“We love Kissable Canine. We started going when Bouba was 2 months old for puppy social. It’s free and a great way to get your puppy socialized with others dogs. We loved how the play was still structured with the trainer observing and providing guidance and tips. It really teaches owners how to be responsible dog owners.”bouba
Sarah C, Bouba
“Our story began with a 1:00 a.m. return home with two Great Danes, bonded siblings from a West Virginia farm, and foreigners to collars, leashes, hardwood floors and stairs. And afraid of just about everything. They both became AKC Canine Good Citizens- which never would have happened without the expertise and guidance from KissAble Canine- and lived happily ever after. Thank you Lisa !!!!”danny-ripley

“Thanks to a combination of both excesslt group puppy classes and individualized instruction at home, we have a dog who is well-behaved and lots of fun. Having owned and loved previous dogs, we began taking classes with KissAble Canine and the talented Lisa Tudor because there is always something new and helpful to learn about animal behaviors. We will continue to participate in instruction and activities because we are all enjoying the experience so much!”riley

“Thank you so much for coming out. I feel really confident now that if we just continue working on training that we can get through this. Things are better already.”gryffin
