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,
which both you and your dog will enjoy.
Alisa does not permit or advocate the use of choke collars, prong collars or shock collars, or aversive methods such as yelling or hitting. Alisa will show you how to use a gentler approach to train your dog!
