Many dog owners express frustration when their dog returns from obedience school and has not learned one command successfully. While obedience school trainers teach your dog simple commands, effective training is best done at home with the owner. Each dog is unique, with its own temperament and behavioral issues. Full-scope training is not possible to achieve without an in-home dog training program.

During in-home sessions, trainers get to know the dog and its environment. There are often particular issues- chasing the mailman or barking at the neighbor’s cat - that are not observed in an out-of-home setting. Bringing a professional dog trainer into your home creates a personalized training experience, that addresses your dog’s particular issues.

In-home dog training is more successful than group classes because it minimizes distractions. Basic obedience and behavioral issues must first be addressed with one-on-one private training, and then these lessons can be tested in a more distracting environment. Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City takes a comprehensive approach, pairing in-home training with group lessons to ensure your dog fully retains every command and can respond appropriately regardless of the environment.

In-home dog trainers can address a variety of issues, such as:


  • Housebreaking
  • Leash pulling
  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Ignoring commands
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping on people
  • Destructive behaviors

Positive Training Methods


At Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City, we understand that you want the best for your dog, and our goal is to ensure all training experiences are positive for you and your furry friend! Our team of trainers has learned that positive reinforcement and classical conditioning are the most effective training methods. We never use punishment - we love dogs and we want them to learn in a positive, safe environment! By rewarding dogs for good behavior rather than punishing negative behaviors, our trainers effectively teach your canine companion how to behave.

In Home Dog Training Goals

While our professional dog trainers will be taking the lead, you, and any other family members who interact with your dog will be a part of the training process as well. In-home dog training empowers you and helps you build a positive relationship with your dog.

Benefits of Positive In-Home Training Techniques

Dogs enjoy training sessions if they take place with the person they love. Listening, learning, and acting on commands is a way for your dog to show you that he cares! The praise you bestow your pup (and the tasty treat you give) makes him happy, and this experience of learning is a great bonding activity.

Sending your dog off to obedience school removes you from the training process and prevents this special bonding from occurring. When you choose Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City, we ensure you are part of the training process. All in-home training programs involve you and any other family members that care for your dog. Our trainers’ goal is to teach you how to train your dog.

Obedience commands are essential to any full-scope dog training program. These commands ensure the safety of your dog and prevent any undesired problems. Obedience is the core of successful training, and your dog must learn these commands before he can progress.

Our in-home training program focuses on ingrained obedience and our trainers ensure your dog learns essential commands, such as sit, place, come, stay, lay, off, drop it, and more. Once these key lessons are taught, our trainers will work with you and your pup on more advanced topics.

Does your dog jump up as a greeting, or charge the door anytime visitors announce their arrival with the doorbell? Or perhaps he begs from the table with wide, puppy eyes? These problem behaviors are easily corrected with the right training techniques.

Group classes or “puppy essentials” training programs cannot address most problem behaviors, as these issues are more likely to occur at home where your dog is most comfortable and confident. Bringing a trusted trainer into your home is the best way to address these behaviors!

In-Home Dog Trainers in Salt Lake City

Searching for a professional dog trainer is stressful. Thankfully, Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City has various locations and experienced professional dog trainers ready to assist you and your pet. Besides basic obedience issues, our trainers are experienced in service dog training, therapy dog training, and any other specialized training your pup may need. If you are looking for in-home dog trainers in Salt Lake City, then look no further than Dog Training Elite.

We never use shock collars or punishments; our training method focuses on positive reinforcement, which has proven successful. We combine this positive reinforcement with an electronic vibration collar for optimal results. The vibration collar is not a shock collar nor does it cause pain - it is used to get your dog’s attention, like the tug of a leash. Our techniques have proven successful over the years, and we are proud to be a trusted provider of dog training services in the Salt Lake City area.

Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City is proud to have the highest rated in-home dog trainers in Salt Lake City.

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.

Why Choose a Professional?


DIY training often fails because most dog owners do not know how to communicate with their canine companions. A professional trainer teaches you how to communicate with your dog, making training easier and results long-lasting.

Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City’s in-home training program is highly personalized as opposed to most other programs available to dog owners. Together, owners and canines create stronger bonds along with sustained obedience. Contact us today for a free in-home evaluation!

