About Lise

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome!

We are Lise and Miley, owners/head trainers at Funtastic K9 Training.

Our expertise comes from volunteering and fostering with Minnesota Pitbull Rescue as well as training dog with severe problems everyday. Mailee and I use the tools and energy level that works best for your dog. We love working with "dog to dog" aggressive dogs or human aggressive dogs. They are welcome at Funtastic K9. We are HUGE advocate of pitbulls and we utilize the techniques that works for each and every dog.


Indie and Cubbie agree with us that "SLOW INTRO IS THE WAY TO GO". It makes all the dogs feel more at ease and it also helps our dogs in boarding to get more comfortable in their new environment.

We are HONEST, FAIR and CONSISTENT here and we can't wait to care and love for your dog(s)!

While you are away we will send you pictures/videos updates so that you can see how your furry friend is doing or you can follow us on Periscope live @funtastick9training and see us show our work with your dog in real time or find us on Facebook under Funtastic K9 training as we share live webcast there also.


****For boarding, you must make reservations by the CALENDAR DAY, you will have to reserve for the day of drop off and the day of pick up.***

We do get booked up really fast, so get your dog(s) in with us as soon as possible!

Top notch professionals. I'll book with them again.
Lise was great and super flexible with our kind of crazy schedule. She sent us videos and pictures throughout Barton's entire stay, which was awesome to get.
Lise and Mailee “Thank you” for your private training session! I can now take my husky for a walk by myself. Lise and Mailee are knowledgeable, down to earth and trained our three month old stubborn husky. This was a great experience and the family learned so much from this training session. We look forward to boarding with Lise in the near future.

Caesar Milan who?? If there was ever a person who loved dogs the way they NEED and deserved to be loved, Lise is that one. She is such a strong pack leader and her passion for dogs is evident through how she handles them. Lise cares for the dogs well beyond their stay with her and offers so much knowledge that you'd normally have to pay for by the hour! I'm so appreciative that there are individuals like Lise and Mailee who are not only genuine in how they care for dogs, but invest their own time and energy in making sure the dog is getting all he needs to be well balanced. Lise and Mailee really cater their care to the specific dog's individual needs...who does that?! Only the best! For all that Lise and Mailee offer in their stay, their price is a steal! A fair charge would be closer to $500 a night!

Tank is a trouble dog, and you don't know what a bad dog is until you've met Tank! When no was willing to put up with him and care for him, Lise stepped up. Not only did she step up and willingly dedicate herself to him, she was able to give my husband and I a glimmer of what our dog could potentially be! Lise also offered tips and "homework" that we'd be able to use to progress Tank's behavioral training to get him to be at his best! My admiration for Lise and Mailee's philanthropic approach to dog care is more than I can explain. I could sit here and write a whole novel, but alas I'm coming to the maximum word count. BOOK LISE, YOU WILL REGRET YOU DIDN'T!!

Lise is super knowledgeable when it comes to dogs! We boarded Benji & Sophie with Lise and Mailee and we couldn't be happier! I'm usually the worry freak mom whenever I leave my dogs behind however this time was definitely different. I was at ease and was able to go on the trip without worrying and wondering how my dogs were. Lise was awesome at updating me daily by texting me pictures and videos of them and what they were doing. Another awesome thing that Lise does also is not only board my dogs but also took the time to train and work with Benji in regards to leash pulling. I would definitely recommend Lise if you ever need anyone to watch your fur babies. We will definitely return in the near future!

Another great stay with Lise and Mailee! Skye came back so well mannered and in such a great mood! I was so impressed with the progress made in such a short amount of time with Lise and Mailee - my non-social dog was able to go on a pack walk with 3 other dogs and hang out with the other dogs with no issues! These ladies continue to amaze me every time - looking forward to our future booking (I'm sure Skye is too) in August!

