Hire a Dog Trainer
Are you looking to hire a dog trainer? Thanks to four decades of experience, Dog Training Elite is one of the highest rated dog trainers in your area. We train dogs of any breed, any size and any age. Our dog trainers teach basic obedience and help you develop a strong bond with your dog.
Our Training Method
Dogs are eager to please and we take advantage of this in our training method. Unlike other trainers that use harsh punishment to reinforce behavior, we only use positive tactics. By showing dogs what we want them to do with positive reinforcement, we receive a better response. This is the preferred method for dog lovers! We certainly do not want to harm dogs, and we know most dog owners agree with us.
Our trainers use an electronic collar to support their positive reinforcement training methods. This is not a shock collar. The electronic collar simply gets your dog's attention and ensures superior training results when paired with a command.
To develop stronger bonds between dog and family, we ask dog owners and other family members to take part in training sessions. Our goal is to help you train your new dog as a valuable member of your family with love and trust.

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 20 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.
