Epilepsy is a common disorder, affecting approximately 3.4 million Americans. Living with epilepsy can be difficult for many individuals. Due to fear of falling or other consequences related to seizures, many epileptic individuals will avoid going out in public. This greatly reduces quality of life and independence. Fortunately, service dogs can be trained to assist those with epilepsy. A Medical Response Dog is able to alert their caretaker and anyone nearby of an imminent seizure and protect their caretaker from injury or falling. The Americans with Disabilities Act allows individuals with disabilities, such as epilepsy, to bring service dogs anywhere with them in public spaces. The assistance of a Medical Response Dog can empower those with epilepsy and increase their quality of life.

Dogs have the ability to detect changes in an individual’s smell right before an epileptic attack, which allows them to effectively warn their caretakers. Almost any dog can be trained to act as a Medical Response Dog if they have the right temperament. If you or a loved one suffer from epilepsy, a Medical Response Dog training program can be life changing. Dog Training Elite offers a specialized Medical Response Dog training program in Las Vegas.

The Medical Response Dog Training Program in Las Vegas


For specialized training, it is best to start with puppies. Our Medical Response Dog training program is intensive and prepares your dog for a life of service. Service dogs must have a calm temperament and they must be first trained in obedience. Dogs that have aggressive, shy, or disobedient characteristics cannot be service dogs. After completing obedience programs, service dogs must undergo specialized skill training. An expert evaluation will determine whether or not the dog is suited for medical alert services at this point. If so, they dog will be trained to detect oncoming seizures and warn the epileptic individual. Medical Response Dogs warn their caretakers in various ways, including: barking, close eye contact, pawing or licking, and or circling. Additional behaviors can be taught to protect the caretaker, such as breaking a fall by standing behind the individual, turning on lights or opening doors, and alerting others to the situation.

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.

We help your dog become a valued companion and beloved member of the family. Read what our customers have to say and then give us a call!

Colin and Celeste are great! Very upbeat and positive, and it is obvious that they love what they do. I've had the pleasure of working with them recently and would highly recommend them.

Nick and Bry with DTE we’re so wonderful with our dog Apollo. He is a high energy dog that required much more training than we could offer and they were able to provide that. They were professional, polite and took care with both us and our dog to ensure we felt comfortable and confident with their training. Thank you so much! Would highly recommend them to anyone!

Excellent company! Nick helped train our puppy to do basic commands. He taught my entire family (and puppy) to be patient and consistent. It worked! We’ve hired him again to teach more advanced skills. Nick has been very flexible with our busy schedules. I highly recommend this company.

Dog Training Elite + the owners Nick and Bryanna were AMAZING. My dogs used to misbehave and would not listen to us well and we had just about had it… we found DTE through word of mouth and couldn’t be happier with the tips & tricks they taught our pups. Thank you guys! Would highly recommend to anyone with a furry companion!
