Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with many people. Through some of these lessons long lasting friendships were developed. These are some kind words from some dear friends.
Lisa is our “dog whisperer” to our four-legged family and she has successfully trained all of our humans as well. We have known Lisa for 10 years, that’s 70 years to a dog. It’s safe to say she deserves the best “treats” afforded her, along with fresh air and sunshine. We openly have given her a “long leash” with all of her qualifications to babysit our four-legged friends. She’s the bomb and we dig what she poops out.
Lisa has such a passion and natural ability for training dogs…even ones with a difficult past. My boy, Little Larry, was abandoned as a little puppy. She trained this scared little feral dog to be a wonderful, well mannered dog!
I feel I can make the following testimonial about Lisa Rapacki’s abilities as a dog trainer because I have known her and called on her to utilize her talents for many years (and for those of you who know of me know I’m picky and vocal):
L = Lucky to have her talent
I = I would use her in a heartbeat
S = Second to none
A = Awesome
Lisa truly cares about you and your dog. She loves what she does and that passion comes across in her classes. I’ve attended numerous classes with Lisa including basic puppy and intermediate obedience. The instruction is clear and specific. It’s amazing how small changes can make a big difference in your dogs behavior. Lisa also provides lots of tips on how to handle specific issues with your personal dog. I have loved taking the agility classes… a great way to bond with your dog while having loads of fun. My dogs love the classes and Lisa !!
Lisa took the time to truly understand my lifestyle and what my dog Bruce would be facing on his day-to-day schedule. We are an active family and like to involve our dog in everything from outdoor dining to paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing, hiking and more. He went into her 15-day program as the tasmanian devil and came out smarter than freakin Lassy. He continues to amaze me every day. Thanks to Lisa’s training, we have been able to adapt Bruce’s commands to each sport he participates in. Our dog and our family both experience a greater happiness together thanks to Lisa.
We then used Lisa’s boot camp for our older(6 years) dog, and as hard as it was to leave him for 2 weeks, we knew he was in the best hands. The transformation was absolutely amazing. He went from a dog that was scared to one that had confidence and could be taken out around other dogs, loud noises, and other everyday things that used to frighten him. Once his training was done, she met with us to go over the commands and what to continue to work on so he wouldn’t backslide.
Lisa’s help has been invaluable and we will continue to use her for our four-legged family’s behavior and training needs.
