Professional Dog Training in Pittsburgh

During this time we are pleased to feature training sessions with Paul Anthony and his proteges, Trainer Cecil and Trainer Chrissy. We understand that for many of you, your schedules and habits have changed drastically, and the needs of dogs and puppies don’t stop.

We take the task of maintaining cleanliness, and social distancing protocols very seriously, and have tried to offer solutions that take that into account.

Paul, Cecil's, and Chrissy's experience and expertise focuses on teaching client’s pets obedience, behavior modification & detection.

They use motivational, operant, and traditional training techniques to achieve the desired behavior from the dog. They strongly believe in the need to educate both owner and dog in order to nurture their relationship, and help them achieve their highest potential.
