Group Dog Training Class Schedule

Please Note: Group Classes are for Dog Training Elite Clients Only

Dog Training Elite offers small dog training classes after obedience training is completed and only once a dog is fully immunized. Dog obedience classes in Chicago are held on a consistent basis and are included in most packages. Our dog obedience training classes are designed to place yourself and your dog in public places (surrounded by other dogs, people, smells, and sounds), so that you can train your dog to obey you... regardless of the many distractions screaming for their attention!

Our group class schedule is coming very soon...

...please check back often!

COVID-19 Reopening Guidelines

{fran_location_name} has been approved to reopen and resume offering our in-home training and group classes in Chicago. We have reorganized our training programs to fit social distancing and heightened sanitation measures. In order to keep you and our training staff safe and healthy, we ask for your assistance on the following protocols.

In-Home & Office Guidelines

  • If you or anyone in your household becomes sick, please inform us immediately. We can cancel and reschedule training sessions at no extra cost.
  • Please follow general hygiene guidelines before and after your session, including hand washing.
  • Thoroughly clean and disinfect all training tools before and after the session.
  • If possible, most of the training session will take place outside - in your backyard or at a nearby park.

Group Class Guidelines

  • We are limiting the size of group training sessions, so you must sign up online first.
  • Only one person is permitted per sign up (RSVP for the number of dog attendees only). Multiple dogs are ok, but if they need more handlers you must sign up for each person individually.
  • If you or anyone in your household becomes sick, you must reschedule.

We understand that you are excited about training your dog(s) and we want to provide you with services as quickly as possible, but we must maintain the health of our trainers in order to provide this service. Thank you for being flexible and proactive about preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Dog Training Elite offers professional group dog obedience training classes for all clients in Chicago.

Why Are Group Dog Training Classes Important?

  • Provide Socialization
  • Training Practice in Distracting Situations
  • Fun and Friendly Community Building
  • Small and Highly Personable
  • For all Breeds and Sizes
  • Included in Most Packages
  • Basic Obedience Training Required
  • Only for Fully Immunized Dogs

Classes are a mix of all dog breeds and sizes, and our classes provide necessary socialization skills and practice around high levels of distraction. We like to make our group classes exciting for both dogs and handlers, we have created fun training games and an environment that feels less like a class and more like a social outing. We are building a community and our dog training groups tend to feel like a family and less like a dog training group. Friends are made, bonds are formed, and both dogs and dog owners look forward to their once a week group training sessions.

Great Trainers! It was amazing to watch them take two dogs and give them confidence, reduce anxiety, and teach them world class obedience! Improving the quality of life with dogs and owners is priceless and these trainers deliver!

Tim and Katie are fantastic! Our dog would always bark and jump on our guests as they would enter our home. It was so stressful to have friends over. Now our dog is trained to sit quietly and allow our guests to enter! I would highly recommend them!

Wow! DTE Western Chicago! Give them a call! Don't wait! Katie and Tim will teach you skills that are invaluable! In only 5 weeks my once reactive dog is no longer growling, lunging, and showing teeth. Instead, he's much calmer and listening to my commands. It's life-changing!

Katie and Tim and fantastic people. They are community focused and truly care about delivering high quality results to improve your relationship with your furry friend! They are also compassionate about giving back to the community through service dog training with the Malinois Foundation. You can expect a high level of professionalism but also very personable. Highly recommend!

DTE’s trainer Laren L. is a true gift. She has helped me with my 20 month old 100 pound puppy to become a rock star. He can walk calmly next to me in the heel position on leash and off which was one of our main goals. He is responsive to my commands and has learned to look to me for direction. He was very ambitious in every way causing me to have many serious falls and broken bones I was seriously considering rehoming him for personal safety reasons. Karen literally saved me from the potential of more serious injuries. Then we found the answer. Karen has such a gift, the knowledge, patience and abilities to communicate effectively with me to teach me how to train my puppy. I now trust my puppy and have the confidence in myself to be a better dog mom so he can continue to be successful in all his accomplishments. The investment in this program is an investment/end result in a calm, obedient puppy. We are still a work in progress with Karen’s guidance and direction. Thank you Karen L. for literally saving both of us. we owe you so much. 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾
