The last trainer scared Cassie. It made me so sad and angry. Lisa came in and now she goes crazy when she sees her. Cassie is so much more confident and happy now. I'd recommend Lisa to everyone!!

The group class did Hailey a world of good. Now we don't have to yell at her anymore. Learning how to train her without punishment was amazing and so new for us, but just what we needed, even though we didn't know anything other than what we had been doing. We enjoyed being in class as a couple and hope that you will be offering more classes so we can continue training with you.

"The lessons made me feel comfortable that I wouldn't be judged for mistakes I've already made. Lisa has extensive knowledge about  how dog's learn and behave."