Lise and Mailee were able to take Samson in on short notice and were very accommodating. They provided everything Samson needed along with great care my dog needed. Lise and Mailee knew right away all the traits and behavior of Samson! They gave him training sessions to calm his anxiety and separation away from home. Their dogs were very welcoming even with Samson's aggressive behavior towards unknown pets and environments. I highly recommend Lise to anyone who is looking for dog training or needs a dog sitter! Thank you for all your help and lessons this weekend!

Tiger's one on one with Lise and Mailee went very well. They came over to our place to do the training. Tiger was so well behaved in front of them that they didn't even know what to do with him! It was pretty funny to see. In any case, we were able to successfully work on duration, greeting guests at the door with the doorbell going off and eliminating as much distraction as we could while he was on the leash. At the end of the session, Tiger even got to have a little play time with Indee which was totally fun to watch! Thank you Lise and Mailee for your expertise and help. We have continued to practice his duration and leash re-activity that by the time we board with you again next month, we hope to give you a better dog than last time! That's our goal anyways!

We are returning customers loyal customers and once again, these two never fail me. Hero spent the weekend with Lise and Mailee and during his stay, they sent me pictures and videos to keep me posted about Hero's progress. He continues to practice loose leash training and basic commands (my dog is stubborn but loveable, lol) as well as duration work to make him stay in place. I picked him up yesterday and immediately started practicing duration and he was a CHANGED dog! "Are we talking about the same Hero, here?!". He usually doesn't stay in one place for too long but I got him to sit still for 8/10 minutes. That's immediate results that I could not have done alone without your assistance. Thank you so much again Lise and Mailee. We will certainly come back to "Wisconsin" for our boarding and training needs with Hero!

Lise and Mailee took great care of Skippy. He relaxed and fit right into the family. Lise sent photos and a couple of videos throughout the weekend, which we appreciated. One of the videos showed the training she had done with Skippy in a short time, having him sit and wait to eat his food on command! We thank you for your wonderful doggy care, Lise, and will definitely board Skippy with you again when the need arises!

Thank you Lise for everything that you have taught us. Our training session went very well. Buddy is definitely a different dog and I can finally say that I am enjoying my walk with him more now, no more pulling. He is progressing more and more on his walk training and the recall. We are keeping up with what you taught us. Thank you again for the tips. This really was a great experience for us and Buddy. We will be using your services again for sure. I highly recommend Lise. Two thumbs up!!!!!

We decided to go with Lise again when we went on our 5 day boundary waters camping trip. It was the longest time that Cass had ever been away from home, but I didn't worry at all because I knew Lise would do great with her. (And I wasn't wrong!) I really appreciated that even though I couldn't get pics and updates from Lise up north, she sent them anyway so I could see when I got back. I absolutely love seeing that Cass is treated like one of the family! Definitely will be using you guys from here on!

I decided and felt comfortable leaving my dog, Chanel, with Lise and Mailee after reading the many positive reviews of others boarding and training experiences. There is no doubt in my mind that we chose the perfect trainers/sitters while away! The process was easy, they were very flexible, and made it as stress free as possible when dropping Chanel off for the weekend. I will be using their services again and rate them a five-star all the way! You can't go wrong choosing this duos services and training!

My sister and I had an one on one session with Lise and Miley. They were very informative and reassured us that our dog was going to be a great dog with continuous training.

They gave us great tips to help correct our puppy's behavior and they also taught us how to be better pack leaders to our puppy. They were very patient with us too because we had so many questions as we are first time dog owners.

They also offered future guidance which is nice to know that they are a source of support we can depend on. I highly recommend Lise and Miley for any help with your pup. Even though I have never had a chance to have my pup board with them, I trust they will do a great job of taking care of my cutie.

