Meet the Pack!

Lilly Esposito - owner/trainer


Hi everyone! My name is Lilly, and I am the owner and head trainer at Venture K9. My love of working with animals started at four years old when I took my first horseback riding lesson. My hobby of riding and working with horses eventually turned into a passion that I would go to college for, and led me to my degree in Equine Business Management and Riding. There is just something about creating a connection with a horse...I will never be without one! 


Although I went to school for horses, many of the same principles and ideologies can be applied to the dog training world. I've found this even more to be true getting into the dog sport world with my shepherds. I actively compete in IGP, having titled multiple dogs.

In 2014 I began working at a world renowned training facility in RI. This was an invaluable opportunity to work with many challenging dogs. In 2020 I officially started on my own journey in pursuit of what truly makes me happy - giving owners the tools and knowledge they need to get out in the world and enjoy their dogs!

I now reside and work out of Portland, CT, but I see clients in RI frequently!
