Our Positive Dog Training Method
in Omaha

At Dog Training Elite Omaha, our dog training method is different. We focus on positive reinforcement paired with a personalized, in-home approach. This will empower you as the owner to be an integral part of the process for sustained dog obedience training in Omaha.

Our approach is based on positive reinforcement. We help you and your dog achieve sustained, deep-rooted obedience.

We do not use punishments or shock collars. We pair positive reinforcement training with an electronic collar for superior results. An electronic collar is not a shock collar and does not harm the dog but is used to gain the dog's attention, just as you would with the tug of a leash. It is never used as a punishment for bad behavior.

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.

Personalized Dog Training


Most dog training programs train the dog at their own facilities. They require minimal involvement from the owner and once the dog returns home the problem behaviors return as well. With our Omaha in-home dog trainers, we personalize the training to you and your dog for long-lasting success.

The entire family can, and should, be involved as obedience can be undone as soon as training is disrupted by any one individual. Our comprehensive approach will be customized to you and your family to prevent loss of obedience.

Dog Training Elite has top in-home dog trainers in Omaha that can personalize a training program to fit your needs.

Dog Training Elite provides expert in-home dog training in Omaha that targets environment specific training needs.

Environment Specific Training


Because your dog's behaviors are specific to his or her surroundings, our trainers work with you and your dog in the environment that behavior occurs. Our in-home dog trainers in Omaha provide a balanced and comprehensive approach working alongside dog owners to create strong bonds and sustained obedience.

Training takes time, commitment, and balance. Dog Training Elite will be there every step of the way, to help you and your dog achieve sustained, deep-rooted obedience.

Bob has done a great job training our dog Remy to be a service dog. Bob does one on one instruction as well as group classes. He also provides a veteran/military discount.

I was a bit apprehensive at first, but Bob quickly put my mind and heart at ease. The in home trainings have been foundational…with good results. Bob is a natural. He understands my dog’s temperament and works to create a connection. Briggs and I experienced our first group class last week. It was a well run class and well worth our time. There is real value in the group classes he offers! There is no hesitation in my recommendation of DTE Omaha!

Bob is absolutely incredible! He is very kind and patient, not just with the dog but with us humans who get the training too! I have noticed a HUGE difference in my HUGE Bernese Mountain Dog and it’s all thanks to this training course and the classes we’ve taken. Bernie and family are all happy!

I contacted Bob and Lyris after Ziggy and I got into a car accident. Ziggy became very fearful about getting into a car. With the help of Bob and Lyris, Ziggy loves to get back into the car once again for rides. I cannot say enough great things about Bob and Lyris. They have helped me train Ziggy into a great dog that listens to commands and they care about every dog they train. Thank you Bob and Lyris

I highly recommend Bob with Dog Training Elite! Milo and Cooper loved working with him and felt so much more comfortable because the trainings were held at our own house. They are so much better behaved in all ways and I am so thankful for everything that Bob has done! If you have ever considered dog training, 10/10 recommend Dog Training Elite!

Bob has done a great job not only training our mini Aussie Beau, but also training my wife and I how to handle Beau. Before our first session Beau wasn’t able to interact with people or dogs without barking or fearful aggression, but he has had a drastic improvement and we are very proud of his progress. Would definitely recommend Bob and Lyris of Dog Training Elite to anyone who is having difficulty or behavioral issues with their dog! Our friends and family have even verbalized the improvement in our dog’s behavior! We also enjoy the socialization Beau gets during group class on Saturdays!

Thanks to Bob, my puppy turned into the most well behaved dog and has been the sweetest lovebug. We went from him dragging me on walks to healing. He used to jump on everyone and now he knows his manners! Dog Training Elie has been the biggest God send and they are worth every penny!!!

Bob Wiegand is the BEST! We were at our wit's end trying to train our dog, Nova, ourselves. Bob knew exactly what was wrong and how to turn it around. Nova's a different dog now. She's much happier doing her job and follows commands as we progress through the course. Thank you, Bob, for your compassion, your skills and your confidence in our family and in Nova. - Ruth, Sarah, Tim

I cannot say enough good things about Bob and Lyris. I have two Australian Shepherds who have a lot of energy, anxiety, loved to bark and were not good on walks. I can happily say that these boys are completely different dogs in all ways. Bob and Lyris truly care about my dogs, their continued success as well as our success as owners. If you are looking to train a new puppy or even just refine some behavior of your dog, please contact Bob and they will go above and beyond to ensure you see the desired results. The best part, the training happens right in the comfort of your own home so that your dogs are comfortable and safe. Thank you Bob and Lyris!!!!

Bob and Lyris make up an incredible team, and are so vastly intelligent. They have helped us understand our dogs Milo and Cooper and become better dog parents. They no longer bark at passing neighbors/cars, and can take them on walks with us. Thank you for being such a bright light.

Dog Training Elite has been wonderful to work with! We loved the free in home estimate where Bob got to meet our Ally and walk through exactly what we wanted to work on and his plan to accomplish it. We completed our 6 sessions and couldn't be happier in the progress we've seen with our dog. Bob is very easy to talk to and does a great job explaining to us the "why" behind dogs do what they do, in addition to, how to correct the behavior. He was very knowledgeable and loving with Ally! Definitely recommend!

I can’t say enough positive things about our experience with Dog Training Elite! Bob is experienced, insightful, and truly in tune with animal behavior. He helped take our stubborn, no-personal-space Aussie and turned him into a well-behaved, socialized dog who knows boundaries and respects them. Mav is still completely himself but walks and home life are much more pleasant now! I know longer have to fear getting pulled down the street when he sees a dog on a walk or fear him jumping on visitors. It is obvious how much Bob cares for animals and desires to create a harmonious relationship for people and their pets. We will be bringing any future dogs right to Dog Training Elite to start them off on the right foot!

Everything was as expected. Great training and wonderful handling of my puppy. We got compliments from people about how well Benji minded and even heeled with the 5 year old granddaughter. He stayed with her when she was running. Stopped at street corners. It was wonderful to get told they couldn't believe he wasn't pulling her with his lease.

Bob is truly an amazing dog training! My dog was an out of control fun loving, over bearing, jumping dog, that could not settle down and meeting new people and it was extremely embarrassing. Bob trained our oversized, sweet Bernedoodle how to be a polite, well mannered, fun loving, enjoyable dog!! The change is amazing. We absolutely enjoy him now and love taking him out in public and on long walks. He is so well behaved and loves playing with other dogs. Thank God for Bob and DTE training!

We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Bob and Dog Training Elite. Our large-breed puppy used to pull on walks, jump up on people, and run away from us when trying to get her inside. Now walks are a dream and I don’t worry about her jumping up or dragging me by the leash. I feel confident about taking her places and actually enjoy our walks now. Bob is professional, friendly, and so easy to work with. Our dog loves him and responds really well to his correction and guidance. Having a well-trained dog has made a huge difference in our home. If you have a dog, they deserve to be trained and you and your family will enjoy the benefits of a well-trained dog for years to come.
