What They Say About Us
"I've taken previous pets to classes at PetSmart and other such schools, and I've read some of the dog training books as well. None of them stack up to the hands-on training Melinda gives at Elite Pet Training to both me and my puppy. She has a sophisticated curriculum that builds on itself, and classes compliment and reinforce themselves as you progress. The Day Academy is excellent and also integrates with the rest of the curriculum. This is for anyone who wants a better behaved, more controllable, and happier dog in the family. I have been very pleased with the results so far."
-Brian M. & Jack (Australian Shepherd)
