    Paula's Dog Services

    (28 reviews)

    I am very effective because I train with a marker (clicker) animals learn 45% faster with this method. I have a way of communicating with animals that is very calm and gentle. I respect the fact that dogs have no verbal ability. How do we communicate our needs? We use a marker word or a signal telling the dog they are correct and have earned a reward. I specialize in fearful behaviors and puppy training. I teach several classes. I am Peters Townships dog trainer and teach for them Monday night I teach puppy classes for Keystone Canine Club Friday nights. I love watching animals learn. It is amazing how much fun they have training and learning new behaviors. It gives me such pleasure to see a dog light up when the "Get It"

    Canine Assist

    (9 reviews)

    I have over 18 years of dog training experience, both with pet dogs and working dogs (service dogs for the disabled, search and rescue and detection dogs). I'm professional, reliable and resourceful. I try to remain flexible in my programs. I don't have a storefront or expensive overhead to support. I go to my clients or bring their dogs to my facility. I am happy to train your dog while you're at work during the day. I have recently relocated to Maryland, near Washington DC. I am happy to travel to MD, DC , WV and VA to pick up dogs for board and train. Please call if you have any questions!

    Off Leash K9 Training, Pittsburgh

    (6 reviews)

    No one else Guarantees their work, very few list their prices (modifying them based on breed and issue), and giving pups an Off Leash future is not even thought possible by most owners! What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their entire life on a leash, now enjoying the freedom of an off-leash life. We thrive on seeing the joy in both the owners’ and dogs’ faces when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.

  • Kindred K9s

    (2 reviews)

    Does your dog have issues? I work one on one with dog owners to correct behavior problems. I travel to the home to consult with the owner(s) and observe the problems that need addressing. I educate owners in the areas of dog psychology, body language and methods of correction. At the end of the first visit, usually lasting anywhere from one and a half to two hours, I set up a plan for the owners to follow for the next week or two. I return at the end of that time to follow up and check progress. If further sessions are necessary, I will advise the owner of that at that time. I specialize in aggression cases. I have been fortunate to have been able to save several dogs from having to go to shelters or be put to sleep. I absolutely love what I do, and it shows in my work. I will go the extra mile for my clients. The method I use is cheaper, in most cases, and more in depth and effective than traditional obedience training. My clients love the fact that they can use the knowledge I give them with any dog they may own in the future and never have to pay for training again. Clients love that, after trying everything else with little or no success, I can step in and correct the problem in 1-3 visits. I will travel anywhere within 2 hours of Cleveland, Ohio.

    Life With Dogz

    I service the Sewickley community exclusively, offering premium personalized pet care services that fit your dog and your lifestyle. I am the only certified dog trainer / walker offering group play and socialization. My company is locally owned and operated, bonded and insured. I am certified in canine first aid and CPR. I am a certified professional dog training focusing on general obedience and behavior modification. I can easily and quickly help you with creating good manners for everyday situations so that your dog becomes a well-behaved member of your family. Common solutions I offer include sitting, walking nicely on a leash, stopping jumping on people, counters or furniture, sitting calmly when the door bell rings, begging, riding in the car, etc. I do not offer group classes; only private one on one training. A dog playgroup will dramatically improve your dog's behavior, energy levels, socialization and general happiness. Dogs with dominance, aggression or possession issues are not permitted and all dogs must be up-to-date on vaccines. Owners can feel confident that their dogs are in a safe environment. Walking, sitting and overnight stays are customized to meet your needs. I am a member of several professional organizations such as IACP - Intn'l Assoc of Canine Professionals, APDT - Assoc of Professional Dog Trainers and IAABC - Intn'l Assoc of Animal Behavior Consultants.
