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 OwnersWe empower Owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
SupportiveWe support Owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
InvolvedWe work with all members of the household.
Simplified & CustomizedWe plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
Continued TrainingAdditional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
Lifetime InvestmentWe follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.

Meet Our Team
I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2017. After being presented a job opportunity in 2017, I decided to take a leap of faith to pursue a new career just shortly after graduating with my degree in Business Marketing. After 5 long years in the corporate world, I have decided it is time to make a change for the better. Starting my journey with Dog Training Elite has already brought my family and me so much joy, I can only imagine what the future has in store for us. I find it fascinating how intelligent dogs can be and how even a little bit of training can go a long way. We love taking our dog, Kaden, everywhere we go and our dream is to give that gift to other families around us.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I grew up playing soccer and started working in the food and beverage industry right out of high school. Over the past 5 years I have worked as Human Resources in a more corporate environment along side of my husband. I look forward to making this drastic career change with my husband to not only better our lives, but those around us and in our community. With our passion for animals, I believe it’s going to be a true privilege getting to spend most of our days enhancing the lives of dogs all around us.

Dogs are no longer only guardians or accessories for people. They often become valued family members. Empowering dog owners with proper training to enhance their daily interactions with their pets is beneficial to the dog as well as the owner.
