Lisa Pattison has provided instruction at Hope Wind Farm, CaninePartnership.com, Canine Water and Outdoor Adventure as well as at workshops for tracking training and Canine Water Sports. Lisa coaches the handlers of performance dogs, rescue dogs in addition to those training older dogs. Currently teaching dog training at CaninePartnership.com . Additionally, we teach Clicker training (with or without a clicker) provides quick easy feedback to the dog & it is fun for the trainer too. The quicker the dog understands what is rewarding him, the quicker he is to listen. Lisa gives students a dog friendly method to develop their canine partner. When handlers understand why the dog does what he does , then the communication can truly begin. This proven method ensures the dog enjoys learning how to behave while simultaneously creating a deeper rapport with his owner.
