Training Classes

At Walkers, we know obedience training is a key part in maintaining a happy, balanced relationship with your dog.  Training Classes provide you with the structure and the know-how to succeed with training your dog.  Our training staff uses a positive-reinforcement approach and will work hands-on with you and your pet.

We offer classes in small groups on Wednesday and Thursday evenings in at our locations in Murrysville and North Versailles respectively.
