Dog Obedience Training
Obedience commands are the foundation for every well trained dog. At Dog Training Elite, we have a two step obedience program to ensure a successful training regime. Beginning with an in-home observance of your dog and private training sessions, we ensure that your dog understands all basic obedience commands and that you are the one who is control. After completion of the in-home training sessions, your dog will participate in group classes which exposes him to training in a distracting environment. The Dog Training Elite dog obedience training program is comprehensive and will leave you with a pup that is loyal, loving, and 100% obedient!
FAQs of our Dog Obedience Training Program
If you are interested in enrolling your dog for our obedience training program, but still have some questions, read the answers to our most commonly asked questions below!
- What age can my dog begin obedience training?
Dog Training Elite trains dogs of “any breed, any size, any age!” Obedience training is best completed as soon as possible, and we happily take puppies into our classes. But don’t fret if you have an older dog that never received proper training, there is still hope! We can teach basic obedience commands no matter the breed, size, or age of your dog.
- What issues will obedience training address?
We will address any particular behavioral issues and teach your dog to respond to the following commands:
- Place / Bed
- Heel (no leash pulling)
- Off (the couch, bed, etc.)
- Do you use shock collars?
No, we never use pain or punishment in any form during our training programs. A combination of positive reinforcement and an electronic collar has proven to be 100% successful. The electronic collar produces a gentle “tug” to get your dog's attention. It is not a shock collar and does not harm or alarm your pet.
- Why is in-home training a necessary part of the obedience program?
In-home training is necessary because it allows our trainers to focus on the particular issues of your dog (like terrorizing your pet cat or chasing the mailman). During the in-home training sessions we will also work side by side with you and any other family members so your dog understands who is in control.

Our Balanced Theory
We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.
Empowering OwnersWe empower owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
SupportiveWe support owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
InvolvedWe work with all members of the household.
Simplified & CustomizedWe plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
Continued TrainingAdditional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
Lifetime InvestmentWe follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
