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 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 the household.
  • Simplified & Customized
    We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training
    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

I can't not recommend these trainers enough!! I scheduled a free at home consultation with Dog Trainer Elite LA. Clayton showed up promptly at our scheduling session. I was a bit nervous with my dog being selectively reactive to random people and animals. I was unsure how my boy Rey, a staffordshire bull terrier, would react to a visitor. As we don't get very many at all. Of course he barked and sized up the trainer, Clayton, inside our home. I made sure I was vigilant to any signs of aggression. He's so good and obedient with me inside the house. So lovable and cuddly. However, another story when we go outside. I know that it falls under the owner, pack leader, and not so much the animal. I've been working on my communication to best of my ability with my dog. However, the strong pull I could not efficiently master with him. Within minutes, Clayton had him calm and striding close by his side in heel position. We even walked past a usual spot where my dog always nervously reacts to the dogs behind the fence. Clayton effectively controlled the situation and implemented some techniques. Such a difference. I was shocked and overjoyed! As we walked around the block, I then took on the leash and implemented Clayton's instructions. My Rey didn't pull or react like he normally would. I'm so thrilled and overjoyed with Clayton's patience and effective technique. Everything else with my boy is fine. I really appreciate Dog Training Elite LA. I highly recommend them. I will definitely be calling them for advanced obedience in the future. Look at them in action! 🐕‍🦺🧍🏻‍♂️

If you're struggling with leash-pulling, look no further. Dog Training Elite doesn't just train dogs, they educate owners! I spoke on the phone with the owner Jon, to learn a bit about the services they offered and was able to schedule an in-home session the following week. Clayton was the trainer that came to our home and our dog went from a pulling machine to a perfect walking companion in a single session. He also empowered us with the knowledge and skills to continue the training journey. We appreciate this personalized approach and commitment to our dog's long-term success.Thank you Jon, Clayton, and Dog Training Elite!

My Clyde is a timid 9 year old rescue dog. Dog Training Elite showed me you can teach an old dog new tricks. After trying to train her for over a year, I came to realize this was beyond my capabilities. I am so grateful for Jon and Dog Training Elite. He was beyond patient. Not only he trained my dog but also took the time to train me, which was probably even more difficult. I love that they come to you and teach you in your home. Now I get compliments when I take him to places as he is very well behaved. Well worth every penny spent.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Jon to improve the walking experience with my dogs, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Before his guidance, walking my dogs was a constant struggle, with each pulling in different directions and becoming easily distracted by every scent and object on the ground. Jon was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, demonstrating effective techniques to make our walks more enjoyable for both me and my dogs. His gentle approach and clear communication style made the training sessions productive and enjoyable. What impressed me the most was Jon's professionalism and dedication to his craft. He took the time to understand my dogs' unique behaviors and tailored his methods to suit their needs. His genuine love for animals was evident in every interaction, and my dogs responded positively to his guidance. Thanks to Jon, walking my dogs has become a pleasurable experience rather than a dreaded chore. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of professional dog training.
