Founder and Director of K9 Medical Detection NZ
Working with dogs for over thirty five years, Pauline is the author of three children’s dog safety books, a dog safety advocate and public speaker with a special interest in canine genetics and behaviour. For many years she taught domestic dog obedience for which was awarded a Life Membership. Along with her German shepherd, Blaze, Pauline trained in tracking and search work. They were also involved in canine therapy in rest homes and hospice.
Driven by the belief that we can all make a positive difference, and touched by the heart-felt stories shared by people who had lost a loved one, Pauline formed the K9 Medical Detection NZ Charitable Trust.
Motivated by her knowledge, love and respect for dogs, and a strong belief that a dog’s incredible sense of smell could be used as a non-invasive diagnostic tool in medicine, Pauline drew together a professional team and set up the infrastructure that is now K9 Medical Detection NZ.
