Lisa was very helpful with our 9 year old beagle who had started getting aggressive with my husband and teenage daughter. All her training used only positive reinforcement and her assessment was quick and on point. I never thought we would be able to train our old dog!! Lisa is very knowledgeable and uses different methods until she found what worked. She also spent one on one time with our daughter to address her concerns and interactions with our dog. She is very relatable and friendly along with firmness in dealing directly with our beagle. I would highly recommend her for any training!!Dec 15, 2019Verified
I have a 6 year old Pit/Boxer mix who recently started showing some aggression toward other dogs and some people. The moment Lisa walked in the door I knew she was the trainer for Troy. She knew exactly what to do to make Troy comfortable with herself and strangers. Not only did she train Troy but she made sure we knew exactly what to when she wasn’t here. After only 4 sessions Troy is so well behaved, listens to my commands, and I have all the confidence in him! I highly recommend Lisa for any of your training needs!Oct 29, 2019Verified
Lisa is very personable, can tell she likes her work and the dogs she works with. She is also training my daughters two new pups.Jun 13, 2019Verified
Unfortunately Lisa was not the trainer for us. We were really happy to see that she was not scared of our dog like most people, and she did an amazing job recommending people who could help us such as animal behaviorists. She really helped us decipher why our dog was acting this way, and give us some insight on what his past may have been like. Overall Lisa did a great job. And since we needed someone with a PhD, she didn’t charge us for the lesson.Jun 8, 2019Verified
Lisa was absolutely amazing and very helpful with our German Shepherd Brock!! She came into our home and we felt so comfortable once we saw the interaction between her and Brock! She knew exactly what to do so he wasn’t showing aggression and gave us tips on what we can work on with Brock which has been very helpful!!! Anyone looking for a trainer I would definitely recommend Lisa so very professional and knows her stuff!!Nov 26, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All pricing is per hour. Depending on location in the Columbus area it is $70.00 per lesson if we need to drive further we may need to adjust the price for additional mileage.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attend training classes and seminars on a regular basis as well as network with others in my field. I have been through National All Breeds training, Trained at National K-9, Graduated from CATCH Canine Academy.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It is actually very relaxing and fulfilling for me. I don't do it full time yet, but hope to be able to someday.
