Rose Lysaght

Owner / Trainer


An animal lover from a young age, I grew up with countless dogs, cats, fish, reptiles & horses. I enjoyed riding horses, and hunted with Maramarua Hunt Club. I have been lucky enough to get back into riding over the last year and that is what I spend my spare time doing. I am a mum to two gorgeous children, Tyler & Ruby. I am a DogsNZ (formerly NZKC) registered breeder, I breed and train Rough Collies using the Puppy Culture protocol - this is my passion. I also attend Dog Shows with my Rough Collies and Chinese Crested.
We have 8 dogs:
Meeko, Saturn, Panda, Veda & Sketch (Rough Collies), Jewel (Staffy X), Baldwin (Chinese Crested) and Possum (Border Collie x)

We also have 3 cats, 4 horses & 3 birds.

Founded in 2009, Training Dogs For Life is one of Auckland's largest and most respected training schools. Primarily running puppy classes, obedience classes, games, tricks and agility classes and one on one behaviour training we are devoted to strengthening the dog - human relationship in a fun, safe and enjoyable environment. 

Rose took over the ropes in 2016, keeping the same fantastic class curriculum and expanding our services to offer overnight boarding, as well as a day stay 'social club'.
