Ask the Trainer
Training is always a good thing, whether for new puppies or older dogs that just need a refresher, so we try to help pet owners solve any behavioral issues with our free Ask the Trainer events held several times each year. We invite knowledgeable local dog trainers to answer any training-related questions and provide tips to help customers manage their dogs’ specific behavioral issues.
Bark Shadyside Pup Walk
April 28, 2018
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

September 30, 2018 – Greensburg
Petagogy Shadyside opened in June 2011, so we commemorate our anniversary with a fun customer appreciation PAWty 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, tons of giveaways, raffles and more!

Yappy Hour - Four Fridays Per Year
July 20, 2018 – Shadyside
July 27, 2018 – Greensburg
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. On certain occasions we invite animal rescues to guest bartend (and donate 10% of sales to the rescue)!