In-Home Dog Training FAQs


As your dog spends most of his time inside your home or around your property, this is where problem behaviors are more likely to occur. When you bring your dog to group classes, these behaviors are likely to go unaddressed. Bringing a trainer in your home allows for your dog to feel comfortable and gives the trainer a chance to catch and correct negative behaviors.
At Dog Training Elite, we create highly personalized programs because we know every dog is different. Our in-home dog training program focuses on basic obedience, housebreaking, and behavior correction. If your dog is a barker, a mailman chaser, or displays aggression, your personal trainer will focus on these unique behaviors.
Yes! Our professional trainers include you in the lessons and work hard to help you and your dog establish a bond of trust. When the dog owner is not included in the training process, it is extremely difficult to establish obedience in your dog. A dog dropped off at over-stimulating, distracting doggie daycare or group training sessions will have difficulty translating those lessons into his home environment.
At Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City, we use positive reinforcement methods and a gentle vibration collar. We never abuse or use punishment tactics. A happy dog is an obedient dog, and we work with treats, praise and attention to help your dog establish healthy behaviors.

Dog Training Elite in Salt Lake City provides professional and personalized in-home dog training programs in near you Salt Lake City.

Our trainer Erin was absolutely amazing the last two weeks. I felt so comfortable dropping my baby boy off with her every morning. You can tell she truly cares about these animals. Every evening upon pickup she gave me a detailed description of what Scooby learned that day and how to continue his training at home. So worth the money. Love this place. Love Erin. Thankful to have a dog I can be more confident in. Thank you guys.

Very happy with our experience here. We did the two week in house package. The trainer Erin was amazing to work with and answered all of our questions. We completed the course two weeks ago and our dog continues to obey commands like a rock star.

Dog Training Elite is wonderful. My at-home training was invaluable. It helped my dog understand and know what was allowed and what wasn’t and why. The group training has been great. It has taught Gladys social skills and how to be a good dog in various, and sometimes, uncomfortable situations. It has been worth every dollar. Highly recommend.

This group of people are absolute amazing. They are helping me train my Luger to be my brace and mobility service dog. Working with "The Malinois Foundation". Each and every one of the people that are with Dog Training Elite at this location and at every other location I have been with are wonderful. Both in knowledge and skill sets to train anything you could ask for. If one trainer does not have the knowledge they reach out to someone in the group, who does so they can grow as a trainer and be successful. I want to say thank you to Jeff who runs most of their group classes. He has done amazing. To Jess and her service dog Rider. They have been amazing in helping me understand what it means to have a service dog and Jess's help with task training. Watching her grow as a trainer as well, has been amazing. To there front desk person KC. Always present and on point with anything that you need. I could mention everyone else as well. They are all great. 12 out of 10 would recommend. Your dogs could not be in better hands.

We have been so incredibly impressed with DTE!! I was very new to dog ownership and needing a service dog for my little girl. I called around and everyone seemed so mean and didn't seem to know what they were doing as it related to our particular situation. Jeff was awesome - just so awesome and patient teaching my 8 year old how to be a doggo handler. Our husky is 180 from when we got him and he does his work beautifully. Use DTE - it's the best!

We seriously are so happy we found dog training elite. The staff is so friendly, easy to work with and beyond knowledgeable. They have already made such amazing progress with our dog I cant wait to see what she can do when they are done! They are so patient and include my 2 year old in training her service dog & that means the world to us! Plus Nana loves playing with the other dogs. They have already watched nana over night for us twice and I couldnt be happier. I love that you can tell they honestly care about what they do and loves the dogs. Jess has been so helpful with learning about diabetic alert dogs and so helpful with not only nana but our daughter too. 10/10 recommendations from us!

I have a very aggressive dog and looked into many different dog training places before deciding to go with Dog Training Elite. Evan came to my home to do a free evaluation and impressed me and that's what made me decide to go with this company. Jeff was the trainer that we worked with the most. He was great with our dog Tucker. I now have a better understanding of a dog's behavior. In the past, I was embarrassed and nervous to have Tucker out in public and am now more comfortable. I love that we get 8 months of group classes after the initial one-on-one trainings. I would highly recommend Dog Training Elite.

I love Dog Training Elite SLC - Jeff & Evan did an amazing job with our in home training. My dog was a monster because his previous owner did not train him. 4.5 months into his training he is now Pyrfect - we take him camping and he is off leash the entire time. I can’t thank everyone enough at DTE for helping Tatonka and I reach this level of happiness. It’s worth all the time and money invested.

I started off doing puppy classes with Jess and then did some obedience with Erin and Jake. Kaycee and Oakley has been great scheduling and coordinating my times and is always prompt. I do group classes now with Jeff which have been great as well. Overall if you're looking for a place where the handlers know what they're doing and you're willing to put the time in to work on your dog, you cant find a better place to get some real training for you and your pup
