Lisa Wagner

Lisa Wagner lives in Vancouver, BC CANADA with her husband, two children, dogs Tux and Floyd and cats Poppy & Kermit. Lisa is Owner and Operations Director of Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid. Lisa manages Walks 'N' Wags' curriculum with support of Veterinarians and Veterinary technicians. She also manages a team of 70+ instructors who offer Walks 'N' Wags via in-class sessions.

Lisa entered the pet community in 2000 when she opened a Commercial Dog Walking and Pet Sitting company. Lisa has since obtained Certifications in Human and Pet First Aid, Dog training, and Technical Animal Rescue. Lisa is passionate about worldwide animal health and safety, which inspired her to leave pet care in 2010 to focus solely on Pet First Aid.

Lisa enjoys designing the curriculum of Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid to be both fun and informative. She loves meeting people who are passionate about animal health and safety, and sharing her time and knowledge with pet lovers around the world.

In her free time, Lisa enjoys spending time OFF THE GRID at her remote cabin. Lisa also volunteers with multiple animal aid organizations. Lisa has traveled with World Vets International to 9 developing countries for spay and neuter clinics and recently joined Canadian Animal Task Force. Lisa has also volunteered abroad with Soi Dog Foundation, Save Vietnam's Wildlife, Free the Bears and Caribbean Spay Neuter. At home she volunteers with Critter Care Wildlife Society and delivers children's educational workshops to BC SPCA.

Lisa is fortunate to have support from her longtime Administrative Assistant Vanessa Johne. Vanessa lives on a hobby farm in a small Okanagan BC community. As a former Commercial Dog Walker and Pet Sitter, Vanessa brings many years of hands-on experience to our program and you'll enjoy connecting with her too!
