What people say about us
I can't say enough positive words about our experience with Lisa. She is training us (the humans) how to be better, smarter dog owners and gives great insight on what our animals are thinking. We do virtual facetime training and it is a wonderful use of time and resources. Her homework is attainable, her patience is immeasurable and our dogs' behavior have improved by leaps and bounds in a short amount of time. Big thank yous from our ohana to yours!
Lisa has created a safe, supportive, loving environment for learning. She has a wealth of experience in the language of dogs and has developed a program to support even the most experienced dog owner. As a first time puppy mom I found her in-home visit before even getting my puppy invaluable. I would highly recommend her private consultations and group classes to anyone looking for support. She will set you up for success in helping you to have the kind of well mannered, well behaved dog that is a pleasure to be around. Thank you Lisa and staff! I can't wait till life gets back to normal so we can continue on with group classes. In the meantime I would not hesitate to do another virtual session if we hit a snag. MAHALO! Keep up the good work and stay healthy and safe.
Lisa helped us get started on training for our 9 month old pit/terrier puppy via Facetime. The session was SO helpful for us, especially being quarantined we really needed constructive things to do with our puppy as well as a positive approach to interacting with her and her puppy behavior. We live far away but will continue to do Facetime sessions as long as the corona virus keeps us inside! Thanks so much!

I can't recommend Happy Dogs Maui and Ohana Pet Training enough. 10 out of 5 Stars for both! Very affordable too, especially considering the level of care and attention we received. It only took a few private lessons with Kristen to see remarkable results. Not only is our dog, Miles, better trained and more obedient, but I can feel a dramatic change in our relationship. Before training, he was a good friend; the lovable "guy on the couch," but after training under Kristen's attentive supervision, it's plain to see that we've truly bonded. I feel like I now know how our early ancestors must have felt; when humans and dogs relied upon one another not just for companionship, but for our survival. Thank you Kristen, and thank you Lisa, for giving Miles your vote of confidence, stamp of approval, and help in elevating him to Service-Dog status.
Lisa and Jeff are really gifted working with animals. You can confidently trust the care your pets will receive and they will be in paradise!! I would rate their work with FIVE stars!
Lisa Giesick is fantastic. No matter what your training needs may be.
Lisa is an amazing dog trainer. We've had 2 private lessons with her (and now the first 2 lessons of her group classes), for our high-energy 10 month old puppy who came to us with no training at all, and these lessons made a HUGE difference for us. It gave us hope, as well as the knowledge of how to communicate better with our dog. It helped us learn how to show her what we expect of her, and all 3 of our lives are better!
I feel so lucky to have Lisa and Kristin help Aka and I! A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders to have knowledgable professional trainers guiding me through the tough teen years! Ohana Pet Training helps your dog to be the most successful dog he/she can be :) <3 Mahalos!
Lisa & her lessons are amazing!!! Work with Lisa & you'll become a great trainer with a great dog, all while having a great time!!! Thanks for being such a fabulous teacher, Lisa!!!!
Lisa is an incredible teacher, guardian and resource of all things dogs. She teaches in a way that is not patronizing nor judgmental and makes it fun and non judgmental for those of us trying so hard to understand!
For nearly 10 years now Lisa and Jeff have welcomed our animals into their Ohana . Bodhi is currently on the roster and his more excited about staying with Ohana pets than he is about anything else we never worry when he is there
Lisa & Jeff are amazing people with a passion for our pets as well as their own. They treat my baby like she was their own and we are blessed to have them look after our Dottie without worry, I know she's in good hands.. I recommend anyone that has a busy schedule to call them up for play day.. Mahalo Lisa & Jeff!!
