Annual Events with Petagogy
Petagogy hosts many free events throughout the year. Although we’re always doing new things, there are a few mainstay events that we do every year, and sometimes every season! Check back for more information about upcoming events, and save the date for these customer favorites!
Check out our Facebook page for details on all our upcoming events!
Ask the Trainer - Jan. or Feb.
New pets are a popular gift for Christmas, so we try to help pet owners solve any behavioral issues with our free Ask the Trainer event held in January or February each year. We host a dog trainer at the store on a Sunday afternoon who is available to answer any training-related questions and provide tips to help customers manage their dogs’ specific behavioral issues.
Bark Shadyside Pup Walk
April 8, 2017
We worked with the Shadyside Chamber of Commerce to secure a Biz Buzz grant from the Urban Redevelopment Authority in 2013. Funds from this grant were used to create the annual Bark Shadyside Pup Walk, a 1.5 mile dog walk and event featuring pet vendors and activities, held in April.
Pet Vendor Fairs
June 4, 2017 – Shadyside
October 15, 2017 – Greensburg
Petagogy Shadyside opened in June 2011, so we commemorate our anniversary with a fun customer appreciation day on the first Sunday in June every year. We also celebrate in Greensburg on a Sunday in September or October! The events feature representatives from pet food and treat companies, hands-on family-friendly activities, pet photos with Jenny Karlsson Photography, tons of giveaways, raffles and more!
Pet Photos with Santa - Nov.
Santa comes to Petagogy every year to take pictures with our customer’s pets! Jenny Karlsson Photography takes free pictures of pets sitting with Santa and sends customers a free low-resolution digital photo as well as offers the option of ordering holiday cards, ornaments, prints and more. All pets are welcome!
Yappy Hour - Four Fridays per Year (Once Every Season)
Petagogy Yappy Hours have become famous (at least locally!) for delicious dog-themed drinks and adorable canine visitors! Bring your pups and join us on Friday nights four times per year (once every season) for Yappy Hour and enjoy free drinks (usually beer) for the humans and free Barley Bones (treats made from spent brewing grains) for the dogs.
