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.

We help your dog become a valued companion and beloved member of the family. Read what our customers have to say and then give us a call!

We couldn’t be happier with Dog Training Elite. We started working with them at the puppy stage and decided to continue with training. Now my daughter has the perfect ESA dog for the support she needs. We have people tell us all the time what a well behaved dog we have and we owe it all to the trainers at Dog Training Elite!

Worth it! I selected this training program because they were the most professional of the companies I met with. Savannah has routinely been punctual, prepared and 100% focused on my dog’s (and my) learning. I have seen great progress in my dog’s obedience since we started. You definitely get out of this program what you put into it so plan time to train at home between sessions. They update their training techniques to what is most effective which means they care about your success in the program. One thing that could help clients like me stay on track is calling or sending reminders to book the next training session or attend the next class. Thanks Dog Training Elite!

Our 1 year old Rottweiler, Bear, completed Elite Training Camp with trainer Erin. This experience was an absolute life changer! Erin was amazing and made sure that she helped address the unique issues that we were experiencing. Before training, we had reached the point where we dreaded taking Bear out in public because he didn’t listen to us and was hard to manage. At home, he was always trying to assert his dominance. That all changed after working with Erin. She taught us how to get the very best behavior from Bear. We are happy to have such a well behaved dog and Bear is happy that he can go more places with his family. I absolutely recommend Erin and DTE.

They have been so supportive through my whole process. At first, I wasn’t sure if a service dog could help me and at the consultation they taught me all of the ways a dog could help me and recommended some breeds that would be a good fit. Then Colleen drove 3 hours to the breeder to do the temperament test on 2 potential puppies to make sure whichever we chose would be able to handle the training and expectations of his job. Then the hard part of picking between 2 adorable puppies … that was on us 😜. Training started 3 days after bringing the puppy home. Starting with the absolute basics! Through the puppy training, basic obedience and now public access we have worked with multiple trainers who are all aware of my needs and our pup’s personality. They have all been knowledgeable, kind, and patient with our pup and with me and all of my questions. Before this, I’ve never had a dog that would walk with a loose leash, now I have a 5 month old pup that everyone asks how he became so well behaved and stays by my side!!! I tell everyone about Dog Training Elite of Northern Utah! I can’t recommend them enough for all types of training, but especially for potential service dog needs.

Ella has been in training since December and LOVES her DTE’s trainers, Jake —who also performed the initial evaluation and gives her treats, and Mccall. Ella particularly enjoys learning with Mccall, because we theorized that, being the independent self-thinking great pyr puppy that she is, she sees in her the alpha female😂😂. The enrollment process went smoothly thanks to Kaycee, and she is always ready to answer questions and fix our schedule/issues either via email or on the phone. We can’t wait to meet the rest of the DTE’s staff members and to complete our service dog training successfully. Thank you, Dog Training Elite. Ella says woof woof.

Took my dog for service dog training (Platinum package). She had already completed a board and train, and was very trainable. DTE took that to the next level in what feels like absolutely no time at all. It's worth noting that the training really is what you make of it. Go to the group trainings. Listen to the trainers. Hold your dog accountable. Do your homework and continue the training at home. If you do all those things, you won't be disappointed with the results.

Dog Training Elite did fantastic with my very active Vizsla puppy. Haven’t done any of the group training sessions or started the service training yet, but if it’s anything like the first at home sessions, I’m sure it’ll be perfect. Thank you!

It took me over 6 months to research accredited, repeatable, legitimate, trustworthy and effective professional dog training business. Dog training Elite (DTE) (San Antonio, TX) was by far the goldmine I was looking for. They are extremelly knowledgeable about ADA laws and Service Companion behaviors. The team's patience is beyond professional, they are a caring community that take the time to ensure all there human and fur clients understand they are FAMILY. Whitney and Tammy thank you for your management professionalism and getting me and my fur baby established and integrated into the DTE Family first impressions set the tone for new clients. You both are truly appreciated. I am very impressed with the training my fur baby has received and I look forward to the next phase of his training. I am extremely impressed and grateful for Geneva, Wolf, Amanda and Adakias for their professionalism, expertise and passion of love they share with my fur baby. Job well done! I look forward to being part of the DTE Family. THANK YOU!

My puppy started their service dog training at 3 months old, and I was so impressed with how much he learned in just one week. We didn’t think it’d be possible because of how young he was, but the training facility really puts so much effort into instilling good behaviors. They have made it so easy for me to really keep it up on my end. One thing my husband and I really wanted was to invest in our dog with a good trainer, and highly recommend Dog Training Elite. They’ve worked with my schedule, and really want the best outcome for every dog! Love this place!!!!

Everyone is absolutely amazing. The trainers have tremendous depth of knowledge in a wide range of training and behavioral situations. McCall is awesome, she truly cared about our dog and made training sessions fun and exciting. She taught Bailey so much more than just sit. McCall not only helped train our dog but helped train us to be the best dog parents for our four legged child. We are so thankful we chose Dog Training Elite!

my service dog in training and I absolutely adore dte san antonio! the trainers have love her and helped build her confidence as well as mine as a handler! every time we walk in the door she gets so excited to see her ‘teachers’. the trainers at this facility also really go above and beyond to help with any kinks in the training and answer all of my questions immediately. i would recommend this facility to anyone looking for a service dog, or even basic obedience! i could go on and on about the staff here, they are incredible.

I cannot give enough praise to Savannah and the team at Dog Training Elite. I worked with shepherds for years teaching them the basics on leash for a rescue in town and I am flabbergasted at the transformation of mine. She is going to be a great companion for life thanks to this team. Cannot recommend them enough!
