Reopening In-home & Group Training

Dog Training Elite Utah County has been approved to reopen and resume offering our in-home and group dog training classes in Utah County. We have reorganized our training programs to fit social distancing and heightened sanitation measures.

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 you 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!

In order to keep you and our training staff safe and healthy, we ask for your assistance on the following protocols:

In-Home & Office Guidelines

  • If you or anyone in your household becomes sick, please inform us immediately. We can cancel and reschedule training sessions at no extra cost.
  • Please follow general hygiene guidelines before and after your session, including hand washing.
  • Thoroughly clean and disinfect all training tools before and after the session.
  • If possible, most of the training session will take place outside - in your backyard or at a nearby park.

Group Class Guidelines

  • We are limiting the size of group training sessions, so you must sign up online first. In order to ensure everyone has equal access to training sessions, please do not sign up more often than once every other week.
  • Only one person is permitted per sign up. Multiple dogs are ok, but if they need more handlers you must sign up for each person individually.
  • If you or anyone in your household becomes sick, you must reschedule.

A year ago I had training sessions with Dog Training Elite that changed our lives. My dog is an 8 lb poodle mix and had become a “runner” and had also developed some fears of other dogs. Their training drastically changed the relationship I have with my dog. In just a few sessions she learned so many commands an...

Trevor far exceded expectations with our boxer. We did a board and train session where Brody spent 4 days with at Trevor’s house. He came back a new dog. Trevor has also reached out a few times after to make sure Brody is doing well. Thanks Trevor, Emma and DTE!!

I have been working with DTE for many months now and I am beyond grateful to have found them. You will not find better or more kind trainers around. They are always happy to help with questions, and have worked around a number of unforeseen health issues with my dog to ensure I have a trained service dog. If I could gi...

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...

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...

Training my service dog so wonderfully. Last trainer you'll need.
— Anthony Lewis, Posted January 20th 2018 on google
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...

Helped train my Baby Blu become the service dog I need in my daily life. I know have the ability to lead a somewhat normal life after 20 years in the military.

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. He was patient with me as well as my dog, which I appreciated. I was impressed with his knowledge and with the knowledge...

The absolute best! Very disciplined training! We have a rescue male golden retriever( an angel), a rescue female Basenji mixed grand dog and I recently rescued another female mixed breed off the streets.

My daughter and I had aggression issues with her 5 year old rescue dog and a dog I rescued off the streets,somewhere around 1 year old. Serious issues, fights that escalated to severe biting, both me and one of the dogs.
After trying several internet training techniques to no avail,we contacted DTE after recommendat...

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.
— Art Smith, Posted June 5th 2017 on google
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.
— Randy Fujita, Posted June 3rd 2017 on google
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...

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.

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!
