Lisa Sponsler grew up in Lexington, KY and showed hunter jumper horses. She moved to Indiana in 1986 to attend Purdue University. Lisa graduated from Purdue in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, achieving highest distinction honors. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 1994. She has been practicing as a small animal veterinarian at the Broad Ripple Animal Clinic for the past 24 years.

Dog agility competition was a natural replacement for horse shows. Lisa has trained and competed with many different breeds in agility and obedience. As a veterinarian and pet lover, Lisa appreciates the value of dog training as it relates to the human animal bond, and an enriched lifestyle for dogs. She finds positive training, including clicker training, to be a great way to train all breeds, but also particularly valuable when working with more difficult to train breeds such as the terrier and toy breeds.

Lisa lives in Carmel with her husband Andy, their son Benjamin, and their four dogs Nippet (rescued Shih-tzu mix), Jazzy (Lowchen), Shady and Zing (Schapendoes). Jazzy and Shady are certified therapy dogs with TDI (Therapy Dogs International). Lisa and Andy are volunteers for Wheatens In Need and Waldo’s Muttley Crew. They have fostered many homeless dogs over the years.
