About Us

Bailey Lissner, Owner & Founder

Bailey brings 13 years of experience in rescue, rehabilitation and behavior modification to Ideal Canine. Bailey started by volunteering for 7 years and thousands of hours at the Nevada Humane Society and S.P.C.A. These experiences are what led Bailey to develop a passion for fostering and training the dogs who did not thrive in shelter environments in order to increase their chances at getting adopted. Pit Bulls quickly became a huge part of Bailey’s life because they are one of the most misunderstood breeds in the world.

The Ideal Canine Difference

What separates us from other trainers?

In-Home Board & Trains
We firmly believe that in order to truly improve your dog, we as trainers must first earn your dog's trust. The fastest way to do so is to invite your dog to stay in the comfort of our home. This also gives us the opportunity to work on your dog's house manners.
The Ideal Canine Family
Once you have gone through one of our programs, you are considered family. 
We understand that it takes a lot of work to keep up on the training so we are here to help every step of the way. Check out our Unique Client Benefits.
 Real World Training 
An 'Ideal Canine' is defined by their ability to succeed in any given environment. During training, your dog will be exposed to a plethora of different training environments. Such as: the Sparks Marina, Home Depot, Scheels, hiking trails, neighborhood distractions, local parks, and so many more!
