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 Cleveland 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

Dog Training Elite in Cleveland has been approved to reopen and resume offering our in-home training and group classes in Cleveland. 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 Cleveland.

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.

We have never done professional training with our dog and we were skeptical about doing it. However, with having a young family we decided to just try it out and see what happens. We are so happy and thankful for our results with Dog Training Elite! Josh was super professional and understanding with the issues we were having with our furbaby and what the best course of action was to help our family be successful with carrying out a plan to assist with these issues. Some problems we had were him charging the front door when company was coming over, him trying to escape when the door was opened, but we also wanted him to just learn more obedience. It was amazing to see how fast our dog learned new tasks and became proficient at them! He is like a new dog and now we know he understands what we ask of him and we can trust him to do it. I would highly recommend Josh and Dog Training Elite to anyone! Their knowledge and dedication helped our family and dog become way closer and have a better bond.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Josh at Dog Training Elite. We adopted Nala, the sweetest Yellow Lab from the shelter and had been working on training her for almost a year - she is smart but stubborn. She was leash aggressive outside, dragged us around with zero regard to our commands, and resource guarded around other dogs. We were scared what she might do around other dogs and were past the point of knowing what to do, until we got in contact with Josh. Due to Nala’s unknown background of what her life was like before the shelter, I was worried her behavior was just how she was - but Josh showed us this was not the case. Nala did a lessons with Josh and came back to us completely transformed into a well behaved dog. Josh truly listened to our concerns and worries, took the time to explore those with Nala, and educated us on how we can provide her structure and confidence. Not only is Josh extremely knowledgeable, you can tell how much he loves and cares for each dog he’s training - and Nala seemed to love him just as much. Additionally, after the training he made it very clear that he was available for any follow up questions or concerns at any time. I am no longer embarrassed to go out in public with Nala, or dragged down a flight of stairs due to lack of leash control. If you are in need or training for your dog, I highly recommend Dog Training Elite.

Getting my dog trained with Dog Training Elite (Josh) was by far the best decision I have made for my dog. She is a completely transformed dog for the better. Josh was excellent throughout our entire training process. He is so diligent and detailed in his training methods, adaptable to the personality and needs of you and your dog and made every single aspect of the training experience digestible for me. He uses helpful analogies so you understand the tactics, works at a pace appropriate for you and your dog and is so knowledgeable. I cannot express in words how grateful I am for the work he has done with my dog and for the training he has given ME to be able to consistently and very easily continue to work with my dog forever. He helped her learn everything from how to properly walk on a leash right next to me to having excellent recall off leash even in high traffic areas. We worked with her throughout the week as well as we were instructed and that plus the group trainings made all the difference. Josh’s work is incredible and I am recommending Dog Training Elite to literally every person I know with a dog!!
