"Marge, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for coming to speak to CSX.

​​​​Our team offers the High Country’s only Certified Behavior Consultant Canine – Knowledge Assessed (CBCC-KA) and the only Certified Professional Dog Trainers – Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA).  What does that alphabet soup mean? It means that both Marge & Lisa’s knowledge of canine behavior and training have been independently tested and certified and that they adhere to a code of ethics as put forth by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. We also use methods consistent with those recommended by veterinarians who specialize in animal behavior.

Our Value To You



"Lisa, Thank you so muh for coming and sharing your knowledge with the Caring Canines group! Our program will be better because of you!

Kristi Leonard, Coordinator - Mayo Clinic Caring Canines

" I'm making the adjustments you suggested and today was already a better day, she slept through the night last night with no 3:30am wake up call, and quietly slept in the crate in my office through 90 minutes of meetings today. Plus, no accidents! I always feel after you've been here that I've been in the presence of a canine wizard. Your amazing grasp of behavior and common sense positive solutions make such a huge difference. Plus you also make me feel better and more confident, which allows me to relax and enjoy my dogs. " - Wendy

"While walking Mocha this morning, a woman walking her dog was a little way down the road, Mocha saw them, I redirected her and she followed me happily! No barking! Now the really amazing part, as we turned going back home a guy on a skateboard with his dog running next to him started down the street. Mocha saw him and looked back at me offering eye contact! Again no barking or lunging.   :D She is already getting so much better! " - Krista
