With 20 years of experience training and working with dogs, Liz founded K9 Services NZ Ltd in 2004 after completing a national certificate in animal management specializing in canine behaviour and training becoming one of the 1st certified trainers in NZ. Liz is a member of the Pet Professional Guild and The Association for Force-Free Pet Professionals.

 

Liz teaches group classes and private lessons focusing on everything from raising, training, and socializing a puppy to considerably more complicated behavioral issues (rowdy dogs, fearfulness, dog/dog reactivity, resource guarding, and other forms of anxiety and aggression).

 

Liz is dedicated to positive training techniques and is committed to bringing these principals into the lives of dogs and their families. She believes training and enrichment are the keys to overcoming the everyday challenges of the urban dog and to building everlasting human/canine relationships.

Xena & Gunner

Both Xena & Gunner came to me as young puppies through no fault of their own, and are quite possible the happiest dogs in the world, as they spend their time training such as Nose Work, Tracking, Tricks, Obdience and being my assistants in classes and workshops, favourite pasttimes swimming, ball chasing, and generally enjoying life. They think I have the best job in the world, because it means they get to hang out with me all the time!
