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 Springfield 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!

COVID-19 Reopening Guidelines

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

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 were at the end of our rope with our dog and were extremely frustrated with his misbehavior. Dog Training Elite changed our life and our relationship with our dog. Thank you for helping us save our dog!!!

Already seeing so much improvement in my dogs behavior just after two lessons! Never say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! Will definitely be leaving another review when we finish up but so far I have been very impressed with how professional the trainers have been and their knowledge on my dogs behavior.

DTE is amazing! Though skeptical at first, I'm now convinced that they are the best and have an awesome dog to show for it! The team is great and I highly recommend!!!

DTE has done wonders for my dog. She would bark constantly, listen to commands like sit, down and stay when she felt like it. Now her barking is under control, she listens to commands when I tell her to and we are learning heel which I never thought she would be able to do! I have taken her to training classes and other instructors before and watch videos on training but nothing has helped or made a difference like DTE!!!! I would and will HIGHLY recommend them!!!!

Our dogs weren’t horrible but just felt tired of being frustrated by their behavior and not feeling like we could enjoy them as much as we wanted. We found these trainers at a community event and I’m so glad we did. They have come into our home and helped us learn about how to connect and direct our dog to listen to us. They have taught us how to create structure in our home to help our pup be successful all while being amazing humans to be around. Nerissa is an absolute joy and we look forward to our time together each of week. It’s worth every penny!

I have been so incredibly blown away with the change in my border collie, Sadie. We are on lesson 4…Four lessons!!! And my sweet girl is like a brand new pup. Sadie struggles with high anxiety and the change and confidence that she has gained in just four weeks is incredible! I couldn’t even take her for a walk without her trying to attack other dogs and bark like crazy at people passing by. She was charging the front door and barking uncontrollably any time someone rang the bell. Now she walks calmly at my side and quietly greets guest with beautiful manners. Kristy Anderson is great to work with, she is patient and understanding and clearly loves my Sadie! Im so happy with my purchase of these lessons.

Our 3 yr old labradoodle, Buck, has never been so calm! After training with Kristi, Nerissa, and Jeremy, he is under voice control and has been our dream dog! SUCH an amazing team who truly cares about the whole family. It's not just about the dog for them. Their caring attitude and professionalism is nothing short of amazing. As a dog owner who was apprehensive about continuing the training, they encouraged us and built OUR confidence. We LOVE DogTrainingElite- Springfield.
