Hey! Nice to meet you!

I’m Luzelle, the dog trainer here at SolutionK9! I’m also the dog trainer behind The Dog Training Lab where you can learn how to train your dog online – which is great if you’re not in Taranaki!

But enough about me! I totally know what it’s like to have a naughty dog! I got my first dog in 2007, a very naughty Dobermann called Zakkie! He stole food, pulled my arm out of its socket! Chased seagulls and cats and wouldn’t come back when I called. 

I took him to the local dog training club, and after spending weeks training Zakkie, he was STILL pulling on lead and was no better on the other fronts either! That’s not what I want for you! I actually want you to see results from your training and be able to enjoy your dog!

Because I want you to succeed, I’ve put together some online resources to help you even if you are on a limited budget! We also have some great information available for FREE! So, what are you waiting for? Dig in! 

How I became a dog trainer...

OK, so after trying Obedience and Agility and Zakkie failing at both (I just didn’t understand it, I thought all dogs loved Agility!). I thought Zakkie was just too old and I got a German Shepherd puppy called Kaz.

And I proceeded to stuff up her training too! Yup, I totally messed up her socialisation and made her aggressive to other dogs. But what I did manage to get right with her is train her for obedience competitions!

Anyway, then I got my first Malinois called Delta! Malinois aren’t usually considered to be very good pets and Delta was definitely a challenge! I was always covered in bruises, but I had so much fun training her. Anyway, she’s in the Military now, having fun!

Zakkie taught me that old dogs can learn new tricks. Kaz taught me how to help reactive and aggressive dogs and Delta taught me how to train very difficult dogs!

Now, a few more dogs later, I live with an amazing Malinois called Raven who I’ve raised from a puppy and she’s an absolute dream to live with – thanks to the lessons I learned from Zakkie, Kaz and Delta (and a few other dogs along the way) and her puppy Alita!

Why I LOVE Being a Dog Trainer

I love what I do, because being a dog trainer means that I can help dog owners not only enjoy their own dogs more NOW, but also help dog owners learn the skills they need so that they can later adopt, train and help more challenging dogs too!

Because the more skills dog owners, like yourself, have, the more dogs get to stay in homes and the less dogs will get the green needle because they couldn’t find the right humans.
