Looking to build a stronger bond with your dog? We can help.
Helping you better communicate with your dog is our passion. Whether your end goal is an all-around, well-mannered dog, a competitive champion, or the resolution of serious behavior issues, we can help. Clear, positive communication and the ability to read what your dog is attempting to tell you are the foundation of a healthy relationship between you and your dog.
SCIENCE-BASED POSITIVE TRAINING
Here at Lead Me On, we utilize positive methodologies based on the science of behaviorism. These positive methods focus on your dog’s specific behaviors, their environments, and forming a healthy relationship between the two. With our science-based positive training approach, we focus on helping your dog develop the skills necessary to find success and conquer any type of environment.
SOLUTIONS FOR ALL BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS
Does your dog lack home manners? Public manners? Have special needs? We can help you identify the issue and and create a management plan that includes setting up an environment where your dog can only practice desired behaviors. In turn, the environment will restrict your dog from practicing undesired behaviors. You will have the opportunity to learn skills on how to best handle your dog in environments where you have less control — so your dog can be a success.
PARTNERED WITH THE VETERINARY COMMUNITY
Some dog behavior issues are a result of a health or medical condition. We have an extensive history of working with local veterinarians to identify causes of behavior — especially when there are health related reasons. Veterinarians focus on the influences on your dog’s health, and we focus on the motives of behavior.
BUILDING A LASTING BOND THROUGH CLEAR COMMUNICATION
By focusing on positive training methods instead of bad behaviors, your dog will begin to trust you and be more inclined to do what you want. When you only focus on the negative behaviors, you become a source of anxiety for your dog. By rewarding for positive behavior, you can begin to developing a strong friendship between you and your dog — and we can help.

The Social Puppy
In this course, we focus on teaching you how to properly socialize your puppy — providing you with an extensive amount of socialization opportunities in the class itself. The first few months of your dog’s life is the most critical for their development into adulthood; a period of their life where it’s necessary to imprint that new environments aren’t scary. In our enriching farm environment, your puppy will have the opportunity to interact with humans and animals of all kinds, including our ducks, geese, sheep, and chickens. A supplementary puppy class book will be provided upon registration for this course.
