What They Say About Us

My husband and I were looking for a dog trainer for our pitbull (who's already an angel but just gets very excited with guests). Not only was she very friendly and positive, but she is also loving and knowledgable in what she does. Our pitbull is now VERY tame with our newborn son and behaves very well when guests are over. Another thing we loved about Lisa's method of training is that it's always been rewarding as opposed to bribe or strict training.

Tina N.

Lisa is wonderful- she is so great with all dogs - from little puppies to big, growly dogs. She takes the time to explain everything thoroughly - including helping to understand some of your dogs unwanted behaviours. She makes training fun for both you and your dog. Positive training is the way to go, and Lisa is the expert! She is very flexible and will do whatever she can to help you and your dog. Thanks, Lisa!
