Lisa Boals, DVM
As a young child, Dr. Boals had a love for animals and read any book about animals that she could get her hands on. Of her many favorites were the classic stories by James Herriot, a veterinarian who lived in Yorkshire, England back in the 1930's.
Dr. Boals has many fond memories of herself as a youngster dusting off the old microscope kept by her mother (who had been a medical technologist) to look at medical slides and the tiny creatures that lived in the water in a nearby pond. She continued to pursue those ‘creature’ interests while utilizing a scholarship to obtain her Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology at Mississippi State University in 2003. She continued on at Mississippi State for the next several years to study veterinary medicine, where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2008.
After graduation, Dr. Boals moved to Denver, which was a logical place to begin practicing the profession she loved, having first fallen in love with Colorado while visiting the state as a child.
During the many years since, Dr. Boals has continued to practice small animal general medicine in the Denver area and loves the special bond that people in Colorado share with their furry family members.
Her favorite part of being a veterinarian is being able to help lengthen and strengthen the human-animal bond through preventative medicine, proper nutrition, and good dental care. Whether she is helping puppies and kittens start off on the right ‘paw’ with their families or maintaining that strong bond through geriatric and end of life care, Dr. Boals enjoys making pets’ lives better every step of the way.
Having always loved books and movies about medical mysteries, Dr. Boals has a strong interest in diagnostic medicine and has participated in several veterinary research studies. She has also pursued additional training in cardiology, ophthalmology, cytology, dentistry and internal medicine.

Pet Behavior Specialist
Will has worked professionally as an animal trainer since 1992, focusing initially on exotic animals in zoos. In 1996, in addition to his zoo training work, he began providing in-home dog training and animal behavior consultation. He found that the same training techniques he had used with dolphins, tigers, and birds of prey in their zoo environment transferred easily to helping people with their pets in the home.
As a result, he expanded his animal training to include companion pets. With a focus on training dogs, he also works with cats, birds, and other small animals.
For over 20 years, Will has perfected his practice of training dogs and continued fulfilling his passion for improving their lives with his time-proven techniques and the use of positive communication.
Will’s training philosophy is based on three primary principles: Consistency, honesty, and rewards. He believes that training works best, not when trying to control your dog, but when you are communicating with your dog. Dogs need structure and challenges – both physical and mental – but to be happy and content, they also need praise! It is his goal to help both dogs and their owners achieve this balance in their relationship as life-long companions.
Will believes strongly in the Canine Good Citizen program and has been an AKC Approved Evaluator since 2010. He has also competed in obedience and agility with his own dogs and has added popular sporting classes to his training programs, including Scentwork and Treibball. After participating in the first US Treibball classes conducted in Colorado in 2010, Will went on to compete in the first sanctioned Treibball competition in Arizona in 2014. He is also certified as a judge and trainer for the American Treibball Association.
Will is a professional member of the Animal Behavior Management Alliance (ABMA) and participates in several professional organizations related to zoo and animal training. Always happy to help with your pet training needs, he is available Tuesday through Saturday for consults, classes, and private lessons. Learn more about our Behavior Training here.
