I had started puppy school at another shool and was disappointed with what was getting achieved, then I spoke Sahil... about doing puppy school in his program and assured me there is structure and active learning in his courses. I was blown away even just after the first lesson. He is very experienced and evidently knowledgeable and covered so many areas of training. It was enjoyable and engaging and there wasn't much standing around as we were always learning or practising something. I will be continuing training my dog with Sahil. I cannot pick a fault, I highly recommend!!!!!read more

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

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

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
