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.

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, then look no further than Dog Training Elite. Give us a call today to schedule your first in-home consultation.

Dog Training Elite is a great business whom are very professional, reliable, and friendly. They’ve done an awesome job training our German Shepard to be a service dog. Myself and my GSD love attending the group classes with other dogs. Would recommend to anyone from basic training to more advanced training.

We decided to put our dog through their service training program and it’s the best decision we’ve ever made and I wish we would have done it sooner. They are super hands on and not only train your dog, they teach YOU how too. Which is something I realize a lot of people need. They have given us the tools to succeed...

I went to Dog Training Elite at the end of my rope with my German Shepherd who's highly reactive to new dogs and strangers. After working with her in their training program, she can now walk alongside new dogs without reacting to them at all. Whenever we went on walks and encountered another dog, I used to have to stop...

I sought out Neal and DTE to help a friend with her two unruly, large dogs. I personally attended the training sessions and saw Neal, Gavin and Lexi expertly and lovingly handle and train them. I was so impressed, I bought the gold package for my own two rescue dogs, ages 7 and 5. Neal and his trainers clearly LOVE d...

So thankful that I found Dave and Whitley. My previous trainer seemed to not know how to train my pup or get his attention which was frustrating. I sought to find a trainer that could not only train him but be understanding of his hip dysplasia since he is still young (8 months old). Whitley has experience with young d...

A year ago I had training sessions with Dog Training Elite that changed our lives. My dog is an 8 lb poodle mix and had become a “runner” and had also developed some fears of other dogs. Their training drastically changed the relationship I have with my dog. In just a few sessions she learned so many commands an...

Trevor far exceded expectations with our boxer. We did a board and train session where Brody spent 4 days with at Trevor’s house. He came back a new dog. Trevor has also reached out a few times after to make sure Brody is doing well. Thanks Trevor, Emma and DTE!!

Dog Training Elite San Antonio, Whitley and her team, are fabulous!!!! We needed a service dog for my daughter. I knew nothing about how to go about that. I contacted Dog Training Elite and they walked me through their process and gave us recommendations for breed and age. We went with their breeder recommendation a...

They are absolutely amazing! They have trained 2 of our dogs, one of which they trained and tested as a service dog! They worked with me on payments we could afford. Everyone always comments on how well behaved my dogs are! I would and have recommend them to everyone!

We are working with Dog Training Elite to train a service dog for our 10 year old son. They have been professional, knowledgeable, and have supported us every step of the way. They have exceeded our expectations by far and we highly recommend them to any family looking to train a service dog.

The BEST dog training EVER!!! I tried other dog trainers, before I tried Whitley and Dave and none of the other trainers worked. In fact, my dog's behavior was getting worst. Within the first week of working with Whitley and Dave, I could see improvements! It's now been seven months, and my dog is now my Servic...

I have been working with DTE for many months now and I am beyond grateful to have found them. You will not find better or more kind trainers around. They are always happy to help with questions, and have worked around a number of unforeseen health issues with my dog to ensure I have a trained service dog. If I could gi...

I thought I was ready for our pup! May not have continued to be a dog owner with Aidan and Dog Training Elite! They are the best!

Dog Training Elite saved two of my dogs from getting put down. My first Belgian Malinois was human and dog aggressive. He wouldn't show any warning signs, he would just go and attack. I had Neal come out for the free in-home evaluation as a last resort (I either had to find a trainer that would be able to help him or w...

Neal is amazing! If you want your dog to be the best this company is the way to go! They have a lot of experience with Malinois and service dogs. 100% recommended

Today my dog, Little Ann, graduated from service dog training. She has come so far in this program and she has really helped me. Whitley and Melanie are amazing people who are amazing with dogs.
