jared, Mackenzie, Danny and Sydney are amazing instructors. They were all professional and personable and made us feel at ease leaving our baby with them all day! At the end of each day they gave us a summary from the day and videos of her performing the new commands. Riley has learned so much in just 1 week of training and the behavior changes are amazing!

The training with this group was amazing and life changing for our dog and our lives with him. We learned so many important details about how to handle our dog and about dogs’ behavior. We hope to go on to have him become a therapy dog. DTEU exceeded our expectations and all of the personnel were so knowledgeable and professional. We are so pleased and grateful to DTEU!!! Liz Jones

Our therapy dog, Bear, has been a wonderful addition to our office. He wouldn’t be able to bring so many people joy if he didn’t have manners… Thank you Dog Training Elite for our training experience very effective- and fun for both of us!

We were going to be first time dog owners, so I asked for a recommendation from some friends and landed here at Dog Training Elite Upstate. I absolutely love all of the trainers here and it has been such a great experience. I did the whole den package which was so helpful as it helped us understand our dog and how to work with him. After, I got the gold package to keep the momentum going and it has been a game changer. I am able to walk with my dog off leash around our property and it has helped us with bad puppy behaviors. Everyone has always been so nice and helpful, answering all of my crazy dog mom questions. I HIGHLY recommend this company. They are wonderful.

We love our Bernedoodle but his barking and antisocial behavior was putting a real damper on our life. After only a few sessions with the trainers at Dog Elite, it was like we had a new dog.! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? He is 6 years old and his behavior has turned around dramatically. The trainers have us invaluable information and advice. I’s rate them 50 stars if it was available. I wish we had found them sooner. Worth every penny!!!

They did a wonderful job of instructing both myself and my dog. Loved working with them and watching my dog grow in her obedience. They can be a bit pricey, but I thought it was worth the cost.

Everyone at DTE was great ! Daisy was a little more dog than what I expected when I got her. Should have done my research. Jared helped so much with her. I can't thank everyone enough.

My dog Miller was one of the most anxious and disobedient dog I think they’ve had in awhile. The patience and care and love the team showed for him while also obtaining amazing results was mind blowing. Every single person on the team was extremely nice and the information they give you on how the training is going is much more detailed than I thought was even possible. Thanks again!
