Lisa is a long-time dog owner. She has had dogs while living in the city, the suburbs, and on a farm. She has spent years working one-on-one with clients who need help with dog behavior problems. This experience, as well as her years teaching dog training classes through the shelter, give her a good appreciation of what people want and need to enjoy their dogs to the fullest.
