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 20 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.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

Dog Training Elite Kansas City South help me train my Service Dog Bandit! They do such a wonderful job of teaching the handler what to do so that the dog responses to them. I loved that they came to our home for the beginning of the training, which allowed my wife to be part of the process. They go above and beyond to help you train.

Our training with Misha our boarder collie could not have been more worth it. She is a completely new dog, listens well which is a huge plus for her. Now we can take her out and play with her in our field without fear of her taking off. All of the trainers were awesome to work with and the group Saturday trainings are definitely a must do. All the dogs have so much fun that morning. They get to show off their skills.

We have a grand dog that was hard to deal with and it was very hard to go for a walk. She is so smart, a shepherd mix and would just drag us around. After the training with Hailey our grand dog is a joy to walk. Thank you Hailey and Dog Training Elite! We have a better minding grand dog than we ever expected.

Kc Dogs Training Elite is a wonderful company! They do free in home consultations and are well worth the money. My service dog is very well behaved because of them and we still get to go to group class weekly despite our other training being completed. They are also very friendly and professional. I've recommended them to many people who ask about my dogs good behavior.

Chuck and his team have been great working with me and my Rottweiler to overcome her reactivity to people and dogs while on leash. We recently completed the in home training and are now in group classes. Seeing my pup overcoming her fear and gaining confidence each week is very exciting. I have been through a lot of positive reinforcement training but have seen much better results with Dog training elite and a much quicker pace.

Our pup needed a little refreshing of training after many changes that happened in the last couple of years. He was constantly anxious and never knew who to listen to because all of his humans in his life were saying different things. After just ONE session of training, he was like a brand new dog! He had more confidence, listened better, and was less anxious. After every training he just got even better! My husband and I also learned a lot throughout the time too and they did such a good job at explaining the “why” behind things and answering any questions we had! It was such a good experience and worth every penny! :)

Chuck and Cat are a fantastic team and were wonderful to work with. They are active members of the community and passionate about providing a quality service and improving lives of Dogs and their owners in Kansas City. They truly care about getting results and they are extremely personable yet professional and focused. I continue to keep in touch with them and hope that maybe Chuck will take me fishing one day now that the dogs will be very well behaved on the boat! I wish I could give 10 stars, highly recommend!

Such a fantastic experience, watching our pup, Bunny, grow week after week! We are so grateful to be a part of the Dog Training Elite KCS Family! It is such a relief to feel like we are able to enjoy our fur child anywhere we go; instead of feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and embarrassed trying to get her to mind. We are still in process of training, but the progress at just week 7 is mind blowing. I applaud the clear communication, demonstration, constructive criticisms, and support these trainers provide. Any trainer can train your dog, but a top of the line trainer will teach you how to train your dog and provide support... Dog Training Elite KCS has clearly shown they have TOP OF THE LINE Trainers. 100% will Recommend and we will use them again with our next pup!
