Fun, Personalized Training

As a positive trainer, I teach what *to do* to prevent or replace bad habits. How to make good choices in everyday life. 

Dogs of all ages behave better when they learn the essential skills: calmness, attention, cooperation, self-control, and confidence.

My approach applies modern training methods. It's kinder, faster, and more effective than the "traditional" or "balanced" methods.

We want to make sure you know how much we appreciate all that you have accomplished with Scout. There is no doubt that because of the patience, wisdom, and affection you shared with our little pup, she will enjoy a happier life. . . . You really are excellent at what you do.

Lisa was invaluable in helping us understand our standard poodle puppy, Luke, and how to help him overcome his issues. . . . We highly recommend her to anyone who wants a better behaving dog. Thank you, Lisa, for all you’ve done for us.

To see how quickly she went from ‘No way, dude’ to ‘Oh boy, let’s do it again’ is AMAZING . . . . You’re the best, thank you!
