A new puppy is a great addition to the family. With the proper care and training, you'll have a loyal, obedient pal for many years to come. It can be tempting to fawn over your cute new pet for weeks on end, wanting to enjoy the puppy months while they last. It's important, however, to begin training as soon as possible. The earlier your dog begins learning commands, the easier he will be to train and the better he will behave. Dog Training Elite offers quality puppy training in your local area. Our puppy training program consists of two phases, early puppy training and advanced training. Puppies as young as 8 weeks can begin learning with Dog Training Elite.

Puppy Training FAQs
If you would like to learn more about our puppy training program in your local area, feel free to contact us today. Below are the answers to some common questions we receive about our puppy training program:
1. What are the phases of the puppy training program?
We accept puppies as young as 8 weeks old. Puppies this young are still able to learn, but their training must occur in short bursts to ensure optimal results. Phase 1 is for younger puppies and is defined by treat-training. Our trainers will teach your puppy basic commands, prompted by treats. Once your puppy has reached 12 weeks, more involved training can take place and treats will be removed from the program.
2. What will my puppy learn?
- Down / Lay
- Place / Bed
- Heel (no leash pulling)
- Off (the couch, bed, etc.)
Your trainer will also give you tips for housebreaking and crate training. If your puppy shows signs of aggression or anxiety, the training program will be adjusted to address these issues.
3. Can I participate in the training?
Yes! At Dog Training Elite, we use in-home training programs. This encourages a healthy bond between owner and pet and helps you participate more fully in your pet's life. In-home training provides better results than obedience classes as your puppy feels more comfortable in his own environment.
4. Do you use shock collars in your training program?
No, we never use shock collars in any training program. Instead, we use gentle vibration electronic collars that do not hurt or startle your pet. Our training programs are based on the Pavlovian model, or positive-reinforcement.

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.

PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
