Meet Liz, a dog whisperer with a trio of tail-wagging troublemakers under her wing. From reactivity to resource guarding, if your pup has a quirk, Liz has the magic touch to tame it. Her journey into the wild world of dog training began with a flirtation with Barn Hunt at For Your K9 in 2021. Little did she know, she was about to embark on a canine crusade that would lead her to full-time training glory come January 2022.

Armed with certifications like a Certified Family Dog Mediator and a graduate of the Aggression In Dogs Master Course by Michael Shikashio, Liz is committed to expanding her knowledge faster than a dog can scarf down a bacon treat.

But let’s not forget her dynamic doggy trio! Meet Ruger, the seasoned 10-year-old German Shepherd, whose retirement plans include sniffing out barns and hunting for treats. Then there’s Rumor, the 2-year-old German Shepherd, whose boundless energy rivals a pack of puppies on a sugar rush as she conquers every dog sport known to mankind.

And now, joining the ranks of Liz’s furry family is the newest addition: Roulette, a 17-week-old German Shepherd pup with a penchant for mischief and puppy dog eyes that could melt even the coldest of hearts.

When she’s not wrangling her furry companions or brewing up training magic, you can find Liz at a baseball game, Starbucks cup in hand, cheering on her team with the gusto of a Labrador chasing a tennis ball.

But wait, there’s more! Liz isn’t just a dog trainer extraordinaire – she’s also a marketing maestro, lending her expertise to all things FYK9. From wrangling clients to wrangling canines, there’s no challenge too big for Liz and her trusty sidekicks.

So, whether you’re dealing with a doggy dilemma or just in need of a caffeine fix, Liz is your go-to gal. With her by your side, every day is a tail-wagging adventure.
