Hi! My name is Lisa and I am the founder and trainer of DogGone Proud Dog Obedience / Behavioral Training. A business owner since 2004, I am an honorary graduate of Animal Behavior College (ABC) and an ABC certified pet dog trainer. I am also a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT).
I teach dog owners the art of understanding dog behavior, communication skills and proper handling of your pet. I use positive reinforcement and gentle, effective handling skills to influence your dog's behavior. I never use nor allow choke chains, prong or shock collars in my classroom.
My goal is to educate you on using humane techniques, teaching you responsible pet care and motivational dog training.
Join me and let me help you and your dog better understand each other and build a long and happy relationship!

I am a "DogGone Proud" owner of 4 beautiful K-9's in my family. They are Rosco (left), Faith (black dog), Zoey, (small dog), and Alexandra (far right). They are all rescue dogs and are very important and loved members of our household. Everyone has a great time and lives peacefully together!
I am an avid dog lover and I have been a long time volunteer at various animal shelters. My heart would break when I would see so many unwanted and misunderstood pets with no one to love and care for them and give them good homes.The number one reason dogs are given up to animal shelters is behavior problems. So many of these dogs are destroyed because people are not properly informed and educated on how to handle, understand and communicate with their fellow canine.
I made it my goal to not only learn how to teach basic obedience, but to learn the art of human-to-dog communication and visa-versa. We need to understand how a dog thinks and why he does the things he does before we can ever develop a trusting and lasting relationship with our pet.
