Best trainer yet! Really cares about the kids.
Chewy and I have completed Good Citizen, Community Good Citizen, Agility and Therapy Dog classes with Lisa Morrissey! Lisa is the best! She reads dogs and helps their owners do what is best for them. She is a true professional who looks out for the safety and well being of both canine and human. Classes are well worth the money. Looking forward to the next class we take!! Thanks Lisa!!!! More...

They are good and best for any age dogs
Lisa is one of the best trainers. I highly reccommend her for all your doggie training needs. her techniques are spot on. Zoey did so good in training and were looking forward too joining more classes. ❤
My puppy Ridley and I are working with Lisa 1 on 1 before puppy training. We have both learned so much! Thank you Lisa
Hands down Lisa is an amazing trainer. I have issues with a male dog and after meeting with her and going over everything he’s has going on we’ve gotten to bottom of the problem and different ways to fix it. All of this was in just an hour of speaking with her today. More...
Like most pet owners, we look to the reviews to help us make an educated decision about businesses. These reviews help us to hopefully guide us in the right direction to make the right choices. Several years ago we moved to the area. Our springer was a year old and needed training for socialization and behavior. We found a trainer( with 5 star reviews) in the local area, met with her and felt confident that we had done the right thing for our fur baby. She was not licensed or certified, but surely all these people who put in reviews felt she was a great trainer. Like most dog owners, we knew nothing about professional dog training, so we felt good about our decision. We used this trainer for about 9 months. When we picked up our baby, he was exhausted from playing and walking. We thought that the exercise was great for him and he loved other dogs. We started to worry just a bit as he was not listening as well to us as he did before and he couldn't settle into his routine at home. All he wanted to do was sleep when he got home. We thought maybe it was something we were doing wrong. As the months passed, we decided to get another springer. Our little girl was just a puppy. We decided to start young with her training, so off to the same trainer we go. After several weeks of the so called training, when we picked her up she was so exhausted, she would fall asleep in her food bowl and not enough energy to jump on the couch. We took her to the vet because we thought something was wrong. The vet said puppies need down time to rest so they can grow. Running her all day with no routine is not a good thing. You need to stop. So..running the dogs into exhaustion is not training!! Driving them all over Pasco County in a vehicle is not training! As we looked closer at her web site, we noticed some of the dogs she was training, had on shock collars. Our bad. Why didn't we notice this before? Our new quest was to find a REAL trainer that is licensed and certified. That's when we found LIsa's web site. We set up an in home appointment. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! She is amazing!! Her knowledge, her body movement and even her eye contact with our younger springer (who is leery of people), licked her hand and let her have a petting session. You knew immediately, that she knows her stuff. She was telling us info about dogs we never knew. Folks, if you want a doggie sitter, they are a dime a dozen. If you want a true professional who is trained and will make a difference in your fur babies life, call Lisa!! More...
Lisa is very professional, she offers a wide variety of classes, she also takes her classes out into the real world so you and your pet can experience training with real life distractions. very satisfied with every class I have taken. More...

Lisa has worked with 2 of my dogs and I highly recommend her! She is so very patient and an awesome trainer and also good with behavioral problems!
Highly recommend Lisa, she helped me to understand why my dog was leash reactive and helped me correct the problem, she also taught my dog to use my treadmill which is fabulous when I get home from a long day of work and am too tired to walk Bella.
Lisa helped Hobie Dog with basic obedience, and did awesome. She was patient with him and had results during first session. Lisa gave us exercises, homework and suggested products that would work for us. We are very happy we got to work with Lisa, and the results we super! More...

We love Lisa and Trick Dog U. I recently took the Parkour class and had a really great time bonding with my dog while he gained confidence tackling the outdoor obstacles. It was such a fun class!! I can't wait until fall to resume outdoor classes again. More...
When we decided it was time to finalize Jett's training for Service Animal, Ann Ross told us to go talk with Lisa. After an unreal evaluation, Lisa said to actively train him with a new vest and be ready in a couple weeks. Yesterday was his public eval, and he did great.
Although the weather was not all that great, she met us at Sims Park for a boisterous Caribbean event. We got a lot of speed walking in too! More...
Lisa worked with me and my pup, showed us that we really COULD get over 'leash reactivity' and even got Buddy to walk on a BALANCE BEAM, something I would never have even thought of trying! She was the catalyst to get me going with teaching Buddy numerous tricks which I had never done with any dog before. Thanks to her guidance, I have a wonderful, fun loving pup (who just happens to look like Dali's twin!) One look at all the things she's taught her dogs and you realize just how great she is with these wonderful creatures! More...
Trick Dog U was recommended by my veterinarian when I got Dylan, my 10 week old puppy. The obedience training we receive is excellent & enabled Dylan to get his AKC Canine Good Citizen Title certificate when he was
7 months old. We regularly attend the monthly Barn Hunts which are fun for everyone. The classes are small & personalized, Dylan & I have made new friends during our visits to the academy. More...

Lisa has helped me tremendously with my "triggered" pitbull.. He was a resident at the Pasco county animal shelter for some time and made the euth list, but he's home now safe and happy.. He has alot of fears and anxiety and Lisa knew exactly what to do to help me help my Cole aka Swiss.. she definitely knows what she is doing and I can't thank her enough for the tools she's given me.. I'm hoping to rehabilitate him enough to be my service dog .. He's my little angel and I'm so grateful he chose me... Thanks Lisa.... More...