Lise and Mailee was AMAZING!!! They were pvery open to getting to know my puppy and training her. They know their stuff well. My puppy was 12 weeks old and already showed improvement with her pulling and walks. They had lots of great advices and werent afraid to tell me it wasnt my puppy, and that I was crazy lol. It made me realize that its the owner that the puppy/dog/pet reflects. They video me walking my pup before and after, showed me what i was doing wrong and even reinacted my tense arm and shoulders. They were great to work with. I woul recommed them to anyone and everyone. I will definitely be booking more sessions since my lazy girl didnt want to work for treats. Lol. Thanks i had a lot of fun!

This was the best decision I've ever made for my dog! We boarded Skye with Lise because we needed a good home for her to stay at while we were away, but what came packaged with the boarding was amazing - dog training! You can say my dog was a bit crazy and had way too much energy when I dropped her off - 3 days later and I end up taking home a new and improved dog! In the short amount of time that Lise had my dog - she was able to train her to walk side by side (no more dragging!) - which I was never able to do before, have her sit on my command and so much more!! I will definitely be going back to Lise for follow up sessions and future boarding needs!

Lise and Mailee are awesome! They took great care of our dogs Koda and Mini and sent updates everyday! We had a couple behavioral issues that we wanted Lise to look into and she was able to give us a few pointers. Overall she reported back that Mini and Koda were very well behaved! Thanks so much! We will definitely be boarding with them again in the future!

This has been the best dog boarding experience I have had with anyone or any place and I believe it's because I finally found someone who understands what I was looking for and went above and beyond to help provide an outstanding service for my dog. Lise provided photos and training videos throughout my dog's stay with them and even provided very helpful tips and advice on what to do afterwards. I was stuck wondering what or how can I improve my dog's state of mind and overall quality of life and thanks to Lise, now I know what I need to work on next. For that, I am most grateful. I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you Lise and thank you for the unexpected surprise gift. The leash is perfect! I am already using it everywhere that I go with Tiger! :)

Lise & Mailee are AWESOME! My dog is an over protective, scared aggressive type. Even Petsmart wouldnt take my furbaby in. Found lise and Mailee on FB and they guided me with fees and etc. We did a meet and greet at the Brooklyn Park dog park, They picked up straight away what Woddle needed help with. Thats when I booked Lise for Boarding. Lise helped him for the 5 days there. They kept me updated with pictures and text messages along with FB throughout the stay. I got to see a video of him finally touching base with Lises residential dogs. Lises residential dogs Indie & Cubbie are great too! They are very well behaved and are top notch. When picking Woddle up they touched base with me on what Woddle needed help on and what should be worked on first. Awesome gals! its a home away from home. Definitely will be re booking for boarding and training with these gals again!

Lise is the best, my dogs really enjoyed their stay at Lise's house. Highly recommand, she even gave my babies lots of gifts to bring home. It makes me feel like both my babies and I are on vacation! :)
Amazing doesn't even begin to describe the time and effort Lise puts into training Zara and taking care of her. Zara is always well behaved around Lise! She's just phenomenal with these dogs! I get updates all the time and she even gave me a pinch collar and treats for Zara. I love bringing my dog back to Lise's. I definitely recommend her.

My dog Boo had a great vacation at Lise's! He has always been excitable and likes to "be boss". When I picked him up he was calm and responded well to commands. He was like a different dog! I appreciate that Lise and Mailee took the time to work with Boo intently. I highly recommend Lise, your dog will be left in great hands!

We've never had my dog Cass boarded before. She's never spent time with anyone else but our family before so I was kind of nervous that she would be sad or act out, but Lise and Mailee were superb with her. I was sent updates of Cass, along with pics and videos and I could really see that she was well taken cared of! I really liked that Lise was always on top of it, whether it was communicating with me or making sure Cass was doing well and feeling apart of their pack. This really was a wonderful experience for me and for Cass. I, for sure, will be using their services again! I can't recommend them enough!

