Golden Retrievers have been the classic family dog for years and rank as one of the top five breeds in America. These smart, loyal, friendly dogs make great companions. Not only do they have a gentle and fun-loving nature that makes them ideal for families with kids, they are also capable and intelligent working dogs.

Golden Retrievers are not at all aggressive. They can be great with other pets if given a proper introduction, but their lack of aggression doesn’t make them great as guard dogs.

Dog Training Elite in Orlando has years of experience with both Golden Retriever training and Golden Retriever puppy training. Dog Training Elite in Orlando puppy training, obedience and therapy animal training programs are well-suited for Golden Retrievers.

Because of their eager-to-please nature and intelligence, Golden Retriever puppies are relatively easy to train. Dog Training Elite in Orlando will help owners develop a strong bond with their new Golden Retriever puppy and harness all the wonderful qualities of the breed.

Dog Training Elite offers professional Golden Retriever puppy training near you in Orlando.
Training a Golden Retriever Puppy

Dog Training Elite in Orlando recommends starting dog training as early as possible. Puppies are capable of learning basic commands. Smart Golden Retriever puppies do great with early training.

Complete Golden Retriever puppy training typically takes a few months. Dog Training Elite in Orlando offers specialized in-home training. Working with a Golden Retriever puppy and the owner directly in the home prevents puppies from being distracted and allows dog trainers to create personalized training plans for individual puppies, as well as address any unique needs or issues. Once a puppy has completed in-home training, Dog Training Elite in Orlando offers puppy group classes for further training.

Beginning Golden Retriever training in the home also helps owners bond with their pup so when the dog trainer leaves, no progress is lost. It’s important for owners to stay consistent with puppy training and continue it long term.

Training can be great mental stimulation, so a great exercise for Golden Retrievers as they get older is progressing their training. Once your puppy has mastered sitting, for example, train them to maintain the position until released. Once your puppy is a bit older, explore other sports and activities.

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.

Golden Retriever Specific Tips Exercise


Golden Retrievers are considered “sporting dogs” and require at least an hour of daily exercise. True to their name, Golden Retrievers love retrieving things! Golden Retrievers can even participate in obedience and agility events, and they’ll enjoy every minute of it.

A Golden Retriever puppy that doesn’t get enough exercise is likely to develop bad behaviors like digging or chewing. During the first two years of a Golden Retriever’s life, however, make sure to take it easy with exercise as their growth plates are still forming - don’t go for long, strenuous runs or hikes until the dog is fully grown and try to always opt for grass instead of concrete.

Golden Retriever Specific Tips Weight Management


Golden Retrievers can easily become overweight so owners will need to help manage their food intake. Measure out food twice a day instead of “free-feeding” and give treats in moderation.

Golden Retriever Specific Tips Make it a Family Affair


If you have adopted a Golden Retriever puppy to become part of a family, make sure all kids and adults are on the same page with training and all practice basic tricks with the family dog.

Dog Training Elite in Orlando has developed training programs for puppies and adult dogs alike based on positive reinforcement. German Shepherd training with our in-home option is entirely possible. Read on to learn more about the Dog Training Elite in Orlando training method.

Golden Retriever Specific Tips Be Consistent


Establish house rules for your dog, and then stick to them. If you choose not to let your dog on the couch, don’t ever let them on the couch for any reason. Golden Retriever training can help you establish routines and learn how to be consistent about enforcing them.

The Dog Training Elite
Difference

Dog Training Elite in Orlando uses modern training methods focused on positive reinforcement and bonding between dog and dog owner. Dog Training Elite in Orlando never resorts to the use of punishment to help dogs unlearn bad behavior. The difference becomes clear when comparing a dog that is trained out of anxiety and intimidation vs a dog who truly desires to please from the inside out.

The Dog Training Elite in Orlando training theory is mostly based around classical conditioning, also known as the Pavlovian method or respondent conditioning. This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when an owner says "sit," their dog automatically sits without thinking about it.

Through a combination of commands and an electronic collar, dogs learn to follow commands at once. The electronic collar is not a shock collar; it is a gentle electronic pulse, similar to the tug of a leash, used to get the dog’s attention. Other dog trainers use harsh static collars or spray collars which have been shown to be less effective. Dog Training Elite in Orlando’s method of focusing on positive behavior reinforcement nurtures a dog's loving and naturally obedient nature.

After the unexpected loss of my 10 year old son’s service dog, we were in desperate need of a trainer with not only experience, but compassion, patience and love of what they do fast. Craig and his team showed up and more than delivered. They were great working with my son in a way he was comfortable handling and training his puppy while respecting his medical and special needs boundaries. They identified the dogs natural instincts and used them to bolster his training. With each training session my son became more confident in his ability and the puppy conquered a new task/command. DTE made sure we had all the tools we needed to be successful between sessions and get the most out of our efforts. We have been so thrilled with DTE we decided to put our other dog through training with them as well. Will be recommending DTE to anyone we know who could also benefit from a trainer.

As an animal lover myself, I understand the need for a safe and professional dog training environment in Central Florida. With his new franchise “Dog Training Elite”, Craig Fizer offers his Clients and their canine friends an opportunity to grow their connection and build their bonds. He recognizes that every Client and dog have various training goals and potential obstacles along the way, which allow Craig to implement his problem solving skills. If you are in need of a true elite experience as the company name says, I encourage you to contact Craig and his Team. You won’t be disappointed by their dedication to customer service and genuine canine care.

I have seen the effectiveness of DTE Orlando's training methods and the positive transformation in the behavior of the dogs they train. Craig and his team genuinely want each owner to have the best possible relationship with their dog so that they can experience all the fun activities and joy that dogs bring to our lives. If you would like to make your dog a bigger part of your lifestyle, I encourage you to contact DTE Orlando.

My wife and I love our rescue dog "Annabelle". We needed a dog training company that would feel the same way. We were NOT disappointed in having Chelsea and Cheyenne as our trainers. They LOVE what they do and are passionate about it. We were extremely pleased with their knowledge, kindness, professionalism and love that they shared with each session they completed. Look NO further than Dog Training Elite for the BEST dog trainers in Orlando.

Cheyenne and Chelsea are absolute angels! I am currently working to train my yellow lab into a service dog, and they have always been there to answer any questions, day or night (even the silly ones!). Their kindness and compassion shines through their experience! I truly believe that I could not have chosen a better team to take on this endeavor with. My pup and I will be forever grateful for everything we have learned with Dog Training Elite Orlando! Thank you!

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND! Not only are they incredibly professional, they are so personable. They take time to get to know the needs and wants and will do anything to work it in properly. They take their time and don’t rush! They also can read when your dog is tired or just done with training and will stop. For some backstory, I needed to get in as much training before i moved to California to train my dog to do well in an apartment. Example: no barking, stomping, scratching. They created an amazing plan on what days to train and taught me how to train her on my own. They leave you with dog training knowledge to keep up and enforce by myself. They answer texts and calls in timely manner and never leave me confused.
