Thank you for the great review! It was a pleasure working with you to help you find the right trainer and training for your dog! God bless you!!!
My rescue/Russell Terrier mutt always jumped and barked at oncoming cars. ALWAYS. So when I moved to a new home without a fence it made walks very difficult. Nothing I did helped. So I called Lisa and the problem was fixed after one training session and doing my homework. I’ll defintiely use her in the future when needed for my 3 dogs.Jun 18, 2018Verified
Lisa was amazing. I learned so much in a short amount of time. She’s super kind and has an incredible knowledge about dogs. My dog is better behaved now! And I have the confidence to train him going forward with what Lisa taught me. Highly recommend!Nov 8, 2017Verified
Lisa Freeman gives a very good mixture of behaviors for dog training at a very good price!! My Shi Tzu Bichon mix (Teddy) first started training with Lisa at 5 months of age (4 1/2 lbs) .and has already learned a great deal in only 3 sessions. She provides a well rounded class, giving exposure to a mixture of breeds so they can interact with one another in a safe setting.Sep 27, 2017Verified
Meeting to get tips on eliminating dog aggression. Trainer was informative, gave good tips and various solutions, gave verbal commands, came with products to try on dog to help with the solution of the problem.Mar 9, 2016Verified
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Through a runaway, abused dog, Snickers. He changed my whole life and gave me such a love for dogs, that I cannot imagine doing anything else now or ever!
- What types of customers have you worked with?We offer everything from basic dog obedience (come, sit, stay, down, etc) to more advanced dog obedience/pet therapy (leave it, being safe around other dogs/animals, walking on a loose leash without pulling, healing, etc) , and even service and guard dog training. We also work on breaking bad behaviors (bolting, not coming, barking, jumping, nipping, chewing, digging, etc).
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?A couple brought their very large, boisterous and aggressive Old English Bulldog to me. He growled and viciously barked at other people and dogs--pulling hard on the leash like he wanted to attack. In just one lesson this dog learned and obeyed all the obedience commands and was walking on a leash without pulling. After just two sessions they took him into a pet store, which they would have never been able to do before! He's doing wonderful!
