Puppy Webinar


The Puppy Webinar is Dog Training Elite Richmond’s trusted puppy class available “on-demand” from the comfort of your home! It covers the essentials: come, sit, loose-leash walking, and down; puppy corrections (stop biting, digging, jumping, etc.); crate training/housebreaking; socialization tips, environmental hazards, puppy enrichment, and caring for your puppy. The webinar video is accessible for a three-day period and will also include a personal call from one of Dog Training Elite Richmond’s experienced trainers.

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.


Dog Training Elite Richmond is the top company near you that uses professional positive dog training methods.

Benefits of Puppy Training


Training helps your puppy grow into a well-behaved dog. A well-trained dog not only helps you to have a happy and peaceful home where you don’t have to worry about your puppy making a mess, but it helps a dog become a fully participating member of your family.

Benefits of Puppy Training Deepen Your Bond With Your Puppy


Training your puppy - and continuing training with new tricks as they get older - is a great way to bond closely. Puppies have a natural desire to please and will learn to rely on you for guidance and direction, establishing a foundation of trust and love.

Benefits of Puppy Training Socialize Your Dog


Obedience training, especially with group classes, helps dogs become comfortable and well socialized around other dogs and people. This is important for when you want to take your dog on walks or invite people into your home.

Benefits of Puppy Training Improve Your Dog's Safety


Training your dog to listen to and obey your commands will help them stay safe in any situation. Learning commands like “stop” and “wait” can keep your dog safe in your home by keeping them from messing around with things like electrical cords, and it keeps them safe from running into dangerous situations outside.

Benefits of Puppy Training Provide Mental Stimulation


Good dogs can become bad dogs if they don’t have a way to work out both physical and mental energy. Training as a lifelong pursuit is a great way to challenge your dog mentally and keep them engaged.

I'm so grateful for Paul and DTE. The progress my dog has done in these last couple of months has been amazing. I'm looking forward to my dog's service dog training after completing her obedience training. She's been great to me so far and has helped me through tough times, but I know Paul with DTE can make sure she's doing the best she can and help me better than she is now.

Paul with DTE was absolutely wonderful to work with! We all feel lucky to have found him and incredibly pleased with our investment in our fur babies. You most certainly CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Patience and consistency are virtues you will need through this endeavor, but the satisfaction and pride you'll feel both for your own perseverance, as well as your pups, is so worth all of the time and hard work!! We're looking forward to group sessions and are excited to see what new adventures we'll enjoy as a family. Buster, Mae, and Goose fell "in love" and "in line" when Paul entered our home and we'll be forever grateful for his knowledge and expertise. Many people are quick to judge when discussing e-collars but we truly feel that if they took the time to go through even one training session with Paul, their perception WILL be shifted, especially after witnessing the power of redirection and repetition first hand. Dogs love structure and they love pleasing their humans, so if you're in need of some excellent training with the option to gain a lifetime friend, give Paul with DTE a call! ~M&M

I had just about lost hope for my overly excited but super loving pup. We had tried other training methods to no avail, but meeting Paul Hearn was a game changer! In just six weeks she went from excessive barking, bolting out doors, jumping, etc to super chill and well behaved. We appreciate you so much, Paul!

We got Paul to help us with our two year old lab so she would come and stay when we needed. He helped teach her a new command every visit so she could understand and we could understand what to do so she would be better behaved.
