If you are searching for a responsible dog trainer for your pitbull, you have come to the right place. Dog Training Elite is highly experienced with the strong, loyal breeds recognized as "pit bulls." Whether you have an American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier or another bull-type dog breed, we can help you harness the power of these incredible animals. Our puppy, obedience and personal protection programs are perfect for these breeds and can shape your beloved Pitbull into a loyal, well-behaved companion.
Though their history of bull-baiting and fighting is sad, the Pitbull we know today is a refreshing change from the ferocious breeds of the past. More than a century of responsible breeding since the outlawing of dog blood sports in England has developed bull-type breeds that are strong and stocky yet kind-hearted, loving and fiercely loyal. The American Staffordshire Terrier is one of America's most popular breeds and is well-known for his outgoing personality and energetic playfulness. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are known for their loving mood and tenderness with children. While Pitbull temperament has taken a turn for the better, these breeds do have a history of aggression and must be trained probably. Our dog trainers are highly experienced in harnessing the power of Pitbulls and helping owners build safe and loyal relationships with their dogs.
Our Pitbull Training Program
Tall, stocky, and muscular, Pitbulls are impressive dogs. Their hallmark look features a large head with big, sweet eyes and prominent jaws. With responsible training, Pitbulls make both excellent family companions and personal protection animals. Our talented dog trainers can help you harness the power of this breed into an intelligent and safe watchdog.
Our Pitbull training program will cover the following commands and training milestones:
- Crate training and house breaking
- Socialization, dog-play etiquette
- Problem behavior correction
- Aggression and temperament control
- Heel and leash etiquette
- Basic obedience commands like come, sit, stay, place and more
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").
