“I own an Veterinary Hospital and have been referring my patients to Kissable Canines when they have behavior issues. I have gotten nothing but positive feedback from my clients. Lisa recently came to my practice and gave some training ‘tips’ to my staff. I would highly recommend Lisa and Kissable Canines for your dog’s training needs.”
Dr. Hudson, Owner Colonial Animal Hospital


Founder and certified trainer and behavior specialist, Lisa Tudor started KissAble Canine, LLC in 2006 when she put her passion for dogs and her background in consulting and business operations together. Her training career started when she adopted a little terrier mix in which she was told, “whatever you do, don’t pick her up.” It was this dog that sparked an interest in behavior problems in dogs. From there she started training rescue dogs in foster care, where her interest in animal behavior and training grew. She actively works with area rescues and shelters. Lisa continues to advance her education by attending lectures and interning with animal behaviorists.
