If sometimes you reinforce her behavior by allowing her to play with the big dogs, then you are going to continue to have problems. Class time is work-time. "Eh! We're working!" Be consistent and do not allow interactions with any-sized dog at class. And, if you are taking her other places where she can go crazy with other dogs, you might want to reconsider that, as it is negatively affecting her ability to contain herself in class and learn what she needs to learn.
