If you’re looking for a fun activity and good way to bond with your dog then this tricks class is the class for you and your dog! Similar to Agility, teaching Tricks is a fun break from regular obedience training but continues to build the working relationship between you and your canine companion. Tricks are behaviors that are outside of our typical curriculum and often involve multiple steps per behavior.
Recommendations: Bring a hungry dog, leash and collar, bait bag and yummy treats. If you do not have a treat bag, they are sold at Misty Pines. You may purchase one before class.
Registration online or by phone required to attend class.
Having a dog that is a pleasure to walk is, well…a pleasure. We want to help you enjoy your time outdoors with your dog on and off leash.
Walking a dog on a loose leash for a longer distance and duration is one of the most challenging exercises for humans and their dogs.
This clinic will incorporate a lecture in combination with demonstrations of tools and training techniques. The walking behaviors we will cover are Heel, Easy, This Way, Pull, Wait, and Take A Break.
This open forum class focuses on how to correct and inhibit common nuisance behaviors of dogs and how to train the dog for a more desirable behavior. Some of the behaviors we address are pulling on the leash, jumping up, digging, barking, counter surfing, mouthing and play-biting and more. Please join us if you would like help in training your dog to be a better house-mate and companion. Please pre-register.
Held on the 5th Saturday of each eligible month.

Vaccination Requirements for All Services at Misty Pines Pet Company: All dogs must be current on Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella (Bordetella every 6 months) vaccinations. The Leptosporosis (Lepto/L) vaccine is not required, however, Misty Pines highly recommends that your dog receives it. All pets must have received inoculations at least 10 days prior to their visit to Misty Pines. The waiting period will allow your dog to build sufficient immunity to the vaccinations which will make your dog less susceptible to catching or transferring any unwanted viruses. This includes new and updated vaccinations. Your pet cannot be over due for vaccinations - NO EXCEPTIONS. For example, if your pet is scheduled to visit Misty Pines on May 14 and received vaccinations on May 6, we cannot accept your pet due to the insufficient 10 day waiting period. Please bring vaccination records with you or fax to the Misty Pines office at 412-367-7387.
