Our service is designed for people who live busy lifestyles and therefore do not have the time to travel to a training center, and those who seek to be gratified pet owners; whose dogs love and respond to their owners on an ongoing daily basis.

The "Elite" training philosophy

If you are experiencing behavioral problems with your dog, such as jumping, biting, and barking, then in-home training is the approach needed to solve the problem. Whatever training you require will be tailored to your needs.

“Elite” dog training differs from trainers who claim they can solve your dog’s problems in (1) 3-hour session. Elite Dog Training School will properly structure a course that best suits the individual owner and dog’s needs. Rather, clear objectives are achieved progressively without causing the dog undue stress from prolonged training by scheduling a series of shorter training sessions.

"Elite" Dog Training School
Our Training Method

Amongst “Professional” dog trainers, there are various opinions/methods of successfully training your pet. The most popular methods are “Treat Training” and “The Elite Method”. As a professional trainer with over 30 years of experience, I have only seen dogs maintain their level of” obedience” using “Repetition and Consistency.”

Here is the simple difference:

Food Training: This training method may simply be called “Bribery.” Your pet will only respond to commands with food (treats) as incentive rewards.” Take the food away, and your dog will simply not listen.”

Repetition and Consistency: Dogs are pack animals which want to please their owners and people in general. A dog that is thoroughly trained is truly” Elite” amongst others. The reason is that the “training process includes consistent praise, monotone voice commands, and repetition”; which slowly becomes part of the dog’s “inbred behavior.” As long as your dog feels that they are “pleasing” you, they will do anything in the world for you, including providing both you and your family unconditional love.

“Elite” Trained Dogs: “Tails will Wag, and Owners will Brag”

In-Home Training

The best way to get results in training your dog is to set up a training situation where learning is quick, easy, and rewarding to your dog. Like us, if learning comes easy, and success brings us a lot of praise, we look forward to learning more. Most training courses are designed to set the dog up to make mistakes and get corrections. “Elite” dog training places your dog in the situation of always being successful and receiving a lot of praise. This training method, combined with your dog’s desire to please and be an accepted member of a human family, is always successful. The training quickly gets your dog wanting to do things for you instead of having to do things for you. If your dog is doing things for you because they want to, they will quickly stop doing things (bad habits) for the same reason.

Let’s look closer at ways to eliminate this “Unacceptable Behavior”.

Easy Methods to Approach Problem Behavior

Benefits Of Home Dog Training

The most successful method of eliminating everyday behavior problems is in your own home. After all, almost every one of these problems first took place in the home. Therefore, the cure involves teaching your dog to behave appropriately in different situations when interacting with humans and with other dogs. Contrary to popular opinion, home dog training doesn’t have to be complicated, frustrating or boring for you or your dog. In fact, by following a step-by-step, in-home training program, your dog can be taught that training is fun, using various playful activities. At the same time, your dog will adapt perfectly with well-behaved manners and a clear understanding of acceptable behavior. Remember, you and your dog must learn what techniques work best to solve the problems. This should be accomplished through training from an expert source. This means that you will also need to learn how to communicate properly with your dog. Once you master the right communication and training techniques, you will surely be able to resolve your dog’s behavior problems and have a pet that will be the “Elite” envy of everyone you come into contact with.

What Problems Can Home Dog Training Deal With?

Some of the most common problems that effective in-home training can quickly resolve are aggression, digging, bolting, whining, pulling on the leash, and separation anxiety. You will also want to use in-home training to ensure that your dog always exhibits superior behavior. Different techniques are used to resolve each behavior problem, although some techniques can be used for more than one of these problems. Home dog training is also widely recognized for its effectiveness in quickly eliminating your dog’s aggressive behavior towards people and even towards other animals. Further, it is also ideal for letting your dog understand which areas are off-limits and which actions are unacceptable (jumping up on visitors, begging at the table, etc.). Both the owner and the pet reach new levels of success with in-house obedience training. It can also benefit your dog by reducing the amount of separation anxiety he feels whenever you leave him alone in the house for long periods of time.

