Local Trainers

All of our local dog trainers are trustworthy, willing to be there for our clients and love what they do.

Simplified & Customized

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.

Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.

We’ve had an exceptional experience with our dog trainer, especially with Deidre's guidance. Our journey began when our puppy was 10 weeks old and we dove headfirst into puppy training, eager to mold him into a therapy dog for hospital volunteer work. However, our optimism was quickly overshadowed by a frustrating hurdle: the dreaded habit of poop consumption. Feeling overwhelmed, we reached out to the trainer for help. They were incredibly supportive, offering a variety of solutions to address the issue. When the initial attempts fell short, they promptly provided alternative approaches, ensuring we never felt alone in our struggle. Thanks to their guidance, our puppy, now 5 months old, has overcome this unsavory habit! We're immensely grateful for their expertise in navigating this challenging aspect of puppyhood. Having successfully completed the puppy training program, we've seamlessly transitioned into the obedience program. Witnessing our puppy's progress has been truly remarkable and encouraging. He is developing into a patient, well-mannered dog and has learned many obedience skills that we can build on.

Elite dog training is the absolute best of the best!!! We have a service dog for my 9 year old, and between Evan, and Kaycee I couldn’t ask for better people to work with! They have gone absolutely above and beyond to help our pup do any, and everything possible to help our daughter live the most independent life despite her chronic health problems. The amount of time, and work they have put into Reggie these last two years is astounding. Because of them Reggie is able to spend countless weeks in the hospital with my 9 year old, he goes to school with her everyday, and goes everywhere she goes. He is by far the best dog ever because of the incredible people at Elite. You can absolutely tell the people at Elite love what they do! 5 stars is not enough to describe what an incredible company this is!! We LOVE Utah County Elite dog trainers!!

A knowledgable, well-maintained, and established dog trainer run by consummate professionals. We work closely with the trainer Deidre with our two-year-old german shepherd and could not recommend both her and the business more.

We have been working with them to train our very high energy and sometimes anxious Husky/Doberman 1yr old dog, and after just the first session he's been a totally different dog! Daidre has been amazing with him and very thorough with each session making sure our dog and we as his owners know what to do! They've been great to work with and I am so glad we chose them to help train our dog (and us) so we can give him his best life! Highly recommend!

Deidre is wonderful. She genuinely cares, pays attention, gets to know you and your dog, and then makes sure to focus on the areas that will make a difference with the lifestyle you want with your dog. We were in a hard position with our cute puppy and were having increasing problems with some fear based aggression that we didn’t know how to handle. She showed us what to do and things have improved enormously. He’s becoming better all the time and has gained so much confidence. Our lives are much less stressful than before. Thanks Deidre!!

If I could give more stars I most definitely would! There really is not enough words that can be said about this company. Our Frenchie George was a very stubborn and hard headed frenchie and if you own one then know what I’m talking about. The methods they use are awesome! It really opened up our eyes on how this training needs to be done and it’s extremely effective and starts to work right away. Thank you to those of you who helped us with our Georgie boy! 20 stars should be the review

This company really is THE BEST hands down! Our 4 month old Cavapoo Teddy went from a sweet and sour little velociraptor into the cuddliest, most obedient puppy in only a couple of sessions! Evan, Kaycee, and Deidre are so knowledgeable and professional, but also very personable and compassionate. This has been nothing, but the best dog training experience that we could have hoped for, and it’s been amazing to see the night and day difference in Teddy each day we practice our new skills. We have 3 teens and a toddler, and despite how much we love him, Teddy might not have been able to stay had we not been able to stop the territorial biting that started a couple months after we got him- especially after he bit our toddler’s face and punctured a couple of hands. To say they saved us is an understatement, and now we feel extremely blessed to have their help for the rest of Teddy’s life. Thank you Dog Elite Training, we will be singing your praises to everyone who cares to listen! 💖

Evan and his team have worked tirelessly with me from the start. He drove several hours to help me choose the perfect pup! The team at Dog Training Elite was there for all of my silly questions and late night freakouts! Thanks!

Dog Training Elite has been a game-changer in our journey to train our lab as a psychiatric service dog for the police department. Their unique approach not only focuses on training the dog, but also empowers us as handlers, fostering a continuous cycle of learning and growth. Kaycee and Evan have been pivotal in this process, providing invaluable support and expertise. Kaycee's promptness in addressing our questions and Evan's effective training methods have made the experience smooth and enjoyable. Dog Training Elite stands out for their dedication to both dogs and handlers, making them the top choice for professional dog training. If you apply what they teach, YOU WILL SEE RESULTS. We love them! Highly recommended.

Evan and Deidre are amazing! Charlie is a 4 month old German Shepard and we could not ask for a better pup. She is currently in puppy training with her last one sessions left and excelling, we will definitely be moving forward. We are so grateful and they truly are the last dog trainers you’ll ever need.

Dog Training Elite has changed my puppy from an obnoxious pain to the dream dog I hoped he could be. Evan's work showed me not only the capability of my dog but the potential and love my puppy has. I could not be happier with the training and the trainers. They are over the top amazing.

