Lizzie Bloemer, Owner
Hi, my name is Lizzie Bloemer and I am the owner here at Rogue Hounds Training Co. I have loved dogs all my life, and took an active roll in training our family pets. But it wasn't until 2014 that I started down my dog training journey. I was working a normal soul-sucking job when my roommate brought home a new dog named Rue. Rue was sweet and loving and full of life, but she was also terrified of strangers. Over time, that fear started turning into aggression and she started biting and eventually had to be euthanized. After I moved to Colorado, I was determined to learn more about dogs and dog behavior so that I could prevent something similar from happening again. I started out working at a veterinarian's office, where I was exposed to hundreds of different dog breeds, personalities and temperaments. Then I started an internship under Spencer Bowman at Prestige K9, where I learned not only advanced obedience training, but how to rehabilitate anxious dogs, manage aggression, and stop reactivity. Once I completed the internship, I stayed on with Prestige K9 and worked my way up to Head Trainer, all the while learning more and more from other trainers and from every dog I trained. I currently live in Colorado Springs with my husband Colin, our Catahoula Leopard Hound, Jason, and our cat, Benjamin.
Hanna Juel, Administrator and Assistant Trainer
Hello, my name is Hanna Juel and I have been working with animals for the better part of 9 years. I have experience working with a wide range of animals from as small and creepy as cockroaches and mice, to exotics such as birds and reptiles, all the way to our well known and loving cats and dogs. My passion has always been animals and my drive to become a dog trainer started back in 2015 when I started working for a shelter here in Colorado. At first, I started off as a kennel technician where I cleaned and cared for all the animals there, my specialty at the time was the exotic animals. As I moved through the shelter, I landed on a behavioral position where I assessed and worked with dogs. I was a part of the behavior modification program where I would take dogs that showed fear and aggression and work with them to feel comfortable and grow some confidence before adoption. I was there for about 4 years before finally leaving due to compassion fatigue, which is a sad reality of the sheltering world. During my time at the shelter, I got my first puppy, Momo. Momo is a border collie mix that was given to me by a family friend. She and her siblings were from an accidental litter and were extremely under socialized. When Momo, came to me she had only really known the inside of the closet she lived in and the outside world was completely new and terrifying for her. She came to me with a lot of fear based behavior and became my project dog and heart dog. Today we do lots of tricks together and she goes everywhere with me. After leaving the shelter world, I worked as a kennel technician at a vet office for about a year, where learned a lot about animal medicine. I wasn't really planning on leaving until I had been given my first opportunity to become a dog trainer! So in 2020, I started my dog training journey, fell in love and continue to pursue and grow in the field today.
