Lisa was called the “dog girl” from earliest childhood. She has never lived a day without at least 2 canine friends in her life. After taking a university degree in neuroscience, Lisa started an apprenticeship to become a family dog training instructor. Lisa was one of the first certified pet dog trainers in Canada. She has spent the last 23 years teaching family dog training classes, running a successful dog training business and currently manages the puppy program for a large service dog training school. She was the technical writer for a well-received dog training book: Teach Yourself Visually Dog Training. Lisa has had numerous apprentices over the years and takes satisfaction in knowing that she has contributed to good quality instruction being offered to pet parents. Lisa and Margie took their many years of experience and distilled it into My Puppy Tracker. There is an easy way to train a puppy. Communication is the key. Understanding what the puppy is saying is a primary driver behind MPT. The relationship between people and their dogs is a fascinating dance that takes patience, devotion, and a sense of humour. MPT helps illuminate the steps of the dance.
