At the Center for Canine Excellence, we know the decision to acquire a dog is an important one. Our dogs are a very significant part of our family and we can’t imagine our lives without them. As much as we love our dog, there may be times when their behavior creates confusion and stress. If your dog is exhibiting behaviors that concern or frustrate you, you’ve come to the right place.

Whether you’re looking for guidance on selecting the right dog, assistance with raising your puppy, a plan to change your dog’s unwanted behavior, or training for your family or a group, Lisa Walker, CPDT-KA, CBATI, can help.

Together, let’s help your dog become the best it can be.

"Lisa quietly, patiently and compassionately drew me back again and again to the importance of my psychological stance with my anxious and challenging puppy. From suggestions about the effects of the smallest gesture or body language to the over-arching signals I was sending to Moxie, Lisa offered her extraordinary understanding of dogs and their people. She is well-trained, with great credentials. But what she brings, first and foremost, is an incredible gift of understanding and wisdom. She loves her work, and believes in both the dog and the owner." ~Meredith Hall, Cape Elizabeth
