Dog Training Elite Arizona's personal protection dog training process will ensure that a dog's loving and social temperaments are retained as the protection skills are properly developed.

Therapy Animal Training
A Dog Training Elite Arizona facility therapy dog is highly trained to have a positive impact on the health and well being of both individuals and community health.
Phoenix Dog Training Classes
Offered Once Basic Commands are in Place
Reopening In-home & Group Training
Dog Training Elite Arizona has been approved to reopen and resume offering our in-home and group dog training classes in Phoenix. We have reorganized our training programs to fit social distancing and heightened sanitation measures.
Once you and your dog have basic commands in place (meaning your dog will successfully come, sit, stay and obey other basic commands), they are invited to join us for additional training that is highly valuable in further building upon already learned techniques. Our dog training classes in Phoenix are designed to place you and your dog in public places (surrounded by other dogs, people, smells, and sounds), so that you can train your dog to obey you, regardless of the many distractions screaming for their attention!
In order to keep you and our training staff safe and healthy, we ask for your assistance on the following protocols:
In-Home & Office Guidelines
- If you or anyone in your household becomes sick, please inform us immediately. We can cancel and reschedule training sessions at no extra cost.
- Please follow general hygiene guidelines before and after your session, including hand washing.
- Thoroughly clean and disinfect all training tools before and after the session.
- If possible, most of the training session will take place outside - in your backyard or at a nearby park.
Group Class Guidelines
- We are limiting the size of group training sessions, so you must sign up online first. In order to ensure everyone has equal access to training sessions, please do not sign up more often than once every other week.
- Only one person is permitted per sign up. Multiple dogs are ok, but if they need more handlers you must sign up for each person individually.
- If you or anyone in your household becomes sick, you must reschedule.
Dog Training Elite Arizona is the last dog trainer you’ll ever need!
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 OwnersWe empower owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
SupportiveWe support owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
InvolvedWe work with all members of the household.
Simplified & CustomizedWe plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
Continued TrainingAdditional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
Lifetime InvestmentWe follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
Satisfaction RatingsOur high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.
