The Owner Support Program is aimed to providing educational and referral services to dog owners. Cincinnati Pit Crew (CPC) recognizes that responsible dog owners face a variety of challenges related to the behavior, confinement, and veterinary care of their dog(s). CPC offers a variety of opportunities and resources for owners including socialization events and activities, training workshops, and veterinary and training referrals.


Blockheads responsible bully lovers


This group is a venue for responsible dog owners who wish to socialize with other dog owners. This is a social group not just for humans, but also for dogs. Events include: play dates, parties, group walks and outings to help dogs get appropriate socialization and for humans to share knowledge and ideas with one another.

Pack Walks

Periodic group pack walks facilitated by a local trainer benefit any dog and are especially helpful for dogs that are overly excited or reactive in nature. Pack walks help dogs overcome fear and anxiety and desensitize dogs to other dogs, people, and high-stress environments, making daily walks more enjoyable for both the dog and the owner. These walks also allow dogs to explore local venues providing mental stimulation and teach dogs how to behave in and safely coexist within each new environment. Additionally, pack walks give owners the opportunity to improve leash handling skills and read dog communication. Pack walks are scheduled at various local venues on a monthly basis.