The Importance Of Following Breed-Specific Advice

Different breeds have different personalities and respond to in-home dog training techniques in different ways. Therefore, if you are planning to buy more than one dog or if you happen to prefer having dogs of different breeds, I strongly suggest that you look for an in-home dog training manual that discusses training techniques for more than one dog breed or specializes in the Breed you are dealing with. This will help ensure that your specific questions about certain dog breeds will be answered fully.

Basic Training Commands

Some of the most basic and important dog obedience commands are “heel,” “sit’,” stay,” “down,” “come,” and “drop it.” These may seem like very simple commands, but they are more than just cute little tricks. They are actually the keys to controlling your dog’s daily manners and discipline. It can also strengthen the bond that you have with your dog. So you can see, even from these six little commands, that you can shape and regulate your dog’s behavior and obedience quickly and easily. It is important to remember that your dog is always learning. Your responsibility is to ensure he learns only good habits and does away with the bad. To do this, you first have to understand and accept that dogs learn things differently than we do. If you choose in-home dog training with the thought that your dog will learn in the same manner that humans do, then you are just setting yourself and your dog up for failure. In fact, you could even make his behavior problems become worse.

Remember that you, too, will need to learn and maintain the training commands for your dog to maximize its training experience. "Elite" training is an ongoing experience for both the handler/handlers and the pet. That is why each program will include a session for the handler to learn these techniques.

Home Dog Training vs. Obedience School

What is so important about in-home dog training? Couldn’t you just send your dog to obedience school? Technically, you DO have a choice of enrolling your dog in obedience school. But, as more and more satisfied owners discover, training conducted in the home atmosphere is a cost-effective alternative that delivers unmatched results. Please don’t forget that “Home” is where the dog usually displays negative behavior and is also where training can be most effective. Besides, if your dog does not obey you at home, you cannot expect it to obey you anywhere else. This is why in-home dog training is often more preferable to obedience school training. While it is often more advisable to practice in-home dog training rather than bringing your dog to obedience school, you may still need the help of a professional when you begin training in extreme cases of severe aggression, such as repeated stealing of objects, chewing, and growling. Where things have become truly uncontrollable. In most cases, in-home dog training will produce maximum results. Whether you’re conducting in-home dog training for a puppy or an adult dog, you can still develop them into a dog with perfect manners. All you really need is a reliable dog training method and a lot of patience. These will be your true “keys to success.”

Dog Training Tips To Stop Dog Jumping

Too often, owners are the cause of the bad behavior known as “Jumping Up.” From the puppy stage to adulthood, many puppies are allowed to jump up and be petted and loved. Then, the puppy grows into a full-sized adult that knocks you off your feet whenever it greets you or others. Training them is needed from the moment they become family members, regardless of their size. This means that greetings are only allowed with your dog standing on all four paws. It would help if you were consistent so your dog learns that no jumping is allowed. So tell all your friends and family not to let the doggy jump up. Thus, it is not great if mom enables the dog to jump up and dad says no every time because the dog gets way too confused.


Amongst the most feared and dangerous dog behaviors is “Biting.” Even the most aggressive dog can be trained to improve its behavior considerably. However, To successfully deal with dog biting problems, finding out how the behavior began will be necessary. The best way to get to the cause of the problem is to observe your dog. Watch how they react to different individuals (including children), situations, and other animals. Many dog owners who find themselves having to contend with dog biting problems often feel overwhelmed and end up getting rid of the dog. What you should do instead is get rid of the reason for the biting. It’s only logical that the dog will stop biting when they no longer have any reason to do so. 


