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 Philadelphia 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!

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

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 worked with Toni for over a month with our dog Rosie who has severe anxiety outside with walks and people, and was unable to control herself around a new baby in our family. Toni did an amazing job training Rosie and teaching us the skills we needed to continue that training. Rosie went from not being able to sit still when the baby was around to staying calm in place, and still being able to be near him. It has been an unbelievable change! Rosie has been doing much better and walks and is getting more comfortable being outside every day. It's like we have a new dog!!! Toni was such an amazing help to us, extremely friendly, and knows what she is doing. Couldn't have asked for a better trainer! Seriously recommend!

We had an amazing experience with our trainer, Toni! She was so good with our dogs and great at explaining what we needed to do to be successful. Our dog, shadow, it’s a completely different dog after five weeks. We are now attending group dog training where we are continuing to see improvements in his behavior. Best investment we’ve ever made!

Been working with Toni from Dog Training Elite for over 8 weeks now in the Service Dog program. I can say with 100% certainty that I’m beyond grateful she was the one that knocked on my door for my dog Rozays Service Dog evaluation. She has been nothing short of amazing and has turned my dog into a completely different animal. He’s reached heights and done things I never thought were possible for him. This is all thanks to Toni. She is so good with my dog that he takes almost immediately to her new commands and gets excited on Mondays when he sees her for his training sessions. I don’t think I would ever let anybody else, but Toni train my dog. She’s very understanding of mine and my dogs needs. She definitely knows how to train dogs and get them to listen to her all while still maintaining a safe, comfortable and fun environment for my dog. If there is anyone deserving of a nice raise it’s Toni. She works with minimal stuff and still has an excellent outcome. Poor girl uses her own car to travel and train pups in a bunch of different locations. The company definitely needs to give her a car or a van or something to travel in! Treat that girl right because she does excellent work!! There is no elite in dog training without Toni! I almost want to call the company and complain to give that poor girl a car to use! Here’s a picture of my boy doing some place training with Toni at the mall.

We recently had our five year old dog go missing for 44 days. About 30 days in, we decided to foster a new 6 month old puppy. She arrived super hyper, overly excitable, not listening at all and mostly out of control with joy from being away from the Rescue. She was really hard to manage. In the meantime, our old dog was returned and now we found ourselves the owners, of two similar dogs.. We knew we had to get a Trainer asap. Our neighbor suggested, Taylor at Dog Training Elite based on witnessing him interact with his dog Skye at a demonstration in Kennett Square, PA. So we went for it! After 5 weeks, we couldn’t be happier and neither could our puppy, Sadie. Somehow she’s listening, responding to commands, walking on leash really well and as a result, an overall joy to be around. In addition, Taylor spent time giving us a concrete strategy on how to have to the two dogs interact and get know each other. (which will take time) Taylor is an excellent and experienced trainer with a calm demeanor that both our dogs respond very favorably towards. As Dog owners, we now have more confidence and a solid understanding of what it means to be a successful dog owners. Thanks Taylor!

Taylor was great to work with, and he accomplished in 5 weeks what we thought was impossible! He was prompt, professional, and great with us and our puppy. We have a 10 month-old rascally Yorkie, so it was no small undertaking. He said we’d see results after week 1, and he was not exaggerating. We still have a way to go, but we already have the foundation to have a well-behaved puppy! I would recommend this to any pet owner, no matter how obstinate the dog!

Working with Toni has been an awesome experience! We reached out after noticing a progressive issue with leash reactivity/play aggression in our Irish Doodle as he matured. Toni was able to not only train our dog, Charlie but also taught us humans how to help him be successful. We are super happy with the progress he has made in such a short time and are super excited to see where these new tools take him!

Working with Ashley was great. She's a very knowledgeable trainer and works great with Akitas. I have two Akitas that are very hard headed, she took her time with them and was very patient.

Working with Toni has been amazing! After adopting an older dog with some aggression issues, I reached out for help making my German Shepherd feel comfortable in her new home as well as get her trained in basic commands. Toni came to our home on a flexible schedule that worked for us and has sorted out all our concerns. She’s helped build an amazing bond between me and my dog! Toni is gentle and consistent in her approach, making it easy to trust her through the tougher parts of training, like my dogs aggression towards other dogs and certain people. Dog Training Elite uses E-collars and it has made huge strides in just a couple months. I was hesitant at first but Toni taught me how to use it properly and how a low stimulus could catch the attention of my reactive dog without pain. My pup is starting to make new doggy friends because of this training and I can’t wait to see her living her best life by the end of the sessions! We’re forever grateful!

Our dog, Andy, was reactive to dogs he didn’t know plus had a few other bad habits too. Betsy worked with him as well as us and while it is hard for us to believe Andy can now walk past other dogs quietly when on walks. His other bad habits disappeared once he believed we were in charge and could take care of whatever was going on in his world. Cannot recommend Betsy or this training enough……Andy is a new dog and we’re newly appreciative everyday Thanks Betsy….hope everyone has a chance to experience what we have

Taylor is a patient, kind, and knowledgeable trainer. He is easy to work with, which made the experience even better. We saw a difference in our dog within a short time period and know she'll continue to make progress in his group classes. We highly recommend him!

Betsy and dog training elite Philadelphia are the best trainers around. I sent my 3 year old puppy, Artemis, to a board and train facility for several weeks. She understood the commands but was far from perfect. We called Betsy to help us tune up Artemis but through that process, we became totally bought in and elected to make her a therapy dog, with the goal of taking her to CHOP to help young children deal with in tough situations. I wholeheartedly recommend Betsy and dog training elite of greater Philadelphia- worth every penny!!!

We reached out to Elite Dog training and got Betsy as our trainer for our Golden Retriever Shiloh. Shiloh is going to be a service dog for our son. Our son has a seizure condition along with a lot of cognitive delays. From the very first phone call we have experienced nothing but EXTREME EXCELLENCE from this group! They have truly gone above and beyond for our family!! I would HIGHLY recommend this company! They love your dog and provide excellent training! Can not say enough good things about them! They truly care and are very professional! If you are looking for service dog training or just want a better relationship with your dog and want a well trained dog they are your people!!!

Taylor has been amazing with our dog Parker. Finding someone as patient and gentle with great advice with our 85lbs German Shepherd/Husky mix was not easy. My husband and I started our journey not knowing what to do with our rambunctious pup but after working with Taylor, we see a great and positive future for us all. Highly recommend!
