Therapy Animal Training

A Dog Training Elite Utah facility therapy dog is highly trained to have a positive impact on the health and well being of both individuals and community health.

Therapy Animal Program

Once you and your dog have basic commands in place (meaning your dog will successfully come, sit, stay and obey other basic commands), they are invited to join us for additional training that is highly valuable in further building upon already learned techniques. Our dog training classes in Utah County are designed to place yourself and your dog in public places (surrounded by other dogs, people, smells and sounds), so that you can train your dog to obey you... regardless of the many distractions screaming for their attention!

Dog Training Elite Utah is the last dog trainer you’ll ever need!

Called Dog Training Elite (DTE) to get some advice on how to work with my aging dogs on some behavioral issues they were having due to my demanding travel schedule. Aidan scheduled an appointment (on a Saturday) to accommodate my schedule and provided honest, candid feedback and some innovative ideas/strategies on ho...

John and Aidan are excellent trainers! They were so patient with us and our dog. Our dog is so well behaved. He caught on quickly and we have so much more confidence in him. We are so happy with the results. Everyone we spoke with on the phone or texted were so helpful and kind, as well. We highly recommend Dog Trainin...

I thought I had made a terrible mistake after adopting my 80 pound, Leonberger puppy. He was destroying my home and yard. He wouldn't come to me when called and he was terrible to walk. Being such a strong dog made it impossible for me to handle him. Aiden, my trainer, worked miracles with him. He is a great dog tr...

Best money we have spent. Our dog has a very confident personality and was not willing to listen. Dog Training Elite, has taught us how to help him behave better as well as keep his confident personality. We love being able to take him places and know that he will listen to us and stay in control especially around o...

I took my miniature dachshund to traditional puppy training classes and was disappointed when our home program failed. With months of training under our belt, at 6 months old my dog spent hours a day barking at anything going by, was still having difficulty with potty training and didn’t consistently follow any comma...

Before purchasing our puppy, I read many training books and I thought I knew how to train her. However, our puppy didn’t do what the books said she would. We couldn’t have kept our dog without Dog Training Elite. Hiring them was money well spent so that we can enjoy our dog for years to come. We appreciate their cu...

We have been using Dog Training Elite for about 6 weeks. We have always loved our dog but he was getting to be too much to handle. One day when my wife came back from a run in tears because the dog was pulling so much, I knew something had to be done. If we could not get him to change his behavior, he was going to have...

Have a Doberman that was getting too big and hard to handle. I thought I'd have to get rid of him. Tried one last chance with dog training elite. After a single session I had a new dog. After four sessions my dog is just a pleasure. I get comments daily about how well trained he is. Yesterday I had him with me in heavy...

Aidan was amazing for my little muggin! We have stopped the bolting, aggressive behaviors have improved significantly, and the potty habits have changed dramatically. Aidan was so good to me as well.

The absolute best! Very disciplined training!

This was the best thing I have done for my dogs. My dogs learned quickly are it has made a much happier home. I love when people comment on how well behaved by dogs are.

Dog Training Elite helped me get my Baby Blu Service Dog certified. They met with me weekly and taught me what was needed to get her properly trained to be beside me in public. Don't know what I would have done without them. I would recommend Dog Training Elite to anyone who is looking into a Service Dog.

Henry was pretty disobedient before, doing what he wanted when he wanted, and didn't listen to me at all. He got away with everything and it was making me crazy. I was unhappy and I'm sure he was too because I was always yelling at him. After training, he is super responsive. He responds when I call him, he isn't bark...

Aiden is the best dog trainer I've ever had. We accomplished so much is such a short time! I have two dogs, one a 2 year old Labradoodle and a 6 month old Goldendoodle. The puppy was crazy and out of control. He is totally normal and very obedient. I can take both with me anywhere without a leash and the stay right wi...

Dog training elite has done miracles with my two dogs. Best behaved dogs at any park I take them too. Family and kid friendly first. Protection work has been amazing as well. Aidan and his team are next level. Highly recommend Dog Training Elite

Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (aka "Pavlovian"or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In it's simplest form (after proper conditioning) -- when owner says 'sit', dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter the behavior we encounter.

  • Empowering Owners

    We empower owners to train so 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 household.
  • Simplified & Customized

    We plan training around 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 owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings

    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

Our processes allow for us to easily complete our training services at your home or within the environment where behaviors manifest— such as in the park or around other dogs while you walk through the neighborhood!
