The only place I would bring my Rottweiler’s. Experienced, caring and professional. I love that they behavior test each dog before allowing them to join open play. Open play and sleepovers are always supervised. I wish they were closer, I drive an hour to LOPCI, it’s worth the trip!
I cannot tell you enough how amazing it is to have a place for Daisie to play with friends. I work full time and knowing she is having fun while I am at work gives me such piece of mind. The staff is always kind, caring and they treat Miss Daisie Mar like the little Princess she is! With out Leader of The Pack my baby girl would be couped up all day until I get home from work. Thank you for giving her a place to feel safe, happy and loved
We brought our 3 year old rescue German Shepherd/Husky mix Layla to Adult 1 training. What an excellent class! Lisa was super professional, knowledgeable and a wonderful teacher, and the other trainers were great too. We’ve done several different training classes in the area with other dogs and this was BY FAR the best. Very enjoyable for us and for our dog – she is definitely a happier dog now. Would recommend strongly to anyone.
My Husband has named our dog “Stench” but whatever magic your groomer did on Tuesday he is still smelling freshly washed, which is a miracle!

Yesterday, our golden doodle, Roxy, graduated from your Adult training class, and a few months before that, graduated from your Puppy Kindergarten class. That is by far, the best money we have ever spent. The knowledge & understanding you have of these dogs is just unbelievable. All the tools you suggested we use on Roxy have worked 100%. She is such a good girl, thanks to you. My children & grandchildren are so impressed with her behavior.
My husband and I would like to personally thank you for all your help & solutions, as you have always taken the time to work with us on any problems or issues we encountered with Roxy.
We will continue to use your facility for any overnight stays that we will be needing or any Saturday or Sunday Doggie Daycare needs we may have.
Again Lisa, we are very grateful to you & your staff, and can’t thank you all enough for making us “happy parents”.
P.S. – We always refer to you as “The Dog Whisperer”.
ROXIE GETS IT….I brag to everyone how my dog Roxie can be loose around our property whenever we are outside and she stays around us and does not run off to do her own thing. Thank you, to the trainers at LOPCI for teaching me the tools to use and directing me and Roxie with the proper training to have a responsive pet. With your guidence we are both better adjusted and happy. I went into training because I wanted Roxie to be able to be outside when we are and to stay on our property. After graduating from class we continued with what we learned and Roxie just seems to understand she can wander on the grounds but not too far. She is now happy to follow me around as I cut grass or lay in the shade and watch. She will not run into the street to greet people and will watch but leave alone the wildlife. What a pleasure it is to look and see her always within about 50′ from me or my wife. The information learned from the staff of LOPCI during the training class has proven to be be life changing to both our family and Roxie. She has now has a quality of life that we hoped to provide for her. With sincere gratitude to the staff at LOPCI in your caring and loving attitude towards dogs and the success story you have accomplished with Roxie.
I rescued my precious little 2 year old yorkie mix in February. The poor thing was a mess. She didn’t know ANY basic commands, she was afraid of the grass in my backyard and I couldn’t leave a room without her crying. Thanks to the knowledge I’ve gained from LOPCI and the confidence Muffin gained through training and doggie day care, I have an amazing, balanced, loving, well mannered happy dog (and I’m a happy owner). I have three dogs and she started out as my most challenging and has ended up to be the most balanced. I am now looking into bringing my youngest for training because LOPCI provides results. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them. Their knowledge and patience are beyond compare. I would have never been able to handle all three dogs without them. So i want to thank Lisa and her staff for my happy, balanced, and confident girl. I couldn’t imagine our family without our little Muffin and thanks to Leader of the Pack I won’t have to.
I took our Wheaten “Maggie” for adult obedience training to Leader of the Pack, and the training was A+… Both Maggie and I were trained to understand each other and for me to always “Leader of th Pack” I feel that with continued practice, the tools we learned will be part of our happy lives together.I look forward to future interaction with this outstanding facility. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful training center, day care and source of great doggie treats, food and toys. Thank you very much-Lisa,John and Jason Sincerly, Jane McManus and Maggie
This weekend was a true testament to the outstanding training Bailey and I received at LOPCI! I was so nervous about returning to class after experiencing a death in our family and missing week five. Thank you, Lisa, for your encouragement! Bailey, my other dog and my husband and I were in Maryland at the Marina we frequent. When Bailey jumped off our boat and sped down the dock, I crouched down, flailed my arms and used my sweetest, “boop, boop, boop” voice, resulting in her immediate return! She was so well behaved in her cute life jacket. I can’t wait to bring her back for adult basic. By the way… The “leave it command” has worked many times with her!!! Saving us time and time again! Thank you for your positive approach to working with canines and especially, being patient and compassionate with their human companions!!! All the best! Jen Weinstein
Let me start with how grateful I am to you Mr. & Mrs. McDonald. Your heart felt caring and knowledge of dogs amazed me. I reached out to you for help in rescuing a dog, not a cute little fluffy or jumpy terrier but a big working breed. As everyone knows puppies find homes fast but those that are a year and over are hard to find homes that will take them and I wanted to save one of these dogs. I adopted one who didn’t get the proper training or socialization skills while they were cute puppies. He had a dominant behavior to overcome along with a few issues you recognized right away and I thank you for that. We then adopted a female boxer who was the opposite. She was timid and afraid of everything. By the time puppy class finished she was a confident obedient Boxer who I was proud to walk on the streets. With the information you shared openly I felt confident we could adopt another male to keep her company and play boxer style with. Now as I watch them play I watch for signs of dominance that may upset my pack. Thanks from my boxer and me for the life time of friendship we will share. Thank you Tim Stevenson
