Have you sent your dog to multiple training camps or obedience schools, yet still don’t see the results you expect? This a common experience of dog owners - puppy goes to obedience school and returns less than obedient. While obedience school trainers can teach your dog basic commands like “come,” “lay,” and “sit,” thorough training will not be successful outside of the dog’s home. Each animal is different and therefore has unique temperament issues, learning curves, and particularities. Successful dog training is best achieved with an in home dog trainer your local area.

Dog Training Elite is the last dog trainer you’ll ever need!

Everyone has been super nice with helping me understand what will be best for my dogs issues.

Neil and especially Ilara (Gavin and Lexi too) have been phenomenal. Never knew I could be so happy with our Belgian Malinois as much as I am. We were warned about how hard it is with Malis, but DTE has trained us and Kona and we are grateful. Excited and can't wait for the next level. EVERY K9 NEEDS THIS.

I contacted this group because my German shepherd was impossible. I had decided to rehome her. But with the help of my wonderful trainer, the dog was transformed! She comes when called, heels, waits at doorways, and many other things. Wonderful! And the dog is happier and enjoys working with me.

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.

People were super nice and answered my questions

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...
