Pender’s 24 Hour Vet & Emergency Animal Hospital offers all of these for Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area residents.

Current law and our standards prohibit us from practicing medicine over the phone without physically examining your pet but we can assist you in deciding if your pet is having an emergency and needs to be seen by an emergency veterinarian in your area.


A healthy respect FOR you and other individuals BY your dog, and a healthy respect BY you towards your dog, its intelligence, and its desire to please you….that is the beginning of a great long term relationship. Pender recognized this years ago and has been providing obedience classes on a regular basis since 1991.

We believe that all young dogs need (as a minimum education) PUPPY KINDERGARTEN. They often arrive for their first class a little on the “wild” side, but most leave at the end of the sessions quite “civilized.” A true win/win.

Our class levels are:

  • Puppy kindergarten
  • Basic Obedience
  • Intermediate Obedience
  • Advanced Obedience
  • Canine Good Citizen

Private lessons are also available. Click here for a schedule of all of our classes.