I highly recommend these girls if any of you need some personal training with your fur babies. They come from wealth of experiences including personal knowledge. From taking Hero to a couple different schools to our own personal training, I learned a lot about myself and what I have been doing incorrect all along. As soon as Lise and Mailee left, my husband and I immediately started practicing a few behavioral corrections with his leash pulling, doorbell ringing, basic commands, jumping on people, and Hero was better already. I will be utilizing these ladies again in the near future because they are proven effective trainers and super sweethearts. I with his leash pulling, doorbell ringing, basic commands. I will be utilizing these ladies again in the near future because they are proven effective trainers and super sweethearts. I can trust my dog with them should I ever have to travel or need more learning tools. On top of that, they drove all the way from Maplewood to me in Brooklyn. How cool is that to have a traveling dog trainer! I keep in touch with Lise and Milee frequently should I have questions regarding Hero's behaviors. They are very helpful with tips and suggestions. I've sent them videos to watch and give me pointers on what I can improve on to be a better dog owner as well. I've learned a lot about myself in the process of it all. Lise and Milee are the best dog trainers we've ever met. Trust us, you won't be disappointed!!

After reading Lise's reviews, I decided to book a reservation with her. I don't know her personally but I am glad I made the choice to pick her as my sitter. My 2 year old bull terrier (Chancho) is not very social and has anxiety problems along with mild allergies. Lise took very good care of him and would always keep me posted on how we was doing while I was on vacation (5 nights and 6 days). Lise and Mai Lee go above and beyond to make sure your dogs are feeling comfortable and getting their daily exercise. Also, Lise helped out with correcting him during walks so he does not pull me anymore. I whole heartly trust them with my crazy dog and would definately book with them again.

My husband and I are very thankful to have found Lise. We have had our two dogs for a few years and were worried that it may have been too late for them to change for the better. After several weeks of contemplating the need for a trainer, I finally booked her for my most troublesome dog. My dog (who is only 6lbs) had a slew of issues such as over-excitement, barking, anxiety, leash pulling, etc. The process for booking was easy and she was always available to answer questions prior to the confirmation.
Thanks to the kindness and guidance of Lise, we were truly able to see some positive changes in our dog. We were given the advice we needed to better discipline our dogs as their owners. Though we have only had one instance with working with her, she has proved to be very knowledgeable within that short amount of time. Our family could not be happier with our decision to work with Lise and cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for someone who genuinely loves dogs and is patient too. I personally enjoyed receiving updates from her along the way. We will definitely continue to follow up with Lise for our future needs.

Roxie had a great time with Lise, although Roxie was nervous and had anxiety... Lise made her feel comfortable and welcomed in her home. Both Lise and Mailee went the extra miles to make the dog boarding process move smoothly and conveniently for me. I had an early flight to catch and both of them made it convenient by picking and dropping off Roxie.

Not only did Lise just board my 6mos old Husky but she kept in touch with me and let me know how things are going with the training. I got pictures and videos of Roxie through out her time with them and I couldn't be more happier with the progress.


Lise is a great person who truly loves what she is doing and I am impressed by how much my pup has changed after being in her care.
I 100% recommend Lise for any dog boarding/training needs... I know for sure, I will in the future.

Dobby had another awesome vacation with Lise! I think he likes it more with Lise and Mailee then with us. Lise is an amazing caretaker and I fully trust her with my Dobby any day of the week. I won't hesitate to come back. Choose Lise, you won't regret it!

I really enjoyed working with Lise and Mailee. They were really patient and open to helping me train Jasper. They made themselves available to help me for as long as I needed them. They helped Jasper learn obedience and showed me how to provide him structure. They gave me tips on how to work with Jasper on my own and Lise is very good about checking in with Jasper's progress. It shows how much they care about dogs. They are so easy to talk to and work with, I can't wait for our next session!

Lise is so awesome! My girls were quick to bond with her and really responded to her training. I would highly recommend her!
Lise watched my 5 month old pup for 8 days while I was on a road trip. She sent me text and picture updates at least once a day to let me know how it was going. Her playful pit bull got along great with my puppy and I received numerous pictures and videos of the two of them having a wild time! Lise also worked on training with my pup, so when I got back she was SO much better on a leash!

