Liz Vanderhoef, FDM

Liz Vanderhoef joins FYK9 again after training in Texas for the last 9 months. Liz began teaching barn hunt part-time at For Your K9 in 2021 and fell in love with being a trainer. She has been training full-time since January of 2022. She is a Certified Family Dog Mediator and is almost done with her Separation Anxiety Pro Trainer Certification and Master Course in Aggression Certification. Liz is also a CGC Evaluator.

When Liz isn’t helping clients meet their goals with their dogs, she is enjoying time with her two dogs, catching a baseball game and you can usually catch her with a Starbucks in her hand!Her two dogs are Ruger is  9 y/o German Shepherd and Rumor, an 8 m/o German Shepherd. They enjoy lots of time hiking, swimming, playing fetch and of course dog sports! Ruger is retired from all sports other than Nose Work, which he has a blast doing! Rumor will be participating in Barn Hunt, Nose Work, Rally, Dock Diving, Agility, and possibly more!

Liz is looking forward to jumping back into training at FYK9. She will be teaching some foundation and advanced classes while taking private clients for reactivity, resource guarding, and separation anxiety.
