About the Club

This site was developed in order to provide information to other pointing dog trainers, and to the general public about our training facilities and member trainers of pointing dog breeds.

Penns Woods was founded in 1988 by a small group of people who met on a weekly basis at a dog breeders' home, to learn finer points on enhancing their pointing dog's performance.

In 1992, we were incorporated as Penn's Woods Pointing Dog Trainers, Inc. We are a charitable non-profit organization, and our goal is to both obtain and manage training areas for both membership and public use by raising funds in order to purchase or lease property. We are located in Pittsburgh, PA area and are affiliated with the American Kennel Club.

From April till late September, we meet every Wednesday evening for organized training. In the fall and winter, we hold events such as Youth Pheasant hunts, a private pheasant hunt day for members and guests, and a fun club event competition for members and their dogs that awards plaques and ribbons to the participants.
