About The Dog Training Elite Franchise

When John Mestas got tired of being just another employee at a dog training company, he opened his first business, Arrow Kennels, in 1976. In 1980, he took on the mantle as a professional training director at his business, offering private training services. By 1995, John started offering his dog training services to the public under the Dog Training Elite business name.

Dog Training Elite offers seven standard and advanced training services to dog owners which include service dog training, therapy animal training, and anxiety and aggression training. Additionally, the franchise has training services for service dogs owned by veterans or retired military personnel. Dog Training Elite began franchising in 2015 and now has over 50 franchises located throughout the United States.
