MONDAY NIGHT SCHEDULE CHANGES: The Puppy Family Manners class will start at 7:00, and the Family Manners II class will start at 8:00.
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 also offer classes in more advanced Obedience, Agility, Rally, and Canine Good Citizen (CGC)/Therapy Dogs International (TDI). We have certified CGC 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 have been featured in local newspapers, cable television, and the Wall Street Journal! 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.
