  • Loose Leash Walking – no more lunging and reacting!
  • Sitting or lying down politely – no more jumping up on people!
  • Staying on a “place” – no more rushing the door, or counter surfing when you aren’t looking!
  • Polite behavior – even when guests arrive!
  • Socially appropriate behavior around other dogs, or people, in public

Note: No amount of training or work sessions by a professional will supersede what you teach your dog in everyday life. For this reason, a dog’s behavior and conduct is a responsibility that ultimately rests with the owner.

Elisa is our go-to trainer for all things dog related. She helped us settle our rescue and fix his reactivity to dogs and males when we first got him. And when we got our new puppy, she was with us every step of the way with guidance and training sessions to help him become socialized to all environments and people and become a very well-behaved dog. We have used her for training and boarding and always know our dog is in the best hands. I highly recommend Raising K9 to all my friends, family, and all dog owners.

Elisa is wonderful and I cannot recommend her enough. She helped me with my bernese mountain dog puppy. She is an expert in her field and if you trust the process you will have a perfect dog on your hands when you're done. She is accommodating and gives you all of the options available, plus she knows so much! She truly knows the ins and outs of dogs and how to lead them and direct them towards success. Her pricing was fantastic based on my research and you really get personalized care and attention. She truly loves dogs and wants all dogs to succeed. My dog also had a ton of stomach issues and Elisa listened and cared as well and gave sound advice that paid off as my dogs GI issues have cleared up quickly when we really thought nothing would work. If you want a well behaved dog and are in need of guidance and expertise please connect with Elisa. She will get you all on track!

I have known Elisa for over a decade. Her dog training skills are excellent and she is always continuing her skills with training for herself. She not only trains the dogs but also educates their owners which helps create a great partnership and bond between owner and their dog.

I used Raising K-9 for training of both my dogs. Ms Elisa had my second dog from 10 weeks old. He went all the way through her program and he is a well behaved dog. My old boy needed some work and she undid all his bad habits. You can’t go wrong with choosing Raising K-9 for whatever training issues you have.

Elisa is a WONDERFUL dog trainer, for us and our family’s puppies.We have known Elisa for over 15 years. Elisa has trained 4 of our dogs. The 2 border collies and 2 bearded collies have not been easy dogs to train.The current pup-in-training is a young border collie girl, who is high energy, smart, and highly distracted by sights and sounds. Elisa is always quick to analyze training problems and make suggested training solutions that WORK!Best of all, Elisa is always friendly and kind when she’s training us humans to teach our canine companions!

We are so pleased with the results from our training with Elisa. Our puppy made such great strides in such a short period of time. Elisa was wonderful and answered all of our questions and helped us tremendously. She went above and beyond and you can tell she cares about you and your dog and having them be a great family member. We couldn’t be more grateful to her expertise.
