Welcome to Canine Partnership Dog Training!

Canine Partnership's goal is to create a positive and fun-filled relationship between you and your dog.  We use positive motivation such as clicker training and other force free-methods to build a strong partnership based on trust, joy and effective communication.


We offer 5 coaching methods to meet the needs of all of our clients:  private in-person, private live online, combination of live online and in-person, group in-person (4 dog maximum class size), and customized special skills packages. 


The main focus of our class offerings is on versatility skills such as Nose Work, as opposed to puppy classes and basic obedience.  If your dog needs foundational training to perform at the higher skill levels that we offer, we can create a custom package to meet your needs.    

Expert trainer Lisa Pattison has made positive dog training her life’s commitment and has studied extensively with some of the best dog trainers in the world over the last 30 years.  Click Here>> to learn more about Lisa's deep expertise and experience level.  


Whether you’re interested in dog competition, or want to built a close partnership with your dog while challenging him, enriching his life, or helping him become all he can be... Canine Partnership is the place for you.
