One of the most difficult, necessary, and rewarding behaviors to correct in a dog is anxiety and aggression. Anxiety and aggression are behaviors that can be learned, genetic, or innate. When a dog feels threatened, the two natural responses will be fight or flight. Most dogs will attempt to put as much distance between themselves and the threat; if the threat remains they will then turn to aggression or submit. Other dogs are overly confident pack leaders and will turn first to aggression. Both of these reactions stem from anxiety and can be fixed with a balanced, positive aggressive dog training in Kansas City.

Dog Training Elite Kansas City South behavior modification process is highly personalized. We work to empower owners as they work alongside our professional dog trainers in Kansas City to build confidence and understanding in their dogs. We work with owners in their home to slowly retrain a dog’s reactions to stressful situations and then work to integrate them back into the community.

Our Aggressive Dog Behavior Training Process


We will first meet the dog in a free in-home assessment to gain an understanding of the reasons for the aggression, anxiety, or fears. We will assess triggers and build a personalized training program for each unique dog and targeting their specific behavior. For fearful and anxious dogs, our trainers will work alongside owners to build confidence. 

For overly aggressive dogs, training will help owners establish a pack leader position in the home.  We will work to desensitize a dog to their biggest triggers and anxiety and when the dog has reached a safe baseline obedience level in these situations we then introduce them to our class settings.  A muzzle is required for class settings to ensure the safety of all dogs as these classroom settings are designed to integrate the dog back into social settings successfully.

Dog Training Elite has expert dog trainers near you in Kansas City experienced in anxious and aggressive dog obedience training.

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.

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!
