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.
  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

My sweet mini Golden Doodle, Sadie, had 5 in home training sessions with 4 different Elite trainers.They were all fantastic! My dog and I learned Come, Sit, Place, Down, Heel and Off. This is magic! Sadie loved the learning and I was relieved to be guided into being a calm and consistent dog Mama. We practice every day and I love the ease this approach has brought into our lives. I highly recommend Dog Training Elite. Sadie and I can’t wait for the group classes.

Dog Training Elite is absolutely amazing. It has been a wonderful experience from the very start. All of the trainers are incredibly knowledgeable and willing to help with anything we need. In just a few months, we've seen a major transformation with our rambunctious 2-year old Aussie/Lab mix, Maho, thanks to everyone at Dog Training Elite. We are so appreciative and happy we sought out help from this organization!

We signed up with DTE and honestly I wasn’t sure how effective they would be. My dog Bo is so anxious and aggressive I never thought we would be able to fully enjoy him. We were assigned Evan and I can’t begin to tell you just how amazing of a person Evan is. Evan connected with Bo and helped him do things I never thought possible. The pic of him next to Evans dog was the first time I have ever had my dog next to another animal that he wasn’t trying to kill. Evan is incredible, kind, caring, and I would recommend him a million times over! Thanks Evan and Bo is such a happier animal because of you. Well worth the money!!!!!

The people that work here are truly amazing. It really blows my mind how much they care for the dogs AND the dog owners. I trust them whole heartedly with my dog and with the outcome of this training experience. The entire organization has exceeded my expectations and I feel so lucky to have them guide me and my dog through this journey. Erin and Jess worked with us closely for the in-home training sessions for my golden retriever puppy. We started my dog at 14 weeks and although I grew up with dogs, this is my first time training one to this extent. Erin and Jess have always been so kind and patient with me and my dog. They are so knowledgeable in their field and take the time to make sure I’m comfortable. Every trainer at the group trainings have also been extremely patient and helpful. Even Kaycee, who I haven’t met in person yet but communicate with about my questions and concerns, has gone out of her way to make sure I feel informed and supported. Seriously, I could go on forever, these people feel like they are angels on earth, I appreciate them so much.

I always receive compliments when I am in public with my puppy about how well-behaved she is! She would not be the good girl she is without this amazing program and its trainers. Bean got to know and love Jess, Cass, and Jeff. Over the course of 5 weeks, I watched my stubborn, destructive puppy transform into an obedient and well-mannered girl. Not only was the Gold Program great for Bean, but it taught me how to control and teach her, all from the comfort of my own home! Bean will now go on to become a service dog with the help of DTE, we can't wait for our next chapter!

Dog Training Elite were extremely helpful and kind. even though we no longer live in Salt Lake City they are still there for us. they have helped me train three service dogs and I don't know what I would have done without them. I keep praying that by the time I need another service dog they will have a branch of dog training here in Tennessee so I can get there helped again (hint hint)! I can't recommend them highly enough they are wonderful and I count them among my dearest friends. they have helped me become more independent and happier. my dogs are better dogs and more useful and happier, even my pet dogs are happier. if you want your dog to be more obedient and happier these are the dog trainers to help.

We adopted the cutest crazy doggie, Bud. We reached out to dog training Elite to help us. Bud joined the elite training camp and in just two weeks we saw tremendous results. Tanya Mayurov spent every second training and teaching Bud manners and new commands. She was very personal and took the time to help us understand how to take control back. We love the collars that they use with no shock feature. We are soo excited where our future is headed with Bud and our unborn child. He’s already such a better dog who listens. Thank you soo much DTe family!

This is an amazing group of people who are very professional, helpful, and caring. During the peak of COVID last year I took my pup to Olympus Cove Vet (NEVER take your pets there) and they didn't let me go inside during the appt. I'm not sure how they handled my pup, but she was different after the appt and became aggressive towards me. Trevor taught me so much about my pup and helped us stop my dogs aggressive behavior. She is back to being the sweet little girl she was before the vet experience and no longer bites, runs away from us, or snarls. Trevor not only taught us about anxiety/aggression in dogs, but he taught us basic dog training tools we will use for pups we get in the future. Thank you so much Trevor and Dog Elite!

We had a stubborn GSP that wanted to rule the roost and then some. We were basically a hot mess express trying to go it alone. Evan to the rescue! There is a night and day difference in our dude and we are so happy we found Dog Training Elite. We highly recommend them to anyone!

We went from having a puppy who nipped, bit, and and growled at me and my 8 yr old child for 5 weeks, even had the thought maybe we shouldn’t have a dog. Grandpa even called her Cujo. So happy that Evan with DTE walked into our lives, he has made our Athena girl our true Goddess. She makes everyone in my famliy feel so special by the way she minds & comforts us all. Thank you again, Whittaker’s

We had THE BEST experience at DTE -- Tanya specifically was magic with our Frenchie Louie. I highly recommend their boot camp -- Louie is a new dog! He is patient and quiet and so well behaved. The training provided the framework and structure for him to learn the basics and then some. Our lives have drastically improved! Love the staff and can't say enough about this program. I refer everyone I know -- worth every penny! Thanks so much to the team at DTE -- we will be lifelong friends! :) Tanya and Louie are the cutest of friends -- I love it so much!

I never leave reviews but I rarely place a life I love into others hands. Tanya was the MOST amazing dog trainer I could have ever asked for. I decided to get a dog that would be big and immediately recognized that he needed training to be safe and happy in a human household. I will not lie that I was nervous to go with e-collar training but it turned out great! I noticed that Tanya worked with him on a very low level which to me meant that she was an extraordinary great trainer and that was true. When she started working with him, he was excited to get to training camp for the day. We ended up with a completely different dog at the end and it was beneficial for him and us as we found a form of communication. Thanks so very much! It was a truly great experience and will be impacting for years to come! He is still in "place' after 40 minutes. I am sure visitors will appreciate this command. Not everyone likes big dog hugs 😉

Our goldendoodle Rosie was a very anxious and nervous dog before her training. After only 2 weeks she is more social and obedient than ever! Tanya has done an absolutely amazing job with Rosie and explaining to us in detail her training and how to execute it properly! Amazing!!
