About Us

Bailey Lissner, Owner & Founder

Bailey brings 10 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.


Bailey's Qualifications:

- Certified as a Master Trainer at National K9 in Columbus, Ohio with certifications in: basic, advanced, and off-leash obedience. As well as tracking and trailing, search and rescue, personal protection, scent detection, and puppy foundation.

- Experience working as a dog-caregiver at C.R.C.S., a night-shift manager at On Command, and as Supervisor and Lead Trainer at K9 Games Reno.

- Seminars attended: 

Understanding K9 Behavior With Blake Rodriguez  & Tyler Muto in 2017.

Lucas Agnew Workshop: Raw Intuitive Talent – The Missing Link in 2017.

Stopping Unwanted Behaviors Dog Training Seminar with Jeff Gellman in 2019

Bailey strongly believes that every dog learns differently and needs to be treated as such, therefore she will always continue learning more by attending as many seminars and workshops as possible.

Dane Goodenough, Dog Handler

Dane really does it all around here. He often helps me clean kennels, walk dogs, pick up after dogs, supervise play groups, and so on. Although he doesn't actually partake in most of the training, he will be a huge part of your dog's life during their time here. 

Dane rescued his Pit Bull/Great Dane puppy, Ember, from the SPCA in 2018.
