Many dog owners express frustration when their dog returns from obedience school and remains less than obedient. While obedience school trainers may be able to teach your dog simple commands like "sit", "roll over", and "come," proper, thorough training is best done at home with the owner. Each dog is unique and has its own set of temperament issues and learning curve.

With in-home dog training, trainers can really get to know your dog and his environment. There are often particular issues - like chasing the mailman, or barking at the neighbor's cat - that wouldn't be observed in an out-of-home setting. Bringing a professional dog trainer into your home allows the trainer to address your dog's particular issues, creating a personalized and successful training experience.

In-home dog trainers can address a variety of issues, like:

  • Housebreaking
  • Leash pulling
  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Ignoring commands
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping on people
  • Destructive behaviors

While our professional dog trainers will be taking the lead, you, and any other family members that interact with your dog, will be a part of the training process as well. In home dog training empowers you as the owner and helps you build a positive relationship with your dog. Trainers can teach you training tricks that uniquely address your dog's personality.

Benefits of Hiring an In Home Dog Trainer

Searching for a professional dog trainer can be stressful. At Dog Training Elite, we understand that you want the best for your best friend and our goal is to ensure all training experiences are positive for you and your furry friend. We never use shock collars or punishments; our training method focuses on positive reinforcement, which has proven success. We combine this positive reinforcement with an electrical vibration collar for optimal results. The vibration collar is not a shock collar nor does it cause pain - it is used to get your dogs attention, like the tug of a leash.

As an established dog training franchise, we have various local locations that are staffed with experienced professional dog trainers ready to assist you and your pet. In addition to basic obedience issues, our trainers are experienced in service dog training, therapy dog training, and any other specialized training your pup may need. If you are looking for in home dog trainers in {fran_territroy_name}, then look no further than Dog Training Elite. Give us a call today to schedule your first in-home consultation.

I cannot recommend DTE highly enough. I got my dog (first dog I've ever had) Stevie in May of last year. He started off really good but as he got older started developing some SERIOUS behavioral problems. He was picking fights with much bigger dogs and getting hurt and he also BIT MY FACE. I was so frustrated and didn'...

Hired them to train our dog and couldn't be more happy with the results. Neal and Chris were both wonderful to work with, listened to any concerns or questions we had, and never rushed through a lesson. Even at group classes, they paid as much attention to each dog and owner and their needs as if each person was the on...

I thought I had made a terrible mistake after adopting my 80 pound, Leonberger puppy. He was destroying my home and yard. He wouldn't come to me when called and he was terrible to walk. Being such a strong dog made it impossible for me to handle him. Aiden, my trainer, worked miracles with him. He is a great dog tr...

Before purchasing our puppy, I read many training books and I thought I knew how to train her. However, our puppy didn’t do what the books said she would.

All due respect, i start a pup like a pup, the nature of the dog you get, and the breeds used have genetic predisposition and habitual behaivor comes easy.
