Pivotal Dog Training – The Best Dog Training in Pittsburgh!

You won’t find a more dedicated, cost-effective training company in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area than Pivotal Dog Training.

Our trainers are fellow dog lovers who have decided to take their passion and make it their career. We specialize in training aggressive dogs who have been labeled “a lost cause” as well as in basic obedience training and puppy training.

Our trainers are graduates of Canine Trade Group’s selective course for canine behavioral specialists. This intensive course involves over 320 hours of combined bookwork and practical, hands-on experience, and it ensures our trainers know everything they need to know about canine psychology, theory, history, and handling to help you before receiving their certification.

We are committed to helping you. While some training companies charge by the hour, day, or week, we will help you meet your training goals for one flat fee, no matter how long it takes to see your dog succeed. We only ask that you are as committed to your dog’s training as we are.

Your commitment is paramount during the training process. We at Pivotal Dog Training believe in in-home training, which means we teach you how to correctly handle your dog so they see you as a leader. While we could very well come into your home and teach your dog desirable behavior without your involvement, he or she would be learning to take cues from us rather than from you, the owner.

Board-and-train programs see little overall success for this very reason. If you send your dog away to be with a new person in a new environment, they will certainly learn to follow commands and behave appropriately in that environment, with that person. But dogs rely on structure and consistency, and to achieve lasting results, the training must be spearheaded by the person they will interact with the most, in their normal environment.

We provide you with the knowledge and techniques necessary to help your dog be the best he or she can be, and we stay by you every step of the way.

Contact Pivotal Dog Training to discuss your pet’s behavior with one of our professional, experienced trainers today. We can set up an in-home consultation to observe your dog in his or her normal environment and then customize training recommendations to fit your schedule and your dog’s individual needs.
