"Training opens the door to a lifetime of trust and communication between you and your dog." - Lisa Korf, CPDT-KA, IAABC-CDBC
Previously the Behavior & Training Manager at the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley in Colorado, Dr. Lisa Korf has many years of experience helping animals to find their forever families. She is passionate about teaching animals and their handlers how to work as a team to build communication and trust. Lisa applies advanced problem-solving skills to her passion in animal welfare, behavior and training. She has been active in the rescue community since 2004, devoting her time to rehabilitating and training rescue dogs, and educating volunteers, foster parents, and adopters.
The training classes she leads primarily utilize positive reinforcement to promote teamwork between handlers and dogs, with an emphasis on emotional connection. In addition to training, she has worked with behavioral issues including leash and barrier reactivity, separation anxiety, aggression, and resource guarding. Lisa is a certified trainer through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, as well as a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC) through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). She looks forward to helping to improve the canine-human relationships within Bartholomew and surrounding counties.
