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.
Dog Training Elite San Antonio has award winning in-home dog trainers and top rated dog training programs.

I saw such a huge change in my Dobie's behavior and in myself as a handler. The trainers were incredibly helpful and happy to see her grow with me. She's still a pup, but I'm so proud of her and excited to get her working on tasks as she gets older because of the care and training results I've seen from the team so far. A lot has been going on for me and they've really helped me with the puppy stages TREMENDOUSLY and have set us up with a great foundation. Very professional, hands on, flexible, helpful organization and I would 100% go with them every time.

My rescue pittie mix attended the 2 week obedience training. He's approximately 4 years old and has a mind of his own. Geneva was great with him. Now he listens better and responds appropriately. He will start weekend group training soon to expound on his skills.

DTE helped me immensely, training my young Saint Bernard puppy to be a service dog. I couldn’t be more pleased with their expertise and professionalism. They are the best trainers in The San Antonio area. Highly recommend.

I can't thank DTE enough for changing my life and my dog's! We loved challenging ourselves to help create a more stable life for our pup Remi. I can tell each day how much less reactive she is becoming due to the confidence building exercises we have practiced with our trainer Amanda. I would do this all over again knowing how incredible the results truly are with dedication + love. An old dog CAN learn new tricks, and we have direct proof after working with DTE.

We rescued Max, he was a very frightful dog which turned into scary aggression. After Dog Training Elite, lots of tough love and patience I can happily say Max has become a secure happy dog. Thank you Dog Training Elite!!

They are absolutely the best. My German Shepherd puppy was a real demon when he first went in, and they were able to transform him into a wonderful service pet that is well behaved and listens. They truly know their craft, and I absolutely recommend them. You’ll begin to see the difference right away and your dog.

We brought our German Shepherd puppy to Dog Training Elite and couldn't be happier. We had Geneva as our trainer who is very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and made sure we knew what we needed to work on as well. We saw results after the first day too.

if you are looking for a miracle like we were Dog Training Elite is the place to go-they changed our life for the better!! Geneva is so on top of communicating and telling you honestly how your dog is doing. you get videos and pictures of what your dog is doing everyday. I felt so safe leaving my doggo in their hands. You can have personal time with the trainer and your dog so you know exactly what your dog is learning and how you can keep up the work at home. Dog Training Elite has the best staff, i felt comfortable talking to everyone there because they are so kind and you can tell they have you and your dogs best interest in mind. TAKE YOUR DOG TO DTE!!!! we love everything about them and would recommend them to anyone and everyone who is wanting to get their dog trained :)

I signed my dog up for the Service Dog Training Camp. She has every skill I will need for her to be my service dog, she is incredibly obedient and is much more confident (she had a VERY overly excited/anxious demeanor before). I feel it’s safe to say this company has absolutely changed my dog for the better: a dog who was once ignoring commands, had a short attention span, and was slightly destructive has now since graduated her program to be my service dog. Plus, you can tell the trainers genuinely care and want what’s best for you dog! However, I will say it’s not magic and you must also keep your pup accountable for the training to stick at home. Your dog will thank you for coming here and continuing the training at home.

When we got our little Pepe he was scared of everything and everyone. Since he was a rescue we had little facts on him other than he was roughly 3yrs old. The barking and running out the door was just driving us nuts. We signed him up for training and I swear we have a whole new dog. He now follows direction, sits and looks out the door if I leave it open. We can go out and his confidence in himself and us shows through his behavior. Thank you again to all the trainers in helping us.

Geneva and Adakais are nothing short of amazing. The owner Whitley is am amazing person with a huge heart. She stepped.in where others dripped the ball to ensure this disabled veteran got the service dog I so desperately needed. I will ALWAYS go back to Dog Training Elite for any training needs I have in the future!

We have been working with Dave to train our bull terrier mix who has reactivity and aggression issues. Dave has been very helpful and always available in case we have any issues. Our dog has come a long way from when we first began training. We attend dog classes on the weekends to get her used to being around other dogs and even inside our home she has shown a lot of improvement. I highly recommend training with Dog Training Elite as we felt hopeless just a couple months ago!
