My name is Linda Scopa, and I have been a professional dog trainer since 1998. Ohkom (pronounced OAK-um) Farms, a dog training and obedience center in Greensburg, PA, was started because I have had a personal mission, from day one, to train dogs and their owners. During my years working in a Veterinarian’s Office and volunteering at numerous animal shelters in the 80’s, people would actually want to put their animals to sleep due to behavioral problems. Due to the rabies law and the inability to vaccinate for rabies until your puppy was six months old, there was no training available until your dog was six months old.
My initial idea was to train as early as possible. I was the first in the area to offer all of the opportunities to owners and their pups. Education has always been the key to understand the bad behavior before it started. I began helping people in their homes to train early, and even brought the puppy home with me, if necessary. Hence, less dogs in the shelters and more happy owners. With today’s early rabies vaccinations, we are now able to start puppy classes as early as 12 weeks of age so owners can educate themselves and be better prepared to work through those tough puppy stages. I will always put the health and the welfare of your puppy first. My Training is always positive reinforcement. My mission is to help you through important training stages being Fun, Firm and Consistent. And remember, no question is stupid, just ask!
