Lisa participated in training police dogs during her 20 year career as a Police Officer/EMT. After retirement from law enforcement in 2004, she began working with her husband, Brian, at his newly formed dog training company, K9 Basics. She is the driving force behind the company’s continued growth and expansion into varied areas of training such as Puppy Pre-School, Agility and Pet First Aid/CPR. Lisa’s greatest passion is getting all dogs into or keeping them in their “Forever Homes” through patience, understanding and training. Lisa is a lover of all animals and she and Brian currently own 7 dogs (“Apache” & “Phoenix” – Czech Shepherds, “Cheyenne” – a Lab/Pit mix, “Geronimo” – a German shorthaired pointer, “Zeus” – a German shepherd, “Cherokee” – a German Shepherd, and “Pawnee” – a Pit Husky), 7 cats and 1 bird.
