Nebraska Dog Trainers is owned by trainer Lesley Price and her husband John. Lesley is excited to bring her wealth of knowledge and experience to the area. She is very experienced in training dogs for basic and advanced obedience, therapy dog certification, as well as dealing with behavioral modification.
Lesley adores dogs and has always had them in her life. She has been fostering, grooming and training dogs on a volunteer basis since 2002. In 2015, Lesley decided to make the big leap to professional dog training, opening the door to Nebraska Dog Trainers. She has finally figured out how to not work a day in her life. She currently has 4 dogs (Margaux, Dusty, Cash & Piper). Lesley’s philosophy is a dog should enhance your life not inhibit it!
