About Our Classes
Misty Pines offers a variety of classes, programs, activities and services to enrich you, your family, and your dogs lives. Our training programs are informative and educational as well as entertaining for your whole family. Group classes are engaging for both you and your dog, and you will learn how to take your dog through real-life challenges with flying colors. Our Class syllabus prepares dogs and handlers to achieve their AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Therapy Dog International (TDI) certifications. Private lessons give you the chance to focus specifically on your dog’s obedience and your handling skills.
Our dog training classes are designed to be user friendly. We offer many classes on an ongoing schedule throughout the year. This means that each level of class runs every week, same time, same station, fifty-two weeks out of the year. After an initial orientation, owners and dogs come weekly or as often as they can, either paying as they go for each class or purchasing a Class Pass to save 10% on classes. The Dog Park Grounds are included in the class price on the days that you attend class. As the owners and dogs learn and succeed, they move to a more challenging class level. This flexible schedule provides training for the different stages throughout their pet's life.
We offer k9 behavior solving consultations, dog obedience classes, agility, gun dog, and all aspects of our training through private lessons at our Training Center. Private dog training sessions are scheduled by appointment. We will provide you with the tools and skills to bring your dog through those real-life challenges with flying colors. We also offer a boarding and training program referred to as Dog Boot Camp.
Misty Pines Dog Training Center offers many various classes, programs and instructions for owners and their dogs to reach specific goals. The Center offers Clicker Training, Tracking, Sporting and Gun Dog Workshops, training and testing for Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Therapy Dog International (TDI) certification. Upcoming classes and activities are posted in our Training Center and website. We proudly sponsor our DAF (dogs adopted for friendship) program, a wonderful dog adoption service, networking with our Pittsburgh Area Animal Shelters. Stop in and see some great dogs that need a home.
