At Dog Training Elite Utah, we train personal protection dogs and high-level security dogs. Our K9’s are well-balanced protectors, highly obedient, and socialized. We like to say, “pet first, protector second”. A Personal Protection dog is trained to warn and protect on command, from any threats to your family, home, property, or business. Our personal protection dog training in Utah County is ideal for the person that wants a pet that is part of the family and knows how to defend you when needed.

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...

To begin with, they need to honor their word. Neal, "son of the founder" Mestas agreed to look into funding options for service dog training, the relevant charities specify communicating with training facility not client. DTE.AZ couldn't have changed their tune quicker!! ::Take heed:: Need beyond basic trai...

I thought I was ready for our pup! May not have continued to be a dog owner with Aidan and Dog Training Elite! They are the best!

We took our time to review and interview with various dog training companies before deciding to go with Dog Elite. We have been so happy with this decision! We decided when we got our wonderful Samoyed puppy that she would be the best therapy dog for those who are going through rough times and need a smile, Dog Elite h...

I'm sure they are fantastic dog trainers! With that said, they advertise for registration under their service dog training program even though they know that there is no official registration for service dogs, there is no legally recognized registration for service dogs, it is illegal to ask for a service dog's registr...

Very professional, and genuinely care about fixing your dogs behavior issues.

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...

I love this team, the people are top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
— Michael Bell, Posted September 19th 2017 on Facebook
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.

Our Utah Protection Dog Training Process

A free in-home dog evaluation is needed to assess if a family dog has the correct temperament to be properly and safely trained in protection work. A dog that is nervous, stressed, and driven by fear may not possess the qualities to safely pursue bite work training without being a liability to the family. Dog Training Elite Utah's family protection dog training process will ensure that a dog’s loving and social temperaments are retained as the protection skills are properly developed. A family pet that is properly trained to be a personal guard dog will see the following benefits:

  • A boost in confidence
  • Improved health and physical fitness
  • Improved communication, understanding, and bonding with handler
  • Decease in general anxieties, stress and nervousness
  • Increased obedience and overall happiness

We offer several Utah County dog training options for your pet to be a personal or family protection dog. For an intro to personal protection, start with our advanced personalized package which includes a high level of obedience required for personal protection work and introductory bite work. If you do not currently have a dog that is suitable for the program, call us today to discuss our personal protection dog training programs or schedule a free in-home evaluation.
