The most common call I get is “my dog won’t listen to me.” My most common answer is, “they can hear you, they just don’t understand you.” Dogs don’t have language skills and learn to tune out our constant background sound we make. So, how do we get dogs to listen to us?

Note from Lisa

Dear friends and students! I am redoing the Nosy Puppers curriculum and structure. The first class will be a required class for all participants in my program. Once completed, you will be able to take any module you like. They will be classified into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, but with the training in the How to Speak Dog class, you can choose any of them. The modules will be 3-4 weeks long and will provide a small class with more in depth study (and sucess) on each topic. Here are the modules: Basic Obedience, Loose Leash Walking, Leave It/Drop It, Come!, Heeling, Stay, Environmental Cues, Tricks One and Two, Relax, AKC S.T.A.R. Review and Test, and CGC/Therapy Dog.

My website is under construction, so all this will be revealed in a creative way soon!

Private Lessons

At my location in Fairfield: $150/lesson, package of 6 is $800 (saves $100 off the total of individual lessons).

At your home, within 20 minutes of my location: $225/lesson. Package of 6 is $1200 (saves $150 off the total price of the individual lessons).

Lessons are 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the dog.

Prong Collar Lesson

$150/lesson, only for my students. Must have completed How to Speak Dog and Loose Leash Walking, and have a dog that is mature enough to use one.

Make-Up Lessons for Group Classes

No more makeup lessons will be offered, but for a small membership fee, a video library of the classes in the course will be available for review.


Payments are accepted through Venmo or Zelle under my name: Lisa Marsnik, and my phone: 412-735-5594. Payments through Venmo should be the payment between friends option, not the business option. Before paying for a class be sure to text or call Lisa and confirm availability.

***Classes are non-refundable. All classes are paid reservations for a time slot. The time must be reserved in advance and once reserved, it cannot be given to anyone else. When you purchase a group class you take up a spot that cannot be resold once the class begins.
