Dog Behavior and Training Classes at Animal Friends – Scholarships Available!
Animal Friends, a no-kill animal shelter based in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, offers a variety of canine training opportunities. Plus, staff and volunteers evaluate dogs’ behavior when they arrive at the shelter, socialize them with animals and people, and find the best fit for their forever homes. At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we decided to partner with Animal Friends, because we know that proper training and socialization can do wonders to prevent injuries. Our attorneys and staff love dogs, and we promote dog safety.
The shelter offers dog behavior and training classes to help create the happiest and safest living environment for you and your family. Learn more about our partnership with Animal Friends, scholarships, and a chance to win free tickets to an event at Animal Friends!

Victim of a Dog Bite? Our Law Firm Can Help
If you’ve been hurt by a dog and you’re scared because you don’t know what to do, get started by contacting an experienced lawyer at the Pennsylvania law firm of Edgar Snyder & Associates. We love dogs and know they’re part of the family, but we also know how dog bite victims struggle to pay their medical bills, make up for missed work time, and live with scars or disfigurement. Our job is not to blame the dog, but rather to get compensation for our client — so they can move forward with their life and make ends meet.
