Meet Elaina

Elaina is the owner and founder of Long Island Puppy Training Prep School, which offers one on one personalized dog training to fellow Long Islanders. After working in marketing and advertising for 20 plus years and in search of a better quality of life; I decided to go where my passion is dogs and dog training.

Being a dog trainer allows me to work with people and their canine companions; arming humans like yourself with the skills to be a calm and confident leader and dog owner, while through the art of dog training you and your dog develop an incredible relationship.

A lifelong Massapequa resident, outside of dog training you'll find me with my dogs Teaka and Tasha traveling, hiking, learning new skills or just spending quality time with them. I look forward to working with you and your beloved dog.

I'm a firm believer of in-home training for the following reasons:

  • One on one training allows us to address you and your unique needs and answer all of your questions and concerns.

  • Ideally, your home has a quiet, low distraction environment so your dog can learn quickly.

  • We make sure your home is set up properly, setting you and your pup up for success.

Life Lessons

  • Walking on a loose leash

  • House manners for everyday life

  • Housebreaking & crate training support

  • Accepting touch, grooming & handling

  • Bite prevention

  • The best training approaches for every age and stage

  • Common behaviors addressed (mouthing, nipping, chewing & jumping)

Start building a stronger bond and better communication with your pup.
