About Me


Welcome to Elite Dog Training. My name is Rich Ehrenberg and I have been working with dogs for over 25 years. In addition to my academic training, I spent seven years mentoring at a suburban Illinois Animal Hospital, as a veterinary technician. I learned the art of dog training by working under the guidance of top ranked trainers for 5 years. On behalf of “Elite” dog training I offer 3 levels of training: Basic Training, Intermediate and Master.


Initially, I provide basic obedience, which lays the foundation for intermediate training, such as off leash training. At the master level, a choice of protection training, handicapped assistance, or advanced obedience is provided. I am personally involved with each dog, at each level of their training. This is the reason I am constantly able to fulfill my mission: “Elite” training dogs are trained with kindness and love, creating a finished dog that is well mannered, and respectful to it’s owner. Of utmost importance, “Elite” trained dogs return the love they receive during the training process. My mission is then complete. Love and compassion which I extend to my trained dogs is returned to there owners. Their “Tails Wag and their Owners Brag”.
