Make Every Day a Great Day 
with Your Dog!

Lisalea is focused on creating win-win relationships for humans and their beloved dog(s). 


Whether you experience challenges living harmoniously with your dog, or you have a new pup and want to start on the right foot, Lisalea is here to help you and your dog have a mutually rewarding relationship.


Providing real world training in your home and out in public, she brings root cause solutions to the daily challenges you and your dog face. 


Lisalea's style of clicker training inspires you to have a deeper connection with your dog. She empowers you as an effective leader, and she engages the creative 

intelligence in your dog, thereby enhancing your relationship greatly. Lisalea's methods set dogs up for success, and allow them to make good choices. Learn how freeing it is (for both of you!) to NOT have to tell your dog what to do all the time.


"Lisalea is the most amazing trainer I have worked with in the 20 years we've had dogs. She has worked with me clicker training my dog who reacts to other dogs on the trail or even across the street. I am in utter awe of her skills and ability to communicate with my dogs. I watched today as she got Oliver to ignore three dogs at the fence barking at him as we walked by. She had his attention, and even had him lying down calmly within a foot of the fence, where the dogs were charging at him. Before working with her, Oliver would be jumping and growling and trying to attack these dogs. After working with her, I'm once again excited to walk him. I offer the highest of recommendation to this woman and her skills with dogs. She's a treasure and we're delighted to have learned about her!"

“Lisalea helped me find each of my puppies and has been invaluable along the way, particularly with socialization, off-leash work, jumping, household manners; as well as generally understanding my dogs' behavior and needs. 

I'm amazed by how efficient and effective her interventions are. My dogs' behavior changes very quickly when I follow her guidance. Lisalea is truly gifted and sessions with her are fun for both me and my dogs. We couldn’t be happier with her work!”
