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 Lexington 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 Central Kentucky has been approved to reopen and resume offering our in-home training and group classes in Lexington. 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 Lexington.

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.

This is one of those instances where I wish Google had 10 stars and not just 5 because I would give D.T.E. 10 stars. Tom and Diane are amazing at what they do and are so passionate about dog training. They have given us our life back. My fiancé and I were at a point where we had no idea how we were going to move forward in life with our Dog acting the way he was. He was so reactive to everyone except us. We couldn't have company over. We couldn't go places for extended periods of time, and honestly we didn't know when or if we would be able to have children. I know that there are dogs that no matter how much you try, they just cant be trained. We weren't going to give up on our boy though. We could see his true self when we were at home with him and we wanted other people to see that side of him. My fiancé looked into basically every dog training place in Kentucky and finally found Dog Training Elite. We've spent the last 10 weeks working with Tom & Diane, doing all our assigned homework, managing our expectations with our dog, and getting out of our comfort zone. The results speak for themselves. The most common thing we hear is "He's like a whole new dog!" and we couldn't agree more. There aren't words to describe our appreciation we have for these guys. They're definitely getting invited to the wedding! LOL If you're looking for great training with great trainers in a great environment, this is your place! #TheProofIsInThePuppy.

For some reason my first post has not shown up and it is important that I leave this review. I have an 8 yr old American Pit Bull, Molly. She is very good girl and I have had no problems with her until we moved to Louisville and to a home with 2 other dogs. She is having trouble “getting acquainted” so after searching for just the right trainer I found Dog Training Elite. We began training 3 weeks ago and I am astounded at the difference in Molly’s level of obedience. Tom customizes the training method to the dog’s personality. That has meant success for Molly. Tom and Diane are incredibly patient and knowledgable about training with many years of experience and it shows. I am particularly pleased with Tom’s level of patience and kindness in training and Molly has already fallen in love with him. I am very excited to attend the classes with other dogs and I know Molly will love it too, Certainly the right choice of trainers for us was Dog Training Elite.

Needed help with my 10 month old husky, found an add for dog training elite and called the number, spoke to Tom and got started right away! Was so easy and we have been working for 4 weeks now and I have seen amazing improvement in the behavior of my husky already! From easy walks to not worrying about him bolting out the door any more. He stays right by my side always and listens to his commands. This program has made it so much easier! Can’t imagine how much he will improve by the end of the program.

DTE really made a great difference in our pups behavior! He is very high energy and would not listen to a thing we said until after the DTE gang stepped in to help. I would highly recommend them. Rocco loves the group classes as well.

We have been through a few different training methods in the past with our stubborn Golden Retriever but still struggled with some aggression and other tough behaviors. We are only 3 weeks into our training and are incredibly happy with the results! Creed is becoming more confident and relaxed and also really enjoys our training sessions. We are thankful for Tom and all he is teaching us to be a well adjusted family!

Truly impressed with Dog Training Elite! Tom was quick to respond to my inquiry and the in-home assessment with our two-month old puppy happened later that week! We are first time dog owners and Tom was patient with both us and our pup and super instructive. Looking forward to all we can accomplish with Dog Training Elite!

I highly recommend working with them. I have tried every training method to help my dog with his anxiety. They came in and on the first day we could already see positive results. Nothing felt better watching my dog gain his confidence back and work towards helping his anxiety. They communicated effectively on what we as owners have to do, and the training methods used. Quick easy responses, on time, and very professional.

Dog training elite of Central Kentucky is very reliable and trustworthy! I had the pleasure of meeting the owners, and I can say firsthand they work to ensure that their clients, both furry and human, are well cared for throughout the entire training process. I would absolutely recommend using them if you are looking for a hardworking and dedicated team to assist with your dogs!

I loved working with Dog Training Elite of Central Ky!!! Couldn’t recommend them enough. The owners are very personable and I couldn’t believe the amazing results with my dog! He was pulled from the litter very early and he has severe anxiety and DTE helped us raise his confidence with their structured training!
