sahil did a home visit for us and our 4.5 mo german shepherd cross to address a few behavioural issues and more so, to... train my partner and I to become the best pack leaders we can be! After just a few short weeks we have noticed an immense difference in our pup. We can’t thank sahil enough for his help. We have raved about him to our friends and family and would recommend elite canine training to anyone, but especially for first time puppy parents!read more

I have just finished my second four week puppy class with Sahil. Sahil is a brilliant trainer of dogs and people. He... communicates well and adapts his training methods to suit the various puppies. It is amazing how quickly the puppies learn. The handlers aren’t too bad either! Thank you Sahil, you have started me on the next exciting adventure with Hillie.read more

Sahil is incredible! Our little rescue dog had a few behavioural issues and we were out of our depth in helping him. He... was hyperactive and non engaging and we had no control of him. In one visit our dogs learnt so much, we’ve now got some practicing to do to cement our new habits but I’m so relieved to have the skills to do this correctly. Our home feels much calmer already , I highly recommend Sahil 🙌🏻⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read more

Thank you so much Sahil for working with us to improve the behaviour of our pups Sasha and Wally! Sahil did a private... session at home with us, and corrected all of their bad behaviour patterns in one single session! we were truly blown away. Not only did Sahil work with our pups but he really educated and trained us as owners to understand our pups more. We are super impressed with how well they responded to the training methods and are now finding it so much easier to control our big crazy fur babies. Could not recommend enough!Thanks again 🙂read more

Thank you so much Sahil for working with Montanna and Quincy. She has loved coming through puppy school classes and... heading into novice class. The private lesson on correct lead walking was so beneficial and benefits shown straight away . You have taught Montanna the fundamentals for good dog training and correct behaviour. Now she has the tools and guidance she needs to keep Quincy’s training progressing . We highly recommend Sahil at Elite Canines Training and his professional expertise and approach at all classes .read more

Sahil is great - patient and encouraging - and is good with the dogs too 😂. In all seriousness though, he's very... knowledgeable and passionate and we get plenty of 1:1 training even in the group sessions! Highly recommend Elite Canines Training! Come out and check out our classes 👍read more

I cannot recommend Elite Canines Training highly enough. It should be called Elite Human Training because we get just... as much out of it as our fur babies. Thanks Sahil, the lessons have been brilliant, fun and really valuable. I see the changes in Bert after each session and we are looking forward to doing the next intermediate classes. For anyone who is considering doing these classes, make the leap and book in with Sahil, you will not regret it.read more

The change in our dogs after 3 classes is absolutely astounding. The way Sahil teaches and explains the behavioural... concepts behind the training makes it all so clear and easy to understand. He is positive and patient and we thoroughly enjoy every class.read more

I highly recommend Elite Canines Training, Sahil is fantastic, and both my dog and I, have learnt so much in just 4... weeks. I hadn’t ever taken a dog to obedience school before, and wasn’t sure of where to go, but Sahil has been great! From my initial message inquiring about what he does, to the weekly sessions, he’s been fantastic, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and I can see how much my dog has progressed too!So if you’re looking for somewhere to take your dog for obedience training, you can’t look past Elite Canines Training �Thanks Sahilread more