Aggression can be born out of fear, anger, or a combination of the two. Essentially, when your dog bites, they either react to a previous stimulus, such as a traumatic event in their life, or attempt to assert dominance over the victim of the dog bite. Aggression based on “Fear” is very common amongst dogs that another dog may have attacked. This is also the case where the dog may have suffered from physical punishment from a previous owner. “Fear” based aggression stems from your dog attempting to raise their position in their perceived ‘Pack’ (the family) or being unclear of their position in the family’s hierarchy. In both cases, it is “key” for you as the owner to re-establish yourself as the ‘Alpha/Top Dog’ (Master.) By doing this, you are triggering submissive behavior in your dog while at the same time reassuring them that you will keep them safe. Remember, dogs being” Pack” animals in nature, rely on the Alpha Male (in this case ‒ you) for guidance and safety. The truth is that this Change Doesn’t Happen Overnight.


Patience and confidence are the key factors for successfully dealing with dog biting problems. Understandably, this problem can be very frustrating for a dog owner, especially since it may pose a danger to other people and even the owner himself. But, no matter how frustrating it is, the problem CAN be solved, and that is what you need to keep in mind.

Eliminate The Source Cause Of Dog Biting

Dog biting problems are simply the results arising from some other factor. By identifying and addressing that factor with patience and confidence, you can effectively eliminate the biting problems. Patience is especially needed when you are still trying to identify the source of the behavior. 

Become The “Top Dog” To Send Out Clear Signals Of Acceptable Behavior 

Ensure that you do not allow your dog to have his own way during this time. At the first signs of your dog attempting to bite, immediately give a command to correct the action. Be sure to give a command which you know your dog will understand. (“NO”) Do not expect your dog to immediately obey your command. More likely than not, it may be safe to say that you can expect your dog to DISOBEY you at this point. You should, therefore, be firm and consistent in giving the correction. Yelling will only increase your dog’s frustration with learning. This will not be acceptable behavior on your part. Let the dog know that no matter what happens, you stand your ground, and biting is not allowed. Dealing with dog biting problems can truly be a stressful experience, but once conquered, your dog will most certainly be “Your Best Friend.”

Why Train Your Dog?

Training is an essential part of raising puppies to become well-mannered dogs. Training a puppy doesn’t mean you’ll have to stop playing, cuddling, or spoiling them. It only means that you’ll have to spend extra time and effort in making sure that the puppy understands the acceptable behaviors and that they should never cross the limits of these behaviors. Dogs naturally need strong leaders; you should, therefore, take on that role in your puppy’s life. Common puppy behavior problems include nipping, excessive barking, and destructive chewing. The best way to deal with these behaviors is to firmly issue a command (No) each time your pet exhibits the unacceptable behavior. Only reward him when he exhibits acceptable behaviors. (a comforting pat and good boy/girl) Chewing, for example, is one of the most common puppy behavior problems and usually reaches its most intense levels when the puppy starts teething, which is when he is around 5-9 months of age. While this is perfectly normal behavior in young dogs, it must be addressed rapidly through aversion techniques. So, if you don’t want your puppy chewing through your furniture or clothing, you must provide him with something else to chew on.

Using Toys To Assist Training

There are lots of dog toys you can use to correct puppy behavior problems like destructive chewing. In order to prevent “boredom,” I suggest that you purchase an assortment of chew toys. If you notice your puppy starting to chew on furniture or other household items, issue a firm “NO” and then redirect your puppy’s attention to one of their chew toys. Your dog will quickly understand that there are things meant for chewing and others that are not. One very important reminder is for you to refrain from yelling at your dog or resorting to physical punishment. Your goal is to eliminate puppy behavior problems. Physical punishment simply increases negative behavior. Your dog will soon see you as the source of pain and start exhibiting the bad behavior only when you’re not around rather than refraining from that behavior altogether.


Remember that the best way to discourage bad behavior and completely eliminate puppy behavior problems is to reward good behavior. Positive reinforcement is much more effective in developing good behavior in your pets. An” Elite” trained dog establishes a lifelong committed relationship between you and your dog and ensures that “Dogs Tails Will Wag, and Owners Will Brag!!x
