Lisa Learned She Had Great Dog Handling Skills

Working with Ken (Founder of Gentle Dog Training) to get Jack squared
away, Lisa learned she had great dog handling skills. That gave her the
confidence to start her own dog care business. She offered doggy
day care, basic grooming, dog walking and dog transport services.
She was a natural! Ken even hired her to groom some of his own
dogs, and he admired the way she handled them.

Soon Ken asked Lisa to become a Gentle Dog
apprentice. She accepted in typical Lisa
style – with great enthusiasm.

So began a professional relationship and personal friendship.

    When I started working with Ken to train Jack, I finally found my niche.

I love training dogs!

In Loving Memory Of
