About Alisa and You Silly Dog

Winner of Baltimore Magazine's Best of Baltimore 2013 for Best Dog Trainer


You Silly Dog uses compassionate, effective, pain and force-free training methods based on positive reinforcement. Alisa wants to help build trust and cooperation between you and your dog, therefore she does not advocate the use of choke, prong and shock collars, and aversive methods such as yelling and hitting. Alisa will teach you how to be proactive rather than reactive to your dog's behavior — to teach rather than correct your dog, to reward rather than punish, to guide and not force — to show your four-legged friend respect and meet them at their level.

Let Alisa show you how to use a gentler approach to train your dog!
