My name is Lisa Rydell, and I am an ABC Certified Dog Trainer and a professional pet sitter. I have had a genuine love of animals and a desire to help pets enjoy a happy, safe, and healthy life for as long as I can remember. I also enjoy working with the people that love them, to insure that their pets will be well cared for and receive much TLC. I feel very fortunate that I was raised with pets being an important part of my family’s daily life, and I have continued to adopt and take care of dogs and cats to this day.
Having enjoyed working as a Professional Artist for 20 years, I wanted to learn more about the care and training of dogs and have the opportunity to spend time with them everyday so I returned to school to receive a Dog Training Certificate at the Animal Behavior College. My training methods are based on positive reinforcement and gentle interaction.
I am an Alumni of the Animal Behavior College, and also a member of Professional United Pet Sitters Association. When I’m not taking care of animals, I really enjoy doing portraits of people’s pets! If you would like me to do one of yours please contact me for more information.
