Elite Professional Dog Training did a fantastic job with training my dog ginger in a 2 week boot camp. She went from a difficult to control on a walk, to now my 9 year old daughter can walk her safely. We have boarded there before and the staff is always friendly and knowledgeable.

Laurent and his team at Elite are the BEST!!! Over the past 3 years, I have taken my 2 giant schnauzers to train with Laurent. With both dogs being 100+ lbs, it was critical that they (and us as the parents) were well trained and could handle and be comfortable in any situation/environment.In 2021, I took Ellie when she was 10 months old for the Doggy Boot Camp. She trained (and stayed) at the facility for 6 weeks, and came home a different dog, with manners and understanding of what was expected of her. The home training provided at the end of the program was critical to our success of following thru with training at home. She continues to go to Doggy Day Care a few times a week and is a happy well-rounded girl.In November 2023, we adopted 1.5 year old Bentley (who had some previous training), but appeared aggressive towards individuals upon first meeting. I RAN to Elite for a consult, and ultimately enrolled in the 4-week Train and Play program. Bentley goes everyday (M - F) for training and socialization with other pups. He is such a smart boy, and really wants to please with whatever you ask him to do. The training isn't over yet, but the results and feedback that we get from Elite each week are phenomenal!I can't recommend the Elite program(s) enough! They are experts at what they do, really dig in to understand your fur baby (and you as their human), and then BAM....make the magic happen!

Absolutely loved this company. I ran into a branch of theirs at a wedding expo in a completely different city of where I lived. I put my info in and told them what I needed because I was dealing with a dog that had food aggression, and the results have been tremendous. They are patient, real with you and understanding of your needs and the dogs. You definitely have to put forth your work of homework with your dog, but they are great. They work with you if you are on a budget and pretty open to your busy schedule. Highly recommend them!

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!

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!

I've NEVER left a review for anything anywhere...but this is long overdue:If you want your dog to be physically, mentally, and emotionally stimulated - AND all around taken care of in the best way - take your dog to Elite Professional Dog Training in Sanford! Laurent (the head trainer there) and his team do a remarkable job handling all types of dogs as well as listen to your requests/your dog's needs. I have a 110lb male german shepherd who has boarded there for weeks at a time over the last 4 years: when he was one year old AND IN-TACT, as well as over the last 3 years since he's been neutered. Background: my dog is a classic loud/hyper (but very lovey) german shepherd that requires the right environment to thrive - probably because he grew up at home during COVID and missed that main socialization period around 6months - otherwise he can be leash/dog (and occasionally people) aggressive. When I found out that he not only had ZERO issues with people or dogs there, AND walked ON LEASH WITH OTHER DOGS, I knew I'd never board him or take him to daycare anywhere else **and the pricing is SO reasonable, side note, I am currently in veterinary school and have very little money, but the money I do have goes to my animals of course** I am truly one of the most high maintenance / anxious people about my dog's wellbeing because he is my life (as he should be), but Laurent and his team at Elite Professional Dog Training can handle anything you bring to them, as long as you allow them your TRUST AND RESPECT. They know their stuff. Example: I am exceptionally cautious about GDV (bloat) when it comes to my dog... So, when I board my dog, that is my top concern (aside from enough exercise and human contact/love). The team at Elite Professional Dog Training not only reassured me they manage common issues like bloat in pre-disposed breeds like GSD's, but also validated my concern for my dog, which naturally made me feel very at ease because I truly believe that the ENTIRE staff will take care of my dog as if it were their own. Would rate 1400/1400 stars if I could :)

Staff at Elite Pro are amazing, and our dog loves doggy daycare. We also enjoy the continued training sessions we are able to attend after the Play and Train program we utilized.

Everyone at Elite Professional Dog Training is wonderful and very knowledgeable. In only a week I was able to start walking my dog, whereas, prior to beginning the training, we could not walk her as she would practically drag us behind her. After almost two weeks, the changes in her are very noticeable, she is less excitable and fearful. I would recommend Elite to anyone who needs training for their pup.

My dog and I both love this place. The entire staff is extremely professional, kind and accommodating. I have used their boarding and they were so sweet to my 6 month old puppy. I have also worked with Laurent for one on one training and he is an expert in dog behavior. We are currently doing training and I am so thankful for his help. I highly recommend Elite professional dog training and day camp

When I first called, I was greeted by Jay, who is such a sweetheart. I was looking for one on one outside of my home. Jay fit me in for my consult that day due to availability. Four days later, I did my first one on one training session with the owner, Laurant. He did an amazing job with my girl and I. I also let my boy and girl stay for day camp to play that Friday and Saturday. The staff did an amazing job with my pups, and this is now another play group as well for daycare. Thank you all very much for taking care of us! We appreciate your professionalism. Khloe and Boocoo!

Laurent, Mckenna and the entire team at Elite are great to work with. Our dog Sadie was very timid and they were very patient with her throughout her four weeks of training. She is a much better listener and we look forward to continuing to bring her to doggie day camp! Would highly recommend!

Chelsea was amazing with our English Cream GR! We did in home training. We worked on basic training, as well as specific issues I was having. Our dog is very energetic, and I was nervous about him being too excitable around our grand babies! We learned commands like sit, place, down etc… and now I am fully comfortable with him around the little ones. In fact, they just love each other and have so much fun playing together.DTE is very knowledgeable and professional! Highly recommend Dog Training Elite Orlando!

Staff at Elite Pro Dog Training are always so kind and understanding. I could tell my dog loves and trusts everyone in the team! I feel I could say that for most dogs I’ve seen come out of this facility. This will definitely be our main place for dog training, refresher, and boarding. Thank you for the great service!

I couldn't be happier with the training provided to my crazy puppy Hazel. The positive reinforment they give to the dogs when doing training makes such a difference. She is calmer, listens, and likes to do the work too. I can't believe the difference and she's in week 3 of training. She can't wait to go everyday and she gets so happy when she sees the trainers. Laurent's method really works. I look forward to keeping them as part of my family.
