KEYSTONE CANINE TRAINING CLUB (KCTC)

  

Keystone Canine Training Club offers dog and puppy training in the Pittsburgh, PA area.  We are a non-profit organization mainly devoted to providing basic obedience training to dogs and their owners, to make their pets well-behaved family members and welcome members of the community.  We offer Puppy Kindergarten, Puppy Family Manners, and Family Manners Obedience classes at Basic and more advanced levels.  We also offer classes in Agility, Rally, Scent Work, and Tricks.  We have preparation classes for Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and CGC Advanced (CGCA) testing, and for Therapy Dogs International (TDI) testing.  We have certified Puppy STAR, CGC, CGCA and TDI evaluators. In addition, we have an extensive Community Outreach program, and give frequent demonstrations (including dance routines and “doggie weddings”) at senior citizen homes, day care centers, community events, and nursing homes.  Our events and instructors have been featured in local newspapers, cable television, and even the Wall Street Journal.  One of our instructors and her dog appeared with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra!  Our classes are open to the public.  All of our instructors and officers are strictly volunteers, who freely donate their time and energy to benefit the community.  See the Testimonials page for some comments on our classes.  Click on the Flyer to learn more about KCTC and what it has to offer.  Our location is 5167 Brownsville Road in Baldwin Borough, in the south suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA.  Our mailing address is PO Box 921, Bethel Park, PA 15102-0921.
