IN-PERSON GROUP CLASSES
We are pleased to announce training classes in our new home at Donaldson's Crossroads in McMurray, PA, located INSIDE Crossroads Court, next to The Little Gym.
COVID-19 Protocol: Masks required regardless of vaccination status, following guidelines from the CDC. We have small class sizes and social distancing in classes is easily achieved. Hand sanitizer is provided and our staff are fully vaccinated.
SPECIAL NOTICE: We are currently screening the dogs that come into classes to make sure they're ready for a group setting by having them come inearly to your first class. This way we can make sure they don't have any reactivity and avoid any embarrassment for the owner, stress for the dogs, and surprises for anyone. This is a free evaluation and only about 15 minutes long. Alternatively, we accept a recent video of your dog in a public place where strangers and other dogs are present to make sure that your dog isn't reactive.
Please note: unless otherwise noted, our classes run on a three-weeks-on, one-off schedule. Dates are listed under "Time". If there is no "Sign up" button, it means the class is full. If you are interested in taking a Full class, please be sure to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-212-6645 and let us know- we will add new classes according to interest and demand!
Specialty Classes: Tricks for Treats (titles available!), Nosework Beginners, Fun and Games, and more.
Crystal is a Certified Trick Dog Instructor and Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. If you are interested in titling your dog in either of these, you can do so with us! We are also working on adding the sport of Canine Nosework, and our trademark Fun and Games (a class that introduces dogs and handlers to a variety of dog sports and activities as well as teaches things like reading cue cards, targeting, and other mentally-stimulating tricks). These classes mix things up and add some fun and adventure to your dog's training routine!
Reactive Dog Classes (hybrid class)
This specialty class is for people who have issues with their dogs barking, lunging, and showing signs of over-excitement or aggression towards animals or people. Due to the difficulty some of these dogs have in class settings, we have created a curriculum that involves some human-only classes (can attend virtually) with support before you attend with your dogs. Reactivity can seriously impact the quality of life for dogs and their owners and our goal is to set them up for success. Crystal is a certified dog behavior consultant through CCPDT and will work hard to make sure that you and your dog never have to feel stressed on a walk again- after all, who is benefitting from that?
