Lisa Monteith, Owner/Operator

Hi. My name is Lisa Monteith. I am the Owner, Trainer, and Groomer at K-9 Curriculum, Inc. I am a certified  pet trainer and certified pet groomer. I am trained in Pet First Aid and CPR. So, whether your dog is training with me or being groomed they will be in good hands.

I am a life-long animal lover and dog enthusiast. My motto is "The Best Things in Life Are Furry!" I was born in Asheville, North Carolina, and raised in Glenville, North Carolina. I learned my love for animals from my Mom and Dad. I have always dreamed of training and working with animals and thought its time to bring those dreams to life.

I enrolled in the Penn Foster Grooming Program and the Dog Obedience Training Program at Animal Behavior College and in February 2018, I attained my Certified Professional Dog Trainers Certificate. We offer all positive reinforcement and lure training.

When you think about all the dangers your dog could be exposed to in this world, it is hard to believe that the leading cause of dogs being surrendered to shelters and/or ultimately euthanized is behavior problems. Having a good relationship with your dog from the beginning, whether you get them as a puppy or adopt an older dog from a shelter is extremely important. K-9 Training Classes go along way to help you get this relationship off on the right paw.

My pets are Jeter, a recently adopted 12 yr old beagle, and a tabby cat named Fiddlesworth (9 yrs..?). I have been working with pets professionally for over 10 years. I have been a groomer for about 8 years and graduated recently from dog training school in the summer of 2022, specializing in behavior modification and scent detection.
