Lisa came to my house to help with my 1 1/2 yr old Aussie's separation anxiety. She gave me several solutions and things to work on. I loved her and so did my dog. I would highly recommend her and found her very easy to work with.Aug 11, 2016VerifiedElisabeth F.'s reply
Margaret: Loved you and your precious Aussie!!! Thanks for the great review. Keep up the amazing work!
Lisa is showing me what I need to do to be a better dog owner. I appreciate her knowledge.Jul 1, 2016VerifiedElisabeth F.'s reply
Melanie: It was my pleasure to work with you, after your dog had bitten someone. In my research, training, and evaluation I'm glad we were able to find the trouble wasn't the dog, but more training techniques and methods that needed to be administered. Great work! I wish you the very best. Thank you for choosing me to be your trainer.
I noticed a difference in just 1-2 sessions. Lisa is very knowledgable and explains things very clear! I have a mastiff with a lot of aggression and anxiety and she has done wonders to help get my dog back to being relaxed around other dogs. Worth every $$!! She truly is a dog whisperer!!Jun 24, 2016Verified
Lisa worked wonders with our newest dog who was causing chaos with our other two and being a chronic barker on top of it all. She showed us some very simple techniques that set us on the right path. She saved the day!Apr 9, 2016Verified
Lisa A Freeman did an outstanding job teaching my husband and I and training both our dogs today. I would recommend her to any of my friends. Only after 1 session we can see quite a positive difference in both our dogs. Job well done!Mar 21, 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!
