Question: How do I sign up for an Xcel Canine Training Class?

Answer: Signing up for our classes is as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Check the current class schedule for the class you want. Note the day, times and costs for the class.

2. Download the Xcel application (click here to download the application - PDF format or Word format) and complete it. (You may also scan the completed form and email it to info@xcelcaninetraining.com).

3. Make sure you include a check for the cost of the class (please refer to the current class schedule - click here). Please make checks payable to Xcel Canine Training. This is to hold your spot in the class and to put you on the roster. This also helps us in over booking our classes with too many dogs.

4. Include a COPY (please - no originals) of the dog's shot records or bring a copy of the shot records w/you to the first class meeting.

Include each of the above items (the application, your check, and the dog's shot records) in an envelope and mail it to:

Xcel Canine Training
5400 Progress Blvd.
Bethel Park, PA 15102

PLEASE NOTE: No dogs will be admitted to class without full payment made on or by the first class date OR without the dog's shot record.


Question: How do I know what classes are available currently?

Answer: Our class schedule is updated periodically as we complete each session of classes. Depending on the class you choose, how many weeks that class runs can vary. Please check our current class schedule (click here) to see the details of what classes are being offered. Days, times, instructors, and costs are listed for each class.


Question: How do I know that the class available is right for me and my dog?

Answer: We have included a general description of each class - available here. However, if you are still not sure if you and your dog will fit into the class you want, please call us at 412-833-2504 or email us at info@xcelcaninetraining.com to ask more questions.
