The whle staff are great and make the group classes fun. Would like to learn new techniques such as was taught this past weekend to have your dog switch sides while still walking and the dog heeling. Thanks love to learn how to do other fun things like your getting out to us.

We first saw DTE at a home and garden show (when we did not have a dog), we were impressed by the focus and clarity with how the dogs reacted to the trainers. Fast forward almost 4 years and we remembered that encounter and we made the call to DTE for our consult. There are a lot of advertisements for dog training out there, and we interviewed several of them as we searched for who to walk with on our dog training journey. In the end, we went with our first choice, DTE, because these guys are the real deal. We trust DTE with our Heeler's training because they are passionate about what they do. They communicate commands and techniques, educate on behavior patterns, and implement safety measures for everyone in the home. We have fun at the weekend group classes, surrounded by other families who are all working towards the same training goals. A well-trained dog does not happen overnight, we work extremely hard at utilizing the training techniques and tools DTE has been guiding us on over the months and each week we see more and more progress. We would suggest the AZ DTE team to any one of our friends or those serious about dog training. We are so thankful to have them on our side.

The owner and the trainer Neil is an amazing guy. He knows his stuff! His dog training skills and experience are beyond compare and he is super nice and loves what he does.
Group classes are a little bit different and less organized, laid back in my opinion when Neil is not the one doing the class. Too many breaks and the classes are usually cut short. They are supposed to be an hour long but they are not. Suggestion: since the obedience classes are held in a park, trainers should arrive 10 minutes earlier to clean up the area from dog poop so that the owners don't have to watch every step they take and try not to step in it. The trainers do not show much effort to memorize "students'" names, it seems they always only refer to the same dogs because they only know these names.

We went to dog training elite to train a service dog and we're not disappointed. The trainers at dog training elite are amazing they train you to train your dog. If you follow the program and do your homework the results are incredible. People are always shocked at how well behaved our dogs are and we always tell them it's thanks to Dog Training Elite.

Our dog has been going through the program for a few months now and has made tremendous progress! Berkeley is a rescue with extreme anxiety which comes across as aggressive in certain situations. Within the first practice he made great progress.  Now we are into our group classes and couldn't be more excited.  We have worked with Marcells the whole time and he is fantastic!! He takes his time and really get to know us, our concerns and Berkeley.
We have loved this program and can't refer them enough!!

Started my dog with Dog Training Elite when I moved to Arizona. He was 1 years old and knew basic commands but I felt like he could use a lot of work to be more focused. About 6 months later, and his basic commands are so much better! He listens to commands even when I’m not near him, he listens at the dog park, hes no longer hyper when he sees a new dog, and overall a more obedient dog. Pricilla helped me at home for our last session and made huge progress with the command “heel” and making him come right to my side. She was very strict and really wanted him to perform the command perfectly before moving on. I love that she challenged him, because in the end it really worked! I’ll continue going to their group classes just to fine tune his skills around distractions. Thanks Dog Training Elite!

I can not give enough praise to DTE AZ and all of their staff! Each trainer is skilled and knowledgeable. Not only has my dog accomplished basic and advanced obedience, but has now completed task and protection work.  Thoroughly pleased with the work Neal and his entire team has achieved.

We have done both private and group classes with Dog Training Elite for our German Shepard. The staff is great and provides excellent customer service. Ashley has really helped us better work with our dog on a leash and with some behavioral issues in the house.

Neil and especially Ilara (Gavin and Lexi too) have been phenomenal. Never knew I could be so happy with our Belgian Malinois as much as I am. We were warned about how hard it is with Malis, but DTE has trained us and Kona and we are grateful. Excited and can't wait for the next level. EVERY K9 NEEDS THIS.

I highly recommend Dog Training Elite. I am a dog lover and have owned 5 rescue dogs, none of which I have ever been able to properly train. Each one was unique, with its own fears, aggressions, insecurities or otherwise. I have now used Neal and DTE (and Gavin and Lexi) to train 4 different dogs. Each was once hyper, nervous and somewhat aggressive. Each is NOW, thanks to DTE, calmer, more obedient and happier. Investment into this process and dog training is an investment in your future ability to train all of your future dogs successfully. I have learned so much. And my dogs are so much happier.

I sought out Neal and DTE to help a friend with her two unruly, large dogs. I personally attended the training sessions and saw Neal, Gavin and Lexi expertly and lovingly handle and train them. I was so impressed, I bought the gold package for my own two rescue dogs, ages 7 and 5. Neal and his trainers clearly LOVE dogs. If you love your dog, don’t let her live in chaos. Neal and the other DTE trainers will help them become obedient and calm. They will teach you the skills to help your dog live a happy life. My husband and I agree, this has been one of the best investments in our lives.

Neal, Gavin, Iara, Anysia & Lexie have been fantastic. They've been helping train both myself and my Belgian malinois, Jax. I am so thankful to have found them and can't imagine this training process without them.

They are absolutely amazing! They have trained 2 of our dogs, one of which they trained and tested as a service dog! They worked with me on payments we could afford. Everyone always comments on how well behaved my dogs are! I would and have recommend them to everyone!

We are working with Dog Training Elite to train a service dog for our 10 year old son. They have been professional, knowledgeable, and have supported us every step of the way. They have exceeded our expectations by far and we highly recommend them to any family looking to train a service dog.

I have read several of the comments on the DTE FB site. I realize everyone is entitled to their opinion. I am not going to comment on any of the posts. I can only speak for my wife and myself. We are so very pleased with the assistance Neal and Chris have given us. They teach the tools needed to have an obedient dog. It's up to us to work with our dogs. My Dane has learned quite a bit since starting with DTE. I have not been totally diligent in working with Domino. I can only imagine how good he would be if we did put the time in required to have an obedient dog. We all have choices when it comes to picking a dog trainer. I am totally satisfied and pleased we picked DTE.

Dog Training Elite saved two of my dogs from getting put down. My first Belgian Malinois was human and dog aggressive. He wouldn't show any warning signs, he would just go and attack. I had Neal come out for the free in-home evaluation as a last resort (I either had to find a trainer that would be able to help him or would have to put him down), and as my dog was barking and lunging at him, Neal said, "He'll be easy." I didn't believe him. I laughed because this was a dog that would turn and bite me when I would hold him back from attacking other dogs and people. He showed me his own dog, Bailey, and I was immediately sold. First of all, this was the first training company that brought a dog to my house. Second of all, Neal was the first trainer that wasn't afraid of my dog. I watched him give Bailey commands from 20-30 feet away speaking no louder than at an indoor voice. I have never seen a dog happier to work than Bailey. After he demonstrated the training for us, we scheduled our first training session for a week out. Within the first 10 minutes of the first lesson, my dog's human aggression was gone. He was seriously a new dog. His dog aggression took about a month to fix only because I was so nervous to attend group class. Neal and his other trainers walked me through my first group class to make it go as smoothly as possible. After my second group class, we were able to take off my dog's muzzle, and he was able to be in close distance to other dogs. Now my dog loves meeting new people and love playing with dogs. The second dog I hired DTE to help with was a very anxious Belgian Malinois I was fostering. She was afraid of everything, and she couldn't even relax inside. Within a couple weeks, she was confident, happy, and relaxed. She is now a full time service dogs for someone. Without DTE, these two dogs could have been put down because of their serious behavioral issues. They were a threat to themselves and others, and now they are stable, level-headed, and happy dogs. I can't thank Dog Training Elite enough for all their help with my dogs!
