Why should you train your dog?


The benefits of having a trained dog are nearly limitless! From the moment you get your new puppy or dog, here's a run-down of just some of the advantages and benefits:

  • Puppy classes provide the opportunity for getting your new family member started off right.
  • Puppy classes provide the experiences and opportunities for your puppy to develop interaction skills with other puppies, with people, and in new environments.
  • Puppy socialization has been found to be critical for thee psychological health of adult dogs.
  • Training classes provide dog owners the skills and knowledge for dealing with common normal dog behaviors starting with puppy behaviors such as house training and chewing.
  • No matter what age you start training your dog, foundation training provides the basis for any activity, behavior or job you want your dog to do.
  • Training provides dogs with the basic good manners we all want from polite greeting when guest arrive, to walking nicely on the leash, to coming when called.
  • A trained dog is a fully participating member of the family. What a gift for all of you!
  • A trained dog joins in the fun when company comes, accompanies the family to the kids sports games, goes with you to visit friends and relatives, goes for hikes, swims, and everything else the family does together.
  • And most importantly: Training has been shown to be the single most important thing that keeps a dog in his/her "forever home"!



About the Trainer


Certified Trainer Stephanie Dom

In 2002, I left corporate America to go after my dream. I went back to school for dog training and kennel management. After I graduated I started Lead Me On in 2003. Since graduating, I attend seminars, lectures & workshops every year to continue my education and to keep up with the latest training techniques. My goal as a trainer is to educate my clients and give them real solutions to help them in their training efforts. With the use of balance training, I have trained 100’s of dogs in Cambria, Somerset and Indiana Co. Since each dog is unique and responds differently, we will design a training program specific to your needs. My clients know I am always just a phone call or email away. You can always count on us to train your dog with the love and compassion we would give our own.
Ever since I was a child, animals have always been a part of my life. Growing up by a dairy farm I would visit the farm daily and watched as the cows were milked and would visit with all the animals. Now as an adult, I share my home with my husband Wyatt, 2 sons, Cameron and Austin and 6 animals, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Training to me is not a job, but something I love to do! How many people can say they play with dogs all day!

    I contacted Stephanie for help training my corgi, Louis, to be more receptive to petting and help walking on a leash. She helped me teach him how to heel which that alone made the training worth it. Not to mention, the work we did with him allowing humans to touch and pet him. When starting the training Louis wouldn’t let anyone touch his paws without pulling them away, but with the work we did he now lets me hold his paws! It is so convenient for Stephanie to come to your house. We also made a trip or two to Petco so that Louis could get better at socializing and so that Stephanie could help me recognize his body language when he was in distress. I definitely recommend Stephanie if you want a more intimate and personalized training experience!

    I called Stephanie for help with training our dog Kobe that was bounced back and forth between the humane society and homes. Stephanie did wonders with training me on how to use the proper commands for Kobe. Kobe obviously had been trained previously and is a wonderful dog. As his new (much smaller than he is) owner I wanted to keep up with his training so I wouldn’t ruin or spoil the well mannered gentleman that he is. I highly recommend Stephanie for help whether its the owner or the dog that needs the training. Stephanie has compassion for the dogs and cares for their well being, so is able to advise on the best way to handle any problems or adversity.

    I contacted Lead Me On to help my 2 year old Weimaraner, Duke, who had some issues with new people coming to the house or approaching him outside. I got a really quick response from Stephanie and we set up 5 sessions for Duke. We worked with Duke at our home a few times but Stephanie met us at a (very busy) vet’s office for some socialization practice as well as Petco. I was so pleasantly surprised with how well Duke did with only a few sessions with Stephanie. I am now much more confident in being able to take Duke to public places (yes, Stephanie helped not only my dog, but me as well). I have had several new people in the house lately, and Duke has been much more accepting of the new norms for greeting people and with being less nervous. I would recommend Lead Me On and Stephanie to anyone who is looking for an experienced, highly communicative, and helpful trainer.

    We recently adopted a shelter dog, who we named Ole’, who must have had a rough past life. While he is truly a loving boy, he did come with a lot of anxiety/stress related aggression that was territorial related. He would meanly bark and nip at visitors & become this whole other dog once you rang our door bell/knocked on the door. He’d pee on the floor & had a hard time being comfortable/settling down with anyone else in the house besides my boyfriend & I. Stephanie/”Lead Me On” came to our house and took time to assess Ole’, and really focused our sessions on not only training Ole, but taught my boyfriend Mike and I what we need to do to help Ole in getting to a point where he is less anxious/territorial.
    All of our family and friends have noticed a great difference in Ole, his true personality is starting to show to others, and he’s able to just enjoy being a dog a bit more.

    Thank you so much for all that you have done Stephanie!
