Our location:
  1787 W. Trindle Rd, Suites 301-303, Carlisle, PA 17015

Our great new (as of April 2017) place is in the Fairview Center business park right next to the Carlisle Target shopping center. Fairview Center is just outside the Starbucks end of the shopping center.

**PLEASE NOTE** You cannot see our building from Trindle Rd, so look for the Fairview Center signpost (photo below) to know where to turn into Fairview Center. Once you're in Fairview Center, we are the only large red building among the dozen or so businesses located there. Look for all of the other people with dogs! 

Heading on Trindle Rd from Carlisle, go under the I-81 overpass. Go straight through the traffic light (with Sheetz on the left and the entrance to Target on the right). Take the next right into Fairview Center (this is actually Conrad Rd), and we are up ahead on the left - a large red building. Our entrance doors are marked with Good Dog Rising Training Room A, and Good Dog Rising Training Room B (all Puppy and Basic Manners classes are in Training Room B.)

About the Facility:  The new expanded facility has two separate climate-controlled rooms, one with about 4000 square feet of training space, and the other with 1500 square feet of training space and an office and restroom. There is plenty of off-street parking - you can park in front of our building, you can also park in the Fastenal spaces across the street since they are closed during our peak hours weeknights and weekends, or really anywhere you like. GDR has enough fully matted straight-line space for flyball, and several teams practice here. It is also available for rental for agility, freestyle, rally-O, and other dog activities. Stay tuned for photos as we paint and lay agility matted flooring - the new place is pretty amazing!

OUR BUILDING EXTERIOR:  Entrance doors  (the two to the right shown here) are now marked with our logo and "Training Room A" (2nd door from the left in this photo) or "Training Room B." (3rd door from the left in this photo.) There is plenty of parking in Fairview Center, including right across the street. There are several grassy areas, including in the rear of our building. There is a poop can in front of the building - please clean up after your dog in all areas! We want to be good neighbors. :)

TURN HERE: Here's the signboard to look for at the entrance to the Fairview Center business park. There's one of these signboards on Trindle Rd (across the street from Sheetz, and on the same side as where you turn to enter Carlisle Crossings shopping center). There is also a similar signpost at the other entrance to Fairview Center, which is closer to the Starbucks side of the Carlisle Commons shopping center.

Training Room B inside. Here we are set up for Basic Manners class with 7 individual training stations, one for each family. We have the dock door open on a beautiful sunny day - it has a 5 foot tall dog-proof lattice gate. This room is 25'x80' with an office and restroom on one end (behind the person taking the photo.) It is floored with True Blue agility mats. We have both heat and air conditioning for your comfort.

Training Room A inside.  We have the dock doors open on a beautiful sunny day - they have 5 foot tall lattice gating to keep dogs inside even when open. This room is 50'x80' with an equipment storage area on one end (behind the person taking the photo.) There is a door at the rear to Room B, which has the fridge and a restroom. There is also a rear exit door out to the grassy area behind our building. It is floored with True Blue agility mats. It has both heat and air conditioning.
