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

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.

I highly recomment Tonya, Louis and Dog Training Elite Greater Tampa. It is obvious that they are not only very knowledgable, but passionate about what they do. Tonya is calm, patient and caring not just with dogs, but with children and people in general. She is super easy to work with.

I have known Tonya for a very long time. She has had a lifelong love of dogs. It was only natural that she would want to work with them. She is very good at what she does. I’m sure she will put her heart into helping you with the training of your dog. She knows your dog is a valued family member. Let her and Luis help make them more a obedient family member.

I’ve known Tonya for over 10 years as both a hard worker and a great friend. I also know her love of animals is just never-ending. I live 2 hours away by plane but am planning on bringing my rescue dog to her & Luis for training - for both my dog & myself!!

My wife and I picked up a rescue Dutch shepherd and got him right into the obedience training with DTE West Tampa. He has quickly picked up everything and loves doing it! Having owned 3 other Dutch shepherds growing up, the difference is night and day between Kai(our new pup) and our previous dogs which weren't trained by DTE. We will train all of our dogs through them in the future as well and couldn't recommend them enough!

My new puppy learned so many skills using this program, more rapidly than I ever dreamed. We can easily walk him off leash and he heels, regardless of rabbits and lizards and other dogs distracting him, and he also knows more "advanced" things like long distance recall. He's the first dog I've ever had and seriously I am impressed with how quickly DTE has trained him. Would definitely recommend this program!

Having known Tonya for more than 2 decades, there is no denying 2 things: Her dedication to the well being of animals, and her passion to succeed. Both Tonya & Luis are kind, caring and compassionate individuals to which I would entrust the care and training of my own animals with no hesitation.

Having known Tonya for 22 years, I have had experience observing her with many, many dogs. Not only her own, mine but others who had multiple dogs. I do believe that she will be a caring, responsible, and trustworthy person who would keep the well being of the pets in priority. Her love of dogs and their care has been of great comcern to Tonya as long as I have known her. Give Tonya and Luis your trust as I would.
