I would recommend this place for your training needs. They have done wonders with our fur baby. If I have any questions they're right there to answer or show me how to correct the issues. Best of all I could tell by my babies reaction to them that he was very well taken care of. Thank you😊
Paul oversaw the training of our 1 year old Goldendoodle Penny, she struggled with barking, pulling when on leash, and overall anxiety. After 6 weeks of boot camp, we went from a dog with little to no manners to a well trained pup!My 10 & 9 year old children can easily take her on a walk and now... she respects whoever is holding the leash! I cannot say enough good things about Elite Pro, they were kind, communicative, and made sure everything was smooth from start to finish.A special thanks to Paul and the entire Elite Pro team for training our Penny-Pooch so well, Thank you!Kelvin, Kayla, Judah, Zoey, and Penny Hill 🐾read more
Upon picking my dog up after her stay, I was absolutely pleased with how Elite professional took care of her. You could tell she enjoyed her time there and she was well groomed. I will definitely be bringing her back!
I’m a first time dog owner so leaving my new pup in a doggy day care for the first time was a bit nerve wracking but I was so happy to hear how much fun my Pico had when I picked him back up! His groom was perfect (cavalier King Charles spaniel) and they even gave me some good advice to help with... his training after they worked with him. I will definitely be bringing my dog back 🐶read more
I was nervous letting my baby go for the 6 week boot camp but in the end it was well worth the time and money! This group of trainers and support were awesome. They trained us humans as well and boy did we learn a lot. We are still learning how to be the pack leader but it's finally starting to... pay off and we are very grateful! Thank you to everyone at Elite! Much appreciated.read more

We love this place for our dog! We do hate to be away from her but when we have to be, we know she is treated the best here. We love that she gets to play with other dogs while we are gone. She was trained by Laurant from a puppy and our neighbors still talk about how well behaved she is.

The staff is very responsible & are wonderful with my two dogs. They take great pride in providing excellent service.
We brought in our rescue Lab mix, Tanner, to Elite Professional to get evaluated due to his fear and aggression. They recommended the 6 week boot camp for environmental training. Tanner was afraid to go for walks. He would react when we would try to put the harness on him. He would go hide and his... legs would shake. Other trainers recommend meds along with training and that only made him tired without resolving the issue. Well, after Tanner came home he was a different dog. He absolutely loves his walks now to the point that he runs to the front door waiting for us to take him out. He doesn’t react to joggers , bikes and cars. He can walk past them with no problem. We even had a large loose dog approach us and I was able to keep Tanner under control. He is such a happy dog now. He has gained more confidence and he even bonded with a sweet dog at camp. He didn’t even know how to interact with other dogs before training. He has also learned his basic commands and it’s so nice to have him wait patiently at crosswalks for the cars to pass. I can’t thank Elite Professional enough for a job well done with Tanner. We look forward to the Wednesday classes that will help reinforce what he has learned and will train the owners, too. I also forgot to mention that Tanner is now meds free!read more
Laurent and his team was excellent. We brought in moose because of how reactive to everything he was. After his 6 week course moose came back a completely different dog. He’s so much more calm and listens to everything. We feel comfortable walking him on the leash now. Can’t express our gratitude... for this.read more
We are very pleased! Our 5 mo. German Shepard is coming along beautifully! She is now in the second phase and learning her down positions. I highly recommend this training facility. Paul is her trainer and he is very knowledgeable in his craft of training dogs. on time, responsible and dedicated.... Ty again!read more
Laurent and his entire team have been fantastic. We contacted him about our Belgian Malinois puppy and he has guided us and helped us with all of our needs. We did the 6 week puppy training and then the 2 week boot camp. I get compliments on how well behaved my dog is when we are out together. I... would highly recommend Elite Professional Dog Training.read more
Laurent and his team are the real deal. They are extremely comfortable assessing dogs and their owners’ needs. I’m most impressed that they will work with their charges out in real world scenarios vs. solely the safety of a controlled environment.
We had Kingston in a 2 week highly intensive program to learn boundaries and how to pay attention. He is now doing amazing and is traveling across the country as a new pack member with 3 other huskies. The trainers are all great and truly care about each dog.

We are only 2 weeks into our 6 week program for our rescue ,Hope, who was abused and has severe stranger fear/aggression. The difference is her in this short time is amazing. Laurent and his staff are working miracles!!! I highly recommend Elite Professional Dog Training!!!
We’re so thankful we were referred to Laurent at Elite Professional Dog Training. Gus made progress beyond our wildest dreams in such a short period of time!

