What Our Customers Say

  • "Lisa has such an amazing ability to work with dogs, I am amazed at the progress I have seen her make with dogs you would never think could focus. You can tell that dogs not only respect her, but they love her to pieces! It is rare to find a dog trainer that relies on positivity and making sure the dog is happy and comfortable. I would highly recommend Lisa’s training services."

    Hannah H.
  • "Having a great talent is only part of what makes Lisa so wonderful; her passion for puppers completes the package. Do not hesitate to choose The Clever Canine. Lisa will win over both your heart and your furry child's."

    Tai C.
  • "Lisa worked with myself and my miniature Dachshund on the basics. It did not take Frank long to learn how to walk by my side without pulling, to sit, stay and lay down. We even did trainings to learn leave it and Frank will not go after a treat laid in front of him until given the command to do so. I am extremely pleased with the results especially working with a normally stubborn break of dog. I would recommend The Clever Canine to anyone that is looking to develop a closer bond with their pup and have a bit of structure in that relationship too!"

    Andrew M.
  • "Lisa is a wonderful person and awesome trainer! I have learned so much from her! She was so patient with me and my dog Macy when working on Macy’s leash reactivity! I would totally recommend her!"

    Tiffany R.
  • "Lisa is one of the best trainers in the Triad! She has helped me understand and train our high-energy Sheltie. Her professionalism, experience, and patience are second to none. She is personable, intelligent, committed, and a lovely person. Without hesitation we highly recommend The Clever Canine!"

    Susan F.
  • "Lisa is incredible! Her understanding of pups and how they learn really makes a difference!! She was so patient and her positive methods helped me learn how to be a better pet parent and canine communicator!"

    Leslie C.
  • "Wonderfully patient. The Clever Canine works on both short-term goals and long term results. We highly recommend."

    Janine C.
  • "Lisa is fantastic! She is patient with every dog she trains, and can tailor her training to each dog, regardless of their previous level of training."

    Rebecca G.
  • "Lisa has worked with our beagle puppy for almost 4 years and she's been the best teacher ever!! She's patient, loving, compassionate and totally understands our dog. But best of all, Lisa understands my husband and I who are older puppy parents and just a little bit over protective. She has walked us through many issues we've had over the years with our beagle and I can honestly say I trust Lisa with every suggestion and recommendation."