Clydesdale had an amazing long weekend spending time with Lise and Mailee! We were lucky enough to have them take care of Clyde in our home, and they did an amazing job. We received multiple pictures of him having a blast daily (and even some videos!), and he seemed to be having an even better time than we had on vacation!

Our dog is a fairly large boxer/pitbull mix, with lots of enthusiasm and excessive excitement, especially around other dogs. Lise and Mailee handled Clyde with ease, and he got to go on long walks, on a long run in a park, and had plenty of snuggling time on the couch. I am happy to have found a friendly and extremely well qualified pair of dog sitters, and we look forward to giving Clyde more opportunities to hang out with them in the future when we go away next.

My husband and I were busy over the weekend with family so we weren't able to care for Zara with so many things going on. So we booked Lise and Mailee for that weekend. They trained and introduced her to their pooches and another dog boarding there. They updated us on a regular basis to let us know how Zara was doing. Lise was especially good on giving us tips and proper dog training techniques to continue using on Zara. Theyeven dropped her off! They're just amazing people to work with. s

Lise and Mailee are a great team when it comes to dogvacay. Lise was very proactive in learning about my dog even before the vacay had begun in order to provide a smooth transition over to them once I dropped Mochi off. Once I had dropped Mochi off, they started working right away to learn his habits and to get him comfortable in the new environment as soon as possible and playing with their dogs. During his stay I was updated with things they would do to keep his mind exercised and texts me pictures of him during his stay. I even received a video of him playing with their dog Indie, having a blast! It was clear that they treated him as one of their own as he had fallen in love with them. The whole experience was very professional and I would not hesitate to use them again!

Don't look anywhere else for care for your dog! Lise is the definition of "going the extra mile." My fiance and I were both very nervous about leaving our dog behind for the first time and we were completely put at ease knowing that our Leo was staying with Cesar Millan's twin!! I cannot talk her up enough. Not only does she have the confidence & experience to handle large (or small) dogs, she also genuinely cares about the animals and isn't in it for a quick buck. We had just adopted Leo and we were still uncertain of what kennel size he needed, long story short... our kennel ended up being a bit too small for him. Lise sent us home with a brand new XL kennel and a far more well behaved dog than before we dropped him off.
She has a way with dogs that I've hardly ever seen and I would recommend her to everyone with a dog! We will absolutely be using her services again and are so grateful for her and her love for dogs. :)

We approached the idea of boarding Chester at another home with a little trepidation, especially since Chester (a Maltese-Poodle) is often skittish with other dogs. After our first "meet and greet" with Lise, however, we felt more confident about our decision. Lise assured us that she would slowly introduce Chester to her two dogs and give him time to adjust to his new environment. Imagine our delight, when, after day 2, Lise was posting pictures of Chester going for walks with the other dogs. By days 3 and 4, he was sharing a doggie bed with them! We felt that Chester was well cared for in a safe, nurturing environment by hosts who truly loved Chester as their own. It was an excxellent experience and we would highly recommend Lise!

Lise was amazing with our 7 month old puppy, Zara! She was able to get Zara to walk next to her effortlessly. We spent an hour with Lise and Mailee and Zara was quickly learning how to properly walk next to us within just a few minutes. She gave us some awesome tips to help get Zara under control. I would definitely recommend Lise and Mailee. They're wonderful people to work with and they're naturals at what they do. I'm amazed!

Lise is amazing! She did a great job at assimilating Dobby to her home, and introducing him to her other dogs. Lise constantly updated us on what Dobby was doing, and texted us pictures of Dobby throughout our trip. It made us feel comfortable for leaving Dobby behind and very good to know that Dobby was having a great time without us as well. Lise is so nice, she even gave us a gift bag full of goodies for Dobby when we picked him up as well! We're definitely coming back to Lise next time we need someone to watch our dog again. Don't hesitate, Lise is amazing with dogs!
