KEYSTONE CANINE TRAINING CLUB (KCTC)
Our next full session of classes will begin in January. See the CLASS SCHEDULE page for details.
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.

OPEN OBEDIENCE CLASS
Our Open Obedience class is normally held every-other Saturday at 9:00 am. Julie Agosti is the instructor, and she teaches the skills need for AKC Open Obedience. It is intended for handlers ready to move on the AKC Open from AKC Novice, although a Novice title is not a prerequisite to attend this class. It is a drop-in class, and the fee is $10. The next classes are December 29 and January 4.

Our World Cynosport Rally (WCRL) class is held on Saturdays at 7:00 PM. It is mainly intended to prepare handlers for WCR competition, but is open to anyone who wishes to learn about Rally. Our Beyond Beginners Agility class is held on Saturdays at 5:00 PM. Specific dates for both classes will be posted here.
