Lisa Maldonado
Canine Pool Training Specialist / Owner
Hi! My name is Lisa and I am The Canine Pool Trainer Specialist and the Owner of Arizona Pool Dogs. I am a certified professional dog trainer and I have received my credentials through Animal Behavior College, of which I am a mentor for the college as well. I have furthered my dog training education through ABC and I also have a certification in Training Shelter Dogs. I am Canine CPR and First Aid certified through the Red Cross and I am also a Certified Reiki Master.
I LOVE the water and I started training my 3 Rottweilers 11 years ago in my pool to swim, be safe, retrieve, and to just love the water. Today, swimming keeps my one senior Rott and puppy in shape along with providing them with an energy outlet. I have sinced trained my visually impaired Pug, and my small dogs to swim as well. I LOVE training dogs and I absolutely LOVE training dog in the water! I truly enjoy witnessing a dogs progress in the water and also their genuine love of the water. I am very excited for this will be Arizona Pool Dogs 6th year to provide many, many, many dogs with pool safety and exercise training!      

I am a Canine Behavior Specialist and I provide In-Home Obedience and Behavioral Training as well. I not only train dogs in the water, but also on land! I train dogs to be therapy dogs for Pet Partners as well.
My true gift and what I enjoy the most is training dogs in their pools! I  believe I am one of the few residents here in Arizona that live for our summer months because I get to spend many endless hours a day in many pools training many dogs to be pool savvy and to enjoy the water!