We adopted a dog from a rescue that we were told had dog aggression. Turns out she was actually afraid of EVERYTHING: dogs, humans, random/stressful situations, even small children. If she could get away she would just run and hide... otherwise we would bark and growl and lunge which made her... miserable to walk and scary to take places. Her behavior was erratic and unpredictable. We went through 2 other trainers and nothing was working. Laurent was recommended to us and we enrolled her in his boot camp.. Within a day at the Kamp she was hanging out with new humans and other doggy Kampers without losing her mind. We just got her back a few days ago and she camp back a CHANGED dog!! She listens around the house and all of her bad habits are POOF gone!! And she is SO MUCH less stressed in general. She's still an anxious dog, just a fundamental part of her personality, BUT the bad behavior is 90% GONE. (It's 100% gone for Laurent but Penny is still getting used to being back home and our authority). Seriously, Laurent is a life changer and I would recommend him to anyone.read more
Professional and knowledgeable. I brought my 4 year old german shepherd and in one visit my dog was already improving with his walking. If I could give higher than five stars I would!
They are so professional and caring, after looking at several trainers for my moms GSD Diesel Laurent was the easy choice. So far we are extremely happy with them we can’t wait to get him back home with my elderly mom. Pedro Perez

Laurent is amazing! We are new to the Malinois breed and he, not only helped us with our handsome boy, he continues to educate us as well. He is always ready and willing to answer any question. He also provides boarding and Jäger is always excited to see him. Hands down the best experience!

If you are looking for a Dog Trainer, then Laurent should be your choice. He was able to train my pup Bragi, a very hyperactive Australian Shepherd which now is an example of obedience in my home and in my neighborhood. Bragi never lost his personality and is till the same lovable, curious, playful... pup he was before but, obedient. Laurent has a special gift with dogs and i can testify to this because i am extremely happy with the results. Laurent was recommended to me by a friend and i will recommend Laurent wherever, whenever i can. Laurent when above and beyond to help me, and i am forever grateful for all his help. Trust me, if you are having issues with your pet (dog) then contact Laurent you will not regret it!!!read more
As a first time dog owners, Laurent was so easy to learn from & give our new puppy the tools for great behavior. The entire family was welcome & encouraged to participate in every session. We saw immediate results & frequently get compliments on the exceptional behavior our fur baby demonstrates.
Brian K Justice
What an amazing job! Laurent took Ellie, so much younger than most trainers, and has performed miracles. My GSP is such a headstrong stubborn bread and Laurent was able to work with her & train her to an amazing state in just a few weeks! We continue with the puppy bootcamps and she excels each... week. I would definitely recommend him with any breed I ever get. Thank you!read more
Laurent can educate you and your dog in so many ways. He cares about his profession, customers and is always available to assist. He does not just train your dog, he trains the owner which is key. The best decision we made!
Laurent came by today because I was truly at my wits end with my 6 month old puppy. I really did not know what to do with his constant barking, jumping all over, biting and aggressive behavior. In one session I see a big change! I feel peace in my home again. I am SOOO grateful!!! Thank you so... much!!!!! I highly recommend Elite Professional Dog Training!!!read more
Laurant is a truly gifted dog trainer! I've heard and read about people who are truly gifted with dogs, and was skeptical until I met Laurant. Our puppy training has been so easy thanks to Laurant, though I do get a little jealous when I see how happy our girl is to see him. I don't think 5... stars are enough.read more

I love this place!! It doesn't matter what service I have had they are top notch. My fur baby loves going here for the doggy daycare, and I love the fact that they send you a report card each day. I ❤️ seeing that smiley face, that's how I know my baby is having fun. So if you need a place for your fur babies to go I would highly recommend this place.

I could not recommend Laurent and his team at Elite Professional Dog Training more!!!! They seemed to perform an absolute miracle with our rescued bully breed that started showing signs of fearful aggression, especially towards men, and we can now take our dog into public places with men who are strangers and while he is still rather timid we have had zero issues with him reacting to men who are stranger. I’ll be perfectly honest though, you get out what you put in to the training with your dog but Laurent and his entire team will set you up for success if you listen and work at it. We went from a fearful, anxious dog that didn’t know how to entertain himself at home to a dog that is much more confident as well as owners who are more confident as well. It wasn’t easy to be away from our boy for five weeks but the five weeks and cost of training camp is were well worth it. I honestly wish we lived closer to campus so we could continue with weekly training sessions. I HIGHLY recommend seeking out this team if you have a reactive dog in any way because they will assist you in helping your dog become the best dog they can be.

