Liz became certified as KPA-CTP several years ago and began running classes at Hightails, now hosting 4-6 week sessions most week nights at 7 pm. Classes include Canine Good Citizen, Rally Obedience, Family Dog, Tricks and Fun, General Obedience, and Foster Dog Class, to name a few! Liz trains only using positive reinforcement methods and she is greatly valued and admired by all of us lucky enough to be involved with her, pups and humans alike!
