My name is Stefanie Theis and I have had a love of dogs from a very young age. I learned a lot about training when we got our first family dog while I was in elementary school. With him I learned a lot about dogs and dog training, he really opened my mind and world up.

Fast forward to now and I’ve been involved in dog training more formally for about 8 years. It all started with learning agility and teaching agility but I have since branched out. I’ve helped raise and train service dogs, involved in local dog training schools to help teach classes and working with a local rescue to provide training for families after they bring home their rescue. My current passion is trick training and foundation training for young dogs.

My dogs and I enjoy trick training, disc, dock diving, hiking and agility.

My current pack consists of:

  • Stanley, 8 year old Terrier Mix
  • Maeby, 5 year old MinPin x Jack Mix
  • Bernie, 2 year old Terrier Mix
  • Rikki Tikki Tavi, 1 year old Border Collie/Border Terrier mix

About Do More With Your Dog!®

Do More With Your Dog!® (DMWYD) is the official sanctioning and organizing body for the sport of Dog Tricks.

DMWYD is more than a training program… it’s a lifestyle. It is a philosophy which encourages the integration of your dog into your life in a variety of ways—through sport, training, or accompanying you to more places. Dogs have a way of making the activities we share with them more fun, and by giving them training, we allow them to participate in more areas of our life.

The DMWYD positive training philosophy is committed to helping dogs and their owners develop joyful relationships based on trust and built through positive reinforcement training technique

There are 4 Trick Dog Titles available through DMWYD: Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert. Titles can be given out by a Certified Trick Dog Instructor and those titles can be done remotely through video review. For those interested DMWYD titles can easily be transferred to AKC for a title processing fee.
