Lyz Knight (she/her)
IAABC-ADT, CPDT-KA, FFCP
Lyz became interested in training after adopting her first rescue dog in 2014. After initially being introduced to training methods that mainly utilized corrections for “bad” behaviors along with rewards for “good” ones, Lyz’s curiosity grew and she began pursuing more in-depth education about animal behavior and the science of learning. As she discovered all of the benefits of modern humane training methods, she ditched the correction-based training and became certified as a positive reinforcement and fear-free trainer! Her experience with her own dogs coupled with her expertise as a multi-certified trainer allows Lyz to approach your training needs with empathy and compassion as well as professional knowledge.
Lyz loves working with puppies and with guardians of nervous and reactive dogs to help them see their dogs blossom into confident, comfortable pups. She also loves supporting dog guardians who want to change from correction-based training and don’t know where to start! When she’s not training your pet, Lyz is hanging out with her senior rescue dog, Molly, or enjoying hobbies like reading, crafting, and caring for her many houseplants!
