Train with Remarkable Dog Training
Positive Training - Results That Last
Meet Flip - Your Queenstown Dog Trainer & Behaviour Consultant
Passionate. Patient. Professional. Positive. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me. I know each dog and owner is different, and I’ll work with you to get the training and guidance needed. Whether you’re thinking about getting a puppy, have a re-home, or already own a dog with behavioural problems, or want to learn something fun - I am here to help.
I'm a member of APDTNZ, IAABC, Dogs NZ and use positive, scientific based training to get the best long lasting results. I've been a professional certified dog trainer for over 10 years in New Zealand. I am also a Certified Trick Dog Instructor, Pro Dog Trainer, Pet First Aid Instructor & Canine Conditioning Fitness Coach. I'm a self-proclaimed dog training geek; along with many professional canine behaviour qualifications, I'm always up-skilling, learning, adapting and geeking up.
The original Remarkable Dog is Alfie (Cavoodle), the coolest, most clever dude that came into my life, that sadly left too soon in Feb 2021 at 8yrs old. I miss him so much. I had Alfie from a pup. He is NZ's first Trick Dog Grand Champion & Canine Conditioning Fitness Champion. He has his ADXA GOLD (Agility Dog Excellence Advanced) Gold, JAB (Jumpers Advanced Bronze) and competed in the highest levels in Dog Agility. I've currently 2 rescued Bearded Collie's Jack & Bear plus new addition a Cavoodle pup, Gizmo. Jack is also a Trick Dog Grand Champion & has his Level 3 CCF. Bear is an Expert Trick Dog, Pet First Aider & helps with the QLDC Kids with Schools programme. Gizmo is currently starring in my puppy programmes.
My aim is that everyone has fun with their dog, whether it's a nice loose-leash walk, dog relaxing whilst you drink at a cafe, great manners, to off leash recall to fun tricks to scent work to dog agility!
Enjoy your time with your dog - Love your dog - Everyday is a gift.
"Had a great group session with Flip, super informative and fun! Left with heaps of tips and tricks to put into play at home too."
"Flip's a passionate, talented, and empathetic dog whisperer, she's been a god send - helping us with our three dogs; especially with our wee Barney helping to build his confidence after a traumatic confrontation with another dog........Thanks so much Flip"
"Flip is amazing, not only with the dogs but with neurotic owners such as myself! Jake loving his first “Kinderbarken “
