Teach dogs to come the client friendly, fun & easy way to safely enjoy off-leash activities!

“For years I’ve used videos of Lisa’s recalls to inspire police K9 handlers to improve their dogs’ recalls. Lisa provides just the right amount of science to explain why the method works so well…the exercises are fun for you and your dog…(and) you’ll build a dog that remains attentive when with you. With recalls and attention, the sky’s the limit as to what you two can do together.”
