About Dog Training Elite Franchise

Dog Training Elite Founder John Mestas has been a dog lover for as long as he can remember! From an early age, John knew that he wanted to pursue a career that allowed him to interact with dogs and help them live their best lives. With over 40 years of experience as a professional dog trainer and Competitive Training Director, John and his team of experts were able to develop a successful, proven dog training method that incorporates a balance of positive reinforcement tactics with gentle redirection to teach dogs- and their owners- how to effectively communicate with one another.

Dog Training Elite offers convenient private and small group classes to our clients in the comfort of their homes and local parks, in communities across America. In addition to our original obedience training and behavioral modification services, we now offer specialized services such as Therapy Dog, Service Dog, and Personal Protection Training. As the needs and demands of our clients change, we continue to add new, innovative services and approaches. Thanks to the unique, successful in-home training model perfected by John and his team, what began as a small movement among dog training companies has grown exponentially.

We have earned a reputation for excellence through our highly personalized training programs, VIP-level service, convenience, and emphasis on positivity in our proven methods. When starting a dog training business, here's what separates us from the rest of the pack:

  • Personalized Programs
    • Our trainers meet clients at their homes, conduct a comprehensive assessment, and select a personalized, multi-environmental program that will provide the best fit for dogs' individual needs.
  • Convenient In-Home Service
    • By conducting our training appointments in the homes and neighborhoods of our clients, we're not only providing an industry-leading level of convenience, but also keeping overhead investment costs low for Dog Training Franchise Owners without the need of having a brick and mortar location.
  • Exclusive Dog Training Method
    • Our proven, proprietary training method is based around the "Classical Conditioning" (AKA "Pavlovian") model, and incorporates positive reinforcement balanced with the use of a safe electronic collar, which does not harm the dog and serves to redirect attention with a simple tap.
  • Advanced Training Services
    • We offer 7 different training services, as well as Group Classes designed to place clients and their dogs in public scenarios with numerous distractions, so dogs can practice obeying their owners regardless of their environment.
  • Superior Customer Service
    • Dog Training Elite is known for the ongoing exceptional support and VIP treatment we give to our clients. Any dog signed up for one of our programs is a part of the Dog Training Elite family for life!

    • The Dog Training Elite opportunity is ideal for people who seek a career that offers them a little more time to spend with family, or to concentrate on starting a dog training business and growing it.

The Dog Training Elite Method

Our proven training method emphasizes a balance of positive reinforcement with gentle redirection, empowering dogs- and their owners- to communicate and work together more effectively in even the most distracting environments. Dog Training Franchise Owners are trained to utilize the method in all sessions in order to provide the best, most successful results for clients and their dogs.

In addition to our original obedience training and behavioral modification services, we now offer specialized Therapy Dog, Service Dog, and Personal Protection Training programs as well. As the needs and demands of our clients change, we continue to add new, innovative services and approaches.

Make a Difference in Your Community With A Dog Training Franchise

As a Trainer with Dog Training Elite, you'll be interacting with dogs and dog owners all over your community! This puts you in a unique position of being able to act as an advocate for pet-related causes, as well as to educate fellow dog lovers in your area about important issues pertaining to their furry friends. Imagine using your local presence as a Dog Training Elite Franchise Owner to help raise awareness about health issues common to dogs, or partnering with a local animal shelter to sponsor a fundraiser or Adopt-a-Pet event. When you are starting a dog training business with Dog Training Elite, you have the power to change the lives of dogs in your neighborhood!

Home-Based Training Sessions

Dog Training Elite is a home-based business, which means that our Dog Training Franchise Owners/Trainers conduct sessions in the comfort of clients’ homes! We find that dogs and their owners are more likely to achieve successful results when they learn our exclusive training method in a familiar setting. Additionally, our clients are more likely to correctly and consistently utilize our techniques outside of training sessions when they have been effectively modeled in their homes.

Our clients love the convenience of having the trainer come to them, rather than having to find time to bring their dog to a dedicated dog training facility. Additionally, Dog Training Franchise Owners love the low overhead costs associated with not having to worry about construction, real estate, or additional build-out fees that come with other pet care franchises.
