SchH/IPO Clubs/Trainers

Trying to find a club near me. Greensburg, PA. 30 miles east of Pittsburgh, Pa. I contacted one club over 6 weeks ago but never got a return email or phone call. I also noticed no activity on their web page and facebook page. Can anyone help me find a club?

There are a few in your area. Different organizations you can look into to. USCA, DVG, GSDCA. Below are the USCA clubs.

Go to here for PA clubs

And here for Ohio clubs

Expect to drive a distance. I drive 3 hours north to my club and 3 hours south to a helper I work with.

Contact Joeri Veth at Northern Borders LLC for training....he has a facebook page


I am near Monroeville - we train in Darlington, Beaver County....there is also a club, Keystone Buckeye Hundesport....but need to contact Joeri or his fiance Katie

Mountaineer in WV is probably closer...Joe Gribbons

There is a place to train in Darlington?

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!

I never came across this one I'll have to check into it. I contacted one called Penn-Ohio but never heard back from them. I am actually in New Alexandria.
I really would like to just visit a club for now and see if this is for us (dog and me). After I posted this I discovered a few other disciplines that maybe more of what I'm looking for.

It is a new club (USCA) so may not have been on the website when you were looking.....connected to a professional trainer's business....most people do privates with Joeri and some become club members....they have a CGC event this weekend I think, connected to the Beaver Valley Kennel Club...so maybe look that up and arrange a visit. Also, there are 2 upcoming trials in April and May.

Lee,
We are going to Westmoreland County Obedience Training Center this weekend to take the CGC test. I think it's Saturday. I see your a breeder wish I would have found you a year ago when I was looking. I will be again in the year so I'll keep you in mind, if that's OK. I would love to get together and pick your brain sometime. Where in Monroeville are you located? I grew up in that area, Turtle Creek, although I moved from there 35 years ago.
Thanks,
Alan
