Epilepsy is a common disorder, affecting approximately 3.4 million Americans. Living with epilepsy can be difficult for many individuals. Due to fear of falling or other consequences related to seizures, many epileptic individuals will avoid going out in public. This greatly reduces quality of life and independence. Fortunately, service dogs can be trained to assist those with epilepsy. A Medical Response Dog is able to alert their caretaker and anyone nearby of an imminent seizure and protect their caretaker from injury or falling. The Americans with Disabilities Act allows individuals with disabilities, such as epilepsy, to bring service dogs anywhere with them in public spaces. The assistance of a Medical Response Dog can empower those with epilepsy and increase their quality of life.

Dogs have the ability to detect changes in an individual’s smell right before an epileptic attack, which allows them to effectively warn their caretakers. Almost any dog can be trained to act as a Medical Response Dog if they have the right temperament. If you or a loved one suffer from epilepsy, a Medical Response Dog training program can be life changing. Dog Training Elite offers a specialized Medical Response Dog training program in Orlando.

The Medical Response Dog Training Program in Orlando


For specialized training, it is best to start with puppies. Our Medical Response Dog training program is intensive and prepares your dog for a life of service. Service dogs must have a calm temperament and they must be first trained in obedience. Dogs that have aggressive, shy, or disobedient characteristics cannot be service dogs. After completing obedience programs, service dogs must undergo specialized skill training. An expert evaluation will determine whether or not the dog is suited for medical alert services at this point. If so, they dog will be trained to detect oncoming seizures and warn the epileptic individual. Medical Response Dogs warn their caretakers in various ways, including: barking, close eye contact, pawing or licking, and or circling. Additional behaviors can be taught to protect the caretaker, such as breaking a fall by standing behind the individual, turning on lights or opening doors, and alerting others to the situation.

If you are looking for a Medical Response Dog training program in Orlando to assist an individual with epilepsy, Dog Training Elite is here to help. Our expert trainers are experienced with various types of service dog training programs. Medical Response service dogs can bring independence, increased quality of love, and companionship.

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.

We help your dog become a valued companion and beloved member of the family. Read what our customers have to say and then give us a call!

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.

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.

I have known Cheyenne and Chelsea for years. They really have a love for dogs and you can tell it by how they interact with their clients and their own fur babies. They are knowledgeable, professional, kind and caring. I highly recommend them.

Cheyenne has always been committed and deeply passionate about being successful in every aspect of her life. I’ve known her a long time and consider her a blessing. For as long as I’ve know gimpy (inside joke) she has always had an overwhelming sense of compassion and genuine love for all animals. Not just dogs. If you’re looking for someone who will take care of and love your fur- babies with as much consideration as you yourself would then she’s the woman you’ve been looking for. A person willing to go that extra mile, take that extra step, just to make sure that everyone can (and if she has anything to say about it- WILL!) have the best experience possible yielding the best results. She strives for perfection and is as I mentioned a stickler for success. :) You can trust Cheyenne, I would anyways. Best of luck and God bless you!
