Basic Obedience Dog Training from Dog Training Elite any breed, any size, any age!

One of our most popular training services is to teach basic obedience. This includes both in-home training sessions and group classes for a more advanced approach.

We believe in using ongoing praise to encourage good behavior. The difference becomes clear when comparing a dog that is trained out of fear and intimidation vs a dog who truly desires to please from the inside out.

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!

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!!!

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...

Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (aka "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In it's simplest form (after proper conditioning) -- when the owner says 'sit', dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter the 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 household.
  • Simplified & Customized

    We plan training around owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training

    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment

    We follow-up & are invested in owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings

    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.
