Lisa McCluskey, CPDT-KSA, CBCC-KA enthusiastically strives to teach others about humane training and behavior practices in the complete care and needs of pet dogs. Lisa's background of working with rescue/family dogs for most of her life was the force that drove her to register at her first APDT Conference in 1997 and has kept her involved with the organization as a professional member for almost 20 years. For over five years she also served the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) Board as: an inaugural certificant, an exam committee volunteer, their Secretary, a Director and/or the CPDT Exam Chair.

Additionally, Lisa regularly offers her time pro-Bono to conduct AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluations and teach various workshops for volunteers, shelter staff, and trainers in our industry.

Lisa, her husband, and son presently reside in Seattle, Washington's Queen Anne neighborhood with their cat "Punkin' Kitty" and dog "June" (her two horses, "CC" and "Tuff", live in the Kent/Covington region). Lisa's community-based curriculums have been featured at numerous APDT conferences, and moving forward, she looks forward to continuing her work on creating universally available public-access canine education programs internationally (http://www.moongazer.com/training).
