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 Owners
    We empower Owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
  • Personalized
    We deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
  • Environment Specific
    We train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
  • Supportive
    We support Owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
  • Involved
    We work with all members of the household.
  • Simplified & Customized
    We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training
    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.

Danielle, scruffy and Kona are the best. Danielle works well with the puppies and dogs. Our Molly was trained by Danielle and she absolutely loves her. Our dog Molly is going to be working with Danielle to get her service dog certificate. Molly is doing an awesome job with Danielle's guidance and advice. Would highly recommend.

I can’t say enough about Danielle and her training ability. My lab which happens to be a very large dog, was not quite a year old and extremely playful when Danielle came to my house to train him. I was very impressed on how she was able to control him and he listened to her. She taught me how to work with him and now he behaves so well and listens. He used to jump on anyone coming over to the house and I just have to use my command and he stops. He’s still young at 15 months and turning out to be such a good and happy boy!

Danielle is fabulous. We have two puppies and she has taught us the tools to train them. Our goal was to have our dogs be part of the family and have people enter our home without getting knocked over by Al and Tess. They are getting better every day with the commands Danielle has taught them. She is very kind and flexible. I would highly recommend her business.

I can’t truly express how thankful I am for the patience and commitment Danielle has shown us. After working with multiple trainers and vets, along with trying various medications, I was at the end of my rope. My two year old dog had developed severe and dangerous separation anxiety. She broke out of crates, caused significant damage to our house, and was dangerous to herself - she jumped out a second floor window! I was desperately trying to find ways to help her, so we could avoid my worst nightmare - not being able to keep her. Four months into our crisis, after spending thousands of dollars on doggy daycare, trainers, and medicine, I connected with Danielle. I was losing hope because nothing seemed to be working. Danielle knew she could get better. She encouraged, coached, and supported us each step of the way. Thanks to Danielle, Snoopy is now safely staying home alone in her crate for long stretches of time and my family has been able to resume everyday life!

Dog Training Elite is the best for teaching your best friend some manners! Magnum is a Wiemerana who is 13 months old, full of energy and extremely excited to see people. He no longer jumps on everyone who stops to say "Hello"!

Danielle & Scruffy are great! Can’t believe how much better behaved my boy Gino is since we’ve started working with Danielle.

We have had the most incredible experience working with Danielle, and we can’t believe how much our pup has grown and changed since we started working with her! She is encouraging, capable, and very professional. We are so proud to be part of the pack and I would recommend working with Danielle to anyone!

Danielle is amazing! We have a 15 month old very leash aggressive German Shepherd. Danielle has shown us how to get control of this and we can now go on walks and rides with him in a car without him flipping out. We can not thank her enough.

Danielle is an amazing trainer! Our Coon Hound responded great to the training.

Danielle is such a kind and patient trainer and she will work closely with you to ensure both you and your dog understand all areas of the training. I highly recommend calling her if you are struggling with basic obedience or if you need more advanced training.

Danielle is one of the kindest, most patient people I have ever known. Turns out those traits transfer perfectly for dog training. I would let her train my kids if she would :)! She is truly amazing!!!

Posted September 23rd 2022
I spoke with Danielle in great length about what i expected to get out of training. I have had 4 dogs trained on e-collars so, i am not new to the method. Danielle took the time to answer all of my questions and worked to accommodate me in any way she could. Although I opted for a different training method. I can not thank her enough for the time, understanding and compassion she showed me. I HIGHLY recommend Dog Training Elite to everyone! I can't say enough good things about their training techniques, their compassion for the dogs, and their willingness to work with owners to obtain the perfect pet!

So happy we decided to try Dog Training Elite! Danielle was the best, my nervous English Springer Spaniel loved her and her behavior is so much better! We learned so much, it was worth every penny.

Danielle has been working with dogs her whole life from volunteering at a no-kill shelter to owning and operating a successful dog kennel business. There is no one I can think better suited to handle the challenges of training, and to teach you the best methods for getting your pup in top shape.
