My dog went from wild to the point of biting our furniture and jumping up on everyone to following all of our commands and being so well behaved. To be honest, it’s been an amazing program and our dog is so much calmer and with less anxiety. Highest recommendation!

I have always had dog envy when I saw someone jogging through a crowded park with their well behaved pup by their side or at the farmers market or a restaurant with a true companion; no jumping or barking, just content and happy together- well, thanks to DTE I have one of those dogs- of those relationships. It's been a serious game changer and my sweet recue pup garners the attention of everyone around us when my 4 year old walks him through parks, stores, and other outings effortlessly. I am now addicted and can't wait to work on more training. Thank you so much to Katie, Tyler and Matt- having all three of you come to our house at different times really gave us a holistic training program and built my confidence. I cannot thank you enough!!!

Tyler and Matt really helped us. Our dog is so loving but had severe behavioral issues when we got her (not her fault- rough puppy life before we adopted her) They are compassionate. Patient. Kind. Caring. Our dog LOVED them. Tyler was our main trainer and she LOVES him. They do NOT advocate punishment based training at all. They have a level of patience I only wish I could have on a daily basis. Our dog is happier and healthier now. Amazing.

Tyler was absolutely amazing! Our dog is wonderful and funny and amazing and pretty gosh darned smart, yet he still had bad habits and a lack of ability to understand some basic commands. Tyler turned all that around and is pretty much a miracle worker. We even asked for something off the menu in our last session and I’m not kidding, Tyler had him doing the off menu item within four minutes. ❤️🐶❤️ I wish I had those skills!

Can’t put into words how incredible this program was for our dog Bean and our lives. Before we started classes we could barely go anywhere with our Dog and have people over because of his reactivity and jumping. After just one In hone session the jumping was eliminated and having people over was no longer something we had to worry about. Tyler was so helpful in personalizing the program for our needs, he even met us at a dog park to help with Bean’s reactivity around other dogs. Don’t waste your time with other trainers, try Dog Training Elite!

Dog Training Elite is a fantastic group to work with! They tailored our training program to target the specific undesirable behaviors. Tyler and Matt are so knowledgeable about dog behavior and training tactics. We contacted DTE after our dog, Cooper, bit another dog. We didn't know what to do as he was becoming increasingly reactive to other dogs. Matt and Tyler reassured us that we weren't at a dead end and that dog reactivity is normal. They gave us the tools we needed to allow Cooper to succeed and with a lot of practice and consistency he has improved significantly! I would recommend DTE to anyone looking for quality dog training!

All of the trainers at Dog Training Elite are amazing but Tyler was definitely our favorite! He is very knowledgeable when it comes to dog behavior and training. We learned so much from him and he was always reassuring and encouraging, even when it wasn’t the easiest. I now have the training and confidence to take my dog on walks and to the park more often. The trainers at Dog Training Elite are very professional and if you’re thinking about hiring a trainer, they are worth the investment!

The only dog training you’ll ever need! Matt and team are fantastic, super knowledge, professional and great teachers. They taught the lessons to us as owners as much as our dog, which helps to reinforce the right behaviors. I’ve had dogs my whole life and wish they all would have had this training. Our family is much better balanced as a result of these approaches, we’ve benefited from both obedience and ESA training. If you have a dog training need, Dog Training Elite and Matt are the place to go!

We are so happy our friends referred us to dog training elite! We had previous training that wasn’t sticking with our dog so decided to try this. I wish we would have known about them beforehand because after just the first session we couldn’t believe how well he was doing! Our trainer, Tyler, was so awesome!! He was informative and patient with us, answered any questions we had throughout the process and very reliable. I never would have thought we could have our dog come to us and also be off leash in just a session or two, but he did!! So I can’t say thank you enough to Tyler because our life has changed because of this! At first we were hesitant, because of the price and because we weren’t sure if it would work but we knew something had to change. I would do it all over again for just how much our dog has learned over the 6 weeks, it’s crazy!! My advice to you would be, DO IT!!! You won’t regret it!! We just have so many good things to say about Tyler and the dog training elite company altogether and would recommend them to anyone we know.

Dog training elite StL was awesome! This was a learning experience for me too! It was such a joy watching Nico transform into an obedient dog. Highly recommend. Tyler addressed all concerns we had with Nico. I’m so pleased with how well Nico has progressed. Big thank you to the DTE StL family!

