***We are located in the Fairview Center Business Park next to the Carlisle Crossings / Target Shopping Center ***
Directions to our Facility:
***PLEASE NOTE*** you cannot see our building from Trindle Rd., so look for Fairview Center signpost (photo below) to know where to turn into Fairview Center. Once you're in Fairview Center, we are located in the only large red building among the dozen or so businesses located there. Look for all 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 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 (see photo above). 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 our Facility:
Our 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 with an office, and a restroom. There is plenty of off-street parking- you can park in front of our building or in front of Fastenal across street since they are closed during our peak hours weeknights and weekends, or park anywhere you like. GDR has enough fully matted, straight-line space for fly-ball and several teams practice here. It is also available for rental for agility, freestyle, rally-o and other dog activities. Several grassy areas, including in the rear of the building, surround our facility and are a great place to potty your pup before class. Please clean up after your dog and deposit their poop bags in the can in front of our building. We want to be good neighbors!
