Dog Training Elite believes so strongly in the healing power of service dogs for retired military veterans that we have created "The Malinois Foundation", we donate our time and passion to training service dogs for the foundation. We also offer a 10% discount to active service members.

Service dogs can help ease both mental and physical impairments attained through a veteran’s service to our country. Many veterans suffer from PTSD, physical disabilities, and a variety of other handicaps. Service dogs have been proven to lessen symptoms and assist in integrating veterans back into normal routines as much as possible.

We have programs and discounts for vetrans!

Benefits of Therapy Dog Training

Research is now showing that therapy dogs can have a positive effect on a patient’s pain levels, mood, and stress levels during facility stays. Children, in particular, respond positively to therapy dogs. They are more motivated to participate in treatments, optimistic about the future and experience an overall calm when a therapy dog is present.

Dog Training Elite Services

Dog Training Elite is passionate and committed to helping our service members heal and progress through service dog work. We offer several veteran service dog training options. Call us today to learn about how service dogs can help improve the lives of veterans. Veterans who have physical disabilities benefit both emotionally and physically from a balance and mobility support dog. They can regain their freedom and independence as well as receiving the emotional support that a service dog can provide. The bond that is created between veterans and their service dogs has enormous healing power and is becoming increasingly popular in the mental health and medical communities as one of the best options for recovery. Military and Retired Vet Service Dogs from Dog Training Elite will help:

  • Increase activity and integration into society.
  • Increase independence.
  • Create a sense of safety.
  • Provide 24/7 companionship and support.
  • Ground in reality, redirect hypervigilance.
  • Reduce the length and intensity of night terrors and flashbacks.

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'...

Called Dog Training Elite (DTE) to get some advice on how to work with my aging dogs on some behavioral issues they were having due to my demanding travel schedule. Aidan scheduled an appointment (on a Saturday) to accommodate my schedule and provided honest, candid feedback and some innovative ideas/strategies on ho...

Dog Training Elite has done a great job of training my service dog. The combination of one-on-one training, group classes and their training techniques have been invaluable! Highly, highly recommend them!
— Jeff D, Posted September 27th 2018 on Google
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...

Neal and Bailey came to my house to meet my 6 month rescue lab mix Elle, and I was FLOORED with the level of obedience, love, companionship and a mutual respect there was. Neal gave commands in a calm normal inside talking voice and Bailey obeyed then from about 50ft + away!!! Elle and I are excited to start our trai...

I took my miniature dachshund to traditional puppy training classes and was disappointed when our home program failed. With months of training under our belt, at 6 months old my dog spent hours a day barking at anything going by, was still having difficulty with potty training and didn’t consistently follow any comma...

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. We couldn’t have kept our dog without Dog Training Elite. Hiring them was money well spent so that we can enjoy our dog for years to come. We appreciate their cu...

Excellent training!! Working with my rescue dog that we have no idea of her history and she has been coming along so quickly! Could not be more pleased with the trainers that have been working with my dog. 4 year old Shepard Mix.

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. At a show advertising a product and how you use it in your training are two different topics, and certainly not grounds to bash these folks with pure nonsense. I ca...

We first saw DTE working at The Phoenix Home Show. I was convinced at that moment, when I was ready for a dog, DTE was going to be my trainer.  I've had eight previous dogs but was never able to get the dogs trained properly.  I've tried group lessons, reading books etc., but working with Neal and Chris at DTE delive...

Neal the owner of dog training elite has done a masterful job training our dogs.  My wife has seizures and needed a service dog to assist her.  He trained the perfect dog (a chocolate lab Ghiraradelli) for my wife and he has been a wonderful help for my wife. We have enjoyed having our dog go with us everywhere and o...

I have to give Neal and his crew much thanks. Rosy, my wife, and I started training with them at the first week of May pretty much as a last resort to get our dog trained on just basic obedience, before thinking about maybe having to take her back to the shelter which we were very hesitant on doing because of what coul...

Our 2 yr old yellow lab Kailani had been to a few trainers and still did not listen to us when there were "distractions" (which is often). She wanted to play with every thing that moved around her (bunnies, other dogs, people walking, kids playing). Neal came for our first session and we saw results immediately. The...

Could not be happier with Dog Training Elite. We have a 3 year old bloodhound that could not leave the house without pulling, howling and acting insane. He also couldn't be around crowds, because he would pull us everywhere. We saw them at the home show and hired a few months later. After only 2 weeks of training we we...

We had our initial consult last week & 1st training session today for our Matli-Poo, Kai.
