Founder and certified trainer and behavior specialist, Lisa Colon Tudor started KissAble Canine, LLC in 2006 when she put her passion for dogs and her background in consulting and business operations together. Her training career started when she adopted a little terrier mix in which she was told, “whatever you do, don’t pick her up.” It was this dog that sparked an interest in behavior problems in dogs. From there she started training rescue dogs in foster care, where her interest in animal behavior and training grew. She actively works with area rescues and shelters. Lisa continues to advance her education by attending lectures and interning with animal behaviorists.
