Becky: It was my pleasure to work with you and your precious pup. Thank you for choosing me to be your trainer. I know your pup will be amazing because you really follow instructions and are a great pet parent.
We had one session with Lisa and right away we can see the big difference in our puppy! Its like night and day. :) We simply wanted him to stop chewing our toes (on top of everything else:) and to come to us when we call his name. Lisa has made all that happen in just one visit! We are every satisfied and will definitely call her back again for more training! GraceSep 26, 2016VerifiedElisabeth F.'s reply
Grace: I enjoyed our session so much! It was great to see your puppy do a 90 degree turn in the first session. You can call any time, I'd be happy to come back. You are a wonderful couple, that pup is definitely blessed!
Lisa was wonderful. She provided me with loads of information. She is very professional and worked well with my puppy. I actually wrote everything down in my notebook after my session so I could remember everything and work with my puppy. After our session she told me to call if I had any questions or issues. She is a very good trainer, I would definitely recommend her to anyone!Sep 16, 2016VerifiedElisabeth F.'s reply
Bianca: I always love meeting and working with people and their pets who are motivated to do the right thing. You are amazing and I had so much fun! Your pup did sensational. And yes, I am here for you if you need anything.
I had a very positive experience. One session with multiple suggestions and my dog was a different dog. Easy to implement, positive for my dog and put me back in control. Many thanks!Sep 6, 2016VerifiedElisabeth F.'s reply
Kristin: Thank you for the compliment and great review. I do love to give helpful tips and do great training, but it's owners like you who do their homework that make me shine :) Good job!

- 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!
