“Thank you so much for your time and energy! Your input on Sadie's little "sniffari" adventures has really made me feel better about letting her explore out and about. Beforehand I would have thought something like that wouldn't be enough and I'd need to do more. Thanks for relieving me of that concern"

“Thank you Lisa for helping Asha learn basic cues & for all your advice. We have both enjoyed the 1-on-1 puppy school lessons, they were interesting and informative. You have taught us in a fun way! If anyone has a puppy you need to get training from Lisa you'll be as glad as I am that you did"

“Lisa was amazing with both our dogs, Betty and Ruby. She is kind and caring nature show through, she is professional and incredibly knowledgeable.
