About Barb
... Barb Levenson Dog Training Centers pet classes have been helping Pittsburgh dog owners train their dogs for 3 decades. All classes are specifically designed to help owners develop a positive canine relationship through Positive Reinforcement Training.  No choke chains or painful techniques are ever used in any of our classes.  

Class sizes are limited.  Each class size is determined by the number of instructors thus keeping a good student to teacher ratio.   As a result owners receive a lot of personalized attention from instructors in all dog training classes.   In addition Barb takes a personal interest in every student in the school and is accessible to them by phone or email.

Obedience classes are designed to teach the owners how to train their dog.  Pet owners have the benefit of Barb’s Positive Reinforcement Training Method as they learn her kind and gentle method to teach manners to their dog.  The program constantly evolves as new research and information yields innovative training and motivational techniques for the owners.  Also Barb’s dogs are used in her classes as demonstration dogs so owners are able to see first-hand the results of her methodology.  It’s time to move to this modern training method that is only available in our 12,000 square foot dog training building conveniently located in Pittsburgh, PA.
