Jana H. -- Experienced, kind and very patient. gave great tips and my puppy had already learned several commands during the first session!! cant wait for our next one. thank you.
Rachel S. -- I met lisa when I needed help working my reactive dog through a hard move to a new environment. she was reactive to other dogs within our neighborhood and generally very anxious and worried in our new neighborhood. we learned management skills for her behaviors and methods of modification to help her improve behaviorally. We've had the opportunity to boost our girl's confidence with trick training and freestyle and I continue to keep her in classes (even though group classes seemed unattainable at one time for my reactive pup) And we always have an outlet for her to continue learning and working. we've even been able to get her Canine Good citizen certification which Precious had been unable to accomplish.
robin h. -- lisa does a fantastic job with my dog. he has learned more service dog jobs thru her training. she has made learning fun for my little guy so he wants to go to class and learn. she also has given me tools to keep training even when we are away from class.

Thanks to her guidance, I have a wonderful, fun loving pup (who just happens to look like Dali's twin!) One look at all the things she's taught her dogs and you realize just how great she is with these wonderful creatures.

Toby M. -- Highly recommend Lisa, she helped me to understand why my dog was leash reactive and helped me correct the problem, she also taught my dog to use my treadmill which is fabulous when I get home from a long day of work and am too tired to walk Bella.
Paul S. -- Lisa helped us with training tips and even taught Baylee to walk the treadmill. We always found her to be helpful and most of all so wonderful with Baylee.
