About Us

Bailey Lissner, Owner & Founder

Bailey brings 15 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.