Laurent and his team were exceptional. Our 6 month old puppy Isla was not aggressive but very mischievous and always finding trouble. After 4 weeks of Train and Play instruction at Elite Professional Dog Training she follows commands, does not jump up on people and is calmly sleeping at my feet as I type this review. Laurent let us know at every step what to expect and how to reinforce his training at home.

Amazing experience with Elite Professional Dog Training. Laurent and his staff have been so helpful getting my 10mo Dobie in check. He still has a few days of training left, but has shown so much growth each week that he's been there. When someone says the training is worth every penny, they're not kidding. My dog knows when we're on the way to "school" and is always excited when we get there :)

Elite Pro Dog Training is the best of the best! Our family dog spent several weeks working with Laurent and his team of Trainers. Our dog had developed aggressive behaviors that needed to be addressed immediately. The trainers were very patient and well skilled! They were able to help our dog and most importantly our family! Thank you Elite Pro Dog Training!

I Recommend Laurent Gabriel-Elite Professional Dog Training 100%! Laurent "fine tuned" my GS-SD Sheba, testing her on all of her skills including her SAR,maintaining perfect stay behavior in busy situations filled with people ,food,as well as dogs. My favorite video's of Laurent & Sheba's bootcamp days are"Sheba finds Laurent in the woods,"Sheba can you hear me","Sheba & Brinkley stay(Brinkley decided to break his stay& "Sheba grabbed Brinkley's leash"&Brinkley stays put), Sheba & Brinkley st the flea market maintaining perfect stay while ignoring all of the food going back & forth by them,Sheba gaining back load-up confidence after slipping with rainy'wet feet while getting into my truck at about 8months old(97 pound dog needed me to clasp my hands together to give her a boost,1 day with Laurent & Sheba was back to "loading-up confidently on her own")! Sheba and I have known &trained with Laurent for 13&1/2 years;and Sheba will be 14years old in less than two months! Laurent Gabriel is the kindest,dedicated, ,compassionate & best dog trainer I've met in over 1/2 century! Laurent is the only personthat Sheba has ever gotten into a car with "withoutme";Sheba loves & trusts Laurent!

I met the owner and what a wonderful guy! I can tell he honestly cares about the dogs and gave me a couple tips on how to deal with my dogs bad behaviors. My dogs walk me! I highly recommend elite professional dog training services

This team is the real deal! Laurent and Paul spent an hour with us to garner a thorough understanding of our needs. They were spot on in ascertaining our strengths and offered specific strategies to thrive. Also, they create "field trips" where our pup and I encounter real scenarios vs. solely practicing in a sterile "classroom." Shout out to their suggestion of a bike tow leash! Now, I'm able to really give Daphne the exercise she needs.

I came here for grooming, and they did an excellent job with my cockapoo. Very sweet and polite employees. They treated him like he was one of their own!

Laurent is great! We were actually referred to Laurent from another dog trainer. We are impressed with the training results for our sweet rescue dog, Lucy. Lucy came to us with fearful behaviours, issue walking on a leash, as well as biting when close to her toys. After 3 weeks with Laurent and his team she is doing great! she now has a great foundation for us to build upon. He genuinely cares and excellent follow through with answering questions and making sure that she stays on track. Hands down would refer Laurent to others!

Definitely the best place for your dogs to undergo training. Laurent has a highly- skilled and well-trained staff, all are also very friendly and really know what they are doing. The price point is totally worth it. Accommodation is excellent as well. It is good to know that they can handle aggressive dogs, I was very happy after the training sessions my dog has had. She had a blast she looks forward to training days at the center . To make it even better the offer so many other services. A true one stop shop for your pets training and boarding services Thank you guys very much.

Laurent was awesome! I was at my wits end with my hyperactive 11 month old Lab and seriously considering whether I had made a big mistake by adopting him. The dog responded almost immediately to Laurent's techniques and showed me exactly what to do and how to do it, and WHY I was doing it. It all made perfect sense and is working! Thank you Laurent! I have hope now that with the proper training and consistency, I'll have a great dog for years to come!
