Epilepsy is a common disorder, affecting approximately 3.4 million Americans. Living with epilepsy can be difficult for many individuals. Due to fear of falling or other consequences related to seizures, many epileptic individuals will avoid going out in public. This greatly reduces quality of life and independence. Fortunately, service dogs can be trained to assist those with epilepsy. A seizure dog is able to alert their caretaker and anyone nearby of an imminent seizure and protect their caretaker from injury or falling. The Americans with Disabilities Act allows individuals with disabilities, such as epilepsy, to bring service dogs anywhere with them in public spaces. The assistance of a seizure dog can empower those with epilepsy and increase their quality of life.

Dogs have the ability to detect changes in an individual’s smell right before an epileptic attack, which allows them to effectively warn their caretakers. Almost any dog can be trained to act as a seizure dog if they have the right temperament. If you or a loved one suffer from epilepsy, a seizure dog training program can be life changing. Dog Training Elite offers a specialized seizure dog training program.

The Seizure Dog Training Program

For specialized training, it is best to start with puppies. Our seizure dog training program is intensive and prepares your dog for a life of service. Service dogs must have a calm temperament and they must be first trained in obedience. Dogs that have aggressive, shy, or disobedient characteristics cannot be service dogs. After completing obedience programs, service dogs must undergo specialized skill training. An expert evaluation will determine whether or not the dog is suited for seizure alert services at this point. If so, they dog will be trained to detect oncoming seizures and warn the epileptic individual. Seizure dogs warn their caretakers in various ways, including: barking, close eye contact, pawing or licking, and or circling. Additional behaviors can be taught to protect the caretaker, such as breaking a fall by standing behind the individual, turning on lights or opening doors, and alerting others to the situation.

If you are looking for a seizure dog training program to assist an individual with epilepsy, Dog Training Elite is here to help. Our expert trainers are experienced with various types of service dog training programs. Seizure service dogs can bring independence, increased quality of love, and companionship.

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 15 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!

The whole Dog Training Elite Denver crew have been knowledgeable, dedicated and considerate. Our at home lessons have been inspirational and I'm excited to start the group sessions. Thank you for supporting our Veterans, DTE.

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!!

I have a 1.5 year old Dutch Shepherd. My fiancé and I got her from a breeder back in Virginia and have had problems with human and animal aggression since she was a puppy. We had previously gone through months of training at a facility not capable of training her in a way that produced permanent change. When we moved out to Arizona, I was in panic mode because I still had a dog that was untrained and aggressive. That's when I did some research and found DTE. Neal came out to my house for our free consultation and I couldn't help but hold my breath. See, I didn't have high hopes as I was at the point of believing my dog could not be helped. Man, was I wrong. Within 2 training sessions, my dog gained a confidence she didn't realize was possible. She became incredible obedient and was no longer compelled to react to people and animals we encountered on walks. After multiple individual training sessions, socialization group classes, and protection classes, I can honestly say my dog is one of the most well-behaved dogs I've ever seen. I cannot say enough good things about this company as a whole, but maybe that's because they have honesty changed my life. I highly recommend this company for any level of training, but especially if you have a dog similar to mine.

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!

DTESATX, is so responsive, efficient, professional and reasonably priced. Administratively, Maggie is the best. I wish more businesses had people like her working for them! She always extremely pleasant and responds very quickly to texts and is super efficient getting us signed up for our sessions and group classes. Our trainer, Dave, is very professional and no-nonsense, yet also very understanding of the challenges our daughter faces and how it affects her and her service dog in training. The support and guidance we get from him between training sessions shows that he is always available to his clients, around the clock. He is definitely passionate about what he does! We are extremely happy with our experience thus far and would highly recommend them to anyone.

The trainers are very good at what they do! I am training my puppy to be a therapy dog and in just a few months of working with them, he can stay, sit, come, walk perfectly on leash, settle, and many more commands. The trainers have been patient and professional. They first show you how to work with your dog and then offer feedback as they observe how you work with your dog. I am so happy with my dog, Gilly’s progress!

Colleen and her husband run a wonderful, loving dog training business. They are very friendly, knowledgeable and kind. My 5 month old pup is amazing! I get compliments when I take him to stores as he is more well behaved then a lot of the older dogs. I love that they come to you and teach you in your home. They respond well to emails or text with concerns or questions. I recommend using their trainers and methods. Trust the programs and you will have a wonderful dog to love forever! Well worth every penny spent!

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!

We first saw DTE at a home and garden show (when we did not have a dog), we were impressed by the focus and clarity with how the dogs reacted to the trainers. Fast forward almost 4 years and we remembered that encounter and we made the call to DTE for our consult. There are a lot of advertisements for dog training out there, and we interviewed several of them as we searched for who to walk with on our dog training journey. In the end, we went with our first choice, DTE, because these guys are the real deal. We trust DTE with our Heeler's training because they are passionate about what they do. They communicate commands and techniques, educate on behavior patterns, and implement safety measures for everyone in the home. We have fun at the weekend group classes, surrounded by other families who are all working towards the same training goals. A well-trained dog does not happen overnight, we work extremely hard at utilizing the training techniques and tools DTE has been guiding us on over the months and each week we see more and more progress. We would suggest the AZ DTE team to any one of our friends or those serious about dog training. We are so thankful to have them on our side.

The owner and the trainer Neil is an amazing guy. He knows his stuff! His dog training skills and experience are beyond compare and he is super nice and loves what he does.
Group classes are a little bit different and less organized, laid back in my opinion when Neil is not the one doing the class. Too many breaks and the classes are usually cut short. They are supposed to be an hour long but they are not. Suggestion: since the obedience classes are held in a park, trainers should arrive 10 minutes earlier to clean up the area from dog poop so that the owners don't have to watch every step they take and try not to step in it. The trainers do not show much effort to memorize "students'" names, it seems they always only refer to the same dogs because they only know these names.

Our dog has been going through the program for a few months now and has made tremendous progress! Berkeley is a rescue with extreme anxiety which comes across as aggressive in certain situations. Within the first practice he made great progress.  Now we are into our group classes and couldn't be more excited.  We have worked with Marcells the whole time and he is fantastic!! He takes his time and really get to know us, our concerns and Berkeley.
We have loved this program and can't refer them enough!!
