While dogs are man's best friend, that relationship didn't develop overnight. Creating a strong bond with a dog takes time, patience and lots of training. Dog obedience training is one of the best ways to deepen the bond between dog and owner.

Training a new dog takes a lot of time and effort but the payoff is well worth it. Some dogs may require more training than others due to breed type, past trauma, or just plain stubbornness. However, all dogs can become loyal, friendly and well behaved through dog obedience training with Dog Training Elite in Orlando’s programs, including in-home training!

In-Home Training


Dog Training Elite in Orlando has specialized training courses for both puppies and older dogs. For in-home training, dog trainers will observe dog breed, size, temperament and any other factors that will influence training.

Working with the dog and dog owner directly in an owner’s home, dog trainers will develop a personalized training plan for basic commands like sit, stay, come, heel, etc.; as well as to address any unique issues such as anxiety, aggression, fear and so on. Once a dog is trained, owners can sign their dogs up for group classes with more in-depth training.

Starting with in-home training is an unmatched service that provides dogs and dog owners with the opportunity to work together. Not only does in-home dog obedience training free dogs from the distractions of a group class, but ensuring a dog is learning from both their owner and a trainer will help owners and dogs strengthen their bond. Dogs that learn only from trainers may be inclined to disobey when the trainer is not around. Equally sharing the task of training between dog and dog owner leads to the development of trust and deepening love.

Trainers from Dog Training Elite in Orlando seek to not only help train dogs, but empower owners so they can continue training their dogs in years to come. This includes sharing tips and tricks (treats are always a good thing!), as well as pointing out personality traits and behavior issues dog owners should focus on.

The Dog Training Elite in Orlando Difference

There are numerous dog obedience training methods out there, which can be broken down into three main theories: traditional, modern and balanced.

  1. Traditional training typically relies on punishment for errors, and “low value” rewards such as praise or petting when a dog performs a desired behavior. In recent years traditional training has fallen out of favor.
  2. Modern training, which is more science-based, focuses more on positive reinforcement when a desired behavior occurs and doesn’t worry about correcting bad behavior. This training method has many benefits, including faster learning for dogs, less stress and anxiety for dogs, ability to teach more complex behaviors, and of course, a better experience for dog owners and trainers.
  3. Balanced training theory, while it sounds like the best of both worlds, still incorporates the use of punishment as a training tool.

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.

Dog Training Elite in Orlando is proud to have the highest rated dog obedience trainers in Orlando.

Obedience Training FAQs


The earlier, the better. Puppies are welcome! That being said, old dogs truly can learn new tricks - there is no reason an older dog can’t learn basic commands.

Besides basic commands like sit, stay, heel, etc., dog obedience training can address issues such as chewing, whining or barking, jumping to greet others, and begging for food.

No. Pain or punishment is never used in any form during 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 a dog's attention. It is not a shock collar and does not harm or alarm a pet.

In-home training is necessary because it allows trainers to focus on the particular issues of individual dogs (like terrorizing a pet cat or chasing the mailman). During in-home training sessions trainers also work side by side with owners and any other family members so the dog understands who is in control.

Dog Training Elite in Orlando provides professional and personalized in-home dog obedience training programs in Orlando.

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.

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.
