Lake Cumberland K-9 Training Center has been delivering results since we opened in 1998. Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers and their dogs.

Alisa is a certified professional dog trainer. Alisa is also an authorized mentor trainer for ABC (Animal Behavior College). She enjoys mentoring others and teaching anything that her years of experience can offer. She loves teaching and guiding her clients to a better understanding of their dogs and how they think. She had a special education teacher tell her, “You honestly made me a better teacher!”.

She has a natural ability of communication with both dogs and their owners.
