Lisa Rasmussen CPDT-KA| Owner & Trainer

about-trainerLisa is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT KA) located in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Her interest in animal behaviour originated while she was completing her undergraduate studies in biology and physical anthropology at the University of Winnipeg. Lisa has been working with animals for over 10 years now, however her interest in dog training evolved when she entered the world of dog rescue. When Lisa first started with The Manitoba Mutts Dog rescue in 2011, she witnessed a wide array of behavioural issues such as separation anxiety, aggression and fear. Determined to understand and help these animals, Lisa made a career move and set out to become a dog trainer.

In addition to dog training, Lisa loves spending time with her family, reading, running, being outdoors, and travelling. Lisa also has a partner Robin, two small human children, as well as three dogs; Bentley (Doberman Pinscher), Lola (Rescue Mutt), and Jilly Beans (Mini Schnauzer).
