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.

💙 Blue and I have loved working with Dog Training Elite Oklahoma. Blue is becoming a Therapy and Service dog so he can help on multiple platforms. You can really see the passion D.T.E.Ok really has for what they do and the dogs feel it too! Really they do a great job of training us so we know how to speak K-9 🐶 What I love the most is how well behaved my boy Blue is 🥰 I take him everywhere with me and people are always incredibly impressed. Then they want to love on him, and because he's a therapy dog as well, he lives to allow them to do so 💙 It's been a true blessing to both 💙 Blue and myself to work with Dog Training Elite Oklahoma!

We've had a great experience with Dog Training Elite. Jamie has been wonderful with obedience training our Great Dane/Great Pyrenees, Chance. He was a very nervous and reactive dog that made walking and being around strangers a struggle. Over the past few weeks we've seen noticeable changes and can see his confidence growing. We're able to walk comfortably now and the trust between us and Chance is getting better everyday.

Grateful to DTE for truly taking the time and caring about our dog’s success. It is helpful to not have a one size fits all approach….they have taken the time to get to know us, our dog, and have helped all of us make progress. They have listened and been patient as we learn we are seeing improvements with each session. Thank you!!!!! Would highly recommend to any family who wants a happy, thriving dog.

My dog and I have had the best experience with Dog Training Elite. They have shown me how to building a trusting relationship with my dog that has in turn allowed him to trust me and it took our training to a whole new level. I am so excited to be working on a Therapy certification with my petite Golden Doodle and they have made it possible. I highly recommend Dog Training Elite for all of your training needs.

I love them they are all great they have helped Bella come so far and taught me a lot about a service dog requires. I’d take all my dogs to them if I had the money they are great.

We went to our first group training session today and it was so fun and well planned out. Our sweet boy did very well for his first session. We are looking forward to joining another group very soon. I highly recommend Dog Training Elite for any dog training needs you may have!! We love it.

Our family just adopted a very energetic Frenchie. Dog Training Elite came over and before she left, Sonny was responding to his name and basic commands.

My pup absolutely loved Kristin and David! He went from being absolutely unruly when someone walked in the door jumping and running around to sitting in one spot waiting to be called on. Kristin did puppy and obedience training with my labradoodle and it was well worth it!

Best dog trainers ever. I have worked with several other trainers. David and Kristin are by far the best.

Kristin, Jamie, David, and the other trainers have been great working with our 10 year old son and his dog spider.

Both David and Kristen are amazing trainers. I had a horrible experience with another training company. They both validated what happened and why I was so hesitant to start a new program and I’m so glad that we did because Asher has grown tremendously. I’ve noticed a difference in his behaviors. They are both professional, and also very supportive with making sure that my pup is given the best quality service, and I couldn’t ask for anything more. I highly recommend dog training elite you won’t be disappointed.

Kristen is incredible!! In just one session I see such an improvement. I love my dog and want to make sure he has the best chance at being out in the world with other dogs who might be reactive or worse. No bad dogs, just bad owners and I certainly didn't want to be one of those. I'm reassured that I chose the right training service and look forward to creating the best system for my fur baby and best friend. Can't recommend Kristin enough!

Our Sheltie is seven years old and pretty set in her ways. Her barking inside and outside of the house has grown to be such a problem. We have been with David and Kristen for just four weeks now and the barking has noticeably improved, not to just us but others that visit. In addition, she will come, sit and place on command. Not 100 per cent yet, but certainly so much better than she was. One can tell that David and Kristen truly love the animals they are training and want the dog to succeed. Their enthusiasm and kindness are evident and so well received by our dog. From the results we have seen in our dog so far, we can highly recommend DTE for yours!

Kristen and David have been amazing to work with. They have been patient with any questions I have. They ensure that I’m comfortable with each new session during and after each session. The techniques that they share are respectful and kind to both me and Minnie. I look forward to working with them on our training journey.

David & Kristen have been phenomenal to work with us and our Goldendoodle, Ginger. In three short lessons, Ginger has learned so much. So thankful for their thoughtful and consistent approach to training! I am excited about the additional training upcoming for Ginger.

The professionalism, the trainers, their joy in watching the dogs succeed is hands down this best part of DTE. I truly don’t know who was more excited for training days or group training, Delilah or us. Great people, worth the time and definitely worth the money. Thanks DTE! Each one of you are an answer to our prayers and a gift from God Himself. Thank you for what you do!