From the start Matt and Tyler were awesome! The knowledge and expertise these gentlemen have to offer far exceeded any expectations. We rescued our pitbull Nico right off the street without hesitation. However, we had no idea what we we’re in for. You name it he did it. Lunging, barking, jumping, knocking over house plants, jumping all over the furniture, and so on and on. Fast forward to now, it’s a night and day transformation. Our pup still wags, jumps, and plays just like his normal goofy self...with one tiny difference, he listens. When you tell him off, he gets off. When you tell him quiet he stops barking. When you tell him sit, he sits. I can’t express how grateful we are for everyone involved in our experience with DTE. Alicia, Matt, and Tyler thank you all! As well a special thanks to Cowboy and Wolfe, what awesome dogs!!! We will definitely recommend you to anyone and everyone we meet. Consider us lifetime and future clients!!! Long story short, would we recommend DTE? YESSSSSS YESSSSSS WE WOULD!!! 🐶🐶🐶 Thanks again everyone, can’t wait to see you at group training!

I hired Dog Training Elite St Louis to come to my home in St. Peters, MO to do a general obedience refresher for my dog Milo, and to specifically work with him on dog aggression. I am exceptionally pleased with the work that Tyler and Matt did with Milo. His dog aggression issues subsided after only a few sessions and walks are a much more pleasurable experience for the both of us. I was mostly looking for Milo to be less reactive to other dogs while on a leash but I have also been given the added perk of him walking perfectly at a heel with or without a leash. Amazing transformation. Couldn’t be happier!

I’m not even sure I can put into words how amazing this training program is. It’s the third training program we have tried in order to work through my dog’s reactivity issues. Before we started, we could barely go on a walk without her reacting to every person, dog, or motorcycle we saw. Now, having only completed the individual training sessions, her reactivity is almost completely gone. She is more confident, more relaxed & so much better behaved. The trainers are professional, knowledgeable & so helpful with anything you need. I can’t recommend Dog Training Elite enough!!

Tyler was awesome! His guidance helped us get our dog under control on walks and curb the barking in the house. We even saw improvement after just the first session. Thank you, Tyler! Looking forward to group classes!

Matt and Tyler were a dream to work with and miracle workers with our dog. Extremely professional and diligent in their work. Our in home consult our dog was nipping to where he was nearly pulling my shirt off. He really was showing off all of his behavior issues, where you’re completely embarrassed of their actions. Matt addressed each of the issues and how he could help us, he even had his dog along to show off how well the training is on just a 4 month old pup. After our first session we had an immediate relief, our dogs nipping and barking was noticeably reduced. We get compliments consistently on our dogs behavior. His recall on is name is amazing where we are comfortable to have him off leash, we also love using place when people come to the door. Matt and Tyler made our lives so much easier with their work with our dog. We cannot thank them enough!

Would highly recommend using Matt at dog training elite if you want fast and reliable results. My dog made significant progress within just one week of working with Matt and Tyler.

Matt is an excellent trainer! He gave me the confidence and the tools to teach my pup to be a well behaved pet. No more jumping up on people and excessive barking.

Matt and his team were first rate in their approach to training for our new puppy. He worked with us on understanding the best way to start of puppy off on the right foot with the basics including potty training, crate training and general puppy behavior and commands. We have had many dogs over the years but it was very beneficial to bring them in for our new puppy!

We did 6 lessons with Matt at our home. Our 12-mo Newfoundland has noticeably improved, and is much easier to live (and walk) with. Matt is professional and prompt - and clearly knows his stuff. It is also up to the owner to implement the techniques, and this provides a good opportunity to work with and bond with your dog.

Our 8 month old toy poodle puppy is loved by everyone who meets him. He thinks everyone wants him to jump on them and won't stop until you give him attention... rub his belly!!! His excitement needed to be under control and he needed to be taught he is not the boss and he needs to listen and do simple things we want him to do. Dog Training Elite works 100% - but you do have to continue to practice what you have been taught. I think it is 35 - 40% the dog being trained and 60 - 65% the owner being trained. I took Bentley to my workplace and my coworkers said he seems like a totally different puppy. I didn't have to build a barricade around my cubicle so he would not run around the office like a crazy little puppy. Matt was awesome and I would recommend him to anyone who needs training for their dog.
