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!

They offer a free in home evaluation. They are the last trainer you will ever need. I have worked with them to help train my Service Dog. He is a new dog! No reason to waste money on Petco or Petsmart.

I rarely rate 5 stars, here is why Dog Training Elite deserves theirs. I homed screened 3 dog training companies in the greater phoenix area to help me with my 6 month-old Blue Nose Pitbull, my family calls Blueberry. Not satisfied, I remembered I saw a dog trainer at the Home and Garden in Scottsdale, Dog Training Elite. Neal came to the house and am I glad I remembered them. Neal and Chris have been instrumental in the transformation and development of our dog. Their understanding, communication, and techniques are readily understandable as they worked with my dog and me. As his handler, I had a few things to learn in order for Blue to progress correctly. They have made it seamless. Blueberry has graduated from the obedience class and now participates in the Tactical classes that are offered. Thanks again to the Team at DTE for an awesome experience as we continue on our journey. Highly Recommended!

Dog Training Elite is absolutely fantastic! We got in contact with them in regards to training our Maltese and Maltipoo. We were promptly answered and set up with a consultation appointment. Our consultation appointment was located in our own home and very informative and educational. We signed up immediately! Our trainer, Chris, is professional, friendly, and educational. He is so great with our dogs! You can tell that Chris is extremely passionate about his work and goes above and beyond during our training sessions. We dogs have become more well-behaved and overall more mindful of us within just a few sessions. I would recommend Dog Training Elite to anyone looking for an effective and lasting training style for their dogs!

Hats off to these guys. Neal, Chris, and company allowed my family to have the picture-perfect companion we've been longing for. After seeing we were quickly heading to familiar territory with an unruly and disobedient dog, we decided to give DTE a try and I'm so glad we did. We just completed our 5th and last in-home session. That along with the group training has helped turn our Aussiedoodle into an obedient and yet playful (goofy) buddy. The in-home sessions were very specialized to our wants/needs. The overall experience was well worth the cost and time! Courteous and attentive staff were always prompt! Would definitely recommend to family/friends!

After seeing we were quickly heading to familiar territory with an unruly and disobedient dog, we decided to give DTE a try and I'm so glad we did. On my dog's defense though, it was not his fault. He was being a dog. We were being human and it was our fault that he started picking up bad habits. We just completed our 5th and last in-home session. That along with the group training has helped turn our Aussiedoodle into an obedient and yet playful (goofy) buddy. The in-home sessions were very specialized to our wants/needs. The overall experience was well worth the cost and time! So, if I was to summarize the recommendation into one sentence it would be that if you want to have an enjoyable/obedient companion and don't mind putting in a little bit of work, give these guys a try!

Choosing Dog Training Elite to train our pup Hilda was one of the best decisions we could have ever made. Neal made an initial house call to evaluate our dog and give recommendations on what type of training we should pursue based on her temperament and behavior issues. Neal did not try to up sell to the more advanced training or more expensive packages, he only made suggestions on what he believed would be the best for Hilda. It was refreshing not to be "sold" anything, and there was no pressure to sign up for training during the evaluation. We also got to see a small show from Bailey (Neal's dog) to see some of what we could expect with the training. We choose to go with the Gold package and have been so satisfied with Neal's professionalism and care for our dog while training that we are planning on continuing Hilda's training beyond the Gold package. During the first in home training Neal took the time to explain everything that the training would evolve. This included explaining exactly how the e-collar works and how it would be used in the training. We really appreciated this as we were initially apprehensive about using an e-collar for training. We have since had 4 in home lessons and been to around 15 group lessons, I continue to be impressed with how much Hilda has been able to learn. She has never been happier and is excited anytime we are headed to training. I would happily recommend Dog Training Elite looking to have their dog professionally trained. Neal and his trainers really are amazing.