Found Trick Dog U, K9 Academy when looking for basic obedience training for my then 6 month old puppy. We took the class and I was hooked, I love the method of training no force everything is positive making the class fun. Both handler and dog are important, and Lisa makes sure both are comfortable with the training. If a dog doesn’t take to a certain method of training Lisa will work on an alternative method that brings the desired results she doesn’t give up. I currently have 2 young dogs taking classes at Trick Dog U, 1 has been taking classes for the past 7 months, has earned his CGCA, Novice Trick Dog certificate and is currently taking Novice Dog Parkour. My other dog is currently getting ready to test for her CGC. I can’t possibility say enough, the programs offered promote positive training and bonding with your dog. Lisa is awesome seeing what she has accomplished with her own furkids says it all …. No Dog left behind! More...
Lisa and her team are amazing. I recently got a Scottish Terrier puppy. She was just 3 months old when we started and we have completed our first puppy training class. Trick Dog (aka Lisa and her team ) gave me a lot of helpful tools in training Piper. Piper was even excited to go to classes. I know that Piper is just 4 months old but we are both looking forward to the multiple learning tools and adventures with Lisa and Trick Dog team. Thank you all so very much! Can't wait to start the next level of behavior training with you girls!! See you soon. More...
I met Lisa when I needed help working my reactive dog through a hard move to a new environment. She was reactive to other dogs within our neighborhood and generally very anxious and worried in our new neighborhood. We learned management skills for her behaviors and methods of modification to help her improve behaviorally. We've had the opportunity to boost our girl's confidence with trick training and freestyle and I continue to keep her in classes (even though group classes seemed unattainable at one time for my reactive pup) and we always have an outlet for her to continue learning and working. We've even been able to get her Canine Good Citizen certification which precious she had been unable to accomplish. More...
I have been working with Lisa for the last couple of weeks with my two dogs, Cassie (lab mix) and Chloe (pitbull and boxer mix) on basic obedience/manners and I have already noticed a big difference in both of their behavior! My dog, Cassie is only a year old and still very much a puppy and I recently adopted Chloe with PCAS several months ago. Although Chloe was very tolerant of Cassie's constant roughhousing, I wanted to nip it in the bud before it became an issue and Lisa has given me a lot of great tools to teach Cassie (and Chloe too!) better manners. My girls enjoy their classes too and are eager to learn. I would absolutely recommend Lisa if you are looking to get some extra help with your newly rescued pet � More...
" Trick Dog U K9 " have an amazing team of instructors. I have been working with them for several weeks and the difference in my dog is beyond my expectations could have imagined.If I could rate them higher I would. They put the needs of your pet first. The dog I have adopted was a dog too afraid of people for adoption. I am so happy Riley Bear found me because he is amazing.The unconditional love and trust he has for both Trick Dog U K9 and myself is truly a gift . I cant thank them enough for being a part of Riley Bears journey. If you are in need of any help with your pet this is the only place to go. More...
I worked with another trainer previously who wasn't certified for my dog to get her Good Canine Citizen certification. My ultimate goal is for my dog to become a Therapy Dog. The other trainer passed my dog yet she still had issues with seperation anxiety and over excitement.
I found Lisa and went for my free evaluation on my dog. Immediately Lisa was able to spot some of the issues with my dog. After talking with her, I signed up for a private session. I saw results with my dog right away. We did one more private session at my request. After that my dog and I joined one of Lisa's Trick classes to help build my dog's confidence.
We have only been working with Lisa for a short time and there is a big difference in my dog. We have my dog doing things I never thought possible(going on a wobble board, going up & down on the tumble board, pushing carts, etc).
It is such a pleasure to work with someone who actually knows what they are doing. I get my questions answered with knowledge and experience, not just a guess or an "I don't know" like the other trainer did.
Lisa is able to read my dog's actions and reactions and tell me how to counter act them. She can explain cause, effect and resolution to my dog's behaviors. Why the dog does it, what it means and how to correct or handle it.
Anytime I've contacted Lisa, she responds back. Even during Thanksgiving Holiday and I was experiencing issues with my dog while camping with the family. She took the time out from her holiday to help me through it.
I highly recommend Lisa and Trick U Dog K9 Academy. You won't be disappointed. In just the few short weeks, it has helped my dog and me make big strides towards our goal of becoming Therapy Dog certified.
Not only is Lisa certified, she maintains her certifications by taking continuing education courses to keep up on the latest techniques and animal behavioral studies. More...
I have worked with other good dog trainers in the past. But Lisa has some of the best techniques I’ve ever seen. She is so in tune with the dogs that she picks up on what’s going to happen before it happens. Amazing, talented dog trainer. Would highly recommend her to everyone. More...
Lisa has helped us with our dog Ember so much! I would recommend her to anyone who may be having an issue with their dog’s behavior or doing training classes for the fun of it!

Khloe is doing very well and we are learning also.

Lisa is amazing. People tell me all the time how well behaved my dog is.
Love Trick Dog U, they helped my Bella over come her leash reactivity and helped me understand what was going on and how to change Bella's mind about things in the environment she was scared of :)
Very knowledgeable staff, like that their trainer are Certified!

Lisa is phenomenal. She literally saved my dogs life. We purchased a bull terrier pup who ended up having aggression issues that we couldn't control when he turned about 5 months old. We started in private lessons to learn how to train and handle him and he did make some good strides. She also advised us what to talk to the vet about and possible RX suggestions which we immediately requested. I should also mention that our vet had said there wasn't much we could do and that we should put him down. For us this wasn't something we could do to a puppy so we worked through it with Lisa and the RX's and he's now a little over 1, we have completed a training class and he's completely turned around. He's a family member we could never be without. Thank you, Lisa!!!!!! More...
