My beautiful girl Flossy and I are nearing the completion of our Puppy School classes with Sahil. I wanted to give Flossy the best possible start in life and Sahil's Puppy School has been the key to learning the skills which are essential in helping Flossy develop into a confident, trusting, friendly and well behaved dog at home and in social and environmental settings. Sahil has a natural affinity with puppies and connects with all temperaments, shapes and sizes. He is consistent, caring and compassionate.Sahil is also very patient and observant and in my eyes (and Flossy's eyes too) a brilliant dog trainer. We can't thank Sahil enough for setting us on the right path as we continue to practise the skills he has taught us. I highly recommend Elite Dog Training's Sahil Verma to all loving and responsible puppy owners in the Greater Bendigo area and beyond.

Sahil is a wonderful dog trainer and we have used him for both our dogs. We attend his group classes each week and are learning so much. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone who is patient, caring, understanding, super experienced, and able to fix any dog behavioural issues super quickly. We love attending Elite! πŸ™‚

Sahil is excellent all round. Friendly, professional and amazing with our dog (and so patient with us asking non stop questions!).We were a bit lost with our new Lab a couple of years ago and got Sahil in for a couple of home visits, the difference was immediate each time. He gave us the techniques to deal with issues and ensure we all are happy. Trained bad behaviours out of us and her in one go. We're about to add another Lab and are going to puppy school again it was that invaluable.I recommend him highly and have been telling everyone who asks about dog trainers to go to Sahil.

We have completed the basic puppy training and it has been a terrific learning experience for the both of us (dog and 'daddy'). This training provided a great foundation, with loads of tips and an opportunity to socialise with other dogs, and now we're both excited to continue our training with Sahil.Totally recommend!! πŸ™‚
