TEAM

Lisa Levett     

Business Co-Owner

Lisa has three beautiful squishy face dogs, Betty the Bullmastiff, Ronnie the Boxer and Boris the Brussels Griffon.  She loves nothing more than hanging out with them, and they are one of the reasons why she changed career paths from corporate life to the life of dogs.

 

Prior to The Hound Lounge Lisa previously owned  a dog walking, home boarding and training business.  Lisa set the business up many years ago and gained valuable experience working with a huge variety of dog temperaments and breeds.

 

During this time Lisa became a certified dog trainer and attended/still attends numerous workshops and seminars to continue her learning in the dog world.  

 

She enjoys being covered in dog hair, slob and constantly smelling of dog treats.

During her spare time, Lisa enjoys eating chocolate, drinking coffee and sleeping.

Maddie Curr Smith    

Business Co-Owner

Maddie has always been interested in animals, and from a young age was surrounded by pets of all shapes and sizes. As she got older however, she realised that dogs were where her true passion lay!

Before going into business at The Hound Lounge, Maddie was a veterinary nurse at Annandale Animal Hospital. In her 5 years there, she was able to grow and develop her love for dogs and explore her interest in dog behaviour and training. As well as this, she was able to develop many skills to help dogs not only with their physical health, but also their mental wellbeing.

 

During her time at Annandale Animal Hospital, she was also in charge of teaching and coordinating the puppy preschool classes, which developed and strengthened her love for all dogs.

Maddie currently shares her life with three beautiful dogs of her own, Peanut the Spoodle, Pretzel the Whippet and Squid the Greyhound, also two Cats, Noodle and Giblet.  Theres a theme here!

Maddie eats just enough to keep a cat alive.
