"For over ten years, I have been committed to the dogs and dog owners in our local community. As the proud owner and training director of Elite Training Centers, LLC, I am thrilled to share our story of passion, dedication, and excellence in the realm of canine education.

At Elite Training Centers, my team of certified dog trainers, and I have been fortunate to work with dogs of all breeds and ages. The experience we have gained over the years has honed our skills and allowed us to stay ahead in an ever-evolving industry.

What sets Elite Training Centers apart is our comprehensive range of services. From board and trains to private lessons and day training, group classes, and in-home sessions, we offer tailored solutions to meet the diverse needs of our clients and their dogs. Whether you have a playful puppy or a mature dog, we can ensure that each training
program is crafted to suit the individual temperament and requirements of your four-legged companion.

Transparency and professionalism are at the core of our operations. As fully licensed and insured dog trainers, my clients know that their pets receive the highest standard of care. The safety and well-being of the dogs we train are paramount, and I am committed to upholding ethical conduct in all aspects of our business.

In a unique collaboration, Elite Training Centers has partnered with Free Range Doggie Daycare, providing a holistic blend of services. This strategic alliance allows dog owners to access a one-stop-shop for all their canine needs. From training sessions to socialization opportunities, and invisible fencing the partnership enriches the
overall experience for both dogs and their owners.
I am grateful for the local support that has propelled Elite Training Centers to where it is today. Our longevity in the
industry is a testament to our shared passion for nurturing relationships based on trust and cooperation. Our mission
extends beyond basic obedience; it's about enriching the bond between humans and their cherished pets.

As Elite Training Centers continues to play a vital role in shaping the local canine community, my unwavering dedication to excellence ensures that every dog passing through our programs leaves not just well-trained but also with a strengthened connection to their human companions. For those seeking a reputable and experienced partner in
their dogs training journey, Elite Training Centers stands as a beacon of trust, skill, and compassion."

Training Programs and Boarding


Expect a holistic approach that not only hones your dog's skills but also nurtures a stronger, more harmonious relationship. We emphasize effective communication, reinforcing positive behaviors, and cultivating mutual respect.

Our flexible Coaching & Day Training Programs offer versatility, available individually or in convenient packages of 4, 8, or 12 sessions.


Each session is meticulously designed to elevate your training experience and fortify the lifelong connection with your cherished canine companion.


Elevate your training journey with our In-Home Coaching or Day Training- where dedication meets expertise for a truly transformative experience!


We and our partners at Free Range Doggy Daycare and Overnight Camp pride ourselves on providing personalized attention, ensuring each dog has their dedicated kennel space. This cozy haven is a retreat where your canine companion can unwind, surrounded by their favorite toys, providing the perfect setting to relax and feel at ease when they're not out exploring or socializing. Our boarding services are designed to cater to your convenience and your dog's needs.


You have the flexibility to opt for a straightforward pickup and drop-off service for your dog's stay. Or, if you're looking to enhance their experience add training, grooming or add on  services, like walks or bedtime treats to their stay.


Choose boarding that goes beyond the ordinary!


Our Board & Trains are an accelerated training program that paves the way for lifelong behavioral excellence. Each program spans a period of 2 to 4 weeks, where your dog becomes a part of our training family, staying either at our daycare facility or with our trainers.

We provide regular report card updates and comprehensive training videos. These updates not only showcase the ongoing training program/progress your dog is making, but also guides you on how to reinforce and maintain these newfound behaviors.


As part of our Board & Train program, we offer two 90-minute handover lessons. These sessions which are designed to ensure seamless transfer back home, enables families to continue their dogs progress and, effectively manage emerging behaviors post-training.


Examples: Leash Pops/Corrections, Choke/Pinch/Shock Collars, Slip Chains etc..

All training for both private lesson coaching programs as well as our board and train programs use Positive Reinforcement,

Shaping, Capturing, and Management techniques. 


All our trainers hold certifications as professional dog trainers, ensuring expertise and knowledge in canine behavior and learning theory.


Additionally, our business operates with full licensing and insurance compliance.
