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 15 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.

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!!

100% recommended, I couldn't be happier I made that investment for my dog. It is a change from heaven to earth in only 5 sessions and the group sessions are still missing. everyone at home is grateful to elite training salt lake city especially to coach Evans who gave all of his best to our Sam and not even the language barrier could stop us. the best 💪

An EASY choice. I had intended to interview 3-4 different dog training companies but after meeting JENNY for our in-home consultation, I knew I didn't need to look any further. She brought a sincerity about her work that made me feel like she would care about teaching and training our dog as if it was her own. RONNIE is our 10month old toy poodle... he only weighs 3.5lbs but Jenny has created a confident, smart, obedient little giant in our dog. We are training him to be a therapy dog, as in comforting those at the hospital or in therapy sessions. Jenny seems to know weekly just what Ronnie needs to progress. She isn't forceful but she's not a push over either...each week she builds on his skills by setting a standard for him to reach by the end of session. She has included our five kids (ages 16-6years) in Ronnies therapy and gives us responsibilities weekly to reinforce his training that is simple to follow thru with. It's so exciting to see the progress our dog makes every week.

DTE has been amazing to work with! They’re attentive to not only my needs but my service dog in training Charli’s too. I love that they have made me feel welcome at ease anytime I have to leave Charli there. The staff there is SO INCREDIBLE! If you want trainers that love not only your dog but care about you too then this is the place! Jenny has gone above and beyond for me and my pup! Charli loves seeing Jenny and the other trainers! Anyone that knows my Charli girl knows she is sassy so it’s been great having her be with the best of the best!

We started sessions with our dog Ellie two weeks ago and have already seen major improvements in her behavior! She is a very anxious doggo but has the sweetest personality and Evan has been the greatest help. He wants to see her improve as much as we do! We couldn't ask for a better trainer! Ellie is less stressed and and working on trusting people again. We can't wait for more sessions!

We are amazed at the quickness and thoroughness of the obedience training from Elite. We can take our Golden unleashed on a walk, and she'll 'place' on a bench or a rock when people pass. They say, "Wow!! What good manners!" Thanks 100% to Evan, our trainer!! He's almost got us, the owners, trained too.