I have a very adorable, loving affectionate bernedoodle who is going on 2 yo. He is also very determined, stubborn and naughty!! I needed a serious action plan and I was so happy to find dog training elite to come to my home. Evan the owner was great to come out and meet with us first to explain the program. His dog Echo is trained by him to perfection! Kaycee is the frontline for this business and she does a phenomenal job in answering all questions and concerns and was there for me throughout the whole program. She is so kind and understanding as well as responsive. Deidre and Meghan were the ones who came weekly to walk us through the e-collar training commands. They were great. Meghan is new to the program but doing awesome. Deidre accompanied her and she is absolutely a natural at what she does. The whole team is great and I am already seeing big success with my baby boy! I am so happy to have their program as I can now enjoy him that much more as well as not worry about his safety running away and not coming when called. I am looking forward to the group classes now where we can build on what we’ve already learned. Thank you to the whole team! You guys are the best!!

Let me start by saying we have 4 kids (5 and under) and our 3 year old was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes this year. We had no idea how we were going to manage a puppy, let alone train it to be a service dog on top of our already chaotic lives. Evan came to help us choose a puppy out of the litter. We started scent training at 8 weeks old and he is now giving us live alerts at 5 months! We’ve had many trainings with Evan and it’s very cool to watch. He knows his stuff! We’ve had great training lessons with Kacey as well, and she is always available to answer our questions. This process has been overwhelming at times and she is our cheerleader that keeps us going! We love her! These people have given us the tools and support we needed, and we are so excited to see the end result. I would recommend these trainers to anyone!

Our experience with this company has been awesome from the very beginning. When we called Kaycee to find out about the process and ask questions, she was so helpful and friendly. Evan met us to evaluate the puppy we were looking at and he was great. Deidre and Megan came for the first training session last week, and were so great at explaining the process and answering all questions, and told us to call with any more.

I don't normally write reviews, but DTE has been an absolute god send. I have been in need of a service dog for years, but it was never a viable option for me financially. Not only have they made this training program affordable, they are available 24/7 to answer my questions. They come to you for the first many weeks of training, which has been so helpful with my health conditions. Every person I have worked with has been absolutely wonderful. Special shout out to Kaycee, Evan, Deidre (I'm sorry-spelling?), and Megan for their kindness, patience, encouragement, and just overall amazingness. You cannot got wrong here.

Dog Training Elite has been the best dog training experience ever! We had done training through other services with no results for our poor anxious girl and were slowly losing hope. Jeff and Dallin have transformed her into a confident and obedient girl! Walks are no longer a pain and our girl is thriving! I would 10/10 recommend the platinum package to anyone who has an anxious and reactive dog.

I am so glad I chose to go with DTE. Evan came out to do my assessment with my dog reactive pit bull spartan, and I loved the way he interacted with spartan. He was not pushy trying to get me to sign up with them which was a nice change from other assessments I have had. Ryan and Deidre worked with me and my dog so patiently and not only made him better, but made me better. After our first session, there was already a big difference in Spartans behavior. Today I finished my last one on one session and spartan is an entirely different dog in the best way possible! I could not thank the team enough!

We recently started having our dog trained so she can be a service animal for our daughter. I was amazed that only a few weeks in I was able to tell our dog (who thinks she has to be attached to us at all times) to stay, and she stayed in one place while I exercised. I was even more amazed when I then went upstairs, took a shower and came back downstairs to find her still in the same place I’d told her to stay. Such a win! The trainers have been so good to explain every part of the process and the why behind everything. They answer all our questions and concerns with so much patience and kindness, no matter how silly they may be. This is making a huge difference for us and our dog.

After a week our dog, Harley, was obedient to commands like off and come even when faced with distractions like cows and goats. He, being a herd dog, that was huge. Thanks to Daidre and dog training elite program. We are super impressed and grateful.

It has been a fantastic experience working with Dog Training Elite Utah County to train our now 4-month-old puppy (we started when he was nine weeks old). We have had the pleasure of working with trainers Ryan and Deidre. We have undergone Puppy training (w/ Ryan) and are three weeks into obedience training (w/ Ryan & Deidre). Ryan and Deidre are so well-prepared and patient with my family and me. We can't speak more highly of their training sessions. We are new to dog training and appreciate their time, expertise, and effort. Our puppy is thriving. We took our puppy on his first experience at Petsmart. We walked in, and a dog immediately barked aggressively; dogs were everywhere. In one of our sessions, Ryan taught us how to handle those types of situations to ensure our pup felt secure and to show him how to trust us, and it worked like a dream. We used many of the tools we had learned in training during that trip; he sat, heeled without pulling, and placed so patiently and calmly. We were so proud of our pup. We wouldn't have been able to have the success we did without Ryan, Deidre, and Dog Training Elite. We also want to share what a joy Casey has been to work with. Casey is always so cheerful and patiently answers any questions we have had. If you are in need of a company to help you train your dog, this is the place to go. They are affordable, their customer service is top-notch, and their trainers are exceptional.
