Dog & Owner Training

It is proven that dogs will achieve behavioral balance more quickly and successfully when their families demonstrate consistent training, structure, and confidence! It doesn’t matter what the issue is, we work together to make sure that owners feel like proud, successful leaders for their dogs, and that the dogs understand the right behaviors and eventually learn to willingly choose these behaviors on their own!

Aggression & Anxiety – We Fix That!

Pivotal Dog Training is there for you and your dog! What about just brushing up on some basic manners and commands? We cover the fundamentals too, both for adult dogs and for our puppies! No behavioral issue is too difficult for us, and we do NOT discriminate based on behavior, breed, size, temperament, age, etc. Any dog that wants to be behaviorally balanced is welcomed at Pivotal Dog Training!

Reward-based and Commitment-based Dog Training

Reward-based and Commitment-based Dog Training Here in Pittsburgh, we strive to help our canine community, and the owners that care and love their fur babies. Through professional dog training, we help dogs overcome their behavioral issues, and also teach owners how...

Balanced, Reward Based Approach

The training plans we devise are customized and are not only based on our professional expertise, but also on the individual dog’s lifestyle, pace, and specific issues. We identify the behavior problems and also the owner’s training goals for the dog, and commit to the family until the job is accomplished. This helps guarantee success and promote lifelong results!

When it comes to cost, we offer very reasonable prices for the work that we provide. Because of our commitment-based philosophy, we take a one-time fee that covers a LIFETIME of in-home, private training. This ensures commitment from both owner and trainer, and keeps us focused on the dog’s growth, rather than money. We also feel that this is financially fair to our clients, rather than nickel and diming them with training fees per hour or per lesson. Every dog is different and works at their own pace, so we want to make sure that whether it takes five lessons or fifteen lessons, your dog will succeed and also your bank account won’t be drained!

Pivotal Dog Training Pittsburgh specializes in private, in-home dog training for any behavioral issue. We cover basic obedience, aggression rehabilitation, puppy training, and we even have an expecting parents training program that teaches the dog to be prepared for the arrival of a new baby in the home! We also offer group obedience classes in different locations in the Pittsburgh area.
