Carlos and Trinity are professional, caring and very knowledgeable. I feel they trained me as a handler as much as they did Anubis in his skills. I hate to see them go, but life moves us around for a reason. Anubis went from a gangly puppy that wouldn’t even sit on command, to an attentive hard working service dog who has become a major asset and my best friend. He continues to astound me by learning new skills with eagerness and with such excitement. I could have never gotten him trough all his training without Elite! Thank you and best to you all as you move to new adventures.

Dog Training Elite Utah County has been wonderful to work with. They have been professional, caring, and so responsive. I had the opportunity to see them work with a number of well behaved dog and reactive dogs. They were able to work with my fearful rescue, and she has made so much progress! Highly Recommend!

I can't thank DTE enough for changing my life and my dog's! We loved challenging ourselves to help create a more stable life for our pup Remi. I can tell each day how much less reactive she is becoming due to the confidence building exercises we have practiced with our trainer Amanda. I would do this all over again knowing how incredible the results truly are with dedication + love. An old dog CAN learn new tricks, and we have direct proof after working with DTE.

These folks are fantastic !!!! They are extremely patient focusing on both human and animal interactions to achieve the best goals. Talia and Alex are great. I was shocked at how well Max and I progressed during our first group session. A well mannered dog makes for a really great friend. Thank you so much Dog Training Elite for helping me achieve this goal.

We rescued Max, he was a very frightful dog which turned into scary aggression. After Dog Training Elite, lots of tough love and patience I can happily say Max has become a secure happy dog. Thank you Dog Training Elite!!

Dog Training Elite is the bees knees of dog training in the Queen city! When we went looking for a trainer to help us with Caesar, we relied on reviews to help us choose Dog Training Elite. If you are looking for a dog trainer and sifting through the reviews, let me be the one to assure you that Dog Training Elite truly deserves 5-stars. We have been working with Dog Training Elite for a few months and I cannot recommend them highly enough! From the time our German Rottie, Caesar, joined our family as a tiny puppy, we focused on keeping him well-socialized and friendly. He grew into a good-natured, loving, playful, and somewhat obedient dog. However, Caesar's size and bark were quite intimidating to people, he had a bad habit of leash-pulling which made it difficult to walk him, and he often liked to decide whether or not to come when called. After the very first session with Shawn, Caesar not only came when he was called - he was excited to do so! Caesar always looks forward to his time working with Shawn, and it is easy to see how happy he is to learn new commands and show off what he can do. Shawn has gone above and beyond in working with us and Caesar - and I am absolutely thrilled with how quickly Caesar has progressed in his training. I simply cannot recommend Dog Training Elite highly enough.

They are absolutely the best. My German Shepherd puppy was a real demon when he first went in, and they were able to transform him into a wonderful service pet that is well behaved and listens. They truly know their craft, and I absolutely recommend them. You’ll begin to see the difference right away and your dog.

They were great! My dog loved working with all of them. They eased my anxiety about the e-collar and everything. They definitely are the best trainers I’ve seen in a while!

We brought our German Shepherd puppy to Dog Training Elite and couldn't be happier. We had Geneva as our trainer who is very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and made sure we knew what we needed to work on as well. We saw results after the first day too.

We are so happy with the training our goldendoodle received. Shawn, Sharon and their family not only trained our dog but trained us on how to keep it up when we got home. They are very prompt and have answered all my questions within a timely manner. We are so exited to see what our doodle can keep doing & can’t wait to see his continued training as a service dog! Thank you again!

if you are looking for a miracle like we were Dog Training Elite is the place to go-they changed our life for the better!! Geneva is so on top of communicating and telling you honestly how your dog is doing. you get videos and pictures of what your dog is doing everyday. I felt so safe leaving my doggo in their hands. You can have personal time with the trainer and your dog so you know exactly what your dog is learning and how you can keep up the work at home. Dog Training Elite has the best staff, i felt comfortable talking to everyone there because they are so kind and you can tell they have you and your dogs best interest in mind. TAKE YOUR DOG TO DTE!!!! we love everything about them and would recommend them to anyone and everyone who is wanting to get their dog trained :)

Fantastic trainers and proven methodology. We have a 1 1/2 year old 80 lbs Sheepadoodle. Within about 6 weeks, he changed from a leash-puller to a full on off leash dog. We hike and run with him off leash and enjoy walking with him a lot more (I climbed a 14er Mountain with him yesterday fully off leash). Life changing for us. Highly recommend.

I was really nervous about finding a good company to train my sons service dog & spent months researching. Dog Training Elite was the only one I found that would do at home training. I'm a hands on/observe learner. It was so great to have Melanie & Salena come to my home, show me exactly what to do, & practiced with me until I felt comfortable. They explained the process & answered my questions with kindness. They were always right on time & eager to work with us. They also worked really well with Drake. I feel he did so much better being at his home with me for his basic training. They also answered emails/texts within the same day. They worked well with me to figure out a plan that would work best based on my sons special needs/disability. Drake has now graduated from his basic training & we're excited to start group trainings. Highly recommend Dog Training Elite if you want convenient & professional dog training no matter what services you are looking for.

Our 4th boxer and have never hired a professional trainer before. What were we thinking??? Layla is quickly becoming a well-mannered, loving and behaved member of our family. After the first session we were so excited to regain control of our house/lives again! Now after 5 sessions, Shawn has helped us learn how to interact, motivate and train a hot mess of a puppy into a well behaved 8-month old! Shawn has such a great way with pups AND owners. He's always calm and informative and Layla wants to learn everything he has to offer, as do we! Shawn communicates about sessions, is always on time and is always there for a quick call or text if new challenges arise. He has literally changed our lives! Can't say enough about how impressed we, our family, friends and neighbors are. 10 STARS!

Dog training Elite has been awesome for our family. Our dog Koa has been going since he was 9 weeks old. Koa has learned so much and grown so much because of their training. We can’t wait to see our pup graduate into a service dog. They are flexible with our schedules and work with us even though we live about an hour and a half south. They have been amazing.
