Dog Training Elite is the leading expert in guard dog training. Our experts will first examine your dog and determine if it is physically and mentally fit to handle guard dog duties. An old, overweight, or anxious dog will not make a good watch dog. A dog that has not been trained in basic obedience is not ready to be a watchdog either and must first undergo basic training. If your dog is fit for Dog Training Elite’s guard dog training program, we will set you up with one of our professional guard dog trainers.
Our professional dog trainers can work with you and your dog to develop a family pet that is loyal, friendly, and a valuable watchdog. All of our guard dog training is focused on pet first, protection second. We will not train dogs to attack that already have an aggressive temperament. Our professional dog trainers will put your dog through a variety of temperament tests, so he is prepared for any type of situation. We encourage both the protective and loving instincts of your dog, leaving you with a pet that is loyal, fun, and a great family companion.
Using commands and positive reinforcement
we can teach your dog to:
- Bark on command
- Quiet on command
- Hold an extended sit command
- Attack on command
Benefits of Hiring a Guard Dog Trainer Near You
Our dog trainers will work closely with you and any other family members that will interact with the dog to ensure positive relationships. A watchdog is ideal for a family that wants an extra sense of protection for their house, family members, and property. Dog Training Elite’s guard dog training program is focused on protection, not aggression. We train dogs to attack only when given command, and we hope it is a command you never need to give. It is always better safe than sorry, however, and a well-trained guard dog can give your family an extra sense of security in the case of an unfortunate situation.

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 OwnersWe empower Owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
SupportiveWe support Owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
InvolvedWe work with all members of the household.
Simplified & CustomizedWe plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
