Hi, I’m Flip
Dog Behaviour Specialist and Trainer

Flip’s is Auckland’s premier dog training business, owned and operated by Flip Calkoen. Flip is one of New Zealand’s most respected and accomplished dog trainers.

At Flip’s, we have developed a number of specialised training programs to accelerate training and gain optimum results for you and your dog. These programs have been developed based on Flip’s success training thousands of dogs over his forty-year career.

All our clients start with a one-hour Consultation with Flip at their home. It is an opportunity for Flip to assess your dog’s temperament, discuss any challenges you have and recommend the most appropriate path forward.

Contact Flip on flip@flips.co.nz to book in for a Consultation and see just what a difference Flip can make for you and your dog.
