About Us

Hi, I'm Karli, the founder of Tricky Dog. 
My love of dogs started as a toddler, with our family German Shepherd Missy being my best friend, cuddle buddy and biscuit eating sidekick (sorry mum, I did actually eat the tux biscuits). 
I hold a Certificate in Animal Management - Canine Behaviour and Training, and am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers New Zealand. I've worked in Doggy Daycares, Puppy Classes and Pack Walking businesses, and run my own group and private training sessions too. 
These days I'm lucky to have two amazing dogs in my life, a Corgi x Ridgeback named Heidi, and a long haired German Shepherd named Nikan. 
As a trainer, I'm frequently asked for my recommendations on products I trust and love! Every product here is one I've tried, tested and been given the tick of approval from my own two dogs. 
Tricky Dog stocks a growing collection of toys, enrichment products and equipment for your dog. We're always searching for new and exciting products, so if you can't find what you're looking for send us an email. We would love to hear from you!
Puppy and Intermediate Classes run in four week blocks.
Classes are fully booked until April 2022.
